WOOLVERSTONE United are out of the Parkers Pitches Suffolk Junior Cup in their centenary season.
Any hopes the Macron SIL club may have had of celebrating their centenary with a good cup run ended in Saturday’s first-round tie as they lost 1-0 at Melton United.
A one-goal margin was also all that separated the sides in the west Suffolk derby as Elmswell edged past Stanton 2-1.
There were good away wins for Bacton United 89 (3-0 at Beccles Caxton) and Kirton Athletic (4-0 at Bungay Town ‘A’) while Hundon town were 10-4 winners at home to Stonham Aspal.
Wenhaston United defeated Kessingland 4-0 in the day’s other tie.
The remaining first-round Suffolk Junior Cup (pictured above) fixture – Witnesham Wasps versus AFC Kesgrave – is scheduled for this coming Saturday.
Hadleigh United Reserves and Lakenheath Reserves are through to the second round of this season’s Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup.
Lakenheath Reserves were 5-0 winners at Debenham LC Reserves, while Hadleigh United Reserves saw off Haughley United Reserves 2-0.
Three high-scoring matches in the first round of the Best Badges Suffolk Veterans’ Cup were decided on penalties.
Hadleigh United won 3-2 on spot kicks after a 4-4 draw at Kedington, while Beccles Caxton and Ipswich Vale Exiles drew 3-3 away at Waveney and Aldeburgh respectively, before progressing via penalty shoot-outs.
Six teams – Coplestonians, Henley Athletic, Lavenham, Martlesham Old Boys, Mendlesham and Trimley Sports & Social Club – scored five times each as they went through to round two.
Spare a thought for Bramford Phoenix United and Tay Old Fellas who conceded 38 goals between them as they went out to Woodbridge Town and Ipswich Revolution respectively.
