Personalised Notts County Football Books - Gift Details

At I Just Love It, our undisputed heavyweight of football gifts is the personalised football book. We’re the original purveyors of the tabloid-sized bad boy, which features reprinted reports from the Daily Mirror on your chosen team – Notts County. Things kick off in the early part of the 20th century and finish at the end of last season, so you’re looking at a reportage-based history of your team’s best bits from the last 100 years or so.

From 1908 to the end of last season, this Notts County Football Book charts the ups and downs of the world’s oldest football club. Highlights include various championships and play-off successes.

Like so many clubs, Notts County haven’t had it easy in recent years. But it wasn’t that long ago – in 1992 – that the Magpies were in the country’s top flight. It marked the ‘culmination’ of lots of yo-yoing between leagues – a trend that recommenced afterwards. Using reprints of original newspaper reports, this football book perfectly illustrates the old adage – there’s never a dull moment supporting County. It also covers the club’s numerous league and play-off wins, as well as providing a fantastic way of reliving the exploits of County legends like Les Bradd, Albert Iremonger, Brian Tubbs and Perdo Richards.

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.
