EIGHT Macron SIL Senior Division sides will host teams from different leagues in the first round of this season’s CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup.
Among them are Bildeston Rangers, last season’s losing finalists, who will be at home to Bungay Town, who play in Division One of the Anglian Combination League.
Another is Leiston St Margarets, who host Thurlow Nunn League Division One South Ipswich Wanderers, who lost to Bildeston Rangers at the semi-final stage last season. SIL clubs were drawn out as the home team in 11 of the 16 ties.
There are two new teams in this season’s competition – Brandon Town, who lost in last season’s semi-finals of the Total Football Suffolk Junior Cup, and Ipswich Vale Exiles.
Brandon Town will have home advantage when they take on Lowestoft-based Waveney, while Ipswich Vale Exiles travel to Brantham Athletic Reserves.
