THE local football leagues were plunged into chaos by a freak snow storm this week that forced all matches to be postponed.

The white-out threw the Hackney and League's cup competitions into disarray, with the Hackney Gazette Cup semi-final between Wounded Knee and Army and Navy one of the major casualties.

The final was scheduled for this weekend, but has now been pushed back with the Jack Walpole Cup now due to take place on Sunday at Leyton FC's ground in Lea Bridge Road (11.15am).

The rearranged Gazette Cup semi-final will now take place this weekend when the league programme is dominated by outstanding cup ties.

Semi-finals have been scheduled involving Eureka and Clapton Rangers, who play in the London Sunday Junior Cup final at Cockfosters next week.

Clapton warm up for their final with a last-four clash with relegation-threatened Shakespeare, while Eureka will also be fancied to overcome Limehouse's Prince Regent.

The all-Tower Hamlets semi-final between Pollards United and Bancroft in the Albert Daniels Cup is also included in this weekend's programme.

In a much reduced league programme, there is an Islington Premier Division derby between St George's and Santos Athletic, while Tower Hamlets pair Mile End and Wentworth Arms face off in a meeting of second and third in Division One that will determine who accompanies Clapton into the Premier next season.
