Sides aiming to be crowned champions

THE TITLE of Suffolk’s top Sunday side will be up for grabs this weekend.

THE TITLE of Suffolk’s top Sunday side will be up for grabs this weekend.

The Best Badges Suffolk Sunday Cup Final is one of four taking place on ‘Suffolk Super Sunday’ at Bloomfields, home of Needham Market FC.

Kitchener Taverners take on Moreton Hall Ferals in the final, which is a repeat of the 2021-22 showpiece in which Taverners won 3-1.

Moreton Hall Ferals made up for that final loss by lifting the cup for the first time last season, courtesy of Callum Dongray’s 81st minute winner versus Mellis.

Both teams enter this year’s final with the chance of securing a league and cup double.

Kitcheners top the Premier Division of the Ipswich Sunday Football League, after winning 14 and drawing one of their 15 fixtures so far.

Moreton Hall Ferals’ record is almost as impressive, winning nine, drawing two and losing just one of their 12 matches to date.

Action is pictured above from when the two sides met in the 2021-22 final as players from Kitchener Taverners (red shirts) and Moreton Hall Ferals (blue shirts) contest a header.




Neither Bury Bowl nor Thetford Wanderers, who will contest the Best Badges Suffolk Sunday Shield Final, have appeared in the final before.

Thetford Wanderers could secure a treble this season, having already won Division Two of the Bury & District Sunday League.

They are also through to the BDSL Floodlit Cup Final, where they will take on Bury Town Bisons.

With 12 wins and just two defeats, Thetford Wanderers have had an impressive league campaign.

Bury Bowl, on the other hand, won five of their 14 league games and finished in fifth place. 




Barton Mills and Gardeners Arms have also made it through to the final of the Best Badges Suffolk Sunday Trophy for the first time.

Both teams currently occupy second place in their respective leagues in another East versus West showpiece.

Gardeners Arms trail leaders Martlesham Old Boys by nine points in ISFL Division Two but have three matches in hand on the leaders.

Barton Mills, who have completed their fixtures, can’t win Division Four of the BDSL and Thurston can go above them.




Ransomes Sports will be making their first appearance in the Best Badges Suffolk Veterans’ Cup Final, after knocking out holders Woodbridge Town in last four.

After four-times winners Whitton United folded, Whitton Colts were new entrants to the competition this season, and have reached the final at the first attempt.

Both teams play in Division One South of the Norfolk & Suffolk Veterans’ League, with Whitton Colts leading the way - one point ahead of their final opponents  who they play in their final league game of the season.




The Offside Trust, who are a partner of Suffolk FA, will be in attendance throughout the day and will be supplying captain's armbands for all eight finalists.

The schedule of finals for ‘Super Sunday’ at Needham Market FC is as follows:


Best Badges Suffolk Sunday Cup Final: Kitchener Taverners v Moreton Hall Youth Ferals, grass pitch, 10.30am
