Diss run out of steam
For the long trip to North Runcton, Diss included veterans Mick Tooke and Andy Tebble, who replaced the unavailable Henry Rush and Dave Tooke. Winning the toss for the fourth consecutive time this season, skipper Simon Cooper elected to bowl.

Winning the toss for the fourth consecutive time this season, skipper Simon Cooper elected to bowl. Gooderham made the early breakthrough, having Jefferson caught by Chris Cooper for just three, with Barrett and South African, Jonker, following soon after. Forder, a Norfolk over 50s star, and Coote stabilised the situation for the home side until the unfortunate Coote had to retire after being struck in the face by a nasty, lifting delivery. Cooper then removed Forder, with Spinks taking a magnificent catch.
Will Dawson was the pick of the bowlers with three for 20, as the hosts ran up a score of 214 for five, with Skipper 41 and the left-handed Hemeter unbeaten on 55.
In reply, Ben Spinks was promoted up the order and used his silky skills to score a very impressive 48, with some exquisite boundaries.

James Wilby was back to his best with a solid 37, as the pair put on 89 for the first wicket in a solid start, which Diss failed to capitalise on.
Ring, with two wickets in an over, started the rot as the turning point came when Rob Tooke was trapped leg before for a second-ball duck. Dawson produced some fine shots in his attractive 48 and did his best to rescue the situation, together with Simon Cooper, assisted by a Mick Tooke shot of the match with a straight drive six, which in the end was to no avail, as Diss finished 13 runs short on 201 for eight.
