Personalised Newcastle United Football Book
- Gift Details
Across the country, there is probably no set of fans more passionate (or longer suffering) than Newcastle United’s Toon Army. Unfortunately, from the numerous near-misses of the 90s (Premier League runners-up twice and F.A. Cup beaten finalists twice) to the highly controversial reign of Mike Ashley, being a Magpies fan has never been the easiest experience.
The good news is, things just got a little bit more enjoyable, courtesy of the Newcastle United newspaper history book! Delve into over a hundred years of Toon history, right up until last season, showcased through news articles exactly as they appeared at the time of print.
This Newcastle Football Book begins with Newcastle's victorious division one championship of on 1st May 1905, detailing the incredible success of the Toon Army. Following on from this impressive start, the book features all of the Newcastle’s early success, before going on to cover everything since, including their push for the Premier League, up to the latest season.
Diehard fans of the Toon Army will get a unique window in the past. Supporters can look back on the most glorious moments that landed Newcastle where they are today, using reprints of original newspapers, all collected in this momentous edition.
Things open in 1905 with Newcastle’s first league title and their first Cup Final appearance. In the immediately following years, the club would go on to win the league again in 1907 and 1909, as well as appearing in the Cup Final four more times – winning it in 1910.
As you’d hope, this is all covered here, as is the league and cup successes of 1924, 1927 and 1932. The glory years of the 1950s also feature, along with the exploits of Jackie Milburn and Bobby Mitchell. And if you fast forward 40-odd years, you’ll also find the Toon Army’s gallant efforts to secure the Premier League under Kevin Keegan.

Newcastle United FC was founded when two Newcastle football clubs merged in 1892. The Magpies enjoyed much success at the beginning of the twentieth century, winning the First Division title in 1905, 1907 and 1909. Newcastle United also won three FA Cups by the time the league took a break for the Second World War. The club won the competition on three further occasions in the 1950s. Newcastle qualified for European competition in the late 1960s and won the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1968, beating Ujpest Dozsa 6-2 on aggregate. Despite reaching League Cup finals in the 1970s, the Magpie’s form began to decline. By 1992, Newcastle United was struggling at the bottom of Division Two. Kevin Keegan was appointed manager and he turned the team’s fortunes around. King Kev’s side were known as “The Entertainers" due to their attacking brand of football. Fortunately, the Magpies were successful as well as attractive to watch. Newcastle United finished in second place in the First Division in 1996 and 1997. The club also qualified for Europe and won the Intertoto Cup in 2006.
A Newcastle United Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Magpies. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Newcastle United 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 Newcastle United memorabilia collection.
This Newcastle Football Book opens with the club’s FA Cup final against Aston Villa in 1905. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and highlights from the present era.
Some of the top stories featured in this Newcastle Football Book include reports on the club becoming League champions in 1907, 1909 and 1927. The Gift Books also feature details of FA Cup triumphs in 1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952 and 1955. Relive the victorious Fairs Cup final of 1969. Alternatively, you could cast your mind back to some of the Magpies’ most emphatic domestic wins, such as the 7-1 win over Manchester United in 1927 or the 5-0 win against the same team in 1996. The Newcastle Football Books incorporate articles on the signing of Malcolm MacDonald for £180,000 in 1971, Keegan scoring the winning goal on his debut in 1982 and Beardsley joining the club for £1.5m in 1993. The Gift Book also looks back at the signing of Newcastle legend Alan Shearer for £15m in 1996.
More recent coverage in this personalised Newcastle Football Book includes the takeover of Newcastle by Mike Ashley, and the return –and subsequent departure - of Kevin Keegan as manager.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Newcastle United’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts and a great addition for a collector of Newcastle memorabilia.
