Personalised Charlton Football Book - Gift Details
For some of us, football is a way of life. For others, it’s the blight of it and drives us completely bonkers. For those of you who don’t share the same level of fervour as your loved one for this popular ball game, it can be incredibly hard to know what to buy them, especially if they have everything already, from the latest kit to hats and scarves decorated with their favourite team.
Luckily, our Personalised Charlton Football Book has the answer, a book made up of tabloid-sized reprints of original newspaper coverage, starting in the early part of the 20th century and going right through to the end of last season. It can be personalised, too, by leaving a Message on a certificate in the opening page and, depending on the style of cover you choose, adding his or her name to the front.
One of south London’s finest, Charlton Athletic have a good few honours to their name, all of which are covered in this football book. Things kick off in 1929 and wrap up at the end of last season.
In 1929 the Addicks won the Division Three South title. And with it began Charlton’s most successful period during the 30s, in which the club’s highest league finishes were recorded. Following the Second World War, the club won the FA Cup in 1947, before a number of lowlights culminated in the stays in the Third Division during the 70s, and the club’s so-called homeless Wilderness Years of the 1980s. Fortunes changed for the better in the 1990s, with two stays in the Premier League – including seven years between 2000 and 2007. Using reprints of original reports and newspaper coverage, this football book covers the Addicks fortunes over 80-odd years.
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.
Personalise the Charlton Football Book by featuring the recipient’s Name and a Message on the certificate on the title page. The recipient’s Name can also be gold embossed on the front cover.

Charlton Athletic FC formed in 1905 and the club has gone on to enjoy several periods of top flight football and FA Cup success. The Addicks turned professional in 1920 and pushed for the First Division title towards the end of the following decade. Charlton finished the league as runners-up in 1937 and enjoyed more consistency over the following years. The Addicks reached the FA Cup final in 1946 and won the competition in 1947.

Following a long period in the lower divisions, Charlton Athletic won promotion to the Premiership in 1998.
