BETHNAL GREEN UNITED were one of the many clubs up and down the country hit by the arctic conditions at the weekend, as their Essex Senior League Cup quarter-final at Barkingside was called off due to a frozen pitch.

Clapton's game at Mauritius Sports also fell by the wayside, as did London APSA's League Cup quarter-final second leg clash at home to Takeley.

No dates have been set for the re-arranged fixtures as the Recorder went to press.

If the weather improves, APSA are due to travel to Takeley on Boxing Day with kick-off at 12-noon.
