Represented by brothers Cameron and Samuel Mukherjee along with Ryan Gallagher and Callum Keneally, Lothians posted a 150 total in the morning to sit second behind North.

Led by a four-under 68 from Cameron Mukherjee, they then added a 213 total - the best three scores counted - but it wasn’t to be on this occasion.

With Koby Buchan, Callum Bruce, Scott Spark and Fraser Laird in the team, North East finished four shots ahead on 364.

Buchan (70), Spark (71) and Bruce (72) delivered the scores that ultimately proved decisive.

The win at a wet Gleddoch came a fortnight after North East had also landed the men’s title at Powfoot.

Fife’s Alex North pipped Cameron Mukherjee on a countback to win the trophy for the leading individual player.
