Southampton Football Newspaper Book. Relive those glorious moments of your favourite team captured in newsprint. From the early 20th century to the recent past, each book affords a unique perspective on your team or sport’s colourful history. They are not written by someone looking back in time, but by reporters who witnessed the games and events as they unfolded and in a language of the time. Starting with coverage of Southampton’s 1908 win over Southern League champions QPR, this book charts a glorious history of great games and League and Cup titles through the decades of the 20th century. Top stories include gaining promotion to Division 2 in 1922, and Division 1 in 1966, beating Portsmouth 4-0 in 1975 and Spurs 5-0 in 1985. Read about Laurie Mc Menemy’s first game as Manager in 1973, the fantastic FA Cup triumph against Man Utd in 1976, the signing later that year of Alan Ball, Kevin Keegan in 1980, Peter Shilton in 1982, and Bruce Grobbelaar in 1995, Le Tissier’s farewell match in 2002 and much much more. A unique and wonderful gift and must have for all Southampton fans.
