AIDEN Bingham produced a super season to be crowned the first-ever winner of the Drayman’s Arms Pool Singles League.

The competition ran from November 1 to April 3, with Bingham – the youngest player in the league – victorious after accumulating the top tally of 36 points.

That represented a return of 18 wins from 22 games and was four points better than runner-up Mick Dolton.

Dolton then edged out Steve Smith in a play-off after both finished on 32 points.

It looked like Smith would take the title early on in the season, having gone ten games unbeaten. His run was finally ended by rival Dolton in week 11, though.

Vince Webster was the only player all season to notch an extra point for seven-balling Rodger Chappel.

Also competing in the league were Tony Branch, Bob Cooper, Colin Russell, Bernard Denton, Kevin Staff, Trevor Taylor and Des Yarnell.
