Mike Burns was a late Scottish entry and he finished 4th. The competition was won by former England great Justin Finch. Famously, when he was younger, Justin insured his finger for £50,000! Have a look at this YouTube video of Justin……25,296 views…….not bad but well sort of the 34,321 views of one of our GTSA videos!
