In the Ultimate Football Welwyn Garden City Monday night six-a-side league, the match of the night was played out between Daniel Griffin’s Two Goals and Leg Day Pending, managed by Kallum Baker.

Harry Tann gave Leg Day a one-goal advantage going in to half-time although within minutes of the restart Tom Cornwall had levelled for Griffin’s men. Baker’s side weren’t about to settle for a draw and they pressed forward, soon enabling Tann to net his second and regain the lead for his side.

Lewis Black secured the win for Leg Day with a goal just before the final whistle.

Also in the Championship, Boca Seniors got the better of Smakosze St Albans as they celebrated a 4–2 victory, which mathematically secures them the title with a game to spare.

A brace from front man Saleem Jabbar and a goal a piece from Tom Bundy and Shan Hon were reflective of yet another all-round team effort from Boca.

In League One, there was a very closely contested game between Inter FC and Mark Beard FC.

Dan Lewis-Smith’s goal after five minutes was cancelled out shortly before half-time by a Jeroame Dixon strike.

The game then seemed to swing in Mark Beard’s favour as they had good momentum going forward and this culminated in a goal from Frankie Wood, giving the second placed team the lead, momentarily at least.

A counter-attack from Inter opened up a perfect chance for Lewis-Smith to level and he didn’t disappoint.

A late chance fell to player/manager Daniel Hedges who finished clinically to clinch the game and open up a two point lead over Alex Clark’s men.

Hedgehog FC bounced back from their defeat to Big Fan last week with a 5-2 win over Neverbee Athletic.

Rob Hay’s side started the livelier of the two teams and it was Hay who opened the scoring.

Jamie Thomas and Ben Whybrow increased the lead for the striped jersey outfit before half-time.

Stewart Grice’s men looked like a different team in the second half; they had more possession and created several chances on goal.

Terry Jennings reduced the arrears with a wonderful individual effort but unfortunately for Athletic, they were caught out at the other end when Hay broke forward to make it 4–1.

A determined Francis Mardlin was not willing to take defeat lightly and his strong midfield display enabled him to go on and score.

It was a fantastic performance from Athletic goalkeeper Steve Moss that earned him the man of the match accolade.

FC Big Fan and Volvo Selekt played out an entertaining 2–2 draw with all goals scored before the half-time whistle.

Dan Allison put Chris Houghton’s men ahead before Lewis Voisey levelled for Martin Clark’s side.

Allison netted his second shortly after but just ahead of half-time, Alex Puchalla equalised for the yellow jerseys, with the score draw reflecting a fair result for the League One teams.

Goals from Mark Norman (two), Josh Manhood and Eddy Webb (two) took Motherwell to victory in their second grading match, this week played against Two Goals.

Premiership sides Blackpool, My Dixie and Wheeler Dealers all return to action on Monday.
