A round-up of the FA Cup ties from the Suffolk area.

Leiston won’t be under-estimating their lower-league opposition when Crowborough Athletic, from the Southern Counties East League Premier Division, visit Victory Road in the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round tomorrow.

Leiston manager Glenn Driver says the Blues’ footballing philosophy is the big draw for players that join the Bostik Premier Division club.

SIL Senior Division new-boys Benhall St Mary have signed former Ipswich Town youngster Tom Winter to try and plug the gap left by last season’s top scorer, Kelsey Trotter.

Leiston boss Glenn Driver says his friendship with Byron Lawrence helped convince the Billericay Town midfielder to return to Victory Road on a season-long loan.

Against the perhaps nostalgic backdrop of Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Are Made for Walkin’, captain James Mayhew led Framlingham Town FC onto the lush-green pitch and into the record books.

Leiston manager Glenn Driver believes Kyle Hammond would be challenging for a place at Ipswich Town, and not plying his trade in the Bostik Premier, had he not been hit by injuries.

Leiston manager Glenn Driver admitted his decision to release Gareth Heath was not taken lightly, but says his new signing, Chris Henderson, can have just as big an impact at Victory Road.

Leiston are ready to offer star striker Matt Blake a new two-year contract, should the free-scoring striker not leave Victory Road this summer.

Leiston boss Glenn Driver has hailed new signing Chris Henderson as “one of the best all-round players in the division” as the Suffolk side continue to strengthen for next season.
