Scottish Championship 1903

compiled by Alan McGowan

The Congress at Edinburgh was brought to a close on Saturday, 25the July. The championship of Scotland and the first prize in the Major Tournament have been won this year by Mr. Borthwick, of Glasgow, and the first prize in the Minor Tournament by Mr. Macdonald of Paisley. We congratulate these gentlemen on their success. Both are well known in the West of Scotland as enthusiastic and good match players. We append details of the competition, and regret that the interest taken therein was so small, as evidenced by the few entries. The experiment of holding the meeting during the height of summer has been a failure, and the Championship contest has been the chief sufferer, only one resident Scottish player having taken part. The lack of support given by Edinburgh players, for whose convenience the arrangements were doubtless planned, has been a noticeable feature. Meantime, the Scottish Championship does not seem to appeal to Scottish players as it ought to, and if possible something should be done to prevent a repetition of this year’s Edinburgh fiasco.
