Personalised Huddersfield Town Football Book
- Gift Details
The Huddersfield Football Book is made up of tabloid-sized reprints of the original newspaper coverage from the date. And we’re not just going back a few years here – you’ll read reports from the early part of the 20th century. It’s literally a year-by-year account of the club’s history, as reported at the time.
From 1920 to the end of last season, this Huddersfield Town Football Book takes an in depth look at all the Terriers’ ups and downs, including the club’s league titles and cup wins of yesteryear.
It doesn’t take long for this book to spring to life, thanks to Huddersfield’s glory days of the 1920s. Using reprints of original newspaper reports, it covers first the Terriers’ FA Cup win in 1922, followed by the club’s three successive league titles between 1924 and ’26. The first side to do it, it’s a feat only replicated by the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.
As you’d expect, many of the subsequent highs and lows also feature, along with the exploits of former greats like Kevin McHale, Trevor Cherry, Les Massie and Derek Stokes, among many others. There's truly no other football book that records every detail like this personalised edition.

Huddersfield Town FC was founded in 1908. Huddersfield had tried to form a football team in previous years, but the popularity of rugby in the town had made this difficult. The club gradually became established alongside the rugby side, but financial crisis threatened to destroy the Terriers. There was a risk of merger with rivals Leeds United in 1919, but Huddersfield Town survived and they soon stormed to the top of the football league. The club won three consecutive First Division titles between 1924 and 1926 and finished as runners-up in the following two seasons. The Terriers have also enjoyed cup success. Huddersfield won the FA Cup in 1922 and they appeared in further finals in later years.
A Huddersfield Town Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Terriers. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Huddersfield 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 Huddersfield memorabilia collection.
This Huddersfield Town Football Book opens with the amazing victories of the 1920s. The Gift Books include reports on the Terriers’ defeat of Nottingham Forest in 1920, to gain promotion to Division One, and victory against Preston North End in the 1922 FA Cup final. Another highlight of the Huddersfield Book is the newspaper coverage on the hat-trick of Division One Championships in 1924, 1925 and 1926.
Read about the famous FA Cup final versus Arsenal in 1930, where a German Zeppelin was seen flying over Wembley Stadium. You can also relive the tension of the 1932 FA Cup sixth-round clash with the Gunners, which was played in front of a record home crowd of 67,008 people. A variety of high scoring Huddersfield wins are incorporated in this unique Gift Book, including the 6-1 hammering of Chelsea in 1933, the 8-2 massacre of Everton in 1953, the 5-1 away win over West Ham in 1960 and many more. You will find additional articles on the record £48,000 transfer of Denis Law to Manchester City in 1960 and the Terriers’ Second Division title win in 1970, which guaranteed the club’s return to top flight football after a fourteen season absence.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Huddersfield Town’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts and a great addition for a collector of Huddersfield memorabilia.
