Abridged version of a long poem about the Montagu Cup final 1904. Full poem at the bottom of the page.

Quite a scrap as a result of an incident in the Montagu Cup final, when the teams met again shortly afterwards (articles from 12th & 15th April 1904)....

Sheffield Daily Telegraph Fri 15th April 1904

Lengthy match report with strange prefixes added to player names - such as Mc or O' as though they are Scottish or Irish

Not in the final...but probably entered the Montagu Cup....
