Personalised Norwich City Football Books - Gift Details

Football enthusiasts are funny sort. To non-enthusiasts, it’s merely a sport, but to fans of the beautiful game it’s like a religion. Thus, with religion, comes complete and utter commitment – footie lovers are totally diehard to the core. So what on earth do you buy them when their birthday or Christmas rolls around?

One seriously big hitter is this brilliant Norwich Football Book, which traces the team’s history through reprints of original reports.

Beginning in 1908 and going right through to the end of last season, this Norwich City Football Book features promotion campaigns, League Cup wins and everything else in between.

It wasn’t very long ago that Norwich City was punching with the country’s best. A third place finish in the inaugural Premier League season saw the Canaries qualify for the UEFA Cup – a competition that included a fantastic 3-2 aggregate win over Bayern Munich. As you’d expect, it’s all covered here using reprints of original newspaper reports, as are the club’s League Cup successes in 1962 and 1985, and the recent promotion campaigns. You can also look forward to reliving all the drama of numerous East Anglian derbies, as well as the exploits of legends like Ron Ashman, Ralph Hunt and Johnny Gavin.

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 Canaries

Norwich City FC was founded in 1902. The club survived early financial problems and began to find its feet in the 1950s. The Canaries reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1959 and won promotion to the Second Division in the following season. In 1962, Norwich beat Rochdale FC 4-0 on aggregate to win the second ever League Cup competition. The Canaries were promoted to the top flight in 1972 and the team reached their second League Cup final at the end of the season. Although Norwich City lost on this occasion, they beat Sunderland 1-0 to win the League Cup again in 1985. Norwich achieved a third place finish in the inaugural Premiership season. This led to qualification for the UEFA Cup. The club had previously been denied their rightful European qualification due to the aftermath of the Heysel tragedy. Financial problems resurfaced for the Canaries as the decade continued, but help came from an unexpected quarter. Television chef Delia Smith and her husband Michael Wynn-Jones famously invested money in Norwich City in 1996.

The Norwich City Football Books cover some major European games, with great articles detailing the Canaries’ contests with prestigious European clubs. Norwich overcame the odds to beat Bayern Munich 3-2 on aggregate in 1993 and they also took on Inter Milan. Other highlights featured in these Gift Books include reports on the first game at Carrow Road in 1935, the fire of 1984, the appointment of John Bond as manager in 1973 and Delia Smith becoming a majority shareholder in 1996.
