The dates for two of this season’s Suffolk FA Cup finals at Portman Road have been brought forward.

The final of the Suffolk FA Women’s Cup sponsored by HomeStore Self Storage — between Kirkley & Pakefield and Ipswich Town —has been moved from Monday, May 23 to Monday, May 9.

The final of the Junior Cup sponsored by CNet Training — between AFC Hoxne and Henley Athletic — will still be staged on the previously advertised date of Tuesday, May 24.
