The second-round draw will be announced via the Suffolk FA website and social media feeds at 1pm on Tuesday.

The wet weather played havoc with the Suffolk Boys’ Cups Second Round ties that were taking place on Sunday.

A total of 14 matches across the five age groups were postponed and a further three were abandoned. The third-round draws will not take place until after the rescheduled ties have taken place on Sunday, November 20th.

The first of this week’s second-round ties in the Veo Suffolk Boys Under-18 Midweek Cup takes place on Tuesday evening when Bungay Town host Brantham Athletic.

The remaining seven matches are all scheduled for Thursday evening and include holders AFC Sudbury at home to Walsham-le-Willows, the side they defeated in both the 2016-17 and 2018-19 finals.

Leiston, the 2020-21 runners-up, travel to Lowestoft to face AFC Royals and Haverhill Rovers entertain Ipswich Town U16s, who lost 3-2 to AFC Sudbury in last season’s final.
