TOP-level club cricket could be coming to Ipswich next season.
While village side Tattingstone were clinching the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties First Division championship with a superb run chase at Exning, Copdock and Old Ipswichians were beating Browns.
Tattingstone's facilities are not good enough for the East Anglian Premier League so they will not be able to gain promotion.
Neither of the two winners of the other feeder leagues, Great Yarmouth and Cambridge Granta II, are in a position to move up either.
This therefore gives an opportunity to clubs who finishes runners-up. The Cambridge League runners-up do not want to be involved, so Copdock are set to play Norfolk League runners-up Fakenham.
The winners of this game will play EAPL bottom club Ramsey, and the winners of that game will play in the EAPL in 2003.
