Runaway Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division leaders Felixstowe & Walton United’s credentials will be put to the test after being drawn away to title holders' Needham Market in the quarter-finals of this season’s Omni Freight Services Suffolk Premier Cup.

Needham, who play two steps higher in the non-league pyramid in the Bostik League Premier Division, came through a tough test against AFC Sudbury to set up the quarter final against the Seasiders.

And Felixstowe will have their work cut out if they are to reach the last four.

However, the Thurlow Nunn League is guaranteed at least one semi-finalist as Haverhill Rovers play host to Kirkley & Pakefield, while Brantham Athletic have the chance to knock-out higher-league opponents when they entertain Bury Town.

The remaining tie sees Leiston face Ipswich Town, with Ipswich conceding home advantage even though they were drawn out first.
