|Simon Beaton||War-time guest player.|
|Alex "Sandy" Brown||A free-scoring forward came down from Scotland to play for Preston North End and Portsmouth before joining Spurs to contribute goals in every round (including two in the final and one in the replay) that helped them win the FA Cup in 1901 as a Southern League side. 64 goals in 84 games showed his instinct for putting the ball in the net and his ability soon came to the attention of Portsmouth, where he stayed for a season before moving to Ayresome Park. 15 goals in a two season stay at Middlesbrough came before moves to Luton Town and Kettering Town before returning to Scotland.|
|Allan Hall||Signed by Boro from Doncaster Rovers in March 1928 and scored on his debut, but failed to get a regular place in the side.

Spurs got their money back on him, when he moved to Blackpool in March 1934.|

|Peter McWilliam||Managed both clubs.|
|Mido||Strong-minded Egyptian forward, who had trouble with his weight at Spurs, despite the fact that on his day, he could be a handful. Left to join Boro, when it looked as though he would not be getting selected as first choice.|
|Graeme Souness||Having come through the ranks at the Lane, Souness thought he should be getting more first team exposure. Bill Nicholson disagreed and the Scot wanted away, because he was "homesick", so he got a move to Middlesbrough, where he played from 1973 to January 1978.|
|Terry Venables||Managed both clubs.|
|Jonathan Woodgate||Middlesbrough born, centre half Woodgate started with Leeds, before moving onto Newcastle United and Real Madrid before signing for his hometown team in 2006.
