Semi-final 2Tuesday 5th September
Park View 2  Joker Wickersley Youth CC 0
Luke Walker, Callum Walton

A goal after just 12 seconds paved the way Swinton's Park View to advance to the final of the Montagu Cup against Joker Wickersley Youth at Denaby.  
Many of the 230 strong crowd had yet to arrive when Luke Walker drilled in a low shot.  Within a minute the lead was almost doubled when Calum Walton fired over from 15 yards. Walton made no mistake on 23 minutes after Walker had teed it up for him.

The rest of the match was a scrappy affair with Joker's Matt Langley rallying his team without threatening Ben Priestley's goal.

Jack Harrison controlled the midfield for Park View with Brett Lovell acting as a target man. The Swinton-based team revived as Swinton Workings Mens Club in 2021 and both of their previous Mont campaigns ended at the hands of Scawthorpe Athletic. In the 2024 final they will face Brinsworth DC.

The Montagu Cup final will be played, as always, on Easter Monday (April 1st)at 11am at the Fireparts Ground, Hampden Road, Mexborough. The venue where the Montagu Cup final has been played since 1897.

Semi-final 1- Tuesday 29th August
Brinsworth DC 1-0  AFP Pewter Pot

Jack Kitchen

There was very little to separate these two Rotherham Sunday League sides in the Montagu Cup semi-final watched by around 200 at Denaby. The only goal came early in the second half, which was enough to send Brinsworth DC to the Montagu Cup final for the first time.

Early on, Brinsworth's Lee Hill appealed for a penalty when his goal-bound shot was blocked.  As the half progressed AFP Pewter Pot had the edge, with Mitch Dunne creating most of their chances.

On 52 minutes the deadlock was broken when a lofted free-kick from Jack Kitchen evaded everyone and bounced in, with visibility reduced due to the low sun.

"I meant it!", claimed Jack.

Four-time Mont-winners, AFP dominated the rest of the match but most of their crosses were dealt with by the excellent defensive pair - Sam Green and Mat Crookes.  Although AFPs Sheldon Jordan did see a glancing header hit the bar on 72 minutes.

AFP's shots were blocked, deflected, or dealt with by the impressive stopper Ross Pritchard.

Brinsworth DC await the winner of the other semi-final between Swinton's Park View and Joker Wickersley Youth CC, which will also be played at the Bespoke Resin Stadium, Tickhill Square, Denaby at 6.00pm on Tuesday 5th September.

The Montagu Cup final will be played, as always, on Easter Monday (April 1st)at 11am at the Fireparts Ground, Hampden Road, Mexborough. The venue where the Montagu Cup final has been played since 1897.
