DISS Ladies can be exceptionally proud of a creditable third position in their first year in the Martin and Acock League Division Two.
The team of enthusiastic young ladies finished the season as they had started it, with grit and determination in this decisive game versus Pelicans Colts.
With the championship title in their sights, Pelicans started the game at an electric pace which did not intimidate Diss.
In fact it was Diss' Emily Crosland and Lucy Kershaw who had the best scoring chances of the first half.
Unfortunately, the first attempt was denied by the umpire and the second by the keeper.
The second half was a battle of wills as the Diss defence had possibly their finest game of the season, with player of the match Diane Marshall along with Pam Keeley, Keeley Reed and Charlie Everett, quite simply outstanding at blocking Pelicans' strong advances.

Unluckily for Diss a quick counter-attack by Pelicans found the back of the net which Diss never recovered from.
It was, however, a fine effort by all to concede a mere 1-0 defeat to the division champions.
There were a number of end of season awards made following the match.
Diss' players' player was Sam Howard. Most improved player went to Keeley Reed. Top goal scorer was awarded to Alice Brown. The team also took the opportunity to thank player manager Lindsay Cates for all her hard work and organisation.
Diss Ladies would also like to thank generous sponsors Rushall Farm Shop for sponsoring the new team shirts and Saffron Housing for their kind contribution towards the goalkeeping kit.
