Diss Town completed their Ridgeons Division One season on Saturday with a goal-less draw against Godmanchester, and can now start planning for life back in the Premier Division.
Diss Town 0, Godmanchester Rovers 0
THE match saw only a few chances created and was a typical low-key end-of-season match, played on a warm afternoon with a strong breeze blowing.
It was a chance for the home players to celebrate with their team, as Diss finished third in the table to move back to the Ridgeons Premier Division after a four-year absence.
After the match Stefan Gilding was presented with the Diss Town supporters’ player of the season award.
He has played in a defence which had a remarkable finish to the season.
In the last 11 games just two goals were conceded — both were penalties. In the same period, the 11 games saw 26 goals scored and 26 points gained.
Diss Reserves finished in second place in the Ridgeons Reserve League North, just three points behind defending champions Lowestoft Reserves.
It was a remarkable achievement for the Tangerines after their bottom-place finish last season.
