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 U9 entertained league leaders Drayton with goalkeeper Lewis Allen having an outstanding game. Diss got off to a good start with an early goal from Christoher Lymbery after some fine midfield play from Caleb Palmer and Max Bowen. Drayton were pressing hard to get the equaliser, but were met with some good defensive play from Liam Hamling and Dylan Wilby. Louis Land was battling well in midfield with Thomas Lymbery working hard up front to keep possession. William Frary’s fine running from midfield helped take the pressure off the Diss defence. After several great saves from Lewis Allen Diss broke away ending with a fine strike from Benjamin Cohodar coming off the post. Drayton finally got the equaliser in the last minute of the game. Final Score 1-1.
