Stonyhurst Park golfer Daniel Whalley has secured his place in the Nike Matchplay Championship Finals.

The knockout stages have taken place throughout the year, culminating in a regional final at Sandiway in Cheshire.

The 16 competitors played a full handicap stableford competition, with the top two going through to Grand Final.

Daniel plays off 15 and scored 36 points, which was enough to top the pile on a card play-off, and he will now travel to Portugal in January.
