Diss Town will continue to train despite Norfolk Senior Cup exit

Despite their season being ended by Saturday’s Norfolk Senior Cup defeat at the hands of Caister, Diss Town will continue to train for at least the next few weeks.

The Tangerines were beaten 2-1 at Brewers Green Lane by their lower-league opponents, who took a one-goal lead into the break before going on to score a late winner.

However, having had so long off due to lockdown, boss Michael King will continue to put his players through their paces.

He said: “We’ll carry on training, that was always the plan however far we got in the cup.

“The boys have been off for about four months and they are keen to keep going.

“Even after training we might look to keep them ticking over with five-a-sides, things like that.

“We want to keep them active after so long away, and we’ll also be working on some things for next season.”

Meanwhile, it was announced earlier this week that Diss and their fellow Thurlow Nunn League First Division North sides will get their 2021/22 campaigns started on July 31, with half of the fixtures set to be completed by November in a bid to combat any potential Covid-19 issues.

King added: “I’m not the biggest fan of a July start date because I like it to be traditionally the first week of August, but it’s nice to see some forward thinking.

“We might have to start pre-season a week earlier and training will be limited with all the Tuesday games, but it has to be done.”
