In the Ultimate Football WGC Monday night six-a-side league, Wheeler Dealers remain top of the Premiership thanks to a 2-1 victory over It’s What He Would Have Wanted.

Following a goalless and closely-contested first half, Wheeler Dealers scored with their first shot of the second period, courtesy of James Wheeler. Mark Chappell netted an impressive equaliser for Rowan’s side just minutes later but a late goal from Lewis Wheeler clinched the points for the table-toppers.

Ben Smith smashed a hat-trick as My Dixie beat Mark Beard FC 6-1 while in League One, Boca Seniors defeated Hedgehog FC 5-1.

Neverbee Athletic picked up a straightforward 3-0 victory over Old Boys United thanks to goals from Francis Mardlin and Dan Hedges (two).

Meanwhile, FC Big Fan fell victim to a clinical Colonel Getafe 2.0 side, with a stand-out performance from Jordan Kimsey who netted a hat-trick.

Callum Houghton and Chris Dungate netted consolations to reduced Big Fan’s arrears but Getafe had already sealed the win with their first-half display.

In the Championship, Blackpool were quick out of the blocks against Mark Trayner’s Tekkers Slovakia with David Willis scoring after 30 seconds.

Willis went on to net a further three goals for Blackpool.

Glen McPherson, Paolo Goodman, Steve Charles and Greg Timotheou also featured on the scoresheet in what was a night to forget for Trayner’s men.

Smakosze St Albans were hoping for a repeat performance of last month’s scoreline against Leg Day Pending when the two sides met.

However, the result was almost exactly the opposite of that former encounter.

Smakosze looked fragile defensively and this enticed Leg Day forward.

Harry Tann (two), Lewis Black and Charlie Bell all scored during the first half to give their side a 4-0 half-time lead.

Smakosze improved in the second half and Michal Gawron took his chance well when he spotted Leg Day keeper Jack Hanson off his line.

Smakosze reduced the arrears further when a corner deflected off Hanson into his own net but Ted Bartholomeusz put the game to bed with a well-taken effort for 5-2.
