Bridlington's Belt, who is currently leading the two order of merits in the north of England and Wales and the Yorkshire PGA, carded rounds of 68 and 70 to finish on four-under-par, a shot behind Archer.

Belt, who snapped up a cheque for £1,500 for his second place, said: "I was just one shot shy yesterday of winning my third North Region Championship to Phil Archer, who is an ex-European Tour winner."
