Hopes of an English win in the Girls Amateur Mathplay Championship at Fairhaven Golf Club have been dashed.

The two remaining players in the competition missed out at the last 16 stage.

Alice Hewson was beaten 4 and 3 by Liti Roberts, of Italy.

Hewson’s compatriot Emma Allen was beaten by Puk Lyng Thomsen, a member of the team championship winning Denmark side.

Chinese player Jing Yan won her match to enter the last eight.
