Diss Town, who this weekend visit Brantham Athletic, drew 1-1 with March in their last Ridgeons League Division One game.

Diss got off to a slow start and went behind early on as they played into a strong wind.

With the wind and hail at their backs, they had a better second half and gained a point with an own goal. Nineteen-year-old midfielder Jason Hunt made an impressive debut after being signed from Dereham.

Stuart Anderson shot past Matty Hill to put March into the lead after 70 seconds. Diss hit back and an effort from Steve Wright was cleared off the line by Rogan McGeorge.

Luke Pepper missed a good chance to increase the lead for The Hares. Stuart Jenkinson had a couple of half chances to equalise but The Tangerines had little complaint at being behind at half-time.

The Tangerines equalised in the 54th minute. Jenkinson played the ball to the far post and McGeorge played the ball past his goalkeeper, Chris Anker, for an own goal.

Anker made a fine save to keep out a well struck shot from Jenkinson shortly afterwards. Diss had more of the second-half possession, but could have been beaten if Anderson had not shot wide when racing clear with just Hill to beat.

Diss team: Matty Hill, Mark Shadrack, Ed Cussons, James Wilson, Steve Best, George Wilson, Stuart Jenkinson, Jason Hunt, Danny Partridge, Ben Soanes, Steve Wright. Diss subs: Luke Catchpole (for Wright, 68 minutes), Terry Minshull, Scott Thaxton.
