You are my sunshine! Relive the history of Wigan Athletic through newspaper clippings in this personalised Wigan football book. With coverage beginning in 1934, just two years after their founding, this magnificent piece of Wigan memorabilia takes you through decades of history, revisiting all the key moments from Springfield Park, the DW Stadium and beyond, right up until the present day.

In comparison to most teams, Wigan Athletic are a relatively new Football League club, only joining for the first time prior to the 1978/79 season. In that respect, the club’s rise has been both impressive and unexpected. In 1994, the Latics finished fourth-bottom of the fourth tier. But only a decade later, they were winning promotion to the Premier League, thanks in no small part to the ownership of JJB millionaire Dave Whelan and the management of Paul Jewell. After eight years in England’s top division, Wigan’s biggest day in the sun would come at Wembley in 2013. Up against Manchester City, the previous season’s league champions, nobody gave Wigan much hope of lifting the F.A. Cup. But thanks to an injury-time header from Ben Watson, Wigan pulled off the unthinkable in one of the greatest upsets in cup final history.

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

Unacceptable delivery length especially for paid delivery

I purchased 2 baby books on 05/07/2021 and paid £4.99 for the delivery. The delivery suppose to arrive between 7 and 9 of July, 2021. I bought these books for my pregnant wife birthday on the 13/07/2021. I received the item on 22/07/2021 which already way passed my wife birthday. My worst online shopping experience ever!
