Sheffield Sub-Site

 

This was contested between the same eight teams as in the previous season, in the same two regional sections, “West” and “East”, with a play-off between section winners to determine the overall winner.

 

There were five teams still in the “West” section, each playing each other twice, home and away.

The tie for first place in the East Section necessitated a play-off, which was played at York, and was won by Hull by 7½-2½.

 

The play-off between section winners, to determine the winner of the Woodhouse Cup, took place in Leeds.  At the close of play there were three unfinished games, which were adjudicated by H. E. Atkins (Huddersfield), J. Bronowski (Hull) and A.Y. Green (Sheffield).  Huddersfield beat Hull by 5½ to 4½.

 

Detailed match results were as follows.  On the right is a list of players, in alphabetical order of surname.
