The kids are Kewell with Harry

Harry-Kewell-IMG_7606Recently players from the Melbourne Heart A-League team were a part of a Skills Clinic held at Oakes Oval Lismore.

One hundred and twenty kids from across the zone were selected to meet and play with the Melbourne Heart players, including football favourite Harry Kewell. Some members of the Byron Bay Football Junior Development Squad were invited.

Pictured with Harry are Beau Taylor-Laird, Ruairi Lagan and Austin Taylor-Laird.

The Kids were extremely happy to meet some of the soccer players they idolise, and the mums were very pleased too. ‘Its lovely that the Melbourne Heart players spent the time with them all’, said mum Fran Taylor. ‘It made them all feel very special’.

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.”
