The final was played on Saturday, February 28th between two very strong Glasgow teams, the Central CC coming out the winners. At the end of normal play the score stood at 2-2 with three games for adjudication. These games were adjudicated by the English master F.D. Yates, who awarded wins in all of them to Central CC.

The round 1 match between Glasgow and Edinburgh had to be replayed after a tie in the first match.
