Rookery Park have emerged as favourites for the Parks Trophy after their impressive second round win over Thorpeness. Newton Green won an exciting second round tie against St Clements by two holes but could make team changes. Phil Gooch and Steve Cragg come into the reckoning.

Flempton, winners by two holes against Felixstowe Ferry, now face Bungay, who won well at Cretingham. Bungay will miss low handicappers John Formston and Peter Watts but include 70-year-old former club professional Nigel Whyte.
