Kettering snooker star Kyren Wilson will be heading back to China later this month.

The 23-year-old returned to action for the first time since his stunning victory on the Shanghai Masters, which boosted his world ranking to 22 after he beat Judd Trump 10-9 in a dramatic final.

Wilson was competing in the qualifying round of the International Championship at the Barnsley Metrodome yesterday (Wednesday).

And he continued his impressive form by making light work of Thor Chuan Leong with a crushing 6-1 victory.

Wilson raced into a 5-0 lead before Leong pulled a frame back.

But the Kettering player rounded off an impressive display with a break of 92 in what proved to be the final frame.

The success means Wilson will now be heading to Daqing for the final stages of the £657,000 world ranking event.

The tournament, which will see players competing for the £125,000 first prize, begins on October 25 with the final being on November 1.
