Meanwhile, the impressive form of the Bungay club in county competitions under captain Ian Gosling continues with just a single defeat in the Suffolk EBF Junior Cup so far this season.
On Friday, Bungay play Thurlton at Beccles Con-servative club in the Area A
final of the Suffolk Senior Cup after beating favourites Kessingland and Lowestoft Railway in the previous two rounds.
In the Suffolk Bowls England competitions Bungay have reached the last 16 of all the three competitions they have entered.
Wins against Risbygate and Sole Bay mean Bungay meet East Bergholt or Brantham in the Norton Cup.
A three rinks to two win against Boxford mean that Bungay will now play Bourne Vale or Earl Stonham in the Millenium Trophy while a two-shot win against Marlborough means Bungay will play local rivals Halesworth in the Bert Edwards Cup.
