ONE of five teams will this season be crowned McDonald’s Suffolk Primary Cup winners for the first time.
None of the five sides that remain in the competition, which was first played for in the 1933-34 season, have previously won it.
Walsham-le-Willows B will face Laxfield after Walsham-le-Willows B made it two wins in four days in the competition to book their place in the semi-finals.
They were 2-0 winners away to Leiston A in Saturday’s quarter-final tie, while Laxfield won 2-1 at home to Haverhill Town Blue.
Bramford United will have to wait to see who their last-four opponents will be after beating Grundisburgh Reserves 3-0.
Clare Town Reserves have been disqualified for playing an ineligible player in a previous round and Stowupland Falcons Reserves have been re-instated. They will now host FC Whitehorse in the quarter-final on Saturday, with the winners then meeting Bramford United.
The semi-finals will both be held on Saturday, May 29th, kick-offs 2.30pm.
Old Newton United FC will stage the tie between Walsham-le-Willows B and Laxfield, while the tie involving Stowupland Falcons Reserves or FC Whitehorse versus Bramford United will be played at Claydon FC.
