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 .
Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Hello?

Unacceptable delivery length especially for paid delivery
I purchased 2 baby books on 05/07/2021 and paid £4.99 for the delivery. The delivery suppose to arrive between 7 and 9 of July, 2021. I bought these books for my pregnant wife birthday on the 13/07/2021. I received the item on 22/07/2021 which already way passed my wife birthday. My worst online shopping experience ever!
