Diss Town Under-18s 1 Wroxham Under-18s 6
Diss Town Under-18s took the lead, but were well beaten by a strong Wroxham Under-18s team at Brewers Green Lane.
A third minute Diss free kick played into the danger area was not dealt with by the visiting defence and Keiran Gallen shot The Tangerines into the lead. Although The Yachtsmen had more of the attacking play it took until the 30th minute for the equaliser to arrive. There was a mix up in the home penalty area to a long through ball and the ball was pulled back from the goal line for Ollie Yun to shoot in. Seven minutes later Joe Muskett used his strength on the edge of the penalty area to create space and he shot in from 14 yards out.
Alex Lofts took advantage of confusion to a 52nd minute through ball to make the score 3-1. Nine Minutes later Matthew Ward cut in from the left and sent a fierce right foot shot into the far corner. Ryan Forbes headed in to make the score 5-1 after 70 minutes. Alex Brasero smashed a free kick from 22 yards out against the bar in the 82nd minute and with Ben Way colliding with a post Yun tapped the ball in from close range.
Diss Team: Ben Way, Will Aldrich, Matthew Munnings, Joe Hilton, Jake Groves, Josh Dunstan, Tyler Matthews, Ewan Chamberlain, Jensen Martin, Kieran Gallen, Riley Debenham.
Diss sub (used on a repeat basis): Asa McGeachy, Shay Flatt.

Thurlow Nunn League Division One North
Norwich CBS 2 Diss Town 2
Diss Town travelled to The FDC in Bowthorpe to take on Norwich CBS in a game that will be the last for the two teams at least until December. The Tangerines dominated the first half as they aimed to make it six wins from six in midweek games this season. They should have had more than a 2-1 lead at half time. CBS put in a strong second half display to earn a point in an entertaining game played in front of a good sized crowd.
Diss started brightly, looking to put a disappointing display on Saturday behind them, and came close to taking a 2nd minute lead when Adam Race had a shot cleared off the line after Bryn Mullen flicked on a corner from James Bemrose. A flowing move led to the opening goal in the 8th minute; it was started in the left back position by Harley Peek. He brought Mullen and Keiran Hagan into the move on left before the ball was played inside to Matt Taunton. He released the ball into space on the right for Joel Wilson to move towards the goal-line and fire a fierce low centre into the danger area; Joe Easton could only divert the ball into his own net.
CBS drew level in the 15th minute when a deep centre from the right was steered in at the far post by the boot of Walter Rocha. Play was moving from end to end, with Diss playing a fluent passing game that led to a penalty in the 21st minute. Joel Wilson released Bemrose to outpace the home defence and get to the edge of the penalty area before being brought down by the lunging challenge of goalkeeper Nathan Pauling. The foul was judged to be just inside the penalty area leading to a yellow card and penalty award. Bemrose sent Pauling the wrong way from the penalty kick.
Diss shots – twice from Bemrose and once from Joel Wilson - flashed narrowly wide as the visitors looked to increase their deserved lead. Mullen brought an excellent save from 44 year old ex-Tangerine goalkeeper Pauling as he dived op his right to palm away a 25 yard shot in the 36th minute.
The excellent football on display was warming the crowd on a cold evening. CBS began to attack more in the second half and equalised on the hour mark when the impressive Rocha sent a scorching shot from an acute angle on the left into the far corner of the net.
CBS had chances to take the lead with one shot hitting the bar and another against a post, but Diss were using their attacking pace to effect on the break, although at times better judged passes could have created a winning goal.
Honours ended even as the teams left to take an unplanned Winter break.
Diss team: Adam Rix, Matt Wilson, Harley Peek, Harry Creamer, Owen French, Adam Race, Joel Wilson, Matt Taunton, James Bemrose, Keiran Hagan, Bryn Mullen.
Diss subs: Owen Woodhouse, Jack Hutchinson (for Mullen 82 mins), Callum Maloney, Spencer Cawcutt, Connor Nicolle.
