Lilley earned a place on the World Snooker Tour for the first time at the age of 43, thanks to a 4-0 win over Sean Maddocks in the final round of 2019 Q School event one.

A familiar face on the amateur circuit for many years, Lilley has had success in pro tournaments while competing as a โ€˜top-upโ€™, notably reaching the quarter-finals of the 2016 Indian Open and the last 32 of two ranking events during the 2018-19 season.

He previously worked in the insurance industry, but in 2018 took the decision to quit his long-term job in order to commit himself to snooker.

In 2020 he reached the last 32 of the European Masters in Austria, notably beating Ryan Day 5-0 before losing to Barry Hawkins.
