THIRTY-TWO teams will be looking to take a step closer on Saturday to success in this season’s Suffolk Primary Cup.
Only two of those sides even reached last season’s quarter-finals, St Edmunds 1965 beating Bedricks Worth 8-2, before losing in the semi-finals to eventual winners Bures United.
St Edmunds 1965, who sit top of the St Edmundsbury Football League, travel to Touchline SIL Division Four side Occold on Saturday.
Bedricks Worth, who moved across from the St Edmundsbury Football League at the end of last season, currently occupy top spot in Division Three of the SIL. They entertain AFC Kesgrave Reserves, who are second in League B.
AFC Kesgrave are one of 13 reserve teams still in this season’s competition and there are four ‘A’ teams as well – AFC Sudbury, Claydon, Waveney and Whitton United.
The Bures United team and match officials are pictured above being presented to dignatories before last season’s Suffolk Primary Cup Final in which Bures beat AFC YourShirts 2-0 at Portman Road.
