The Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Six-a-side League played pre-season friendlies ahead of its spring season.

In the meeting of champions, Premiership winners Rag Rovers faced Championship winners The Rock.

Rovers took a two-goal lead early on and looked to be cruising but Adam Wright’s men fought back strongly and were 3-2 in no time.

Sam Cockhill levelled for Rovers but a strong finish by The Rock made it 7-3 at the final whistle.

Luke Jones and Dan Harper both got two goals each.

Hedgehog were also impressive against a depleted Flumpy side.

With the scores level at half-time, Hedgehog surged ahead in the second half to finish 5-1 winners.

Got No Fans were able to pick up a 2-1 win over Stevie Wonder thanks to a strong second half-display from Marcus Mengal.

They also got the better of SD & Carlton Cole in their second game of the evening with a 3-0 win.

Real Sons managed a memorable comeback against The Mavericks having trailed 2-0. Ryan Hennessey managed a brace as they won 5-2.

In an entertaining game Neverbee Athletic were beaten 4-3 by Flights FC. Flights led 4-1 by half-time but goals from Ollie Jamieson and Dominic Gillick brought a nervous finish to the game.

Volvo Selekt won 1-0 over Boyz2Men with a single goal by Phil Winter while in the last game of the night, a Stephen Kealy hat-trick gave Blackpool a 5-1 victory over FC Rangers.
