Sheffield Sub-Site

 

Played on 28/01/1882,

at Leeds Chess Club,

over 6 boards.

 

The Doncaster team was, of course, no match for a full-strength Leeds, and in this match the Leeds players were drawn from the “C and E divisions” of Leeds Chess Club, which presumably meant the somewhat weaker of the Leeds club’s players.

 

The Chess Player’s Chronicle of 08/02/1882, p. 69, gave the results of this match as follows:

 

 

Leeds

6‑4

Doncaster

1

Bisbey
