Weekend round-up: Rugby club go top, vital victory for the Tangerines
Diss Rugby Club took advantage of Chelmsford’s match being postponed to go top of rugby’s London Two North East.
Roger Coombs’ men won 20-17 at Holt in a tight encounter that put them one point clear of Chelmsford, having played a game more.
Matt Dixon’s solitary strike handed Diss Town a vital triumph over Walsham-le-Willows in their battle against relegation from the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.
The Tangerines lost the same fixture 11-0 last season, but a clean sheet and Dixon’s volley handed them three points to move them within four of safety.
In the First Division, Debenham LC drew 2-2 with King’s Lynn Reserves, while Scole United were beaten 4-0 at Spixworth in the Mummery Cup.
Ipswich Town’s recent downturn in form in the SkyBet Championship continued as they lost 2-0 at Rotherham - the Tractor Boys have not won in three league encounters.
New manager Alex Neil continues to leave a mark on Norwich City though as they thrashed Blackpool 4-0 courtesy of a Gary Hooper hat-trick and moved to just one place behind the play-off places.
