Australia's Jo Charlton has reached the matchplay stage of the British Women's Amateur Championship in Northern Ireland, after she qualified as the 16th seed overnight.

Charlton, a member of Metropolitan Golf Club and captain of Victoria's winning team at the Interstate Series recently, began the second round of strokeplay in the top five, but carded a 75 to slide to 16th.

The top 64 progressed to tomorrow's matchplay section, headed by the world's No. 1 amateur, Leona Maguire, who has dominated the event, winning the strokeplay section by six shots.

Charlton's plays Ireland's Lisa Maguire, the 49th seed, tomorrow.

Five other Australians were eliminated.
