Senior Cup draw August 2022

Sporting 87 handed home Senior Cup tie

THE first-round draw has been made for this season’s Suffolk Senior Cup.

SPORTING 87 will be at home in their first-ever CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup tie.

The Bury St Edmunds-based side, who won promotion to the Senior Division of the Macron SIL for the first-time last season, will take on Trimley Red Devils in the first round.

That is one of three all-SIL ties – Coplestonians will host Henley Athletic and Halesworth Town will entertain Old Newton United in the other two.

Three SIL sides will have home advantage against teams from Division One North of the Thurlow Nunn League in the first round on October 8th.

Leiston St Margarets will meet Debenham LC, Westerfield United will face Framlingham Town and Ransomes Sports will welcome Cornard United.

Leiston Reserves, last season’s losing semi-finalists, will play East Bergholt United, who they beat at the semi-final stage of the competition.
