The Division B winner was Mark Wright 82, nett 67, from Stuart Macleod 79, nett 68, while John Harrison 87, nett 67, took the Division C honours from Paul Gabbitas 84, nett 68.

Keating also took the prize for the best gross score and Harrison’s welcome return to form was further rewarded with the Rabbits Chalice trophy.
