Personalised Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Book - Gift Details
If you’re a football fan, you’ll know it isn’t just a sport. It’s more like a religion. And with religion comes total devotion, from the Premier League to the Blue Square Bet – football fans are properly diehard. For them then, we have the ultimate gift.
The Personalised Wolverhampton Football Book very much lives up to its name, with the chance to include your chosen Name on a certificate on the inside front page. Better yet, for a small amount extra, you can also have the name embossed on the front cover. While on the subject of front covers, various types are available, from a canvas effect to full-on leather.
Kicking off in 1908 and finishing up at the end of last season, this Wolves Football Book charts the successes of a footballing Godfather. It includes cups, titles and one great player after another.
Steeped in history, Wolverhampton Wanderers have enjoyed their fair share of success – the vast majority of which is covered here, using reprints of original newspaper reports. You’ll find articles on the club’s three First Division titles, as well as three of their four FA Cups, two League Cups, a Football League trophy and their recent stints in the Premier League. Just as importantly, though, it also gives you the chance to relive the contribution of Wolves’ legends, including the likes of Stan Cullis, Bill Slater, Steve Bull and, most famously of all, the great Billy Wright.
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.

Personalised Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Book
Enjoy a Newspaper History of Wolves
Wolverhampton Wanderers FC was formed as St. Luke’s FC in 1877. The team emerged at St. Luke’s School in Blakenhall and they later merged with the Wanderers Cricket and Football Club. Wolves became founder members of the Football League in 1888 and won two FA Cups by the First World War. Stan Cullis took over as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1948 and he led the team to great success. Wolves won the FA Cup in 1949 and 1960, and the side won three First Division titles during the 1960s. Wolverhampton Wanderers took part in a succession of European floodlit friendlies in the 1950s. The club’s victory over the highly rated Honved was a particularly famous occasion, which contributed to the formation of the European Cup. Wolves enjoyed a great European campaign in 1972, reaching the UEFA Cup final. The club lost on this occasion, but Wolves won the League Cup twice during the next ten years.
