Woolverstone United will face holders AFC Kesgrave in the last 16 of the Suffolk Junior Cup after thumping Tuddenham Rovers 5-1.

Woolverstone reached the third round after putting on an impressive performance to get past Cambridgeshire side Tuddenham, with two goals from hotshot Hayden Catchpole, one each from Marcus Lawrence, Aaron Gordon and substitute Justin Davies, last weekend. Jack Purfitt snatched a consolation for Rovers in the only real flaw to Woolverstone' display.

AFC Kesgrave beat Kessingland 11-0 last weekend to earn the tie at Woolverstone, which will kick off 1.30pm next Saturday, November 25, at Hazelwoods.

Fellow Macron SIL Division One side AFC Kesgrave won the cup last season when they beat Mutford & Wrentham 3-1 at Colchester United's Community Stadium.

You can see Woolverstone in league action today when they host Stanton at probably the prettiest ground in Suffolk, kick off 2.30pm.
