Final
Mechelen SK A 3½-2½ Arbeiders SK Antwerp

This was he thirteenth edition of this knock-out team tournament, which attracted some national subtop players from Antwerp and Brabant. Twelve teams were reduced to six in the first round. The three winners of the second round were joined by the losing team with the best score (Mechelen SK B) in the semi-final. [1] gives the results of the first three rounds; only for the match between CÉ Thibaut and Arbeiders SK are the detailed results missing. [2] gives the result of the final, as well as one game, but not the individual scores.

The individual round-by-round results can, as far as I have them, be found here. Below are the individual scores, but here, too, some results are missing. I think Andries played for Lier in the first round and for Anderlecht in the second. He was presumably a member of both clubs.
