Football: Kirkley & Pakefield v Hadleigh United

The hosts have not been beaten since visiting Mildenhall Town on October 15, with four wins in all competitions in their six matches since.

Hadleigh, whose last five fixtures have all been in the league, have only one win from those games but back-to-back losses in their last two.

Mildenhall, top of the Thurlow Nunn Premier, are running away with it having amassed 51 points from 18 games (17 wins, one loss), and second-placed Stanway have a comfortable seven point buffer over the chasing pack, but a win for Kirkley & Pakefield could lift them from sixth to third.

Cycling: Ip-Cross 2016

There will be plenty to see and do at this year’s Ip-Cross with a host of family cycling events planned as well as top biking action.

The free event boasts activities like children’s fun races, a charity ride, and an indoor test track, as well as trade and cycle club stands, a Round the World by Bike talk and food and drink on sale.

The showpiece attraction though will be round three of the British Cycling National Trophy Series on the Sunday from 10.15am.

Basketball: Ipswich v Team Newcastle University

It’s a busy weekend for Ipswich’s basketball side as they play two matches in the National Basketball League Division 2.

After travelling away to Kent Crusaders on Saturday they face Newcastle at 3pm on Sunday.

This will be the second time Ipswich have met their visitors this season, having lost the reverse fixture 104-91 on November 13.

Their match on November 19 though, at home to Doncaster Danum Eagles, was a 106-62 victory, so off the back of that clear victory the team will be hoping to record some good results this weekend.
