ARRAN Grimes won the Arthur Melling Memorial League this week in what has been a fantastic season for the youngster.

Grimes, who won the title with three games to spare, said: "Obviously I am very pleased. I think I could have played better at certain times but I'm still unbeaten and I'm hoping I can end the season with that still intact. It's a nice trophy for my collection."

Marvin Joyner has put a string of results together as he beat Mike Bentley 9-7 in a nail biting last set and if his run continues it is not out of the question that he can better last year's final position of fourth in the league.
