  • York City Double Football Trophy Winners 2012

    york city 001 499x280

    York City FC are back in the football league after an 8 year absence thanks to a sensational Blue Square Bet Premier League play-off victory at Wembley against Luton Town on Saturday. This comes only a week after they were also victorious in the final of the FA Trophy against Newport County meaning they were able to show off 2 football trophies.

    On Monday night The Minstermen took part in an open-top bus parade through York city centre which started at their ground – Bootham Crescent – and worked it’s way through York until they finally reached the Mansion House.

    Literally thousands of people were there to welcome the team, we know because we were there, and what an atmosphere.

    As if the joy wasn’t enough, the club are also celebrating the fact that they have been given approval for a new 6,000-seater stadium at Monks Cross.

    Being trophy people we are glad to see that the FA Trophy and the play-off trophy are getting some exposure, often playing second fiddle to their illustrious cousins the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies. What’s even more exciting is these 2 trophies are now going to reside in our local area for the next year.

    The Trophy and Print Shop would like to offer congratulations to Gary Mills and his team and all the staff at York City. We are very much looking forward to the new season and wish the club all the best for what’s promising to be an exciting future back where they belong.

  • Popular Football Trophy

    pinnacle football trophy 630x280

    We have been trading for many years now and football trophies have been one of the best selling categories of trophies by us which comes as no surprise considering the popularity of football in the UK.

    We recently had a good look through our records to see which of the football trophies sold well and which didn’t. We were pleased to see that the vast majority of the trophies sold well but we noticed that over the last few years the Pinnacle Football Trophy is our best seller.

    This trophy is available in 7 (yes 7) sizes ranging from 6″ tall to 18″ tall and the action figure itself set on the base is very life like. This trophy represents good value for money and you can tell just by looking that it makes a great award for any football occasion at any level. It will look good on any shelf or in any trophy cabinet.

  • Sir Alex Ferguson Retires as Manchester United Manager

    alex ferguson 630x280

    It has been announced today by Manchester United that their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson will retire at the end of the season and take up a role as a Director and Ambassador for the club. Whilst being manager at Old Trafford for the last 26 years, Sir Alex lead the club to a massive 38 football trophiesand will go down in history as the clubs greatest manager and probably the greatest manager the game has ever known.

    His impressive haul of football trophies includes 13 Premier League titles, 2 Champions League, 5 FA Cups and 4 League Cups and just 2 weeks ago the last of the Premier League titles was claimed with games to spare. In this time he has managed some of the greatest players of the last 20 years including Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Christiano Ronaldo, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Rio Ferdinand to name but a few.

    Not only has he brought great success on the field, he has also created great stability for the club as a whole and has cemented United’s placed as one of the biggest clubs in the world with a huge global fan-base.

    Of all the success he has brought to the club, probably his greatest achievement was leading United to their historic treble in 1999 when they won the Premier League, FA Cup and European Champions League. It is unlikely that an English team will ever match that achievement.

    There is talk already of who will succeed Sir Alex and the 3 main front-runners are Jose Mourinho, David Moyes and Jurgen Klopp. Whoever takes on the job will be in no doubt that they are filling massive shoes and the expectations will be very high.

    Happy retirement Sir Alex.

  • Best Football Weekend 2013

    english football trophies 630x280

    May 12th and May13th 2013 will go down in history as one of the best football weekends of the 2012/2013 season for a number of reasons. Wigan Athletic beat Manchester City to win the FA Cup, Watford reached the Championship play-off final in dramatic style, Sir Alex Ferguson paid an emotional farewell to Old Trafford and Chapions League places are still up for grabs.

    An historic FA Cup Final took place between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic where Wigan beat their illustrious opponents 1-0 to put their name on the famous trophy for the first time ever. Not only did they win as underdogs but thoroughly deserved their victory, looking like the better team from start of the game and holding their nerve to score a late winner.

    To add insult to injury, City had Pablo Zabaletto sent off 6 minutes from time which no doubt gave Wigan extra belief that they could claim victory. And this they did in great style, with the 90 minutes up on the clock, substitute Ben Watson headed home a near post winner and sent the Wigan players, fans and board into ecstasy.

    Wigan had begun the match with attacking intent and carried this through to the final whistle. manager Roberto Martinez had got his tactics right and his players never let the City players settle. They chased and harassed and for the full 95 minutes showed the hunger and desire that their opponents seemed unable to muster.

    All in all, another memorable FA Cup final to match previous shock victories such as when Wimbledon beat Liverpool and Coventry beat Spurs. Now Wigan have a small matter of finding a way to beat Arsenal at the Emirates to give themselves a chance of avoiding relegation. can they come down from their high and focus enough to accomplish this feat? It won’t be easy but one thing is guaranteed, the players will give it their best shot. The do have the problem where the other teams around them had a good weekend making the Latic’s task much more onerous.

    And what of the two managers? If the papers are to be believed it looks as though both will be moving on once the final curtain has drawn. City’s Mancini will be sacked for failing to provide any silverware including a lack-lustre showing in the Champions League and Martinez will move on to greater things, probably Everton. Martinez will be sorely missed by the Wigan fans, will Mancini be missed? Well probably, but the fans at City will have hoped for more during his tenure considering the amount of money that has been spent and the talent at their disposal.


    Away from the FA Cup, there are still places to fight for in the Premier League and this again includes Wigan Athletic. As we speak they currently lie in 18th place therefore occupying the final relegation place and with 2 games left to play things aren’t looking good. This isn’t helped by their next game being away to Arsenal who have their own priorities towards the top of the league and their final game is at home against a resurgent Aston Villa. To make sure they survive, Wigan realistically have 2 win both of these games. Now here’s a scenario, if they win at Arsenal, they will be just 2 points behind Aston Villa. A win against them could send the Villa down if Sunderland get a decent result. Buoyed by their cup win, could Wigan do it? Maybe…just maybe.

    Sunderland have left themselves some work to do. Their recent 2 matches have ended as 1-1 draws at home to Stoke and Southampton which were games they would really liked to have gained more points from, particularly after their 6-1 humiliation at Aston Villa. It will take time for Di Canio to make his mark on the club but he really needs to settle the nerves of his players especially with their final match being away to Spurs. Villa also need to take care, as mentioned earlier, if Wigan win at Arsenal then they have to avoid defeat in the final game to stay up.

    Meanwhile, it’s all hotting up at the top. The third and fouth Champions League places are still up for grabs although Chelsea are looking good for third with their win at the weekend against Aston Villa. They do have a tricky final match against a strong Everton side and they have the small matter of Benfica to deal with before that.

    Fourth place is going to be hotly contested between those two old North London rivals, Arsenal and Spurs. Spurs are currently ahead but Arsenal have a game in hand and if they beat Wigan on Tuesday then they leapfrog Spurs knowing that any kind of win at Newcastle on Sunday will put them into the Champions League once more. That would be very hard for the Spurs fans to take as a similar end to last season saw them pipped to the post by the Gunners.

    As if all this wasn’t exciting enough, a remarkable game took place just north of London which saw Watford beat Leicester to go through to the Championship play-off final at Wembley. Leicester were awarded a debatable penalty in injury time but the Watford goalkeeper saved it and immediately launched a counter attack where Troy Deeney netted to claim victory for Watford with a 3-2 aggregate score over the two legs. Heartbreak for Leicester and ecstasy for Watford where their manager, Gianfranco Zola admits he ‘lost it’ during his on pitch celebrations. Save it mate, you’ve still got a game to go.
