Holders Leiston will face rivals Needham

THE draw has been made for the quarter-finals of the Suffolk Premier Cup.

HOLDERS Leiston will face fellow Step 3 side Needham Market in the quarter-finals of this season’s Turners Hyundai Suffolk Premier Cup.

The other tie sees Walsham-le-Willows entertain Bury Town in what will be an interesting west Suffolk derby.

The draw was filmed by Suffolk FA and released simultaneously via the Suffolk FA Twitter feed and BBC Radio Suffolk on the station's Saturday afternoon sports programme.
