Diss Town 0 Lowestoft Town 5
Diss completed their pre-season friendly matches with a 5-0 defeat against Ryman League newcomers Lowestoft Town.
Lowestoft gained promotion last season and looked a very good side as they scored four second half goals after a fairly even first half.
The first chance of the match fell to Diss in the 5th minute. A corner from Chris Collins-Reed was headed over by Ben Soanes. Richard Woodrow headed Lowestoft into a 20th minute lead to a cross from Jamie Godbold.
You may also want to watch:
Carl Poppy shot in to make it 2-0 in the 48th minute and Martyn Magee made it three just six minutes later. A 3-0 score would have been a fair reflection of the evening but two late goals inside a minute completed the scoring. Jamie Godbold used his pace to set up Craig Bussens for the fourth goal before Poppy completed the scoring.
Diss team: Matty Hill, Chris Collins-Reed, Stuart Garner, Paul Nicholls, Brendan Foley, Mark Shadrack, Peter Hooks, Ben Soanes, George Watts-Sturrock, Sam Bryant, Jason Hunt.
