Sunday 30 April 2017, Achilles 2 Crane Sports 1 - Suffolk Senior Cup Final, Portman Road
My favourite local cup final - every Senior Cup final I watch it is so obvious that for the players it is a dream come true to play at Portman Road. There is much argument about the location of cup finals with some seasons seeing 4 being played at Portman Rd. This year the Senior Cup is the only one with 8 more being played at Colchester United! Not a fan of all finals being played at Ipswich Town but would keep the Senior Cup Final there for ever and probably the Junior Cup and the Womens Final.
It is not only the players who love there day out- family, fans enjoy the experience and today it was great to bump into the Achilles Chair, Dave Morgan - who had waited so long to see Achilles win the cup - guess a few beers will be sunk at the Pauls club tonight.
