Since joining the Football League in 1907, Fulham Football Club has enjoyed eight promotion seasons, three from the second tier to the top flight, four from the third to the second and one from the fourth to the third. Each of these seasons had its own special features, memorable games and key personalities. This book tries to recapture some of that excitement as the individual seasons are put in the context of the club's history, the season discussed as it unwound, the key personalities and turning points identified plus a comprehensive statistical appendix attached to each chapter. Written by club historian and director Dennis Turner (who personally can recall all but two of the eight promotions) and, with the exceptions of the two earliest campaigns, the chapters are illustrated from the remarkable archive of club photographer Ken Coton. It is a timely reminder to many supporters who now take Premier League football for granted, that getting to where they are today has been a long, tortuous and occasional painful path.
