A FORMER News Shopper sports journalist has produced the perfect Christmas present for Crystal Palace fans – a book charting the Eagles’ memorable promotion campaign to the Premier League.

Gordon Law, who co-founded the Holmesdale Online website, wrote ‘Return to the Premier League: The remarkable story of the 2012/13 Crystal Palace team’ which takes in all the defining moments of the season over 74 colour pages, from the brilliant victories to the woeful defeats.

The book is packed with stunning action photography, the story of 2012/13, views of the players and management, facts, stats, player profiles, the goals of the season, a quiz and all the new fixtures.

So if you aren’t sure what to buy your Eagles supporting loved one this Christmas, Mr Law says look no further.

He explained: “You have a Palace side which started the campaign as one of the favourites to be relegated and endured their worst league start in four decades but confounded the critics to go up through the play-offs.

“Little money was spent on a threadbare squad, we lost manager Dougie Freedman to league rivals Bolton and managed to overcome an end-of-season wobble to make it to the top flight in dramatic style.

“This souvenir book is a lasting memento of a magical season.”

‘Return to the Premier League: The remarkable story of the 2012/13 Crystal Palace team’ costs £7.99 (plus postage and packaging) and can purchased online at holmesdale.net/book
