Oliver Searle became the first junior to win the Searles Summer Matchplay trophy for 10 years.

After a summer of tight matches in the knockout tournament, it came down to a match between Searle and Mark Warters, both of whom had been playing good consistent golf over the season to reach the final.

A close-fought match saw Searle taking an early lead, going 4-up after four holes. Warters brought him back to only 2-up at the turn and levelled by hole 14. Searle pushed ahead, securing the win after the 17th with a 2 & 1 victory.
