SOME CRACKING TUESDAY NIGHT ACTION ON OFFER

As well as FA Cup replays at Saffron Walden Town, Haverhill Borough and Heybridge Swifts (v. Haverhill Rovers) there is also some cracking league action on offer on Tuesday evening.

Felixstowe & Walton United will be looking to maintain their 100% league record in the battle of The Seasiders at FC Clacton while Thetford Town could move level on points at the top with 3 points from their home game with Kirkley & Pakefield. The other Tuesday night Premier Division game is Histon v. Long Melford.

In the First Division Diss Town start their catch up in games with an intriguing Norfolk home derby with Swaffham Town. Framlingham Town have won both their league games so far and entertain fellow Suffolk side Whitton United. Fram will be hoping for the return of many of the 246 that attended Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Mildenhall Town. The crowd was the highest in Suffolk outside Ipswich Town and Lowestoft Town!. Also on offer is Needham Market Reserves v. AFC Sudbury Reserves.

FA CUP DRAW MADE

Both Thurlow Nunn League sides definitely through to the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup have been given home draws.

Great Yarmouth Town have been drawn at home to Chesham United from the Step 3 Southern Premier League while neighbours Gorleston will entertain the winners of Tuesday evening’s Saffron Walden Town v. Barking replay. It will be Gorleston’s first FA Cup home match since 2013.

The other three Thurlow Nunn League sides remaining in the competition all face stiff tests if they win their Preliminary Round replays this week. Haverhill Borough would be at home to Southern League Premier Division King’s Langley, Haverhill Rovers would travel to Southern League East Division Arlesey and Stowmarket Town would be at home to AFC Hornchurch from the Bostik League.

First Qualifying ties will be played on Saturday September 2nd with £3,000 to each of the winners.
