Scottish Championship 1928

compiled by Alan McGowan

The Scottish Championship Tournament was a great success and added further laurels to the career of Dr. R.C. Macdonald, who played finely throughout and won the title with the loss of only one game. J.A. McKee was only ½ a point behind and during the contest he beat the Champion. However he lost to J. Gilchrist who came out third and only drew with E.G. Beckingham, a young player from Dundee , who gives promise of developing into a very strong player. G. Page, who might easily have been first if in form, came out last. No one, however, regards this as anything but a temporary lapse. The lady competitors were unfortunate, both had to retire, one before playing and the other after appearing twice.
