Stuart Bingham to work with Terry Griffiths during the 2017/18 season

Stuart Bingham has revealed that he will be working with highly regarded coach Terry Griffiths next season and is excited at the prospect of teaming up with the former World champion.

The 2015 World champion was knocked out of the 2017 event after suffering a 13-10 defeat by Kyren Wilson in the second round at the Crucible on Saturday.

It brought the curtain down on an improved season for the world number three, who captured the Welsh Open title along the way, following a very disappointing 2015/16 campaign in which he failed to build on his triumph in Sheffield.

Bingham has enjoyed a surge up the rankings in recent years following his work with Steve Feeney, who is renowned for the invention of SightRight technology, although the pair went separate ways at the start of 2016.

Nevertheless, Ballrun is confident that the future is bright and looking forward to working with 1979 Crucible king Griffiths, who has achieved great success with the likes of Ding Junhui and Barry Hawkins.

“I’ve always had a coach, but haven’t for the last 15 months,” he said. “In a way, with how much snooker we play, you don’t really have time to have a coach.”

“Terry’s got good players around him and everyone speaks very highly of him, so it’s always worth giving something a go.

“He’s been there and won the World Championship, so he knows what the players are going through and will be good to have in my corner. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Bingham will also be using a new cue in 2017/18 courtesy of American company, Cue Creator, admitting that his current one is quickly approaching its sell-by date.

And the 40-year-old believes that these changes will be beneficial to him during the new campaign.

“Four or five years ago, I big chunk of grain ash came out of my cue,” he added. “I got it repaired but I’ve had it 10 years now and don’t think it’s got long left.

“This new company has come along and they seem really good. Things are looking positive for next season.”
