Club '93 became the first team through to the semi-finals of the Hackney Gazette Cup after ending the surprise challenge of Old George II

Club '93 became the first team through to the semi-finals of the Hackney Gazette Cup after a predictable 6-2 victory ended the surprise challenge of Old George II, the lowest ranked side left in the competition.

The Bethnal Green club, who currently remain in the lower reaches of Division Four - the league's bottom tier - produced a plucky performance but were unable to prevent Club '93 from booking a place in the last four as Leon Dennison hit a hat-trick.

Marvin Patterson added a double for the London Fields side while Carlo Fowler and Malaki Smith were also on target, with John Granger and Uli Izzet netted Old George's replies.

St Georges also reached a semi-final after advancing to the last four of the Albert Daniels Senior Cup following a surprise 1-0 win over in-form Bancroft United. Lee Brown got the winner in the second-half with an accurate lob.

Premier Division leaders Lapton show no sign of slipping up in the final weeks of the campaign as the reigning champions maintained their bid for a third straight title.

Dean Robinson scored two penalties in the club's crushing 6-0 defeat of Eureka, while Nasir Jones, top scorer Ibby Ranks, Maurice Byfield and player-boss Ade Wale also hit the target.

Two late goals from Marlon Campbell and Jonathan Mulonso kept up Clapton Rangers' challenge with a 2-0 win over third-placed Black Meteors, while bottom club Three Compasses collected a thumping 5-0 win over struggling Red Devils.

Division One Leaders Real Romania edged a 3-2 win against improving FC Metwin, while title rivals Army and Navy also survived a tough tussle to record a 2-1 victory over under-achievers Lancresse Rangers.

In Division Two, leaders Delta got back to winning ways following a couple of shock reversals with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Leyton Trades thanks to a Martin Hawkes double.

Wenlock Arms climbed to second in Division Three after Harry Turner's equaliser secured a 1-1 draw with Lammas, while Luke Ramsey scored four goals as Division Four leaders AC Islington cruised to a 6-1 win over Ravenscroft.
