Ryan Evans hopes of winning the English Amateur Golf Championship were ended as he bowed out in the third round.

The Wellingborough man had been the top seed after the stroke play section of the competition and eased through his first round tie in the matchplay.

This morning he needed an extra hole to see off Tom Gandy but he was edged out 2&1 in the afternoon by his third-round opponent Sean Blinkhorn from the Southport & Ainsdale club.
