Personalised Blackpool Football Book - Gift Details
Let a Blackpool fan relive their team’s rich history through newspaper coverage, written by reporters who were present at the match at that time. These stories draw from the UK’s largest newspaper archive of the last 100 years, so the reader can get a real feel for the way things were to help bring their memories alive.
This Blackpool Football Book gets the ball rolling in 1929 and covers all of The Seasiders biggest successes, most notably their post-war victories and the memorable 2009/10 play-off win. Formed in 1887, the team have since had some incredible moments to look back on.
Ask almost any Blackpool fan which two periods they’d like to relive in their club’s history, and there’s a darned good chance they’ll point to 1953 and 2010. It’s easy to see why. Blackpool’s post-war period was hugely productive, culminating in the ‘Matthews Final’ of ’53 in which Stanley Matthews and Stan Mortensen helped the Tangerines beat Bolton Wanderers 4-3.
Fast forward 57 years and the club made a triumphant return to the top flight with an epic 3-2 over Cardiff City in the play-off final. Happily, through reprints of original reports and newspaper coverage, both successes, as well as many more are included in this football book.
