Hagon also won the Graham Clark Trophy, while the youngster, Sam Bebee and Elliot Kelly claimed Neil Southam bonus points tankards. 

Club co-owner Phil Kirk said: “It was a difficult start to the year, but I think they deserve it. 

“It is a young team full of improvers who won our first league title since 2012, and our ambition is to go back and win it again.” 

Kirk is anticipating a change in squad for the 2022 NDL season in line with possible new average team building points rules.
