  • Personalise with any Name and Message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1921 to the present day

Relive all the greatest moments of the Scotland national football team through newspaper headlines of the time in this personalised Scotland Football book. With coverage beginning in the 1921, this fine piece of Scottish football memorabilia guides you through almost a century of history, revisiting all the key moments from the World Cup, European Championships and more, right up until the present day.

Scotland have played in two European Championships and eight World Cups, most recently in 1998 when they were only narrowly defeated by eventual finalists Brazil in the opening game. Perhaps the greatest moment in Scottish World Cup history was Archie Gemmill’s jinking run and finish against Holland in 1978 to put the Scots within touching distance of the second round; unfortunately they would go out on goal difference. 1967 saw as sweet a day as any for the Tartan Army, as Scotland became the first team to defeat England’s World Cup winners, and at Wembley to boot.

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

Print so small it was difficult to read

  • In the Book Team 11 May 2022

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Our Sports Books are made up using the Daily Mirror newspaper, which is printed as an A3 tabloid size. As this book only makes in an A4 format, the contents has to be shrunk down from A3 and therefore this will make the headlines and articles smaller. The Scotland Football book that you have ordered starts from 1921 when the print was also generally smaller until recent years.

    As a gesture, we have applied a further 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you, which we hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team

    Thank you very much for your reply and kind gesture – I appreciate the fact that it is newspaper print and so tends to be bit more difficult to read

allybeeTrustpilot product review 5 star rating29 Aug 2018

Am highly pleased with this purchase, the quality is excellent and the ability to add a personal message makes it even better.I cannot speak highly enough of this, it was bought as a gift, and I wish someone had bought it for me. The quality is, if I am honest, far higher than I was expecting and it was delivered ahead of schedule, considering the time of year and that it was late being ordered, I think that is great service.I would have no problems using this service again.

Customer service very polite and helpful, willing to solve the issue with a coupon for discounts which would not apply. Solution was to offer me a refund for the correspondent discount, which I agreed. Thank you, Rachel

Good quality products

The products and the service are excellent but the package used for posting is not good. I ordered a book and it came with two corners damaged, it was replaced but the second book arrive with one corner damaged. I have managed to make the corner better. I suggest they put extra protection on the corners. I would order again as the products are good
