Five teams in Senior Cup semi-final draw
THERE will be five teams in the draw for the CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup Semi-Finals.
Needham Market Reserves’ participation in the last four of this season’s competition is the subject of an appeal of allegedly fielding an ineligible player in last Saturday’s quarter-final tie.
The match against East Bergholt United at Bloomfields ended 2-2 after 90 minutes, with Needham winning the resulting penalty shoot-out 5-4.
The appeal process will not be concluded prior to the draw, hence both Needham Market Reserves and East Bergholt United will be included in the draw.
The three other teams to reach the semi-finals are Ipswich Wanderers, Leiston Reserves and Old Newton United.
The semi-final draw will be broadcast on BBC Radio Suffolk at 8.30pm during the Non-League Hour of this week’s Thursday Night Sports Social.
The outcome of the appeal will be announced by Suffolk FA in due course.
