Sporting 87 to host Ipswich Town in cup
SPORTING 87 will entertain Ipswich Town in the first round of this season’s Blue Square Solutions Suffolk Boys’ Under-18 Midweek Cup.
It will be a big test for Sporting 87 against Ipswich Town’s Under-16s when the competition kick-offs in late September.
AFC Sudbury, who have won the competition in each of the last four completed seasons – the 2019-20 competition was not completed due to the coronavirus pandemic – will be away to Mildenhall Town in round one.
Seven teams received a bye into the second round draw.
Players from AFC Sudbury are pictured above receiving their medals following their 4-1 victory over Walsham-le-Willows in the 2018-19 final at Portman Road.
