 The Chess Player’s Magazine, 1866, page 328, carried a brief report on the Sheffield Athenaeum Chess Club’s Annual Soirée which read as follows.

SHEFFIELD ATHENAEUM CHESS CLUB

(Communicated.)

The annual soiree of this club was held on the 18th September.  There were about forty gentlemen present, including the distinguished amateur Dr. Wilson, of Clay-cross, whose attendance afforded the members much gratification.  Another tournament on the principle of that which was held in the early part of the year has been arranged.  The play commenced on the 21st September, and is to be concluded on the 18th December.  The members hope by diligent and well-studied practice to improve the playing strength of the club.
