​The reports below were written by BRIAN HILL.  He documented every match that he played for the Old Boys of Mexborough Technical College between 1955 and 1961.  This included a Montagu Cup win in 1957 and finalists in 1956.
Ken Wyatt has donated all these, after receiving them from Walt West's family.  Bob Wakefield had posted them to Walt.
