The story of how Sussex, the oldest of the county clubs, finally won the County Championship in 2003, 164 years after they were founded. It tells the background behind the 1996 revolution that made it all possible; explains just how the title was won; profiles the major players in the drama; and talks to the merry ghosts of other, failed campaigns.
