First Round

 

1) Yorkshire v Durham & Northumberland

 

In this match played over 20 boards at the Gambit Café, Leeds, on 24/01/1931, Yorkshire met a combined Durham-cum-Northumberland team which was represented by 10 players from each constituent county.  At close of play the score stood at 7½-7½, with 5 games for adjudication.  Details of the adjudication results are not to hand, but the final result was a win to the combined NE Counties, reportedly by 7 games to 5, meaning presumably 11-9 including draws.
