Northern Counties v Scotland

 

The third in a series of annual matches between the Northern Counties Chess Union and Scotland was played over 25 boards on Saturday, 30/05/1903 at Ferguson and Forrester's restaurant, 129 Princess Street, Edinburgh.  The match score to date stood at 1 win each.

 

The NCCU team arrived at 4.40 p.m., after a six-hour train journey, and play started at 5.00 p.m., continuing to 9.00 p.m., at which time all but boards 4, 6 and 23 had finished.  These three were easily adjudicated there and then, making the final score 16-9 in favour of the NCCU.

After the match the NCCU players were entertained to supper by the Scottish Chess Association.  The NCCU players were staying at the Braid Hills Hotel, Morningside, Edinburgh – most staying on until the following Tuesday.  An excursion laid on by the hosts was a trip to the Forth (rail) Bridge.
