Castle's Alex Gleeson can make up for last weekend's Irish Close final disappointment when he takes a share of the lead into Friday's final day in the Irish Youths Championship at Moyola Park.

Played in conjunction with the Irish Colleges Invitational, the UCD player added a 69 to his opening 71 to share top spot in the Youths competition on two under with Cairndhu's Ryan Long (70 70) and Holywood's Rory Williamson (68 72), two clear of Galway's Ronan Mullarney (69 73).

Gleeson also shares top spot in the Irish Colleges invitational with Ardee's Eugene Smith, who carded a two over 73 on Thursday.

In the Irish Colleges Invitational, UCD lead by two lead from Maynooth B on 287 with Ulster University A, Maynooth A and Ulster University C three off the pace on 290.
