Yesterday Bramford United, Laxfield FC and Walsham Le Willows B progressed to the semi finals of the Primary Cup. Next Saturday Stowupland Falcons Reserves who have been reinstated take on FC Whitehorse hoping to make it a clean sweep of SIL sides into the last four.

In the last week of the friendlies Somersham Reserves scored eleven times against Bury Rams, Claydon Reserves hit seven against Haughle United’s second team. There were a number of close games with teams winning by the odd goal. One game Elmswell Reserves v AFC Kesgrave A was abandoned after 65 minutes with the score 4-4. Ryan Cook of Kesgrave dislocating his knee. He is home from hospital now and everyone from the SIL and his teammates wish him a speedy recovery.

It is hoped that after six weeks teams of friendlies all clubs will have players getting valuable minutes under their belts after the long break for Covid,

Well over 150 games including County Cup games have been played and a special thanks to all secretaries for the help in organising these games and to all the Referees who have covered these matches.

The Semi Finals and Finals of the Suffolk County FA Cups will be taking place over the next couple or three weeks and good luck goes to all SIL teams taking part.

Now it is time for the league officials to take on their close season organisation in time for the new season including myself to get prepared with fixtures for the start in August.
