Wellingborough’s Ryan Evans will be part of the England team to compete in the World Team Championship in Japan next month.

Evans is joined by Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park) and Ben Stow (Rushmore) as they bid to win the Eisenhower Trophy for their country for the first time.

The experienced players were the leading trio in this year’s Brabazon Trophy and will bid for victory at Karuizawa Golf Club between September 10 and 14.

Evans is currently fifth on the Order of Merit and has been an England regular since last year’s Home Internationals.

Having won two events in Australia earlier this year, the 27-year-old has finished runner-up with Chesters in the Brabazon Trophy, tied fifth in the Scottish Open Stroke Play and reached the last 32 of the English Amateur Championship.

In 2013, the Wellingborough man won the Berkshire Trophy and the Biarritz Cup and finished joint-second in the South of England Amateur Championship and the St Andrews Links Trophy and equal third in the French Open Amateur Championship.

England have not won the Eisenhower Trophy since the Home Countries fielded separate teams in 2002. Great Britain & Ireland won in 1998 and finished second in 2000.
