Sheffield Sub-Site

 

 

Played at the Clarence Hotel, High Street, Sheffield,

on Saturday, 09/12/1893,

over 11 boards, 2 games per board (time permitting).

 

In a similar match in 1892, Derbyshire had been the victors.  It’s a little surprising that the math was played over so few boards, given that both sides could, surely, raise a much larger number of players.

 

Results as reported in the Sheffield & Rotherham Independent of Monday 11/12/1893 were as follows:

Derbyshire’s board 8 was very probably Edward Dale, civil engineer, who moved to Rotherham around 1902, but was resident in Staveley, Derbyshire, in 1891.
