Football: Youth notes

17:40 09 May 2012

DISS TIGERS U10 finished their season with yet another outstanding performance, in difficult conditions. From the kick off, Diss were on top and Ryan Davidson breezed by four defenders to finish in the bottom corner. Soon after, Davidson made it two with a replica strike. Olly Budd, Charlie Norman and Joe Collett were playing exhibition football in the midfield with Bradley Budd keeping the Firside attack quite. Just before half-time, Firside clawed a goal back after a lapse in concentration by the Diss defence. After the break, Aaron Noller on the right, created lots of chances, however it was the irrepressible Davidson on the left who completed his hatrick by clinically finishing off some good combination play that included Collett and Norman. The fourth goal came from Olly Budd, whose surging run through a beleaguered defence supplied the inch perfect pass for Tompkins to finish. MOTM Kyle Bullingham, produced the one handed save of the season, diving full length to tip a certain goal over the bar. A top class save, appreciated by both sets of supporters. Diss Tigers 4 Firside Utd 1. This completes a great first season for the Tigers, finishing second in the Norfolk Youth Football Combination, Division 1.

DISS TOWN U13 continued their successful first season with another big win against a feisty Thurston team. Ben Shepherd opened the scoring with a fine long range strike before man of the match Cameron McGhie took over. He bamboozled the opposition defence to set up the prolific Alex Coates to add 2 to his season’s haul and also scored himself to make it 4-0 at half-time. The second half was much the same for Diss as Shepherd added his 2nd with another long range bullet. The Tangerines then scored the goal of the game as Ben Broadley drifted past Thurston players with ease before unselfishly laying it off to Harry Perry to finish. Ben Williamson showed great technique to rifle in a super volley that was cleared off the line, but skipper James Cottam capped another fine game as he was on hand to fire in the rebound. Thurston missed a penalty late on as Harry Ready recorded a well deserved clean sheet in the Diss goal. Diss Town U13s 7 Thurston U13s 0.

HETHERSETT ATHLETIC U10 lost by the odd goal of seven at home to Norwich United. Hethersett scorers were Will Bussey, Aaron Rich and Henry Kemp.

HETHERSETT ATHLETIC U16 were at home to Diss and went down 5-3. Scott Grimes scored twice and Hethersett’s other goal came from Tom Calder.
