IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton values the role that the Suffolk Premier Cup plays in the life of the Tractor Boys.

And after the recent draw the 2006/07 winners could be playing village opposition in the semi-final this time around.

If Ipswich beat Leiston in their delayed quarter-final they will meet either Needham Market or fellow Ridgeons League Premier Division Walsham-le-Willows for a place in the final at Portman Road.

Walsham hail from a small west Suffolk village, and it is to their great credit that they have reached this high level of football.

Beaten in the first round at Lowestoft Town last season, Ipswich have a history of playing a mix of seasoned professionals, young professionals and academy youngsters in their Premier Cup games.

In the other semi-final, Lowestoft Town meet British Gas Midlands Division One AFC Sudbury with games to be played by Tuesday, March 10.
