AFC Sudbury entertain Barking FC tomorrow as Bostik League action returns to the town for the first time in seven weeks, writes Darren Theobald.

After their exciting exploits in the FA Cup, the home side will be keen to build on their win last weekend at Felixstowe & Walton United.

Wednesday night in Sudbury saw the official switch on of their new LED Floodlights, and a bumper crowd of 703 watched an impressive Ipswich Town under 23’s run out 3-0 winners over a home X1.

Tomorrow’s visitors, Barking FC, currently sit 15th in the league, just two places above Sudbury (W3, D0, L5) and on nine points.

They too, like Sudbury, are out of all FA competitions having departed the FA Trophy at the weekend to Hayes & Yeading United. In the league they have beaten Romford, Mildenhall and Dereham. A win for either team today would see them climb a few places up the Bostik North table.

Sudbury will be looking to get a home league win under their belt, having suffered defeats to Heybridge Swifts and Bowers & Pitsea in their only two home leagues matches this season.

After the AFC Academy U18’s team performance at home midweek, beating Wroxham U18’s (previously unbeaten all season) 11-1 in the FA Youth Cup, Sudbury manager Mark Morsley is hoping his team can build on their win at Felixstowe & Walton United last week.

He said: “Another important league game up next against in form Barking. We will be looking to build on the excellent performance at Felixstowe last week but we know this will be another challenge.

“Unfortunately Mekhi McKenzie picked up a dead leg in the Ipswich Town game on Wednesday, but Paul Hayes is back to full fitness as is the rest of the squad.”

The game kicks off at 3pm, with gates open from 1pm.

AFC Sudbury reserves have a weekend off with no match, whilst the Sudbury ‘A’ team travel to Tollesbury in the Border League. On Sunday the ladies team entertain Cambridge City ladies with a 2pm kick-off.
