This return match was played at Whitby on Wednesday 25th April 1894, over 12 boards, 2 games being played, time permitting, at each board.  The Yorkshire Herald and York Herald, Thursday 26th April 1894, reported on the game as follows:

 

CHESS

SCARBOROUGH v. WHITBY

The return match between the representatives of the above two clubs took place at the Albermarle Hotel, Scarborough, yesterday afternoon.  Whitby were weakly represented, only bringing eight players, whilst Scarborough were without the services of E. J. Huntsman (president of the club) and also their captain (Mr. E. Wallace [sic]).  Mr. Morton captained the Scarborough team.  Scores:

Mr. McNaughton

The previous match had been over twelve boards.

 

“W. Peguero” clearly means R. Peguero, unless 8-year-old son William was standing in for his father.

 

“Mr. E. Wallace” looks intended to mean Mr. E. Wallis.

 

“Dr. Berkeley” of Scarborough seems not to have existed, and looks like a reference to Dr. William Henry Beverley (born 1855, Leeds) who was a surgeon practicing in Scarborough at this time, residing at 13 Albion Road, Scarborough.

 

“G. W. Nicholson” would appear to mean “J. W. Nicholson”.

 

The players thus appear to have been as follows:
