Anglian Combination teams take a break from league action today, with the first round of the Mummery Cup being staged.

The holders of the Combination's senior knock-out competition are Mulbarton Wanderers, who beat Acle United 2-1 in last season's final at the FDC.

They begin the defence of their trophy at Division One side Attleborough Town, who were hammered 7-1 at home by North Walsham in their previous fixture.

There will be plenty of interest in Acle's tie at Beccles following the appointment of former Manchester City and Wolves striker Robert Taylor as manager in midweek.

Acle will be aiming to get their season up and running under their new boss, having lost their opening three league fixtures while conceding 12 goals.
