Roy of the Rovers stuff


Les Garnier 2, Bressingham Flyers 3

With the match all square at 2-2 and with the scores at 12-12 in the very last game, Les threw the very last boule of the very last end, to win the very last point which gave us the win, which kept us up!  Not only that but we could finish the season in 4th place if other results go our way (will soon find out).  I think this may have been our only away win all season!

Earlier, I rescued a baby frog and a large beetle from the terrain.  There was also a floodlight failure which added to the drama.  As usual, the Garnier team supplied us with a great food selection after the match.




Rumours are going round that next year, players will be drawn out at random to make up the teams and that another seven tons of shingle be put down.  One other person suggested we play in 'skins' as a cost cutting exercise.  Looking forward to the AGM :).

Still all to play for


Diss Flyers 3, Norwich Blue 2



An entertaining match played in the right spirit.  This win sets up an interesting finale as either Gauloises, Norwich Diamonds or ourselves will accompany The Hunters (who had to pull out) in the lowest tier next season.  Points difference may even come into play.

Waveney take the honours


Diss Waveney 3, Diss Flyers 2

Winning two out of three pairs games wasn't enough to turn this match around for Flyers.

Put simply, two wins from our last two matches will keep us up.  One win might also be enough but would depend on results elsewhere.

Next up is Norwich Blue at home, then Les Garnier away.

Diss Flyers 4, Norwich Diamonds 1


After two successive 5-0 defeats, this victory came as some relief.  All eight players won a game - a good effort all round..  No match next week.

Catch up...


After the unfortunate withdrawal of The Hunters and subsequently, with all their matches being declared void (you can read the full story here... http://www.ncpa.webeden.co.uk/), Diss Flyers shot up a few places. However, losing heavily to Sprowston last Thursday has dumped us back where we started.  Still time to amend things though.

President's Cup - Diss Waveney v Diss Flyers


This was won by Flyers 3-2 (standard format).  Team was Les, Diane, Russ, Pat, Liz, Mick.  Sally (newbie) replaced Russ in the pairs.

Old news - Gauloises 3, Diss Flyers 2.  Darren and Luke were so close to taking the points in the deciding game.  Came down to a measure in the end (the bigger boules won!).

We play at Les Garnier this Thursday in the last eight of the Plate.

Suffolk Coastal League - we will qualify for the knock out stage if we beat Framsden on Sunday.  A draw might not be good enough.

Diss Flyers 2, The Hunters 3 (58-47)


A disappointing end in both triples was soon followed with a couple of good wins in the pairs.  In the remaining game, Liz and Mick seemed to be in command but were out-gunned in the final moments.

We won on aggregate, all reached double figures in all the games without gaining any points.  On the plus side, it was a pleasant evening and the match was played in good spirit.



No match next week.
