Wellingborough’s Ryan Evans is through to the second round of the English Amateur Championship.

Having been the leader on five-under after the strokeplay part of the competition, Evans was seeded first when the format switched to matchplay.

And he produced a dominant display to overcome Exeter’s Harrison Greenberry 4&3 in the first match out today.

He now moves on to face Rowany Golf Club member Tom Gandy as they battle for a place in the last eight.

The pair tee off at 7.30am tomorrow (Thursday).
