SOUTHEND snooker star Matt Glasby is heading to Newbury for his next challenge tour event this weekend.

Glasby lost in the second round in Germany during the first event of the tour.

And Glasby, who has been boosted by a new sponsorship deal with Hamilton Acoustic Solutions, is keen to progress further this time around.

“This is the second tour event out of 10 and hopefully I can put in a good performance,” said Glasby.

“I lost in the second round last time so it would be good to get further this time.

“I’m also really thankful to my sponsors and would like to thank them for the support they are giving me.”
