It’s all to play for in the HUCKNALL WINTER DOMINOES LEAGUE as an exciting season enters its Christmas and New Year break.

For just two points separate the top six teams after the first seven matches.

And to demonstrate how tight it is, five of the ten sides boast identical leg-differece tallies of for 19, against 16 -- even two teams, Bestwood Village Social Club and Royal British Legion, who are supposedly struggling in the bottom four.

In the latest round of matches, the top three in the table, Central Club, Empire and Conny, all suffered 3-2 home defeats -- against George Street, Bentinck Club and Bestwood respectively. But the bottom two both lost again -- Station PH 3-2 away to Shamrock and Sherwood Ranger 5-0 at home to Legion.
