Diss Town Under-18s travelled to Wroxham in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League East Division with only 11 players and no recognised keeper and lost 11-2.

Diss defended with great determination in the first half an hour, only conceding a goal in the 17th minute when a cross from ex-Tangerine Ryan Haylett from the right was put in by Ashley Smith

Nine minutes before half-time Smith had his first shot saved by emergency goalkeeper Olly Wimshurst before putting the loose ball in.

Jordan Howard headed in from 10 yards out at a 40th minute corner to make the half-time score 3-0 and set up a difficult second half for the visitors.

Wroxham added eight more to their tally after the break through Jake Appleton, Smith, Aaron Attree (2), Haylett (2), Jake Mann and Jack Barber.

Tyler White and Callum Bray scored for the battling Tangerines.
