Sheffield Sub-Site

 

For the 1892-93 season, Halifax, Wakefield, Huddersfield and Dewsbury withdrew from the Woodhouse Cup, leaving Leeds (Chess Club), Sheffield (& District Chess Association), Bradford (Chess Club) and Hull (& District Chess Association) from the previous season, these being joined by the previous season’s Bradford Observer winners, Leeds Draughts and Chess Club, meaning the new line-up featured two Leeds clubs.

 

In an attempt to deal with the problems of teams being deterred from travelling long distances, the rule had been introduced that if the distance by rail between teams was more than 25 miles, then the venue was to be an intermediate one.  Otherwise the venue was to be that of the team drawn as the “home” team, as before.

 

As there were now less than eight entrants, the pairings were one again on an all-play-all once basis.  The initial draw was published as in the following table, though in the event, Leeds v Hull was played on 18/02/1893, as explained lower down:

The rule which precluded the team winning the Minor Trophy competition playing in it again in the following season, forcing them into the Woodhouse Cup, seems too frequently to have resulted in that team withdrawing from the Woodhouse, after the pairings had been made.  Leeds Draughts and Chess Club, Minor Trophy winners of 1891-92, were in this way forced into the Woodhouse for 1892-93.  They had a bye in round one, but withdrew from the competition before round two.

 

Then, having played their first-round match, Bradford withdrew, perhaps in part, at least, because they were faced with an away match against Hull for their next match.

 

The fourth-round Leeds v Hull match was played on the date fixed for round three in view of the hiatus in the fixture schedule created by the two withdrawals.  Had Leeds lost to Hull, then the three matches between Hull, Leeds and Sheffield would have had to be replayed, but in the event, Leeds won.
