Miscellaneous

 

On the main Yorkshire Chess History website’s “Events” section are details of Woodhouse Cup results (1884-85 onwards) which are being slowly built up as limited time permits, as are details of Yorkshire inter-county matches (1871 onwards).  Life is too short to give the I. M. Brown Shield etc any detailed attention.
