I had reason to revisit this thread looking for info. I never did ask David Bingham personally. He was a fairly aloof character and I barely even spoke to him in his time with us. However, with reference to the above:LEATHERSTOCKING wrote:Outwith the top division, I think only 3 players have won 5 championship medals - Dave Bingham - 1st Division with St.Johnstone (1989-90), Dunfermline (1995-96) & Inverness CT (2003-04), 2nd Division with Livingston (1998-99) & 3rd Division with Gretna (2004-05),
1- Do we know for sure he got a medal with St Johnstone in 1990? He made one appearance on the final day of the season I believe.
2 - He was still with Livingston in 2000-01 when they won the first division. Is this deliberately not listed for any reason?
3 - He was still a Gretna player in their second division championship 2005-06 and first division championship 2006-07. Albeit for the former he fell ill just into the New Year and never featured after that (he still played 18 games though) and for the latter squad he managed just 3 games before being shipped out to Stirling to complete his rehabilitation.
4 - I think he was with Forfar Athletic when they won the 3rd division in 1994-95.
Potentially he has nine medals, no?
He also won promotion (not a title) with Stirling Albion too! Quite a career really.
Apparently David Graham is claiming to have won five league titles on the trot up to last season (and having newly signed for Dunfermline has half a chance of a 6th).
