GRUNDISBURGH will entertain Sudbury Sports Academy in the first round of this season’s Total Football Suffolk Junior Cup.
The seven-times winners of the Suffolk Senior Cup saw their 38-year stay in the Senior Division of the SIL come to an end following relegation last season.
That means they will be competing in this season’s newly-named Total Football Suffolk Junior Cup and will be one of 38 teams taking part in 19 first-round ties next month.
The remaining 13 sides to enter all receive a bye into the second round of this season’s competition.
Action is pictured above from last season’s final between Bildeston Rangers (blue & white checked shirts) and Bacton United 89 (red & green quartered shirts) at Portman Road which Bildeston won 4-2.
