BRAMFORD United will be flexing their muscles in search of another Omnico Cup giantkilling tomorrow.

Bramford beat Stowupland Falcons 2-1 on December 28, and secretary Robert Stollery, who won two SIL titles and a Suffolk Senior Cup winner's medal with Westerfield under the management of the late Alan Burrows, says they are up for some more giant-killing.

“With respect to Stowupland, the general opinion was that we deserved to beat them,” he said.

“The Senior Division is a league where clubs have ups and downs, and we are hoping to get Framlingham on a down.

“Our priority must be to gain promotion but losing to Sporting 87 last Saturday when they went to the top has made this a tougher task.”

Bramford's pitch was one of the few in Suffolk fit for play last weekend, and their tie against Stowupland was switched to Bramford.

“We don't expect any problem with the pitch,” added Stollery, who said that the club is fighting back after losing a number of talented players three years ago.

“We were in Division One at the time, and a number of them are now playing for Woodbridge Athletic in senior football.

“Division Two is a strong division and a number of teams could hold their own in the top half of the First Division.”

Bramford have a young side that averages around 20 with Liam Siggers, who is just turned 18, in goal.

Josh Little and Ben Lapworth have shown consistent form throughout the campaign, and Bramford will be looking for good performances from them if they are to see off Rob Allum's Framlingham.
