Congratulations to Marcus Tavernier, who has recently signed a 2 year professional contract with Middlesbrough FC. Playing in midfield, Marcus is the second in the family to sign a pro contract after older brother and Rangers defender James Tavernier.  Marcus was an important part of the Boro team that reached the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League last season. Now a regular for Paul Jenkins’ U23 team, Tavernier scored a fine individual goal in Tuesday’s match against Cambridge United’s senior side in the Checkatrade Trophy. We wish Marcus every success as he begins his career in football!
