Moving out of the Millfield is defender Mark Porter who has signed for Crane Sports, while Chris Dennett will come into consideration for tomorrow's home game with Godmanchester after coming through a reserve match.

Brantham, the last Ridgeons League club to be knocked out of the Touchline Sports Suffolk Senior Cup, are at home to Diss Town with Stowmarket Town entertaining Saffron Walden and Ipswich Wanderers at Thetford.

Metaltec SIL clubs Capel Plough and Leiston St Margarets are hoping to play their Senior Cup quarter-finals tomorrow after suffering postponements against Beccles and Lakenheath respectively last Saturday.

The draw for the semi-finals that are scheduled for February 28 has been delayed with only Corton and Crane Sports having made progress to the last four.

Crane beat holders 1-0 after extra time, which was Grundisburgh's first home defeat in the competition since they were beaten 2-1 by Long Melford on October 11, 2003.

And it was Grundisburgh's first home defeat in all competitions since losing 3-0 to Capel Plough on September 1, 2007.

Grundisburgh are still unbeaten at home in the league since that game - a record of 22 games with 19 wins and three draws. Tomorrow they entertain Felixstowe United.

Crane remain unbeaten all season, and they have a home game against bottom-placed Stonham Aspal, while newcomers Woodbridge Athletic have moved up to second and face Ipswich Athletic at home.

In a strange quirk Felixstowe United moved out of the Senior Division relegation places despite losing 2-1 at Ipswich Athletic last Saturday. This is because St Johns' 4-0 lost at Westerfield made their goal difference inferior to Felixstowe's. St Johns are at home to Stowupland tomorrow.
