Australia's Benji Batten Successful in Derry 29th Dec 2018

Congratulations to Australia's Benji Batten on winning the Derry City Mid-Winter Cup, finishing one point ahead of runner-up Kenny Beggs. The pair played out a goalless draw but Beggs' defeat to Mark McCrossan in the opening match proved costly, as Batten's only other dropped points came in a draw with Simon Stewart. Overall, it was a tight contest, with only two points separating the top four players. Video: Benji v Kenny
