Personalised Coventry City Football Book - Gift Details

Fast-moving, lively and full of surprises, football is, perhaps, the most-watched sport in the whole world, not least the most played hobby. It’s a national passion and a game that connects people, everywhere and anywhere.

Unbelievably popular, our personalised football books will thrill any fan. Full of newspaper cuttings and articles on all the spectacular moments in their football team’s history, these football club books can be personalised with any Name in gold lettering on the front, making a truly awesome gift.

Going back to an FA Cup tie against Forest in 1910, this Coventry City Football Book goes on to cover all the club’s greatest moments – not least a certain game on the 16th May 1987.

The first 20-odd years of this football book follow the Sky Blue’s rise to prominence – a rise that really kicked in during the 1930s. It was a decade that saw Clarrie Bourton lead the scoring charts with 49 goals in 1932, a 9-0 win over Bristol City two years later, and a Third Division title in ’36. As you’d expect, the Jimmy Hill era of the 1960s features heavily, as does a May day in 1987 when the club secured its one major honour following a dramatic 3-2 victory over Tottenham in the FA Cup final. Using reprints of original reports and newspaper coverage, all this, in addition to full coverage of Coventry’s 34 uninterrupted years in the top flight is present and correct.

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.

Enjoy a Newspaper History of the Sky Blues

Coventry City FC was founded in 1883 and the club began to enjoy success in the 1930s. Clarrie Bourton became one of the top centre forwards in the country and the Sky Blues soon rose to the Second Division. Coventry missed promotion to the top flight by just one point in 1938 and the Second World War unfortunately destroyed the club’s momentum. The Sky Blues finally entered the First Division in 1967, under the management of Jimmy Hill. Coventry finished the season in sixth place three years later, earning the club qualification for European competition. The Sky Blues stayed in the top flight for an impressive thirty-four year run, despite coming close to relegation on multiple occasions. The fighting spirit of the side was also evident in Coventry City’s 1987 FA Cup win. In a match often described as one of the best ever finals of the competition, Coventry came back from behind to beat Spurs 3-2.

A Coventry City Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Sky Blues. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Coventry City 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 Coventry memorabilia collection.

Coventry City Football Book Coverage

This Coventry Football Book opens with an FA Cup tie against Nottingham Forest in 1910. It goes on to include a selection of other great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.

Top stories in our Coventry Football Book include the 8-1 thrashing of Crystal Palace in 1935 and the 4-1 defeat of Leicester City in the 1952 FA Cup. You can also read about the appointment of Jimmy Hill as Manager in 1961 and Coventry becoming Division Three Champions in 1964. The Sky Blues would go on to become Division Two Champions in 1967 and an article on this great win is also featured in the Coventry Book. Coverage turns to European competition as it moves into the 1970s. The Gift Books incorporate several exciting encounters on the continent, including the 2-1 defeat of Bayern Munich in 1970. Relive the glory of Coventry’s historic 3-2 win over Spurs to secure the FA Cup in 1987 and the team’s battles against the top sides of the Premiership. The Gift Book also reflects upon the ending of an era at Highfield Road, with the 6-2 pounding of Derby County in the last ever match at the old stadium.

Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Coventry City’s history makes these books truly memorable Coventry gifts and a great addition for a collector of Coventry City memorabilia.
