You'll love this because...

Through newspaper headlines of the time, you can relive the most memorable moments in the history of the Scotland national team.

  • Personalise with any Name and Message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1921 to the present day

Relive all the greatest moments of the Scotland national football team through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised Scotland Football book. With coverage beginning in the 1921, this fine piece of Scottish football memorabilia guides you through almost a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from the World Cup, European Championships and more, right up until the present day.

Scotland have played in two European Championships and eight World Cups, most recently in 1998 when they were only narrowly defeated by eventual finalists Brazil in the opening game. Perhaps the greatest moment in Scottish World Cup history was Archie Gemmill’s jinking run and finish against Holland in 1978 to put the Scots within touching distance of the second round; unfortunately they would go out on goal difference. 1967 saw as sweet a day as any for the Tartan Army, as Scotland became the first team to defeat England’s World Cup winners, and at Wembley to boot.

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

this was a gift for my son, who loved it.Quality is excellent, content is good and was sent really quickly.would recommed to all.

allybeeTrustpilot product review 5 star rating29 Aug 2018

Am highly pleased with this purchase, the quality is excellent and the ability to add a personal message makes it even better.I cannot speak highly enough of this, it was bought as a gift, and I wish someone had bought it for me. The quality is, if I am honest, far higher than I was expecting and it was delivered ahead of schedule, considering the time of year and that it was late being ordered, I think that is great service.I would have no problems using this service again.

I ordered this book for my brother in law who is a massive football fan for a landmark birthday. The order came swiftly and I was delighted with the standard of finish of the product. My brother in law totally loved it and has barely put it down. He loves the articles and thought it was a really unique gift. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has a football loving family member /friend and are looking for a different and special gift.

Excellent service and product.

Excellent service and product. Bought as a 50th Birthday Gift for a work colleague. Can't wait to present it to him. Also bought the boxing one for my husband at Christmas and he loved it.

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.
