THE season for the Suffolk Volleyball Association draws to a close this Sunday with their annual finals day which will be held at Maidenhall Sports centre in Ipswich, and is held in association with Wilkinson.

The day will begin at 10am with the final of the Suffolk Plate between Stowmarket Stingers and the newly crowned Division Two champions Ipswich Sharks. The two teams have already met twice during the season with the Sharks enjoying wins on both occasions, the stingers however are looking to repeat their plate final victory of two years ago.

Following the plate final a tournament will be held at 12.30pm, which will be made up of players from all the teams in the Suffolk Volleyball Association, playing in a round robin style tournament. Entry to the tournament will cost £1 per person and must be paid in advance.

Places are limited, so if you wish to enter, please send an email to Pat at: edwinlambert@madasafish.com for more information.

The Suffolk Cup final will follow at 3pm between the Ipswich Moles and the League Division One runners-up Stowmarket, who look to add to their impressive list of cup wins which includes three straight cup victories in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

Following the final the presentation will be held upstairs in the bar, to crown the new Suffolk Cup and Plate winners, and also present the league winners' trophies to Newmarket for winning League Division One for the second time in three years, and the Ipswich Sharks for winning league Division Two.
