Product Description

You'll love this because...

You can relive the history of Sunderland AFC through decades of newspaper headlines.

  • 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 1908 to the present day

Wise men say… you’ll love recounting the history of Sunderland AFC via newspaper clippings in this personalised Sunderland book. With coverage beginning in 1908, this magnificent piece of Sunderland memorabilia guides you through over a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from Roker Park, to the Stadium of Light and beyond, right up until the present day.

It’s fair to say that Sunderland hit the ground running after joining the Football League in 1890. The Black Cats won the First Division in only their second year of competing, and retained the title the following year, before winning a further two titles in the next nine years. All in all, Sunderland have won 6 League titles and 2 F.A. Cups, the second of which providing possibly the greatest day in the club’s history, as they defeated Leeds, the reigning cup champions and Division One runners-up, by a single Ian Porterfield goal at Wembley. To this day, that side are one of only eight teams from outside the top flight to win the F.A. Cup. Up until their relegation in 1958, Sunderland had played 68 years of uninterrupted top-flight football, a record that stood for the next forty years.

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

Bought for 50th birthday present for a Sunderland FC supporter who collects memorabilia. He was greatly impressed with the book and is looking forward to reading every detail. All in all good value and to him priceless.

cjbuk74 Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 August

This was purchased as a gift and given the 2013-2014 rollercoaster season Sunderland have had, 6 points off Newcastle, change of manager, 2 great cup runs & reaching the final of the Capital One Cup, the unbelievable relegation battle etc etc... I waited for the update to be carried out before the purchase was made.The book looks pretty good and is a great concept however it seems that there has been little thought given to what to include for the 2013-2014 update. There is no mention of the change in manager, no mention of either cup run let alone the cup final itself which is arguably the biggest game in SAFC's recent history !I appreciate this book covers the history of SAFC over many years but I feel this misses the point as far as SAFC's season for 2013-2014 is concerned.I would advise to check the contents page before you purchase.

Unusual 50th Birthday Present

It was birthday present for my sister. She loved it. It did take longer to arrive than I thought it would, hence 4 stars and not 5, but it reached her in time for her birthday as I ordered it about 2 weeks ahead of time. A really nice unusual gift for a special birthday

Following a problem with the web page…

Following a problem with the web page when ordering,'In The Book' have been very supportive in sorting this out. Thank you

Shelby Jones Maddox Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 20 January

Great product

Overall, the book is fantastic! Beautiful colors and well made. I first ordered from In The Books because my daughter's name is unique, and she can't find anything with her name in stores, and I wanted something special for her birthday coming up. It was easy to order, and I got a confirmation email immediately. The only trouble I had was the order wasn't showing up on my account and I could not track it. I got very scared that this was a scam and that I would not receive it. Sure enough it arrived the next day (1/19/19), earlier than expected (est. DD was 1/22-24). I would like to purchase more, but they are a little pricey, which is to be expected since they are personalized. A suggestion I have would be to consider reviewing your prices to make them more affordable. Thanks so much!

Great gift idea for a little princess!

Proud Grandma Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 January

I love these books

I love these books. I bought three for my grandchildren. The only reason I didn't give this product a "5" rating is because I have found that in one book a word is missing in the second sentence of the book. In another, there is a verb missing in the first sentence.

SUE SOUTHAMPTON Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 January

Child's name book.
