Semi- Final

Wombwell Main 1 Dog Daisy United 3

Dog Daisy reached the final of the Montagu Cup for the first time with a victory over 7-time winners Wombwell Main in front of almost 300 spectators at Tickhill  Square.

A brace from Dog Daisy's Josh Moore gave the Mexborough Sunday League side a deserved half-time lead.  Both of Moore's goals came directly from Rhys Plater's deliveries.

Two penalty appeals early in the second half were pivotal.


Daisy's Matthew McCall appeared to handle the ball whilst prone after blocking a chance from Ryan Wingrove - no penalty for the County Senior side. 

At the other end, Dog Daisy's Jake Ford netted the penalty awarded after Owen Fieldsend was adjudged to have been fouled in an aerial challenge.

Main came to life in the last 20 minutes with Owen Sykes' shots and corners testing Doggy's Declan Ogley.  Jordan Kershaw clipped the post with a shot on the swivel.

​On 76 minutes, Wombwell's Wingrove's controlled a long ball and finished with a low shot.

The final is scheduled to be played at Hampden Road, Mexborough on the traditional date of Easter Monday 18th April 2022.

Semi- Final

Scawthorpe Athletic 3 Swinton WMC 0

Scawthorpe have reached the final in their maiden Montagu Cup in a competitive match at Denaby Main's Tickhill Square.

Will McGhie's two first-time strikes from distance were all that separated the teams until Ben Clark sealed the victory with the last kick of the match.

The opening goal came on 12 minutes when Sam Corner laid the ball back for McGhie to rifle a rising shot past Hinchcliffe.

On the half-hour Swinton missed their best chance when the ball fell to Brett Lovell after tricky play on the wing from Zak Khalifa.  WMC again came close just before half-time when a Brady Roberts free-kick went narrowly wide with the keeper static.

As Swinton tried to get back in the match it was Scawthorpe's Ben Clark who caused problems with two penalty appeals, as well as a squandered chance after an aerial mix up in the Swinton defence.  Clark set up McGhie for his second goal - a dipping shot just under the bar on 64 minutes.

WMC's Sulieman's close range effort was saved by Porteous before Clark poked home  after fine work from the impressive Adam Watson.

The second semi-final between Dog Daisy and Wombwell Main is next Tuesday (7th September) at Tickhill Square 6pm.

The final is scheduled to be played at Hampden Road, Mexborough on the traditional date of Easter Monday 18th April 2022.
