  • 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.

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.

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.

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

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.

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!
