Long Melford Reserves play in the Thurlow Nunn Reserve League and were 11th out of 14 teams in the table when the season was prematurely halted due to the coronavirus crisis.

The decision was later taken to null and void the season, with Diss Town, Halstead and Walsham-le-Willows having all been vying at the top for the title.
