Newstead shrewdies mean it

SUPER Station Hotel (Newstead) are proving they mean business on their return to the HUCKNALL WINTER DOMINOES LEAGUE.

Newstead has always had a big reputation for producing shrewd dominoes players — and Station are proving no different after winning all three of the season’s opening matches to power to the top of the table. Their latest success was a 4-1 romp away to Royal British Legion.

In stark contrast, last season’s champions, Constitutional Club, cannot get going at all in the 2011/12 campaign. They suffered their third defeat on the trot — 4-1 at home to George Street B, who tasted victory for the first time.

Sharing top spot with Station (Newstead) are Station Hotel (Hucknall) B, who extended their 100% start by shading Shamrock 3-2.

Beaten for the first time were Bestwood Village Social Club and Talk Of The Town, who went down 3-2 away to Little John and Bentinck Club respectively.
