You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the extensive history of the England international cricket team. 

  • 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
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

Now updated with England’s utterly captivating victory, with extensive coverage of the 2019 event as it unfolded! Relive the history of cricket on the international stage through newspaper clippings in this personalised English Cricket book. With coverage beginning in 1905, this timeless piece of cricket memorabilia takes you back over a century, revisiting all the key moments from Lord’s, Edgbaston, The Oval and beyond, right up until the present day.

Despite the first record of an England national cricket team stretching back as far as 1739, success on the world stage has proven elusive for the most part. Often the bridesmaids, England have been runners-up at the Cricket World Cup three times, in 1979, 1987 and 1992, and in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004 and 2013. Still, there have been some great moments along the way. In 1938, England hit 903 runs in a Test match against Australia, with 364 of them coming from Len Hutton, both records which stand to this day. The team’s highest One-Day tally came a lot more recently, as they went 444/3 from 50 overs against Pakistan in 2016. And in 2005, England registered perhaps their most famous Ashes victory, as Messrs Flintoff, Pietersen, Vaughan, Trescothick and Strauss, along with numerous others, combined to put an end to almost twenty years of Australian dominance.

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

Wonderful present

Kim Marshall Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 21 Jun 2020

Very disappointed with the detail and text size. It’s not a cheap item and is a lovely idea of a gift but let down by the presentation of it. Text is so small that a magnifying glass is needed if you don’t have excellent vision. Would have been helpful to have something to advise this if purchasing the A4. The book was just short of £60 and was bought as a gift and for that price I just expected more. If you do purchase it choose the A3 and hopefully it will have better detail taken. Gift box had air bubbles around the edge where it hasn’t stuck properly and the corners on the book itself were a bit messy.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    As these books are made up of the Daily Mirror newspaper, this newspaper is a tabloid size, which is A3. To make the A4 size, we have to shrink down the newspaper to an A4 size which does make the text smaller than how it would have been originally printed.

    We are not able to locate any communication to our Customer Service Team in regards to the quality of the product you have received. We have therefore passed your order to our Customer Service Team who will request some photos showing the issues you have raised and they will be able to look into this further for you.

    Once again, please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,

Great product

Laura Janes Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 16 Dec 2019

Good quality and really nicely put together. A really lovely gift.

S Stewart Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 5 Dec 2019

I bought this for a hard to buy for son-in-law. It arrived in good time, it was well packaged and I'm pleased with the quality. Although it's not a read from cover to cover book, I think he will be interested to flick through. I found the adverts in the newspapers very interesting, and quite nostalgic.

Kal Knell Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 25 Nov 2019

Sharon Hilton Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 5 Sep 2019

Nice gift for someone difficult to buy for, overall good quality although due to some very old newspaper print some pages better than others

vita Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 26 Aug 2019

Quite pricey, but worth getting for special occasion. Personalised messages makes it even more special. My husband loves cricket and he said it was the best present ever!

Lovey

Bought two books with presentation gift boxes for baby granddaughters. I am very pleased with the way these turned out they look lovely. They are Christmas gifts so have not been given to the recipients yet but am sure they will be very well received and will be something to keep.

Morgan Lemen-Warry-Smith Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 26 Nov 2020

Wonderful service!

The book was exactly what I was hoping. My child’s name was beautifully written throughout the story and it even included a picture at the end. Delivery was also fast and efficient. Thank you so much.

Dad in his 70s loved it

I bought this gift for my dad as he spends a lot of time reading, especially this year with everything that has happened regarding social restrictions. He was honestly overjoyed with it and amazed by the amount of information contained.
