TEN Suffolk County Cup Finalists will be decided over the course of the weekend.

The action gets under way with the CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup Semi-Final between East Bergholt United and Leiston Reserves on Saturday afternoon. (See separate previews).

The other nine semi-finals are all taking place on Sunday, with five in the morning and a further four in the afternoon.

Holders Kitchener Taverners will be bidding to make it three final appearances out of the last five seasons the Suffolk Sunday Cup has taken place.

The Ipswich Sunday Football League side are at home to Barrow of the Premier Logos Bury & District League.

The other semi-final is also an East versus West match-up, except this time it is Moreton Hall Ferals who have home advantage against AFC Bergholt, last season’s runners-up.

In the Veo Suffolk Sunday Shield there’s an all-ISFL meeting between Division One sides Leiston Orient and Great Blakenham Chequers.

The other tie involves ISFL side Laxfield at home to Moreton Hall 965 of the BDSL.

There’s another cross-county meeting in the second semi-final of the Suffolk Sunday Trophy as BDSL side Bacton United 89 entertain Chantry Phoenix of the ISFL.

AFC Claydon,. 1-0 winners at home to Thurston a fortnight ago, await the winners in the final.

Who will be the side other than Ipswich Town to win the Suffolk Women’s Cup this season?

The four contenders will be cut down to two on Sunday afternoon. AFC Sudbury are believed to be the first club to have two sides reach the last four.

Their first team face Haverhill Rovers, whose two previous final appearances both ended in defeat in 2000-01 and ten years later in 2010-11, at Bury Town FC.

AFC Sudbury sit fourth in Division One South of the Eastern Region Women’s Football League, whereas Rovers are bottom of the North Division.

The day’s final two fixtures are in the semi-finals of the Best Badges Suffolk Veterans’ Cup.

Whitton United, who have beaten Woodbridge Town in each of the last three finals, are at home to the Woodpeckers in their last-four clash.

Neither Walsham-le-Willows nor visitors Lowestoft Town have ever reached the final, so one of them will be entering unchartered territory come tea-time on Sunday.
