Snapshots - Diss Town FC

Diss Town vs Dereham Town. Eastern Counties League Premier Division, 18 November 2006, Brewers Green Lane. Score 0-3. Attendance 186
Struggling at the wrong end of the table and having conceded 13 goals in the process of losing their previous four League games, Diss gave home debuts to no fewer than NINE new players for the visit of mid-table Dereham. As one home supporter apologised: “We are usually more noisy than this but we don’t know any of the players!”. However, perhaps it was the home side’s first half display that was to blame, as Dereham (black & white stripes) took advantage of the time allowed by the Diss defence to go in 2-0 ahead at the interval. Diss however, bombarded the Dereham goal in the second period without getting the all-important breakthrough, and were then dealt the classic sucker punch as Dereham stole a third goal on the counter attack near the end.
