Possible Senior Cup re-match on cards
CORNARD United and Henley Athletic could meet in the CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup for the second year running.
If Cornard United can overcome Claydon in their first-round tie scheduled for November 27th they will resume rivalries in the second round a week later.

However, a win for Claydon will set up a mouth-watering clash between the top two teams in the Senior Division of this season’s Macron SIL.
Needham Market Reserves, who were 1-0 winners on Saturday at Framlingham Town, one of last season’s losing semi-finalists, will be away to Ipswich side Achilles, the 2016-17 and 2018-19 winners.
Ipswich Wanderers, who also reached the final four last season before losing to Bildeston Rangers, will be at home to fellow Thurlow Nunn League Division One side Debenham Leisure Centre.
Bildeston have been handed a home tie against Leiston Reserves, while another SIL versus Thurlow Nunn League tie will see Trimley Red Devils host AFC Sudbury Reserves.
