Youngsters beat adults, to win trophy

British Pair Go Championship (Handicap section)

Congratulations to youngsters Rebecca Margetts and Oscar Selby, who finished top of the handicap section at this year's British Pair Go Championship, above 14 players (nearly all adults). This meant that they got their hands on the trophies (pairs go-bowls), which just eluded them when they lost in the final in 2012. There's clearly proof in the old adage "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.". Well done, Rebecca and Oscar, especially as their combined average grade of 22.5 kyu was 7 whole grades stronger than the year before. Could anybody beat them in 2014?
