Advantage now with Crafty Conny

THE SURPRISES continue to flow as the HUCKNALL SUMMER DOMINOES LEAGUE season begins to wind up towards an exciting finale.

But it is now advantage Crafty Conny, who sit in a threatening position without even picking up a domino.

For their two closest rivals suffered unexpected heavy defeats in the latest round of fixtures while the Conny players enjoyed a week off after their match was postponed.

Both current leaders and reigning champions Talk Of The Town went down 4-1 against Station Hotel (Hucknall) B, while second-placed Bestwood Village Social Club lost by the same scoreline away at Royal British Legion.

The sum total of those results means Conny, Town and Bestwood are all tied on 16 points, but Conny now have a game in hand.

Elsewhere a resurgent Station PH boosted their hopes of avoiding the wooden spoon with their third win in their last four outings after seeing off fourth-placed George Street Working Men’s Club B 3-2.

In the final clash, Shamrock outclassed strugglers Bentinck Club 4-1.
