Aidan McHugh has a chance to impress in his hometown after being given a wild card into the line-up for the inaugural Murray Trophy - Glasgow at the Scotstoun Leisure Centre in September.

The 19-year-old joins fellow Brits Jay Clarke, Jack Draper, Lloyd Glasspool and Evan Hoyt on the entry list for the ATP Challenger event, which gets underway on Monday 16 September.

McHugh, who is supported by the LTA’s Pro Scholarship programme, has been in good form on the ITF circuit over the summer, winning a $15k title in Singapore and reaching the final of two others in June.

We have been working closely with Jamie Murray over several months in developing the event. The combination of Murray’s experience on the pro circuit and our expertise in delivering world class events will ensure the tournament excels in meeting the needs of both the players on court and the fans in the stands.

Last year’s ATP Challenger (known as the Glasgow Trophy) was won by Slovakia’s Lukas Lacko, who fought back from a set down to beat Italian Luca Vanni 4-6 7-6(3) 6-4.

Jay Clarke is one of nine players on the entry list ranked within the world top 200 including Austria’s Dennis Novak, Frenchman Gregoire Barrere and Tunisian Malek Jaziri.

17-year-old Jack Draper goes into the tournament in fine form, having won two ITF $25k tournaments within a fortnight over the summer in Chiswick and Roehampton.

The LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme is the highest level of support that we offer and currently there are 12 players on this scheme, including McHugh, Draper and Clarke. In total, we support around 1,300 players on the player pathway at a local, regional and elite level.
