Played at Ilkley,

on Saturday 11/03/1882,

over 11 boards,

2 games per board (time permitting).

 

This was the return match between Ilkley Liberal Chess Club and Rawdon Church Institute Chess Club.  For this match the teams played over 11 boards rather than the 8 of the previous match, but otherwise the pools of players were much the same as before.  Ilkley reasserted its superiority, winning by a similar margin as before.

 

The way the results were recorded in the Chess Player’s Chronicle, 1882, p.108, failed to distinguish between a win a–piece, and two draws.
