Book Launch Night

We were honoured to have Geoff Salmons join us for an evening to launch "The Mont" - a book to celebrate 125 years of the Montagu Cup.

Ed Milliband was due to attend but the rail strike meant that he was forced to change his plans - Ed sent a speech which was read out at the event.



John Hobson's photographs from the event can be viewed at
and ordered in high resolution by request via email

The 2023 finalists are already decided. Mexborough’s Dog Daisy United will face Dearne & District on April 10th (Easter Monday) at 11am at the usual Hampden Road (Mexborough Athletic) ground.

Advanced notice that another book on local football history is set to be produced in 12 months’ time. The Totty Cup primary school football competition marks its centenary in 2023 – we have all the post-war winning team photos.

We are also keen to hear from players who have played in the Totty Cup who may be interested in attending the March 2023 centenary final.

The launch night was on Thursday 15th December 2022 at the Mexborough Athletic Club
