Product Description

You'll love this because...

You can relive the history of Wigan Athletic through decades of newspaper headlines.

  • 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 1934 to the present day

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.

Very happy with the book. Bought for my granddaughter's 5th birthday. She was delighted and so surprised to see her name, her photograph and a message from granny and grampa inside. A very special keepsake.

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!!

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
