Over the weekend the RMTCs two main junior (U21) events were played, the Jim Bailey Handicap and the Ford Strachan.  On Saturday Richard Pagone showed his handicap smarts in defeating both James Gould and Michael Williams to win the Jim Bailey and today James Gould became the Ford Strachan Champion when he beat Michael Williams 6/4 6/2.  James’s game has matured immensely over the last 2 years and after today’s match his handicap will move below 20 for the first time.  Michael possesses a power game which is the envy of many but James was able cope and ultimately keep Michael off balance forcing most of his shots to miss their mark. Congratulations to James and Richard.
