Suns head south for juniors

Gold-Coast-Suns-8.2.14-EJ-9W6A6179

The combined clubs of the Northern Rivers Junior AFL turned out in force on Saturday for a sign-on full of fun and games with players from the Gold Coast Suns.

The Suns, who are our closest AFL side with their home ground at Metricon Stadium at Carrara, took the opportunity to head south and check out the local talent on show at the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex.

Suns’ player Nathan Bock said he loves the opportunity to watch Gold Coast juniors up close. ‘It’s always great to assist the local clubs and of course meet the future stars of our game’, said Bock. ‘You never know, some of these kids could one day be playing on Metricon Stadium for the Gold Coast Suns.’

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.”
