THE Suffolk Senior Cup will be sponsored by CNet Training (CNet) for a ninth successive season.
A world leader in technical education for the digital infrastructure industry based at Fornham Genevieve just outside Bury St Edmunds, CNet celebrated ten years of supporting Suffolk FA last season.
After sponsoring the Suffolk Junior Cup during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, CNet then sponsored both the Junior Cup and Senior Cup in the 2015-16 season.
They have sponsored the Senior Cup every year since then and CNet Training Chief Executive Andrew Stevens said they were delighted to continue their association with the competition for the 2023-24 campaign.
He said: “The CNet Training team has been passionately supporting the Senior Cup competition for almost ten years now.
“We are proud to be part of this historic cup that is steeped in history having first been awarded in the 1885-86 season.
“This legacy really does mean a lot to us, as we continue to enjoy supporting grassroots football, uniting football communities, and helping to make more history.”
Suffolk FA Chief Executive Richard Neal said: “For an organisation of the calibre of CNet Training to be continuing their association with Suffolk FA, and in particular the Suffolk Senior Cup, demonstrates their continued commitment to supporting local sport and organisations.
“CNet Training are an internationally renowned organisation, known for delivering award-winning technical education, from entry level with an Apprenticeship in network cable installation through to high level data centre management programme.
“The 2022-23 Senior Cup competition culminated with Framlingham Town winning this grand old trophy for the first time since 1893-94, when they were known as Framlingham College.
“The 2023-24 season, featuring an intriguing mixture of National League System Step 6 and Regional Feeder League teams, looks set to be as open and competitive as always.”
The first round of this season’s CNet Training Suffolk Senior Cup is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 16th.
