The Fellowship moved into the top half of the table in the Hemel Hempstead Leisure Leagues Premiership this week, following a defiant victory over current champions Chicken Kiev.

Kiev were 3-2 down at half-time although captain Jake Spencer will be pleased that striker Joe Boggins has re-gained some form, as he contributed two goals for his team.

Unfortunately for them it wasn’t sufficient to prevent defeat as The Fellowship increased the pressure in the second half, with Nick Botnick converting a hat-trick.

Fat Dads continued their impressive unbeaten run with a convincing win over experienced Premiership boys Hemel Elite.

Following a series of well-worked passing moves, Fat Dads found themselves 5-2 ahead at the half-time whistle and a fantastic second half display from man of the match James Lamsby enabled the Dads to convert another five on target before the game finished.

Elite doubled their goals second half, but it wasn’t sufficient to concern the Dads, who won the match 10-4.

Improving Norfolk & Chance were pitted against Jobseeker’s Allowance FC in their Championship tie this week.

It was a very close game throughout and this was evident by the 2-2 scoreline at half-time.

In the second half, man of the match Scott Cowham converted a powerful right foot half-volley in to the bottom corner of the Jobseeker’s goal for undoubtedly goal of the night.

Despite a valiant team effort, Norfolk were eventually overcome by Jobseeker’s attacks, which saw former agile keeper Amjad Mahmood score two on his out-field debut, contributing to a 5-3 win.

Premiership table-toppers Puyol Pants Down faced second-placed 2 Goals 1 Cup this week in what should have been another close game.

Unfortunately for 2 Goals, they were significantly under-strength with at least two key players missing and this was compounded by relentless pressure from Puyol Pants Down, who were inspired by team captain and man of the match Dan Devine who scored four on the night.

The 13-4 win extends their lead at the top to four points and, in theory, a win next week would seal them the title.

Championship leaders AEK Hemel made it four wins from four with a 12-3 victory over Brazilian boys Gremio.

AEK had done most of the hard work in the first half as they established a five-goal lead, going in to the interval 7-2 ahead.

Marcus Evans stood out for his team with a strong performance on the night. AEK face third-placed Butterflies next week, who will look to overturn their defeat earlier in the season.

Butterflies maintained the pressure on second-placed Fred West Ham this week with a 9-4 win in their points match.

Man of the match Adrian Tomczyk was on form for Butterflies as they pressed from the outset, gaining them a comfortable 5-2 lead by half-time and setting the scene for the remainder of the match.
