Kettering snooker star Kyren Wilson has been knocked out of the UK Championship in the first round.

The 21-year-old took the first three frames - including breaks of 119 and 69 - against Anthony McGill before the man from Glasgow hit back with five on the bounce.

Wilson was not about to lie down, though, and hit back to make it 5-5 in the best of 11 encounter at the York Barbican.

However, McGill edged the last 80-66 to end Wilson’s valiant battle.
