Cormac Sharvin and Chris Selfridge hopes are dashed

By William Cherry

Northern Ireland will have no representation in today's quarter-finals at the Amateur Championship after both Cormac Sharvin and Chris Selfridge lost in yesterday's matchplay.

Ardglass' Sharvin made it through to Round 4 at Royal Portrush – comfortably overcoming the Dane Victor Fasmer Henum 5&4 – but failed to make the last eight after a 4&3 defeat to England's Paul Howard.

Selfridge – of Moyola Park in County Londonderry – fell in Round 3 to Toby Tree, who secured a 3&2 victory.

Leading qualifier Daniel Brown continues to look in imperious form after he overcame both Thomas Le Berre and two-time Walker Cup player Rhys Pugh yesterday and the 19-year-old Yorkshireman will now face his compatriot Sean Towndrow in the quarter-finals.

Both the last eight and the semi-finals will be played today with the competition then decided by a 36-hole final tomorrow.
