Personalised Hull City Football Book - Gift Details
Let us introduce you to the Hull City Football Book, full-to-bursting with reprinted reports on the one and only Tigers, from the team’s unforgettable victories to the not-so-good moments. Since the team formed in 1904, the club has witnessed many great players and coaches, all documented here in the newspaper book.
Picking things up in 1907, just three years after the club’s formation, this Hull City Football Book follows the Tigers’ fortunes through to the end of last season. There’s no denying that the Tigers have had quite a few interesting years so far.
There’s little doubt that despite Hull’s decent history, the club’s biggest moment came as recently as 2008. To any City fan, their promotion via the play-offs to the Premier League marked the Tigers’ most successful and lucrative period.
Their stay was sadly short lived, but using reprints of original newspaper reports, this football book is the perfect way to relive their two-season stay. But as you’d expect, promotion seasons during the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 80s are also covered in depth, as well as the exploits of legends like Andy Davidson, George Maddison, Chris Chilton and, more recently, Michael Turner.

Hull City AFC was founded in 1904. The club strived for a place in the top division for over one hundred years, coming close on several occasions before the outbreak of the First World War. The Tigers eventually won promotion to the Premiership in 2008. A key turning point had been Adam Pearson’s purchase of the club in 2001. Pearson brought financial stability to Hull and appointed Peter Taylor as manager. Taylor led Hull City to the Championship via back-to-back promotions and built the confidence needed for the Tigers to keep improving. Phil Brown took over as the manager of Hull City in 2006. He led the club to the Championship Play-Off Finals two years later. Hull secured promotion to the top flight by beating Bristol City 1-0 at Wembley Stadium. The goal was scored by local player Dean Windass.
A Hull City Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Tigers. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Hull 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 Hull City memorabilia collection.
This Hull Football Book opens with a famous draw against Spurs in 1907, featuring a picture of the Hull keeper rising to reach a corner kick. It goes on to cover a selection of great matches through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.
Early memorable games featured in the Hull City Football Book include the 10-3 thrashing of Wolves in 1919, the emphatic 5-0 win over Middlesbrough in 1922, and the 3-2 win over Everton in the fourth round of the 1927 FA Cup. The Gift Book features dramatic pictures taken at the 1930 FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal, which Hull eventually lost 1-0 in a tense replay. You can also read about other exciting cup ties, including the sixth round FA Cup game against Manchester United in 1949 - for which 75,000 people queued for tickets - and the sixth round Cup match against Chelsea in 1966.
The Gift Books relive the excitement of Billy Bremner scoring on his debut for Hull in the 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest in 1976. It follows Hull City’s meteoric rise from Division Three strugglers in 2002, to Premiership players in 2008. Newspaper coverage also includes the appointment of Peter Taylor as manager, Hull’s 2-1 win at Yeovil to clinch promotion to Division Two in 2004, promotion to the Championship in 2005 and promotion to the Premier League in 2008. A great article on the Tigers’ triumphant play-off final at Wembley is one of the highlights of this Hull City Book.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Hull’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts and a great addition for a collector of Hull City memorabilia.
