M & B NUNEATON FRIDAY NIGHT GAMES LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP RACE: Bermuda retain title after seeing off Stockingford.


REIGNING champions Bermuda have retained the M&B Nuneaton Friday Night Games championship following their decisive victory at Stockingford SS.

The villagers had further celebrations as they also clinched the 5s&3s crown during their three-nil sections success over Dave Hughes's Arbury Road outfit.

'Muda were in triumphant mood, their darters providing the launch pad for the overall win although they had to show their powers of recovery after Dave Parnell and Hughes himself had given the Arbury Roaders the early initiative.

However, Pete Woodcock, Kevin Taylor, Shaun Suffolk and Ian Wilson put the hosts darts title bid on ice by reeling of the next four legs to claim the points.

John Jardine took the final game for the champions elect to complete the 4-3 scoreline and leave Stockingford looking to wrap up the crown tonight on their own patch against Boro Social.

Dennis Harris, Mavis Millerchip, Wagger Millerchip and Mick Arnold was Bermuda's winning line-up in their old game

triumph, and with Fife Street doing Caddy Club no favours in their old game encounter things could be interesting

in the last league fixture between Muda and Caddy. Mick Day saved the whitewash as Sport's only winner.

By taking the first three 5s&3s legs, Keith Millerchip, Twaid Blurton and Paul Gibbon ensured the visitors of that section's crown but more importantly, it ensured their grip on the championship trophy. Ken Greenway and Brian Taylor took the final two legs for Sports. LAST year's Geoff 'Snowy' Evans dominoes tournament runners-up - Deano's Dream Team - are hoping to go one better in the 2002 event having come safely through last Sundays matches.

They will not find it easy though, as they meet local Bedworth rivals, and one of the favourites, Baggies Seven, in this coming weekend's encounter.

The Works, winners two years ago, also progressed thanks to a last game success from Martin Richards and Mick Johnson's shufflers will need to be in top form in order to keep their ambitions alive of regaining the crown.
