Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings, you can relive the history of Watford football club.

  • 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 1920 to the present day

Reacquaint yourself with the history of Watford football club through newspaper headlines in this personalised Watford football book. With coverage beginning in 1920, the year they joined the Football League, this magnificent piece of Watford memorabilia takes you through almost a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from Vicarage Road and beyond, right up until the present day.

In 1976, Elton John was hardly a name synonymous with professional football. But when he took over as chairman of Watford, something stirred in the Hornets for the first time in their history. At that point, the club had only played above the third tier for three years of its entire existence, incidentally at the beginning of that same decade. But through Elton’s ownership, Graham Taylor’s management and John Barnes’ skills on the pitch, Watford climbed from the Fourth Division all the way to the top flight in only five seasons. The ascension would incredibly continue, with Watford winning four of their first five games of the 1982/83 season to go top of Division One, a mere seven years after they had been rock bottom of Division Four. They would finish the campaign runners-up to Liverpool, and follow that up by reaching the F.A. Cup final the following year.

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

Brooksie Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

My son was very pleased with this unique birthday present. He is twenty-eight years old and has been a Watford fan for many years. Looking through the newspaper reports brought back lots of memories of the different matches he had been to. It will always be a reminder to him of the good times he had.

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.
