Lee McClelland (6) finished fourth also on 40 points. Billy Hutchman (12) from Faughan Valley was the best visitor on 38 points.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Heywood and Robinson two nines prizes were on offer and these were won by Bert Whoriskey (17) on the front nine with 22 points and a huge 25 points on the back nine was good enough and absolutely no coincidence that the winner was Trevor Heywood (17).
