22 May 2018 : Cranie Released By Boro After Championship Play-Off Interest Ends
Former Yeovil Town loanee Martin Cranie is to leave Middlesbrough over the summer. The 31 year old, who had more recently been on the books of Barnsley and Huddersfield Town, becomes a free agent at the end of a six month stay at the Riverside Stadium. He made nine appearances during that three month spell.

Cranie was born in Yeovil, and went to Bucklers Mead School and Birchfield Community School in the town, but was snapped up by Southampton's Academy system whilst the Glovers were still a non-league side, ultimately being given his professional debut by Paul Sturrock in May 2004. His time with Yeovil Town came as part of a loan spell under Russell Slade during the 2006-07 season, making twelve appearances for the club.

His one and only goal he scored for the Glovers was a rather unfortunate one. In August 2014, he made a return to Yeovil as a Barnsley player, but ended up netting for his home town club after he turned in a cross from Jakub Sokolik. On a technicality, he is therefore the last Yeovil-born player to score for the club at Huish Park.

Given he was part of Huddersfield Town's team that was promoted into the Premier League at the end of the 2016-17 season, and was good enough to get picked up by a Middlesbrough side that reached the Championship play-offs during the 2017-18 season, he'll almost certainly get picked up by another Championship side over the summer.
