DEFENDING champions Talk of The Town spearhead a group of ten teams contesting the new HUCKNALL SUMMER DOMINOES LEAGUE.

But pride of place in the opening matches went to Bestwood Village Social Club, who whitewashed Bentinck Club 5-0 to prove they are determined to build on last season’s third-place finishing position.

As for Talk Of The Town, they slid to a 4-1 defeat at George Street B, who were among the strugglers last term.

The remaining three fixtures also finished 4-1, with comfortable away victories for Station Hotel B (Hucknall) at Crafty Conny, Royal British Legion at Shamrock and last season’s runners-up, Constitutional Club A, at Station PH (Hucknall).
