Diss Town FC's annual meeting was held at Brewers Green Lane on Tuesday.
Chairman Des Tebble welcomed members and reported that it was disappointing not to gain promotion - with the last four home games being lost cited as a major reason.
The club had changed manager just prior to the end of the season and under Rob Taylor it was hoped that promotion will be gained at the end of the 2008/09 season.
He thanked all of the sponsors for their support especially Woodys, Bodo Limited and J A Collins Electrical.

He thanked the supporters for their continued high level of support which meant that the club had the second highest average crowd in the division.
