Joe Beresford grew up in Bentley and worked as a pit-pony stable-lad at the pit in the early 1920s

 

Beresford was discovered one good Friday morning by Mexborough playing for Askern Road in a Montagu Cup Final. Subsequently spent two years with Mexborough being extremely popular at Hampden Road, before going to Mansfield and thence to Aston Villa.

 

Beresford scored over 100 goals in two seasons with Mexborough in the Midland League and cup tie.
