Bury Town players celebrate after John Sands, centre, scored against Leiston in last season's semi-final at Needham Market

THE John Banks Suffolk Premier Cup semi-final between Bury Town and Leiston will now take place next week.

The match, which was scheduled to take place tonight at Needham Market’s Bloomfields ground, was called off following a pitch inspection late yesterday afternoon.

Suffolk FA this afternoon announced the new date for the tie - a repeat of last season’s semi-final when Bury won on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

The match will now take place at Needham Market on Thursday, March 21, kick-off 7.45pm.

The winners will play Lowestoft Town, who defeated Ipswich Town 1-0 last Wednesday, in the final at Portman Road later in the season.
