The North versus South team match (on 106 boards) played at Birmingham on January 28, 1893, won by the South by the smallest of margins, 53.5 - 52.5.

This was the first board game between the respective team captains - the Reverends William Wayte and John Owen.

The final game position 32...Qd2+ is better for Black. The tournament link says William Wayte won this round 1 encounter.
