In the 1903-04 season two correspondence games were played between the chess clubs of Colchester and Tunbridge Wells. The first match can be found here. According to a newspaper article about the match "In game two White (Colchester) lost a pawn in the opening, but by using the knights to best advantage regained the pawn on move 20, and capturing two pawns shortly afterwards secured a winning advantage, black resigning on the 35th move. The Tunbridge Wells Chess Club is a strong one, having won the county trophy in Kent two years in succession. They also drew against Hastings, a notably strong club."
