THE first County Youth Cup ties in Suffolk since March 2020 take place this weekend.
That was when Covid-19 forced the country into lockdown, with the competitions unable to be completed that season.
There were no competitions held in the following two seasons due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, but the competitions are now back for the 2022-213 season.
This weekend it is the turn of the Boys’ competitions, with matches scheduled on Sunday across all six competitions.
Action is pictured above from the match between Bury Town EJA (blue shirts) and Walsham-le-Willows EJA (red shirts) in their Boys’ Under-16 Cup Semi-Final at Walsham which was held in March 2020 just before the country went into lockdown due to Covid-19.
