Denaby & Cadeby managed by Gerard O’Neill and Swinton Athletic with Martin Weir in charge met in the 1991 final which was refereed by the late Steve Venables. After a goalless first half Andy Mangham gave  Swinton a 49th minute lead but this only lasted three minutes with ex-Denaby United player Gary Smith equalising for Denaby & Cadeby. With extra time looming Denaby & Cadeby grabbed a fortuitous 2-1 win from an own goal as a free kick struck Athletic’s Danny Hughes and deflected over the line. Dennis Priestley, Mexborough’s World Darts Champion, presented the Montagu Cup to Colin Squires the Denaby & Cadeby captain.
