Local Diss Sport

The Great British Cycling Festival comes to Norfolk this June, offering fun, free activities and everyone is invited to share in the action of this exciting spectacle.

Harleston Town have appointed Nicky Howell and Nathan Stone as joint managers after the club were unsuccessful in their appeal against relegation to the Anglian Combination Premier Division.

There were contrasting finishes in the Diss Cycling Club's road races at North Lopham, with the men's race won by Matt Day after a long solo break, while the women's race saw Becky Ridge prevail in the tightest of sprints.

It is one of the world's fastest growing sports, tipped as a future Olympic event, and now a Norfolk sports club has looked to be first to take advantage of the boom in padel tennis.

Harleston Magpies Under-12s girls came agonisingly close to winning the National Championship at Nottingham, losing 1-0 to Sevenoaks in the final.

Harleston Town says they will appeal against a decision which has seen them thrown out of the Thurlow Nunn First Division North.

Harleston Magpies Under-12 girls travel to Nottingham University at the weekend to play in the England Hockey National Finals.

Diss began their second straight season in the Norfolk Alliance Premier Division with a tight home defeat against defending champions Fakenham.

It was a day that lives long in the memory of people in Diss — and 25 years since tiny Diss Town triumphed at Wembley is still extra special.

It is the most memorable day in the town's modern history, when the streets of Diss emptied to fill Wembley to see Diss Town lift the FA Vase trophy.
