SNOOKER genius Ronnie O’Sullivan rattled in the history-making 1,000th century break of his magical career on Sunday – but did you know his previous landmark ton happened in Kidderminster?

No player in history has come close to matching Ronnie’s ton tally – indeed not many have surpassed 500, and Ronnie reached that total right here in Kiddy.

O’Sullivan’s 500th century came at the Glades Arena way back in 2007 as he compiled a 113 break in the second frame of a 5-1 win over Neil Robertson in the Premier League.

For good measure, O’Sullivan added his 501st and 502nd career centuries later in the same match, treating Kidderminster snooker fans to a trio of tons.

Both the competition and venue are now defunct – the Premier League concept was abandoned several years ago while the Glades, of course, closed in 2016.

In a quirk of fate, Aussie potter Robertson was also O’Sullivan’s opponent for his 1,000th century this past weekend in the final of the Players’ Championship in Preston.

In trademark flamboyant style, five-time world champion and seven-time UK winner O’Sullivan saved the milestone for the final frame of the match, clinching the title and a 10-4 win with a memorable 134 break.
