Incredible newspaper coverage from 1908 to the present day
Recount the history of Stoke City football club via newspaper clippings in this personalised Stoke City book. With coverage beginning in 1908, this magnificent piece of Stoke City memorabilia guides you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from the Victoria Ground to the bet365 Stadium and beyond, right up until the present day.
The second-oldest football club in the world, Stoke were one of the twelve founding members of the Football League in 1988, a quarter of a decade after the club’s own inception. The club’s sole major trophy to date came in 1972, when they defeated Chelsea 2-1 to lift the League Cup, in a season where they also reached the F.A. Cup semi-final. Stoke’s two most lengthy periods of top-flight stability came in the 1930’s-40’s, when home-grown hero Sir Stanley Matthews fired the side to two 4th place finishes (still their all time-high) and the 60’-70’s, with World-Cup winner Gordon Banks between the goalposts.
Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

A good read , but if I have one complaint it was that some very relevant moments in the club's history were surprisingly missed .

I purchased this book for my husband's birthday and he is so pleased with this gift. It's a very interesting book with lots to read about. I am really impressed with this book and think it's an excellent gift for all those football lovers out there. I would definitely recommend this book to all my friends. My husband even wants to purchase a second book to take out to South Africa for a gift for his son who lives out there.

Bought this as a present for my son, in his thirties, an avid Stoke City fan. Absolutely delighted with it. Delivered promptly, nicely boxed. Excellent historical document and fascinatingly entertaining. Will be treasured. Thanks.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!
DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM
wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry.
Would not recommend to anyone.
Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better.
Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet.
If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night.
I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order.
Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories.
If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer.
In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.
A great cover and fronts piece.
However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Absolutely brilliant company
Absolutely brilliant company. Bought the Leeds united memory book It is brilliant cant wait to give the gift because I know the recipient is going to be absolutely amazed by it.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name.
The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
