This formed the first match in connection with the newly instituted Derwent Chess Club.  The competition, which was a keen one, was witnessed by a large number of members.  The drawn game between Mr. R. Peguero and Mr. James Sadler, the respective captains of the teams, was a hard battle.

 

W. Bird and R. Bennison were presumably the players of those names who normally played for Grosmont in matches against Whitby, but were perhaps also members of Whitby Chess Club.
