The sixth annual Pub v Parish cricket match took place at the Withersdale playing field on Sunday.

Parish team captain Mitchell Tompkins, led his team out to bat first and the team finished with 124 runs from their 20 overs.

Notable performances came from Will Wright, Sammy Fell, Mitchell Tompkins and 12-year-old Leighton Tompkins.

Sir Alfred Munnings Public House landlord and team captain Mark Shortt, had put together an enthusiastic team and they put on a respectable performance to score 65 in their 20 overs.

This was, as always, a great occasion when the villagers turn out to watch a fun cricket match where the emphasis is on taking part, whatever the level of skill and ability.

Following the match, all participants and all spectators were invited to enjoy afternoon tea in the hall.

Barry Cable who was the scorer for the match.

DISS TOWN U13s 11, Stow Town Hornets 4. It was a case of Thomas’ nap hand as Thomas Knapp came off the bench to grab 5 second half goals, helping Diss complete another big win. The skilful Knapp produced a lesson in dribbling as he tormented the overworked Stow defence. Knapp’s fifth goal was a sublime chip from outside the box. Ben Williamson had earlier scored twice to put the tangerines 2 up. An own goal followed, then strikes from Tristyn Tunmer and Ben Shepherd had Diss in full control at the half. Diss seemed to take their foot off the pedal in the second half and this allowed Stow Town to come back into the game. However Shepherd added a 2nd against his former club and the rest was left to man of the match Thomas Knapp. Diss:- Ready, Lawton, Chenery, Williamson, Broadley, Lanchester, Tunmer, Cottam, Shepherd, McGhie, Coates, Rich, Freeman & Knapp.
