Diss Town take a break from their Thurlow Nunn Division One promotion quest today to try and move to within one win of a night out at Carrow Road.

The Tangerines have a place in the semi-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup in their sights and will be aiming to make full use of home advantage when they take on Fakenham from the top flight.

Diss currently lie fourth in the second tier while their opponents are mid-table in the league above them, so the tie at Brewers Green Lane should be a keenly-contested one.

Anglian Combination sides Harleston and Norwich CEYMS meet in today’s other quarter-final, with King’s Lynn hosting Wroxham on Tuesday evening and Norwich United having already accounted for Long Stratton.

In league action, Gorleston are at Clacton, Kirkley & Pakefield host Ipswich Wanderers and Thetford entertain second-placed Felixstowe and Walton.

Happy New Year. The turn of the year inspires many of us to set ourselves new fitness goals. For me, it is simply to continue running and to enjoy it. For others, I realise it may serve as the impetus to strap on those running shoes for the first time. So, if you are thinking of taking up running this year, here are a few tips I’ve picked up along the way which I hope will help.
