HAVE the wheels fallen off at Talk Of The Town?

That’s the hot question of the moment in the HUCKNALL WINTER DOMINOES LEAGUE.

For after surging into a six-point lead and looking certain to be crowned champions, Town have lost their last two fixtures.

The latest defeat was a 5-0 horror-show away to struggling Royal British Legion, who were sitting next to bottom in the table.

Now Town lead by only two points from second-placed Station Hotel (Newstead), who continued their return to form with a 4-1 victory away to Constitutional Club.

The Newstead side leapt above Station Hotel (Hucknall) B, who slipped to a 3-2 defeat at home to Crafty Conny and now share the same number of points as Shamrock, who were 4-1 winners at Bentinck Club.

At the foot of the table, Empire Strikes Back enjoyed rare respite from a traumatic campaign by defeating Little John 3-2 for only their third success in 13 matches.

The week’s remaining game resulted in a 3-2 victory for Bestwood Village Social Club away to lowly George Street B.
