AFC Sudbury’s scheduled Suffolk FA Premier Cup quarter-final against Mildenhall Town on Tuesday is OFF after the recent deluge left the King’s Marsh surface deemed to be unplayable.

The tie will now take place on Tuesday, December 16 (7.45pm).

It means AFC have their first free week of the season and their first free Tuesday since August — when they were in action at home to Needham Market on Bank Holiday Monday.

David Batch’s side will now have an added rest ahead of their big third qualifying round FA Trophy game at higher-league St Neots Town on Saturday (3pm).

AFC have said the coach for the trip to the Cambridgeshire side, who play in the Evostik Southern League Premier Division, is now full and will be leaving at the new time of 11.30am.

Meanwhile, AFC Sudbury Reserves’ scheduled game at Halstead Town in the Red Insure Thurlow Nunn League Cup at Rosemary Lane (7.45pm), is still ON.
