Played at Rawdon,

on Saturday 07/01/1882,

over 8 boards, 2 games per board.

 

At the close of play in this match between Rawdon Church Institute Chess Club and Ilkley Liberal Chess Club, to give the clubs their full names, there remained four games unfinished, which were adjudicated there and then.

 

The way the results were recorded in the Chess Player’s Chronicle, 1882, p.45, failed to distinguish between a win a–piece, and two draws.
