Southampton snooker prodigy Shane Castle, 15, talks to BBC South Today before his first-round UK Championship clash against defending champion Mark Selby on Saturday.

Castle is one of seven amateurs lining up against the professionals in the first round, after the format of the tournament was changed so that all 128 players enter at the first-round stage.

"I'll try to treat it like a normal amateur match, but I'm looking forward to it," said Castle.
