Personalised Derby County Football Book - Gift Details

There’s no denying it, there are presents aplenty when it comes to buying gifts for football fanatics. There are tons out there, from the latest replica scarf to match day tickets, so it really isn’t too hard to buy them something they’ll appreciate. But what happens when you’re after a football gift that’s a bit different?

Well, that’s where our personalised football books come into play. This particular tabloid-sized hardback features 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 charts your chosen club’s memorable moments using original, firsthand accounts from reporters of the time.

From 1912 through to the end of last season, this Derby County Football Book follows the Rams through all their ups and downs, including Brian Clough and the glory days of the 1970s.

This football book uses reprints of original newspaper reports to tell the story of Derby County from 1912 through to the end of last season. It focuses on all the club’s major achievements, including their brief stay in the Premier League following 2007’s fantastic 1-0 win over West Brom in the Championship play-off final. But of course, no history of Derby County would be complete without more than its fair share of coverage from the Brian Clough era of the 1970s. Unquestionably the Rams’ most successful period, the one-and-only Clough guided his side to their first ever Football League Championship in 1972.

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 Cottagers

Derby County FC was originally a cricket team. A football side was formed in 1884 as a means of keeping everybody together during the winter months. Derby became a founder member of the Football League in 1888 and the club has since won each of the top three division titles. Derby County also won the FA Cup in 1946 after finishing as runners-up on three occasions. Former players Brian Clough and Dave Mackay led the Rams through a golden era of success in the late 1960s and 1970s. Derby County earned promotion to the First Division in 1969 and won the title three years later. The Rams went on to reach the semi-finals of the European Cup in 1973 and Derby won a second top flight league title in 1975. Derby County enjoyed six consecutive seasons in the Premiership between 1996 and 2002. The Rams returned to the Premier League in 2007, having won the Championship Play-Off Finals.
