Under 145 Cup is underway

The Suffolk Under 145 Cup was last competed for in 2013/14, when it was won by Ipswich.   They beat both Manningtree and Felixstowe in that season.

Four clubs have entered this year: the same three as in 2013/14, plus Bury St Edmunds.

It was originally planned for the Suffolk Cup & Plate tournament to replace the two graded cup competitions, but the clubs in Suffolk seem to enjoy the u125 and u145 events and they are both being played this season, alongside the Cup & Plate.

The first match took place this evening, with Manningtree scraping home against Bury St Edmunds by 2½-1½.   On paper the Manningtree team was very strong, averaging 136 grade, whilst Bury St Edmunds could only average 120.

The other two clubs, Ipswich and Felixstowe, play their first match on 8 November.
