It’s derby time in the Mummery Cup this afternoon, when Bungay Town take on their Beccles Town neighbours.

Hosts Bungay will be the underdogs – they are ninth in Division One whilst their rivals are 11th in the Premier, but using the adage that cup games are great levellers, then it is anyone’s game.

Harleston are unbeaten in the league but suffered a Norfolk Senior Cup exit at Thetford a fortnight ago so will be looking for knockout success when they entertain Mattishall, a team they beat 3-2 earlier this month.

Second-placed Norwich Ceyms – also unbeaten in the league – are at home to mid-table Caister, who are coming off the back of a 5-0 defeat at the leaders a week ago.

Hellesdon are at home to Wroxham Reserves, St Andrews travel to Long Stratton and Scole are at home to Mulbarton Wanderers. In the Premier Division, Stalham make the short trip to bottom side Acle while Bradenham Wanderers host Reepham.
