OLLY Huggins’ run at the English Amateur Championships was brought to an end in the last 16.

The Frilford Heath member had successfully come through two rounds of strokeplay and two knockout matchplay contests.

But he lost 3&1 to Jack Cope, who went on to win the title at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire.

Huggins lost the third and seventh holes to reach the turn two down.

The deficit was halved at the tenth, but Cope hit back to take the 12th and 13th.

Huggins won on 14 and 16, but lost the 15th to be two down with two to play.

And Cope clinched the 17th to continue his march towards the title.
