BRIAN Cox has claimed the Boston Snooker League’s best break record... which stood for more than two decades.

The former professional made a break of 137 as he played against Lee Ford last Wednesday.

The previous best break - one point behind on 136 - was made by Nigel Salmon in the 1989-90 season.

“It’s a good feeling to get the record,” said former professional Cox.

“I’ve done a 147 break in practice at home before, but that doesn’t count.

“This is my best-ever break in the Super League.”

Cox has previously hit a 145 in competitive action, but not in the Boston league.

It has been a good few months for Cox who recently received an England call-up.

He competed for his country in a Grand Slam event against Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Cox helped England reach the final in Prestatyn. where they lost to hosts Wales.
