Personalised Bristol City Football Book - Gift Details

Whether you’re buying for a seasoned spectator or the next Wayne Rooney, our Bristol City Football Book is bound to please. These tabloid-sized hardbacks feature reprinted reports on your chosen team from the Daily Mirror. Things kick-off during the early part of the 20th century before concluding at the end of last season. As a result, the book records your selected club’s unforgettable moments using original, direct accounts from reporters of the time.

From 1905’s 1-0 win over Arsenal, to the conclusion of last season, this Bristol City Football Book features the Robins’ most memorable moments and matches from the past 100-odd years.

Having got the ball rolling in 1905, things really start to pick up pace four years later with City’s FA Cup Final against Manchester United. The 3-1 win over Watford that secured the Division Three title in 1923 also features, along with the club’s clashes with local rivals, Bristol Rovers – most notably the 4-0 and 5-3 wins in ’47 and 56, respectively. All the promotions and relegations are here, too. While in more recent terms, the book also covers – through reprints of original newspaper reports – the club’s efforts to regain top-flight status, including their narrow defeat at the hands of Hull City in the 2008 Championship play-off final.

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.

Personalised Bristol City Football Book

Enjoy a Newspaper History of the Robins

Bristol City FC was founded in 1894, with a budget of just forty pounds. The team merged with local side Bedminster in 1900 and enjoyed a great early run of form. The Robins won the Second Division in 1906 and shot to a second place finish in the First Division the very next season. After reaching the FA Cup final in 1909, Bristol City suffered an unfortunate drop in form. The club returned to top flight football for a second spell in the late 1970s.
