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.

LJ Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 8 August

Bought it as a present for my husband ... I think he will love it..

pinkwindmill Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

Bought for my father's 80th, and he loved it. Lots of names and articles from his youth (the golden age of cricket, apparently...)I upgraded to the red leather embossed cover, just to make a bit more special, and it was worth it - looked and smelt great.I bought it on a special deal, which made it better value, in my opinion.

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.

Amazing Spider-Man deluxe book. My grandson is going to love it. His photo looks great on the book. Thankyou.

Roger Bird Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 August

Book well presented

Book well presented, but would have been better if personalised first page had name and greeting on the page instead of a stick on label. Paper used was of average weight and quality. Fast delivery though.

David Thomas Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Funny book, but not full size!

Funny book, looks just like a Haynes manual BUT it is probably half the size so bear that in mind. I had the box just to make it a bit more special.

Charlotte R Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 20 August

Customer service was excellent and friendly

Customer service was excellent, I received a quick friendly response to my query as I was worried that I would not receive the delivery in time for my friends baby shower, so they upgraded my delivery to priority. I received the book on time and my friends daughter loved her 'Big Sisters are Great' personalised book, she loved finding her name on the pages!

Rebecca Denham Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 August

The book is amazing and worth every…

The book is amazing and worth every penny spent. The fact that it’s personalised to the person it’s for, is a bonus. And makes this book so unique. Can’t wait for my little cousin to receive it. I know she will love the stories in it as much as I did when I was younger.

Ms Conway Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 August
