Read about some of the most memorable moments from the Rugby League Challenge Cup as they were reported on at the time.

  • 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 1929 to the present day

Relive all the most memorable moments in Challenge Cup history through newspaper clippings in this personalised Rugby League book. With coverage beginning in 1929, when the final was played at Wembley for the very first time, this exquisite piece of Challenge Cup memorabilia takes you on a stroll down memory lane, revisiting all the key moments from nearly a hundred cup finals along the way, right up until the present day.

The first ever Challenge Cup final was played at Headingly on 24th April 1897, and saw Batley defeat St Helens in front of a crowd of just over 13,000, a far cry from the 1954 final replay, when well over 100,000 people packed into Odsal to watch Warrington complete a league and cup double via a win over Halifax. No club has either appeared in or won more Challenge Cup finals than Wigan Warriors, who boast a record of 19 victories from 30. Wigan are also the only team to win more than three Cups in a row, capturing a quite incredible eight on the bounce from 1988 to 1995. Leeds Rhinos hold the records for both the most points scored in a final and the largest winning margin, defeating London Broncos 52-16 in 1999, before demolishing Hull Kingston Rovers 50-0 in 2015.

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

I bought this book for my father-in-law's 80th birthday and I'm so pleased with it. I've not yet given him it but I know he will absolutely love it. The prints are so clear considering they're duplicated and the cover is so lovely. I can't wait for his birthday so we can give it to him.

Michele Talkowski-McCormack Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 24 Sep 2020

Special gift.

Love this book and the way that facts ate woven into a story with a personal touch. The presentation box makes the book look like an extra special gift. For a child Interested in the stars and planets, this book is great. A bit pricey compared to non personalised books, but worth it to have it contsin a picture and my grandson's name within the text/book. The look on his face was priceless and the added interest due to the personalisation made it a sensational gift.

Disney princess book

The princess book that I ordered was beautiful and delivered on time

Heckiew Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 23 Sep 2020

Not quite what I expected!

Content of book has lots of good interesting content although print is quite small but I was very disappointed that the book is about Glasgow Rangers and is bound in maroon (Heart of Mid Lothian colour) Also the book was personalised. This consisted of a printed sticker which wasn’t even stuck down properly. I expected a bit more for the price I paid.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As you have ordered the A4 size book, this is presented in a brown leatherette cover as standard. We do provide all information on the covers within the production page. We do apologise if this was missed.

    As the newspaper that we use is the Daily Mirror, this is an A3 tabloid size. For this paper to fit within an A4 book, the content does have to be shrunk down which does unfortunately make the text smaller than originally printed.

    We do apologise for any inconvenienced caused.

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

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Colin Shytot Yarde Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 22 Sep 2020

Should be an Interesting Read

The item was exactly what I thought it would be, the downside was that that newspaper has a strong unpleasant odour, I appreciate that it’s 60 years old but it still smells!
