Sheffield Sub-Site

 

Played on Saturday, 25/02/1882,

Royal Hotel, Wood Street, Wakefield,

over 7 boards.

 

This was described as a “return” match, so there was presumably a Dewbury v Wakefield match in late 1881.

 

It seems a match over nine bards had been intended, and Wakefield had nine players ready to play, but only seven Dewsbury players arrived, so the match was played over only seven boards.

 

Play started at 6.30 p.m. and ended at 9.30 p.m.  The outcome, as reported by the Leeds Mercury Weekly Supplement of 11/03/1882 was as follows:

 

 

Wakefield

7½‑3½
