Junior Handicapped Tournament - 2014.

Final - Paul Goldie v Martin Goldie

The annual Hawick junior handicapped tournament was played on Tuesday, 1 April, 2014 at Hawick High School main games hall. Two pools of players played round robin games against each other with each game played over one end to 15 points. The results from the pool games were then used to place the players in the quarter-final knockout stage of the tournament. The first seed Paul Goldie (0) beat Jessica Hutchison (+2) in the first semi-final 15-9. Martin Goldie (+5) beat Christy Anderson (+3) in the second semi-final 15-14.

The final was played over a single game to 15 points and was between Paul Goldie and his younger brother Martin. Martin played out of his skin in a determined effort to beat his older brother. Martin began the final strongly and he was first to reach double figures. Unfortunately, Martin found that he was unable to maintain the same level of play throughout the final and Paul starter to claw back the deficit. Martin had played a very tiring semi-final against Christy and this was the telling factor towards the end of the final as Paul managed to win the last few vital points to win the final 15-13. Both players are to be congratulated for the high standard of play and for making the final such a memorable, exciting game.

The trophies for the handicapped tournament were presented by Nancy Morrison. The trophy that is given to the Young Player of the Year, for their dedication and commitment towards the sport and who has continued to improve steadily throughout the season, was presented this year to Amber Malcolm.
