Diss Tigers under-16s travelled to Wisbech to take part in the 2Gether Insurance Autumn Cup.

Diss came up against Taverham first and managed to secure a 2-2 draw with goals from Josh Mann and Harrison Tompkins. Next up were Drayton Grange, whom they beat 3-0, with goals from Mann again and one a piece from Harley and Jackson Grapes.

After losing 1-0 to Leverington Diss had to beat Cambridge City to go through to the semi-finals and this was achieved with a single goal from Osi.

Diss then met Firside, runners-up in group B, in the semi-final and progressed with a 1-0 win, with Mann again on target.

Diss then played Derby in the final and lost a tough match 4-0, meaning they had to be content with well deserved runners-up medals.
