Personalised Norwich City Football Books
- Gift Details
The Canaries first formed in 1902 and have since built a leading reputation with football fans. Speaking of which, this newspaper football book on the one and only Norwich FC is just what every fan needs. The coverage featured is rarely-seen, looking back on the last 100 years of football history.
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. There’s a multitude of incredible victories in there too, especially the 2010 promotion to the Championship League.
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.

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.
A Norwich City Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of the Canaries. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Norwich City 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 Norwich memorabilia collection.
This Norwich City Football Book opens with the club’s 2-0 win over Cup holders Sheffield Wednesday in 1908. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.
Top games featured in this Norwich City Football Book include the 3-0 win over Liverpool in the 1937 FA Cup, the convincing 4-0 win over Spurs in 1979 and the 8-0 thrashing of Southampton in 1989. The Gift Book revisits the glory of lifting the League Cup trophies in 1962 and in 1985. It also incorporates reports on promotion to the First Division in 1972, and to the Premiership in 2004. 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.
Newspaper coverage continues right up to the end of last season. This unique insight into Norwich City’s history makes these books truly memorable gifts and a great addition for a collector of Norwich City memorabilia.
