Scottish Championship 1906

compiled by Alan McGowan

The twenty-third annual Congress opened at Glasgow CC on 13th April. The contest for the Scottish Championship was a keen one, the entry being individually stronger, perhaps, than usual. Dr. Macdonald, present champion, tied with Mr. A.J. Mackenzie, of Birmingham, for first honours, and a small match was arranged between these players, but had to be abandoned, after each had scored one win, owing to Mr. Mackenzie being suddenly called back to Birmingham. Dr. Macdonald therefore retained the championship, and having won the cup in three successive years it now became his own property. The “Spens Memorial” Gold Medal, and a prize of £7 7s., also went with the championship. Mr. Mackenzie took second prize of £4 4s., and Mr. J.A. McKee, Glasgow, third prize of £2 2s.
