Domino champions celebrate record season

CELEBRATION: Dianne Augustin from Jamaica National Bank hands out one of the prizes to a Brixton Immortals team member

BRIXTON IMMORTALS, the newly-crowned Anglo Caribbean Domino Champions, hosted their annual dinner and dance presentation event on February 10 at the Brixton Social Club and patrons had a wonderful evening of excellent food, fun, laughter and partied well into the wee hours of the night.

The colour theme for the event was red to coincide with the Valentine period which was worn with pride by the ladies and men. This year’s event was well attended and the club welcomed its sponsors, Jamaica National Bank and Victoria Mutual Finance Ltd.

The evening started with a delicious meal prepared by Nadine Lovelace, the club’s celebrated chef and captain who prepared a beautiful display of Caribbean cuisine. This was then preceded with the award ceremony in which players were recognised for their performance throughout the tournament along with their contributions to the team.

Overall, the team played exceptionally well and created new records in the annual domino tournament which attracted other clubs from all over the UK. Brixton Immortals was the first ever team to win so many matches in one season while losing only one. After beating the Mighty Wolverhampton in the final, they were crowned champions for 2018.

Dianne Augustin and Kimona Wilson from Jamaica National Bank handed out trophies and special awards to the following team members for their own exceptional performances throughout the season.
