Meon Valley teenage ace Harry Ellis has stormed into the final of the English Amateur Championship.

The Hampshire star beat Wiltshire's Jordan Smith on the first extra hole at Silloth-on-Solway, after their semi-final had finished all square.

Ellis, 16, had earlier claimed a two-hole victory against England international Seb Crookall-Nixon in a last-eight encounter.

He will contest the prestigious title tomorrow against Henry Tomlinson, of Royal Lytham & St Annes, who also needed sudden death to win his semi-final.

Tomlinson had also beaten Corhampton's Neil Raymond in the quarter-finals this morning.
