Second overall and best gross went to James Lindsay (1) with a remarkably compiled 40 points that included no less than six birdies, one eagle and a quadruple bogey. His 31 gross on the back nine started with four consecutive birdies.

Third place, losing out on a tie break went to Lester Moore (1) who also had 40 points despite him blanking the 17th. Fourth nett was taken by Aaron King (6) who was best of a trio on 39 points after the countback.

Paul McGuigan (2) from Foyle was the best visitor with 38 points.
