Diss Town, after beating Ridgeons Premier side CRC and losing to Aveley, complete their pre-season matches with an away game at Anglian Combination Premier Division Blofield United on Saturday (ko 3pm).

DISS won for the first time in their pre-season matches when they beat Cambridge Regional College 4-3 in an entertaining match.

Diss took an early lead, trailed 3-1 at half-time but played some fine football in the second half.

A poor third-minute Diss corner was not fully cleared and Osiris Gomes hit a shot from wide on the left which found its way into the net.
