Kirkley & Pakefield Diamonds will play on their own ground in the final of this season’s Suffolk FA Under 15 Girls’ Cup.

They won their Under 15 girls semi-final 3-0 against Copleston Ladies at Sunday’s feast of football at The New Croft in Haverhill, which saw 18 ties take place.

They will take on Thurston in the final after they defeated Belstead United 4-2.

Suffolk FA County Cup competitions manager Adrian Moye said: “We had some concerns about the rain, but it held off and the matches went ahead as scheduled. Peter Betts and his staff at The New Croft did an excellent job on our behalf.

“We now look forward to staging our Youth Cup Finals Day at Kirkley and Pakefield on Sunday, May 14.”
