Diss juniors away at Rookery Park took a team mixed with experience and debutants. Most of the Diss players were giving shots away which is often difficult playing away from home. Leading the team from the front James Biggs won 3 and 2 after being all square after nine. Adam Wright looked like he might sneak a half but went down 2 and 1 having to give 9 shots. Michael Manser and Josh Driver both succumbed to heavy defeats giving away 10 shots. Ryan Howell making his debut was going strong and was 3 up after nine but his opponent came back and in the end the match was halved. In the last match George Couchy played some great golf and almost holed in 1 at the 9th before going on to win 2 up with a fine birdie at the last.

In the first Easter high handicap competition Oli Lawton stormed through the field with an array of good shots to clam first prize with 23 points. Second was Rowan Sharman continuing his consistent form of late with 16 points and third on countback was George Paine with 14 points ahead of Eloise Hamilton-Barrett.
