Diss Reserves draw with Flotman
DISS Reserves completed their pre-season games with a 1-1 draw at Anglian Combination Division Three team Newton Flotman. Both teams played some good passing football although some wayward finishing at both ends meant that neither goalkeeper made many saves.
DISS Reserves completed their pre-season games with a 1-1 draw at Anglian Combination Division Three team Newton Flotman.
Both teams played some good passing football although some wayward finishing at both ends meant that neither goalkeeper made many saves.
Kirk Bardsley drew a good second-minute save to a Peter Hooks cross but Newton Flotman took the lead following a long ball through the middle in the 11th minute.
Bardsley and Matty Hill missed good chances before Jesse Payne-Wilkins equalised against his former club in the 37th minute after being found wide on the left by Karl Ansley.
George Watts-Sturrock forced a close-range save after moving on to a Payne-Wilkins header just before half-time.
The second half was even but most shots went high. Bardsley headed over four minutes from time at the best chance.
