Product Description

You'll love this because...

You can recount the key events in Coventry City history exactly as they appeared in print at the time. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1910 to the present day

Play up Sky Blues! Relive the history of Coventry City football club through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised Coventry book. With coverage beginning in 1910, this magnificent piece of Coventry memorabilia guides you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from Highfield Road, the Ricoh and beyond, right up until the present day.

The revolution in Coventry took place in the 1960’s, under legendary manager and personality Jimmy Hill. During Hill’s six years at the helm, he changed the kit to an all-Sky Blue number, and also devised the “Sky Blue Song”, the team’s most famous chant to this day, as Coventry rose through the divisions, reaching the First Division for the first time ever in 1967, and incredibly staying there for 34 years, making them one of the four longest-serving top flight clubs at the time alongside Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton. But the greatest day in Coventry history is without question the 1987 F.A. Cup final victory, one of the most exciting finals ever, in which the widely unfancied Sky Blues toppled Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 after extra time.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Bought for my son and his fiancée. Unusual gift which was so well received. They really enjoyed looking back at things that jogged their memories as well as things that were before they were born. Various options available according to budget. Nice touch to be able to add personal message. Great gift.

After seeing a friends present I decided to purchase one for another friends 50th birthday, The website was extremely easy to use and gave very good actual examples of what the product would look like with my personal choices and wording.payment was really easy online too and the delivery was quick, 3 days ! Everything about this purchase was a pleasure and I did it during the night whilst working away in South Carolina.The book contains pages from the sports section showing reports on Coventry City FC's important matches from the very early years of being formed right through to last season, 2012/13. A quality unique gift which I knew nobody else would have purchased.I would definitely recommend this personalised gift,

I always read reviews before purchasing…

I always read reviews before purchasing anything online and I was a bit sceptical about a purchase because of a couple of reviews I read. When I received my order, I couldn't have been happier! The quality was just as I had hoped, beautiful and personalized. It will make the perfect gift!!

The book is great. My 8 year old grandson loves it. Unfortunately due to an error on my part, the photo I uploaded was erased somehow.

Perfect! Cannot fault this experience at all

I came across this site, without ever hearing of it before! Thanks to Google ads! So glad I clicked the link as I found the perfect book for a little boys birthday present - it was a dinosaur book, personalised! Was really happy with the quality of the book, I was a bit nervous about how the photo would come out but it was clear and the perfect size! Delivery was quicker than expected. Overall happy with the product and customer service! I have recommended this to friends
