This was complimented by excellent fielding by a young Diss side, in particular Jack Stevenson and Daryl Wells, who took a superb catch in the deep.
At this point, skipper Blanch and Voisey set about building a good score, but neither could take advantage of the short boundary, the pair putting on 52 to bring up the 100 in the 38th over.
Diss captain Merrick got the breakthrough, bowling Voisey for 31. From then on, Diss never looked back.

Gipson did manage to trap Ferguson lbw for 27. However, despite a short rain interruption, Spinks (79no) and Dan Williman (6no) guided Diss home in the 19th over.
