In 1921 the first Mobbs' Memorial Match was held between the East Midlands RFU and the Barbarians at Franklin's Gardens. In 2008 the Barbarians played Bedford Blues in the Mobbs Memorial Match at Goldington Road and did so again in 2009. The final Mobbs Match to feature the Barbarians took place in April 2011 against Bedford. The fixture continues to be played with the Army Rugby Union facing Bedford and Northampton Saints in alternate years.
A band from Northampton have named themselves The Mobbs after Edgar Mobbs. Also a road in Northampton, Edgar Mobbs Way, is named after Mobbs and is situated close to Franklin's Gardens stadium.
