The Montagu Cup was first competed for in the 1896-97 season with the final taking place in Mexborough.
To this day, the Montagu Cup final, is still held in Mexborough. Traditionally this match is played on Easter Monday at 11am, at the Hampden Road ground.
It is thought to be the oldest football competition still played at the same ground.
We want to invite as many Montagu Cup finalists from yesteryear to attend as special guests for the final on Easter Monday* 2022 (April 18th at 11.00am) at Mexborough Athletic ground on Hampden Road.
This will be the 125th anniversary of the Montagu Cup final. The first final in 1897 was also played on Easter Monday at Hampden Road. A publication is expected to mark this occasion.
It is hoped that we will have a group photograph for the past finalists ahead of kick-off.
Players who have passed away - we would like to invite one relative to represent them.
Please contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter or Facebook before December 31st 2021.
