DOMINOES: Station are the champs

AFTER the enthralling twists and turns of the final weeks of the HUCKNALL WINTER DOMINOES LEAGUE season, the champions are the team who led the table at the very start.

Station Hotel (Newstead) marked their debut campaign in the league by pipping Talk Of The Town to the title on leg-difference (plus-16 to plus-ten).

The last night of action began with the top four all holding chances of being crowned champions. And after the ups and downs of previous games, it was remarkable to see them all win.

But Station, who landed their first six fixtures of the season before falling away, won the one that mattered — 3-2 at Bestwood Village Social Club.

Town triumphed 4-1 at George Street B to fend off Shamrock, who beat Constitutional Club A 3-2, and Crafty Conny, who beat Royal British Legion 3-2, for the runners-up spot.

To cap a memorable season, the dreaded wooden spoon was shared by THREE teams — Legion, George Street B and Empire Strikes Back — who all finished bottom with identical points and leg-difference records.
