Born in Hartlepool, County Durham, Taylor began his football career at Middlesbrough's youth academy, first joining at age nine. [3] He eventually progressed through the youth ranks as schoolboy, trainee and senior professional before signing his first professional terms upon turning seventeen. [4] Taylor started out as a left midfielder in the successful 2004 FA Youth Cup campaign with the likes of David Wheater and Adam Johnson. [5] On 12 March 2005, he signed his first professional contract with the club. [6]

Middlesbrough

Taylor was named as a substitute in several UEFA Cup games during the 2004–05 season but did not leave the bench. [7] However, he was plagued with ankle injury that affected most of the 2004–05 season. [8]

With only Franck Queudrue able to play at left-back, Steve McClaren brought Taylor back from Bradford City the following 2005–06 season, where he had impressed on loan. [9] Taylor made his Middlesbrough debut, starting a match and played 61 minutes before being substituted, in a 7–0 loss against Arsenal on 14 January 2006. [10] A month later on 23 February 2006. He made his UEFA Cup debut against VfB Stuttgart in the second round of the Round of 32, in a 1–0 loss, but saw the club through to the next round on away goal. [11] Since making his debut for the club, he found himself in and out of the starting line–up for the rest of the 2005–06 season. [12] During the 2005–06 season, Boro reached the FA Cup semi-final and the 2006 UEFA Cup Final. [13] Taylor played in several Premier League matches and the FA Cup semi-final to save Queudrue for the UEFA Cup tie with Sevilla. [14] His impressive form meant he was unlucky to miss out on a starting place against Sevilla. [15] At the end of the 2005–06 season, he made twenty appearances in all competitions.

Ahead of the 2006–07 season, newly appointed Manager Gareth Southgate revealed the club is in talks with Taylor over a new contract. [16] However, the arrival of Julio Arca for the 2006–07 season in replacement of the Fulham-bound Queudrue saw Taylor lose his place. [17] After Arca's injury during the first game of the season against Reading, Taylor made his first appearance of the 2006–07 season, starting the whole game, in a 2–1 win against Chelsea. [18] Taylor started in the next seven matches before being dropped from the squad for the next two matches. [19] But he made returned to the starting line–up against West Ham United on 11 November 2006, helping the side kept a clean sheet, in a 1–0 win. [20] Since returning, Taylor deputised in the left back position and continued to do even Arca returned from injury, which he eventually moved to playing in the central midfielder position and eventually made it his own after impressing Manager Gareth Southgate, as well as, stuck a partnership with fellow Boro academy graduate Stewart Downing on the left wing. [21] His first team run ins earned him praise from Colin Cooper, saying: "He's better than me at the same age." [22] Despite suffering from injuries later the 2006–07 season, [23] Taylor made forty–one appearances in all competitions.

At the start of the 2007–08 season, Taylor continued to establish himself in the starting eleven, playing in the left–back position. [24] He then set up the club’s first goal of the game for Wheater, in a 2–0 win against Birmingham City on 1 September 2007.

[31] During a 2–1 win against Stoke City on 30 August 2008, Taylor suffered an injury in the 19th minutes and was substituted as a result. [32] But he made a quick recovery and played in the midfield position after coming on as 70th minutes for Didier Digard, in a 2–1 loss against Portsmouth on 13 September 2008. [33] However, Taylor suffered an injury that saw him missed one match. [34] But he made his return to the starting eleven, in a 5–0 loss against Chelsea on 18 October 2008. [35] Since returning from injury, Taylor regained his first team place for the next eight matches. [36] During a 3–1 loss against Bolton Wanderers on 22 November 2008, Taylor found himself in an altercation with a fan and apologised soon after. [37] This last until he suffered a knee injury that saw him missed one match. [38] Taylor returned to the first team from injury, coming on as a late substitute, in a 2–0 loss against Fulham on 20 December 2008. [39] Since returning from injury, however, Taylor lost his first team place to Emanuel Pogatetz and spent months on the sidelined, though he appeared in the first team on two occasions.
