Diss completed three undefeated seasons at Mackenders with a comprehensive 68-15 victory against Holt.

They blooded a large proportion of colts in the traditional Harrison Cup fixture and they will have benefited from playing alongside a number of experienced regulars.

Early exchanges were even but complete control was soon established by the home side, with the forward exchanges being dominated by Stephen Hipwell, Joe Brock, Matt Richards and captain Fraser Hall. Holt held out until the half-time break but the home side then scored at regular intervals, with Sean McClure converting at regular intervals.

Diss coach Dave Smith commented afterwards: 'Today was a fitting conclusion to one of the most successful seasons in the club's history.

The icing on the cake would certainly be a triumph in the Norfolk Cup final against North Walsham on Saturday, May 6.'
