LAKENHEATH FC will aim to take a step closer to emulating the Class of 2015 in the CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup on Saturday.
The west Suffolk side lifted the trophy three years ago, thrashing Ipswich Valley Rangers 7-0 in the final at Ram Meadow, Bury Town’s home ground. Lakenheath are pictured above celebrating after the game.
Kevin Sobiechowski was manager of the Cambridgeshire County League Kershaw Premier Division side then and is back in charge now.
Standing in the way of Lakenheath in Saturday’s quarter-final tie – the match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch last weekend – are Hadley & Ottaway Anglian Combination Division One side Bungay Town.
Both teams will be hoping to join holders Achilles and Woodbridge Town in the last four of the competition.
The fourth quarter-final, between tween Leiston Reserves and Brantham Athletic Reserves, is scheduled for a week on Saturday.
Brandon Town, who play in Division Two of the Anglian Combination League, entertain Touchline SIL Division One outfit Stanton in the fourth and final Suffolk Junior Cup Quarter-Final on Saturday.
The two teams will be vying to take their place in the semi-final and a tie versus AFC Kesgrave.
There are also three ties in the Days Sports Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup – one of which takes place at The New Croft in Haverhill on Friday evening – and four in the Suffolk Primary Cup.
The remaining last-eight fixture takes place the following morning in the Anglian Radio Kids’ Trust Suffolk Sunday Shield.
