Product Description

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
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

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.

PleasedCustomer Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Bought for my brother's 60th Birthday and he's a fan ofcricket, facts&figures and history - fitted the bill perfectly. Really well presented and produced too. Very classy- he was thrilled!

EdLev Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

This is a gift for a 60th birthday of a long standing friend and cricket enthusiast. We grew up together in the 1960's and 70's enjoying playing cricket and this book provides a real heart beat to the international cricket during those years. I am sure he will enjoy it for many years to come. I stumbled across the gift almost by accident but it is just what I was searching for.

book beautiully presented and delivered within 5 days of order, would reccommend this company for it's uniqueness

BT57 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Presented by my wife with the challenge of buying a 70th birthday present for someone who I rarely meet, but who I know loves cricket, I was not full of enthusiasm. Mr Google led me to this site and I bought an embossed version of this book and it looks great and came in bespoke packaging that ensured it was in perfect condition. Seeing the reports on the major cricket stories was really good, very much enhanced by being able to read adjoining articles which often added perspective and interest. Needless to say, the book went down extremely well with the recipient and won me major brownie points with my good lady. Result!

Fast service, good quality. Brought a smile to my otherwise glum brother's face on his 50th birthday

bigg2810 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Bought this lovely leather bound book with 100 years of cricket headlines.Will be an excellent birthday present for a true cricket lover and an ex cricket player.Would recommend to anyone to buy this idea of a present as there are other options depending on the persons passion.

TGally57 Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 August

This was a present for my boss who has everything a man could ever want or need. I was struggling to find something for his birthday & as he is a mad cricket fan this ticked all the boxes.

ironmac Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

I bought this for my friend I'd known since school days, who was celebrating his 80th birthday......and who insisted on NO PRESENTS. To say he was blown away by the book would be an under statement.....especially when he saw his name on the cover in gold block.As both of us played cricket together the book will give him many hours of happy reading, and will also remind him of events in the world of cricket that he had probably forgotten.

I always read reviews before purchasing…

I always read reviews before purchasing anything online and I was a bit sceptical about a purchase because of a couple of reviews I read. When I received my order, I couldn't have been happier! The quality was just as I had hoped, beautiful and personalized. It will make the perfect gift!!

The book is great. My 8 year old grandson loves it. Unfortunately due to an error on my part, the photo I uploaded was erased somehow.

Perfect! Cannot fault this experience at all

I came across this site, without ever hearing of it before! Thanks to Google ads! So glad I clicked the link as I found the perfect book for a little boys birthday present - it was a dinosaur book, personalised! Was really happy with the quality of the book, I was a bit nervous about how the photo would come out but it was clear and the perfect size! Delivery was quicker than expected. Overall happy with the product and customer service! I have recommended this to friends
