GLORIOUS TWELFTH -- leaders Abu Dhabi made it 12 wins out of 12 in the Hucknall Six-A-Side League.

The incredible season of invincible leaders Abu Dhabi continued in the latest round of matches in the HUCKNALL SIX-A-SIDE LEAGUE at The National Academy.

Last season’s champions extended their 100% record this term to 12 matches with a 5-3 success over KFC in the Leisure Leagues-run competition.

It has to be said that KFC belied their lowly position in the league and pushed the tabletoppers all the way. But Abi Dhabi had just enough to maintain their winning streak.

Mind you, remaining just two points behind in second place are Naughty America after a 5-2 victory over Baywatch Babes. It was their tenth success of the campaign and keeps them four points ahead of the chasing pack.

Elsewhere the impressive form of third-placed Team 316 continued with a 5-2 win over The Groomsmen. It was their fourth consecutive victory, and they have two games in hand on Naughty Anerica.

In the bottom half of the table, Warriors were the only team to pick up points, getting back to winning ways by defeating Tea And Busquets 3-0. But Wa1tz D1sn3y went down 3-1 in a close encounter with Asian Persuasion, who stay fifth.

On a sad note, Newstead have withdrawn from the league, leaving organisers looking for a replacement team. Anyone interested should ring Dave Long on 07958 804924 or e-mail davelong@leisureleagues.co.uk
