are another of Diamonds opponents who have been around since 19th century. Founded in 1880 and like many at that time linked to a local industry in this case Engineering Works. Playing mostly in local Suffolk leagues they moved through Eastern Counties League and into the Ryman League in recent years before being allocated to Southern League Premier Central. A best finish at Step 3 was achieved in 2017/2018 season with a 5th place finish and a play-off tie which saw a close defeat to Dulwich Hamlet.
