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.

I bought this book for my husband as a christmas gift as he is a big fan of Wigan Athletic football club, although a tad on the pricey side, this is an excellent unique gift for any fan, it has great articles from the clubs history and you can personalize the front which makes it even more personal for the recipient. Overall I would definately recommend this gift for anyone who loves football.

As the book was for a 3 year old I was a bit worried the book would be too advanced for him as it was aimed at a 4 year old. However, my grandson loved everything about the book and educationally has managed to learn all of the names of the dinasaurs which were quite complex! The design, the colours used and the language all fired up his imagination. Thank you, I will certainly recommend this to friends.
