Personalised Blackburn Rovers Football Book - Gift Details
Football fans. Some of them border on the obsessive, right? They’ve got the shirts – home and away. They go to every game – home and away. And they lead the terrace sing-song – home and away. Founded in 1875, the team have since earned themselves a serious following of fans.
So just what do you get the football fan who’s already got everything his team has to offer? Why, the Blackburn Rovers Football Book, of course! As one of only three founder-member clubs of both the Football League and Premier League, Blackburn Rovers are steeped in history. Starting in 1907, this Football Book recounts it all.
Blackburn Rovers are perhaps best known as the only club to have ever broken the monopoly held on the Premier League by United, Chelsea and Arsenal. With the club’s saviour and benefactor, Jack Walker looking on, manager Kenny Dalglish guided the club to the title in ’92 – with goal machines Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton provided the ammunition.
Here’s your chance to relive, through reprints of original newspaper reports, this golden period. Plus, you’ve got coverage of the side’s league titles in 1912 and 1914, their Cup Final victory in 1928 and much, much more.

Blackburn Rovers FC formed in 1875 and became a founder member of the Football League three years later. The club enjoyed much success in the early decades and won five FA Cups by the end of the 1920s. Rovers had also become First Division Champions in 1912. The club slipped out of the First Division in 1966 and found it difficult to regain their position at the top of the game. Joy returned to Ewood Park in the 1990s however, as lifelong fan Jack Walker bought the club and invested time and money into the team. Blackburn Rovers won promotion to the Premiership in 1992 and became champions three years later. A significant part of this revival was the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as manager.
A Blackburn Rovers Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the club. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the team. Being able to personalise this Blackburn Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Blackburn Rovers memorabilia collection.
This Blackburn Football Book opens with a FA Cup tie against Spurs in 1905, and goes on to cover many of the great games of the 20th Century and the present era.
Memorable stories in this Blackburn Rovers Football Book include winning the League in 1912 and the epic 1928 FA Cup win over Huddersfield. The Gift Book also features reports on promotion to Division One in both 1939 and 1958, the FA Cup Final versus Wolves in 1960 and the 7-2 thrashing of Spurs in 1963. Read about the appointment of Kenny Dalglish as Manager in 1991, promotion to the Premiership in 1992 and of course becoming Champions in 1995. More recent coverage in the Blackburn Book includes the appointment of Mark Hughes as Manager in September 2004 and an interesting selection of strong performances under his stewardship.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Blackburn Rovers’ history makes these books truly memorable Blackburn Gifts and a great addition to a collection of Blackburn memorabilia.
