Felixstowe & Walton United set to face Ipswich Town in Suffolk Premier Cup

IPSWICH Town will be away to Felixstowe & Walton United in the quarter-finals of the John Banks Suffolk Premier Cup - assuming the Blues win their first-round tie at Walsham-le-Willows.

The Portman Road club, who have re-entered the competition for the first time since the 2009/10 season, visit Summer Road next Wednesday in the one outstanding tie of this season’s first round.

And if they advance past Walsham to the last eight of the competition they will face another Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division outfit in the quarter-finals in the week beginning January 7, 2013.

Felixstowe & Walton, who are set to announce their new manager on Monday, scored twice in the final ten minutes to defeat Mildenhall Town 2-1 on Tuesday night to set up the potential money-spinning tie at the Goldstar Ground.

Holders Lowestoft Town will travel to Hadleigh United, who caused an upset by putting out Needham Market thanks to a 2-1 win on Tuesday night.

Bury Town, beaten 4-2 in last season’s showpiece final at Portman Road, will be at home to Kirkley & Pakefield, who had a bye in the first round.

Leiston, who required extra time and penalties to dispose of Haverhill Rovers in the first round, will entertain Woodbridge, who also had a first-round bye.
