The 2013 Premiership winning team for the under 14s – the Ballina Bombers

Story & photos Eve Jeffery

A wonderful day of football was had at the Under 12 and Under 14 Premiership matches at Oakes Oval in Lismore on Sunday.

All the children really put their heart and soul into trying their hardest on the day and it was clear to all spectators that the Northern Rivers Junior AFL has a lot to offer one of the greatest sports ever.

As with all finals, at the end of the day there is a winner and second place, remembering at this end of a long hard season there are no losers, just a better team on the day.

All the clubs involved need to be congratulated on a great year of junior footy and the promotion of this wonderful activity on the north coast.

The Final scores on the day were:
U12s Byron Bay 4-4-28 Def Tweed Coast 2-7-19
U14s Ballina 12-6-78 Def Byron Bay 6-18-54
