In the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league, Leg Day Pending played out a 2–2 draw with Motherwell.

Ted Bartholomeusz and Luke Howe netted for Kallum Baker’s side while player/manager Mark Norman and striker Josh Manhood scored Motherwell’s goals.

While the draw was a fair result, the point-a-piece wasn’t sufficient to put either side in contention for the Spring Cup, with the final round of fixtures being played out on Monday.

Academy Rejects picked up their second successive cup victory with an emphatic 6-0 win over Smakosze St Albans.

Captain and man of the match Jamie Riley netted the first goal of the game and this was followed by a clinical strike from Matt Wren.

Riley extended his team’s lead after half-time before a brace from Tyler Edwards and a second of the night from Wren completed the scoring.

A commendable display from Smakosze stand-in goal-keeper Sebastian Chudzik prevented the scoreline being even more damaging for the St Albans based side.

Four goals from Tom Gajjar and a hat-trick from Daniel Dixon were amongst the pick of the goals in Wheeler Dealers win over an under-resourced Two Goals.

Dean Sadler, James Ferguson, James Wheeler and Michael Miller also netted in this cup tie which perhaps was inevitable to end in a win for the Premiership side against Daniel Griffin’s men, who will be competing in League One for the new league season.

In League One, Darren Whyman’s opener got Hedgehog FC off to a flying start against their old rivals FC Big Fan who conceeded a further two goals before half-time as Rob Hay and Ross Saville both netted.

Chris Houghton’s men began to get back in to the game towards the latter part of the half and this enabled Dan Allison to produce a goal of the season contender.

Unfortunately for Big Fan they failed to take that rhythm in to the second half and a goal from Jamie Thomas effectively sealed the win for the striped jersey outfit captained by Charlie Bacon.

Ollie Jamieson reduced the arrears for Big Fan later on in the match but game ended 4-2 in Hedgehog’s favour.

Meanwhile, Inter FC picked up a 3-0 victory over Volvo Selekt thanks to strikes from Dan Smith, Joe McMahon and player/manager Daniel Hedges.

Mitchell Saunders made his debut for Neverbee Athletic in their tie with Mark Beard FC, however the second placed outfit were relentless going forward and goals from Niall Quinn and Frankie would gave Beard a two goal cushion to take in to the second half.

Another from Wood after the restart extended their lead before Geroame Dixon also netted.

Ben Sawyer opened up his goal account to make it five before captain Alex Clark rounded off the win for Mark Beard.

My Dixie beat Boca Seniors 5-0 in their Spring Cup encounter.

A brace from player/manager Toby Warner and a fine effort from George Robinson contributed to the win and while also Jack Hague netted twice for the purples, he now faces a suspension for unacceptable comments towards a match official.

Colonel Getafe 2.0 saw off Blackpool who were missing influential captain Steve Charles for their latest match.

Jordan Kimsey, Billy Groves and Alfie Spalding all scored in the first half for Getafe, while Blackpool could only find one goal through Luke Swift. Kimsey netted again after the break and a double from Shaun Munoz was sufficient to hand the points to Groves’ side.

David Willis managed a late effort to reduce Blackpool’s deficit to 6-2.
