Book Launch Night

Thursday 15th December at the Mexborough Athletic Club at 7.30pm (bar opens at 6.00pm)

New Oxford Road, Mexborough S64 0JL

We are hoping that a few local sporting names will be present, along with the author Steve Penny. There will be brief speeches and an opportunity to have your photograph taken with the Montagu Cup.

Those local lads that made it in football at an elite level will be approached to see if they will join us.

This will be more of a gathering of local football people, rather than a sales event (although we are expecting to have some books available).  Those who have pre-ordered to collect at Pettits can collect their order on the night, if they wish.

Ring your old football mate & arrange to have few beers with them.  It won't clash with the World Cup matches - it's the night after the 2nd semi-final.

This is not a ticketed event.  Anyone is welcome, whether you have played in the Montagu Cup or not.


The book launch is expected to be a similar event to the "Meet at the Mont" event in April 2022

So far, we have over 200 pre-orders. We are printing 400 copies of an A4 book that is expected to have 136 pages. If you know of anyone else who is interested in pre-ordering, this is still possible for £10, however the deadline has passed to have their name included. Once the book is printed, the cover price will be £15.

Pre-order at Pettits for collection (£10) or delivered (£10 + £3).

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. If you want to register an interest in the Totty Cup book (or can add some information) please contact via email at or text/phone 07985902346

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.
