Nearly 2,000 fans made their way through the fog to the Football Combination fixture at Upton Park, but only partially saw 55 minutes of football before the referee was forced to abandon the game through the visibility being literally down to nil.

Among the Pensioners' XI were many with First Division appearances to their credit, including Jimmy Smith, Bobby Smith, Roelf Oelofse and the two recent expensive signings - Ron Greenwood and Les Stubbs.

MATCH ABANDONED : 55 minutes
