Sussex Exclusive 20k Club    
     
     
In late 1992 Steve Mariner and Julian Deeprose got talking about 20k breaks. Although a regular occurrence in  
other Counties, it was still a rarity to see a 20k break in Sussex. In fact at that time, and to my knowledge, only Steve  
& Julian had made a 20k break in a match. So the two of them decided as from 1993 they would award a bright red  
20k shirt to any Sussex player who could achieve a 20k break in any match. Below are the current list of players,  
breaks and dates when they first passed that 20k break barrier.  
     
Ian Lelliott became the latest player to achieve this milestone in the 2014Oxon Open, in a great game against his team  
mate Richard Wooton who had set him a target of 19k to catch.  Ian went on to reach the Final that day and after 45 years  
of playing the game it clearly shows that you can teach old dogs new tricks!  Congratulations Ian, who will be the next?
