Easter weekend throws up a mixed bag for Diss Town in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North




It was a mixed Easter weekend in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North for Diss Town, who after winning well on Saturday, suffered a home thrashing just 48 hours later.

The weekend trip to the Suffolk coast proved to be a pleasant one as Jon Abbott’s Tangerines recorded a 4-0 victory over bottom-of-the-table Felixstowe & Walton United Reserves.

The hosts actually had the better of the chances during the first half with former Diss striker Ashley Rankin having one goal ruled out for offside, while he also shot wide with the goal at his mercy.

However, the second half belonged to the visitors, who after a period of pressure broke the deadlock through the lively Kieran Hagan in the 67th minute.

And within five minutes Hagan doubled Diss’ lead – this time he fired in low after collecting Connor Kerry’s perfectly weighted pass to take his goal tally for the season to eight.

It was then over to defender Sam Last as he scored Diss’ final two goals of the encounter.

His first was an 82nd-minute header, while he completed his brace with a low effort in stoppage time.

But, having ended a three-game losing streak, 14th-placed Diss were brought back down to earth with a bump on Easter Monday as Lakenheath run riot at Brewers Green Lane.

The visitors had already hit Diss for six in the League Challenge Cup earlier in the season and they repeated that trick as striker Shaun Avis helped himself to five goals along with a strike from Kelvin Enaro.
