Five More Cup Finalists Should Be Decided

FIVE MORE county cup finalists should be confirmed this weekend.

Two of those will be in the Suffolk FA Junior Cup, where two Touchline SIL Division One sides will be bidding to set up a meeting in the final scheduled for the Weston Homes Community Stadium, home of Colchester United, on Tuesday, May 9th, subject to the U’s not reaching the League Two play-offs.

Bacton United, who sit ninth in Division One of the SIL, won the Junior Cup in 2010, beating Sudbury Athletic 2-1, in their only appearance to date in the final.

They face Brandon Town, who are third in the Almary Green Anglian Combination at Walsham-le-Willows FC.

It was back in the 1980-81 season that Brandon Town last reached the final, where they beat Haughley United Reserves 4-0. Brandon had previously appeared in three finals, winning two of them.

Bacton United (red & green shirts) are pictured in action above against Trunk (yellow shirts) in their 4-2 win at home in the second round of this season's competition.

Oulton Broad, third in the Lowestoft & District League, meet Benhall St Mary, who occupy the same position in Division One of the SIL in the other semi-final at Beccles Town FC.

The tie pits 2013 and 2014 winners Oulton Broad against a Benhall side who were runners-up in this competition in 2015.

The three Sunday cup semi-finals postponed due to waterlogged pitches a fortnight ago have all been rescheduled for this weekend.
