Bangalow has double bowlers

Eve Jeffery

Bangalow Public School has been bowled over by the talent of two of its year-six students. Sebastian Gleeson-Power (left) and Lachlan Sproul (right) have both been selected to represent the north coast region in cricket in an upcoming event.

The boys, who are both talented bowlers, have impressive stats behind them – Sebastian’s best-ever bowling day produced five wickets in a maiden over at a club match and Lachlan once bowled four for seven off eight overs at the North Coast Trials.

The local lads will leave this weekend with their families to travel to Armidale. The boys will face teams from across NSW when they take part in the upcoming Primary Schools Sports Association (PSSA) State Cricket Carnival.

The boys, who both currently play for the Bangalow Cricket Club as their home team, have had two training sessions in Lismore with the other members of the squad, and will compete in the PSSA carnival in Armidale next week.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
