It means they have reached the highest level in the club's history.

Henry Lind, Diss Director of Rugby, said he was “delighted and in shock, I think.

“Two years ago we were bottom of London League Three, just missing relegation. To go up two leagues is just awesome.

“We have got a cracking group of players and, apart from one, everyone is home grown.”

He said he was relishing the prospect of battling with North Walsham next season.

“We have played in the cup with North Walsham and they always seemd to put their seconds out.

“In the league, we haven't played them since the league started. They have always used us as a feeder club, whether we liked it or not, so now we will be on a par.

“Looking forward to it. It will be an interesting season - and a very enjoyable one,” he added.
