In the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league, Mark Dixon’s Boca Seniors have been crowned League One champions after an 8-0 win over Neverbee Athletic.

Seniors, who trailed leaders Colonel Getafe 2.0 on goal difference, had to ensure they out-scored the leaders by a minimum of two goals on the night and Tom Bundy’s five goals helped the side reach that target.

Tom Pepper, Shan Hon and Saleem Jabbar completed the rout.

Getafe agonisingly beat Hedgehog FC 6-0 thanks to Josh Brown’s double, Jack Elsden, Mike Marshall, Jordan Kimsey and Alex Doyle but it wasn’t enough to snatch the title.

Wheeler Dealers have won the Winter Cup, beating Smakosze St Albans 9-3.

Dealers established a two-goal first-half lead thanks to goals from Jake Hoy and Tom Gajjar.

Lukasz Burchan reduced the arrears for Smakosze after the restart but Hoy and Gajjar both completed their hat-tricks in the success.

It is the first silverware in the club’s history.

Despite Blackpool’s straight- forward win over Volvo Selekt, it was not good enough to steal the cup from Dealers on goal difference.

Luke Radley’s four-goal haul helped Tekkers Slovakia to a 5-1 win over It’s What He Would Have Wanted.

Aaron Tilbury also notched for the victors.

Mark Beard FC were quick out of the blocks against FC Big Fan as Andy Spencer found the back of the net early on.

Big Fan player-manager Chris Houghton equalised shortly after but Niall Quinn re-established the lead for Beard.

A fine effort from Houghton after the break got Big Fan back on level terms but Quinn struck once more to swing the game in Mark Beard’s favour.

Frankie Wood and Sam Reyner completed the 5-2 victory for Alex Clark’s side.

My Dixie and Leg Day Pending played out a closely-contested match with the scores tied at 2 -2 at half-time.

Adam Wilmot’s determintation proved to be the difference between the sides as the vice-captain led his team to a 4-3 victory.

Leg Day’s Harry Tann, Matt Hutchison and Ted Bartholomeusz were all on target.
