In the Ultimate Football WGC Monday night Premiership, Steve Charles’ Blackpool defeated newly-promoted Welwyn 6’s 4-1.

David Willis and Greg Timotheou opened up a 2-0 half-time lead for the orange jersey side who continued their one-touch passing moves in to the second half.

Stef Saywell increased the lead for Blackpool shortly after the restart, essentially sealing the win for his side.

Daniel Armstrong did score a consolation goal but unfortunately for Welwyn 6’s, it was the spectacular own goal following that which was more memorable.

Sons of Pitches came from behind to beat Hedgehog FC 4-3 in the first Winter Cup fixture of the season.

Jamie Thomas and Stuart Madill put Hedgehog ahead but Chris Hood halved the arrears shortly after.

Luke Sullivan smashed number three to give Pitches a 3-1 half-time lead and keeper Charlie Bacon looked to have denied Hedgehog any way back in the second half with several terrific saves.

However, Hood finally breached Bacon’s goal and with time running out, Hass Zaman netted twice late on to steal the win for Hedgehog.

Meanwhile, Tobie O’Dell’s Free Agents picked up a straightforward 3-0 win in their Winter Cup tie.

Reliable goalscorer Matt Standen returned to Ivory Toast’s starting line-up on Monday for their Premiership match with Desert Shadow, netting a first-half hat-trick which was completed by an audacious aerial flick-on.

Dan Worsley scored the other goal for Toast, giving them a comfortable 4-0 first-half lead.

Andrew Holloway completed a well-worked attacking move to score for Shadow minutes into the second half although goals from Richard Milverton and James Wright increased the lead to 6-1.

Shadow’s Lee Carey then made it 6-2 while his brother Jamie picked up the man-of-the-match accolade for some fine goalkeeping.

James Wright rounded off the scoring and bagged his second of the night to make it 7-2.

Premiership leaders The Old Guard won 11-0 against My Dixie.

Guard forward and man-of-the-match Rhys Lawrence showed some phenomenal skill throughout and he completed his hat-trick with a brilliant volley.

Neil Doctor, Taylor Evanson, Charlie Payne and Charlie Lloyd all contributed to the scoreline.

Rag Rovers established a 4-1 half-time lead against Groovy Gang with a treble from Nathan Studholme and Dan Dixon’s strike.

In the second half, which was again dominated by Rovers, Studholme picked up his fourth goal and Savas Caliskan completed the 6-1 victory.
