JOHN Wybar of Aldeburgh returns from Aberdeen University to make his debut for Suffolk in the Anglian League match against Norfolk at Great Yarmouth and Caister on Sunday.

Also making his firs-team debut will be 15-year-old Rhodri Harston of Felixstowe Ferry. Harston has played for the Welsh Under-18 team against Ireland this year and is the reigning Welsh Under-15 champion. He also topped his age group in the Midland and East Anglia section of the Faldo Series after rounds at Royal West Norfolk and the Dukes course at Woburn.

With Jamie Abbott (Fynn Valley) and Jamie Moul (Stoke by Nayland) competing in the St Andrew's Trophy and Will Wright (Rushmere) unavailable, Suffolk will be looking for stability from the most experienced members of their side such as Brad Wilkins and Chris Smith (Fynn Valley) and Alex Holmes (Gorleston).
