Fourth Round of Bob Coleman Cup brings out some interesting draws

The draw for the fourth round of the Bob Coleman Cup has brought up some interesting ties.

If holders of the competition, Crane Sports, manage to get past their postponed third round match up against Division Two side Cedars Park, they will face fellow SIL Senior side East Bergholt United in the last 16 - a league fixture which was postponed due to the ill weather on Saturday.

Runners-up of last year’s competition Melton St Audrys have to travel to Division One Framlingham Town, who hit Ipswich Athletic for six last month in round three.

Leiston St Margarets will hope to forget about their 8-0 thumping Grundisburgh gave them in league duties recently as the pair have been matched up in the draw, which was made on Saturday January 4.

SIL Senior sides Haughley and Coplestonians have also been drawn against each other as have Wenhaston United and Ipswich Valley Rangers, who played one other in league action at the weekend with IVR coming out as 6-2 victors.

Meanwhile, Division One high-flyers Henley Athletic, who managed to turn over Senior side Felixstowe Harpers United in the last round, have been handed another opportunity to pit their wits against a top division side in Stanton.

Ipswich Exiles, who progressed through to this stage following an enthralling 5-4 victory over Bildeston Rangers in the last round, will face fellow Division One side Bramford United, who upset the odds in round three by beating Wickham Market 3-1 after extra time.
