By PHIL RAVITZ

Bancroft United blitzed borough rivals Old George to reach the Hackney Gazette Cup semi-finals on Sunday following an empathic derby win.

Justin Weatherman hit a clinical hat-trick for Bancroft, while playmaker Kadir Jama was also on target as the Bethnal Green side underlined their Premier Division quality against opponents from Division Two.

Des Meade netted a consolation for Old George, but it was not enough to prevent Bancroft from booking a spot in the last four of the Gazette Cup alongside Club '93 and Tottenham Phoenix.

Menalick Richards scored the only goal as Phoenix overcame Division Four high fliers FC Storm.

The semi-final line-up will be completed this weekend when Premier Division outfit Old King John's Head meet Wounded Knee in the one outstanding quarter-final tie.

Clapton Rangers ended Lapton's hopes of clinching an unprecedented treble with a 4-1 win in the quarter-finals of the Jack Walpole Cup.

Lapton had won the previous two meetings between the Premier Division juggernauts, triumphing in the league and the Dickie Davies Cup last month following a 1-1 draw early in the season.

But Clapton overturned the form book, taking a 10th-minute lead through Ashley Taylor-Forbes and sealing the victory with goals from Sid Egan, Ben Gracey and James Smith after Jason Elliott had briefly levelled.

Extra-time was needed to decide the remaining Jack Walpole cup ties. Eureka emerged as 2-0 winners over Gascoyne, Albion Manor overcame AFC Knights 3-2 and Mile End edged an all-Division One clash with Real Romania 2-1 following a late winner from Jack Higgs.

Real's lead at the top of Division One was also cut to a point after Army and Navy defeated Midfield 3-1, while Delta fell behind FC Highstone in the race for the Division Two crown following a 3-2 loss against Athletico Angels.

In Division Three, Jay Cubed netted a 5-2 win over The Aberfeldy, while Big Kahuna took over top spot in the division with a 6-1 victory over Royal Boys. Tom Rafferty scored five for the new leaders.
