Play up Pompey! Relive the history of Portsmouth football club through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised Portsmouth book. With coverage beginning in 1920, the year they joined the Football League, this magnificent piece of Portsmouth memorabilia guides you through over a century of key moments from Fratton Park and beyond, right up until the present day.

Portsmouth’s first piece of silverware came in 1939, as they captured the last F.A. Cup contested before World War II with a 4-1 win over Wolves. Their greatest ever success would come just after the war and under Bob Jackson, winning back to back league titles in 1949 and 1950, to this day a feat managed by only four other post-war teams. It would be a long wait until Pompey’s next major trophy, 58 years in fact, with the drought eventually ended in 2008 as Harry Redknapp’s flamboyant side captured the F.A. Cup against Cardiff City. Redknapp would also guide the team to their first top-half finish in the top flight since 1955, and then repeat the feat the following year.

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

KarenTrustpilot product review 5 star rating25 Feb 2021

Very good, unusual item. I bought it for my friend who loved it. The football history of course is the main focus but the changing fashion, haircuts and the historical context seen through other ads in the book.

Kay LawsonTrustpilot product review 5 star rating22 Feb 2021

Bella Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 3 Aug 2021

Not impressed with customer service

I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?

    Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.

    Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
