BOTH last season’s losing semi-finalists have been handed draws against fellow Touchline SIL clubs in the first round of this season’s Suffolk FA Senior Cup sponsored by Queensway.

Neither holders Whitton United nor runners-up Ipswich Wanderers are eligible to play in the 2014-15 competition after winning promotion, but the two teams they defeated at the last-four stage last season – Grundisburgh and Achilles – will be bidding to go one step further this season.

Grundisburgh will travel to Melton St Audrys while Achilles will be at home to Leiston St Margaret’s in the opening round of the Suffolk Senior Cup.

There is an interesting tie between the reserve sides of two of the county’s leading clubs as Leiston Reserves host Needham Market Reserves.

Two newcomers both face away trips; Claydon, last season’s Junior Cup runners-up, will be away to Debenham LC, while Woodbridge Town have been drawn away to Cornard United.
