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, including the famous League and Cup wins, memorable games and the stars themselves – past and present. 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.
So what are I Just Love It’s football books? Well, they’re tabloid-sized books that include reprints of original newspaper reports on any given team, starting in the early part of the 20th century and concluding at the end of the 2010/11 campaign. In short, they’re a history of your team through newspaper reports.
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.
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.
All the articles are printed on luxury paper and independently cut and bound in a hardback book.
Now available with colour print option for coverage from 2006 onwards.

Perfect for that special gift.
My original purchase should have been for 2 baubles however I mistakenly only bought one which I didn't realise until it was delivered to me. I have subsequently ordered another one on 1 December and am still awaiting delivery and its now 16th December. The morale of the story is to ORDER EARLY!!
