SUFFOLK will try for a fourth time tomorrow to play their FA County Youth Cup tie away to Birmingham.

The third round clash between holders Birmingham and Suffolk, the 2008 winners, has been postponed three times already - once before Christmas and on each of the last two weekends because of the recent bad weather.

Suffolk will again be without the injured Elliot Hunter, their captain who plays for Bury Town, and have also lost Christy Finch to Cambridge United since he scored four times in the 5-4 victory over Cambridgeshire in the last round.
