Middlesbrough experienced another satisfactory season, finishing 12th in the Premiership. They never looked like qualifying for Europe, but were never in any danger of relegation. Nor did they make much of an impact in the cup competitions.
Middlesbrough's kit was produced by Errea. The home shirt consisted of a red shirt with vertical navy and white stripes (repeated diagonally on the arms), white shorts with red stripes and red socks with navy and white trim. The away strip consisted of a white shirt with purple hoop framed with a black line, purple collar and shoulder bars,again with black trim, white shorts trimmed with purple and black and white purple topped socks.
