Warrenpoint international Colm Campbell shot a second successive 71 to grab a share of the lead entering Sunday’s final round of the EMC Lee Valley Senior Scratch Cup.  

The former East of Ireland winner shares top spot on two under 142 with Newcastlewest’s Andrew McCormack, the recent winner of the Mid-West Alliance series at Dromoland Castle.

Jamie Fletcher and Robin Dawson shot afternoon 70s to share third on 143 with first round leader Colin Woodroofe adding a 75 to his morning 69 to slop to fifth on level par.

The cut for the top 30 and ties fell at eight over 152 and with the top 15 covered by just six shots an exciting finish is on the cards.
