Date Updated Notes
09 Oct 2017 Original upload. Comprises games collated by JS and published as a download to accompany an article written for the August 2017 issue of CHESS Magazine, supplemented with 20+ games kindly submitted by Brian Denman.
10 Oct 2017 Added one game: Shoosmith ½-½ Greenwell, City of London v Metropolitan match, 11 Nov 1905. Contributed by Gerard Killoran, for which many thanks.
07 Dec 2018 Added one game: Shoosmith 1-0 A.Howell, Brixton v Ludgate Circus, 1907. Contributed by Alan Smith, 28 Nov 2018, for which many thanks. (but see the note below at 28 Feb 2019 - this is a duplicate game and has been removed)
18 Feb 2019 Added one game: Shoosmith 1-0 B. Kagan, Ostende Amateur 1907. Kindly contributed by Gerard Killoran. I have also added some minor details to the other games Shoosmith played in this event, namely opponent's first names or initials, round numbers and dates (culled from issues of the The Field, March/April 1907).
28 Feb 2019 (1) Deleted one game - Shoosmith - A. Howell, 1907, which turns out to be a duplicate of Shoosmith - A.Howell actually played in 1897 and already on the database. Many thanks to Brian Denman for drawing my attention to this. (2) Added six further Shoosmith games: Gunston-HWS, Test game for Cable Match 1905; Anspach-HWS, London League 1905; Middleton-HWS, Ostend Amateur 1906; and HWS-Healey, Morgan-HWS, HWS-MacDonald, all three from the City of London CC ch 1907. (3) Correction to the game HWS-MacDonald, Ostend 1906 - Black was Edmund (not Dr RC) Macdonald. (4) Further data and caveat as regards the game Crowley-HWS, 1894. This is full explained as part of the game score. Many thanks to Brian Denman.
