Hamilton-Russell Cup and The Field

Many thanks to Teddy Bourne from The Reform for passing on some of their archive including a reference to the Hamilton-Russell Cup from 1926 where an internal letter to Reform Club chess members alludes to “notices may appear in The Times under the chess column and probably in The Field.”

Does anybody have any access to the reports referred to and any knowledge of why The Field in particular would be reporting on the chess matches?
