Leiston will face Needham Market for the second season running in the semi-finals of the Suffolk FA Premier Cup.

Needham Market manager Mark Morsley and his assistant, Richard Wilkins, will be aiming to avenge last season’s 1-0 loss to their Ryman League Premier Division rivals, where they have both previously managed, in the last four at AFC Sudbury.

Leiston went on to lose 3-1 in the final to Lowestoft Town, who will face Newmarket Town of the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division – two steps below Lowestoft – in the other semi-final tie.

The ties will take place at neutral venues to be announced in due course.
