Ryan Evans (Wellingborough, Northamptonshire) put the disappointment of not qualifying for the Amateur Championship behind him by winning the Berkshire Trophy at The Berkshire.

A closing round of 69 over the Red Course for 279 left him a stroke ahead of Vaughan McCall from New Zealand and two clear of Ryan Fricker (Yelverton, Devon).

Evans, a member of the England ‘A' squad, won the South of England Amateur Championship at Walton Heath last year and has been in good form this season, finishing tied second in the St Andrews Links Trophy and joint third in the French Open Amateur Championship.

So a win was on the horizon when he arrived at The Berkshire and an opening 68 over the Red left the 26 year old a shot behind McCall.

He was still a shot behind McCall at halfway after both fired 72 over the Blue Course but the Kiwi was joined at the top of the leaderboard by Robbie Busher (Salisbury & South Wilts, Wiltshire), who signed for a best-of-the-day 67 after an opening 72.

At that stage Evans was sharing third spot with 2012 British Boys champion Matthew Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire, Yorkshire), who shot 68, but a 70 back on the Red in Round Three saw Evans one ahead as McCall who returned another 72, while Fitzpatrick and Busher fell back with 74 and 78 respectively.

The final round was again over the Red with Fricker who returned the best card with 68 for third place, while Evans and McCall both shot 69, leaving the Englishman one clear and the champion.

Leading final scores:
279 R Evans (Wellingborough) 68 72 70 69
280 V McCall (New Zealand) 67 72 72 69
281 R Fricker (Yelverton) 73 69 71 68
283 D Timms (Mid Kent) 68 74 70 71
286 T Lawton (Wilmslow) 70 75 68 73, J Shufflebotham (Prestatyn) 69 75 73 69, J Kemp (Woburn) 74 68 72 72
