The 1972 Richardson Cup final paired Glasgow CC and Glasgow University for the fifth time in 7 years. The previous score was 2-2 on matches, 14-14 on games.
On this occasion Glasgow found an unexpected (team) resource even before the match started, and with Levy and McAlpine missing from the other team they seemed to have the edge. University drew the first blood, however, when Dick collapsed in 18 moves. Bonner equalised, energetically refuting passive play. On boards 5 and 7, the pawns which were shed in time-trouble cancelled out exactly. Jamieson decisively exploited Fairhurst's loose king in a heavy piece ending. The remaining two games were crucial, and both Glasgow players built up overwhelming positions. In a time scramble, however, Denman lost control, then a pawn; and Freeman left his breakthrough too late to impress the adjudicator. So in the end University's win was clear-cut.
