A massive new book, Birmingham City: The Complete Record - is being published later this year (October), and supporters who pre-order a copy will have their names included in the list of subscribers inside the impressive volume. BUT HURRY! PRE-ORDERS MUST BE RECEIVED BEFORE THE DEADLINE - 20TH AUGUST 2010! Birmingham City:  The Complete Record Despite having won only one major trophy in their 130-year history – the League Cup in 1963 - Birmingham City is still regarded as one of the big names in British football.  Founder members of the Second Division in 1892, they were the first English team to reach a major European final, losing to in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1960, and played in a second final a year later. Blues have also appeared in two FA Cup finals and in one other League Cup final. Many great players have served the club down the years including international goalkeepers Harry Hibbs and Gil Merrick, record appearance-maker Frank Womack, champion goalscorers Joe Bradford and Bob Latchford and the world’s first £1 million footballer, Trevor Francis. The club has also had some fine managers, among them Harry Storer, Arthur Turner, Jim Smith and Alex McLeish. Written by Tony Matthews and a foreword by the late Gil Merrick, this book - an up-date of the 1995 Complete Record of Birmingham City - is again packed full of facts and figures, match reports, player profiles and much more. How do fans pre-order a copy of Birmingham City: The Complete Record and get their name printed in the Roll of Honour? The book costs just £25.00 (plus p&p) All fans need to do is order their copy before the 20 August 2010 and let us know the name they would like inscribed in the book.
