The young up-and-comers of the SAE-Qantm Byron Bay Summer Youth League squad came into their own in round three of this year’s youth competition.

Coach John Bradbury has given the debutants a great run in key positions this year and the youngsters have risen to the challenge.

With support from veterans Byron Milne, Tane Meek, George Martin and Nathan Burvill, the younger boys really made their mark on Friday’s clash with the Woodburn side.

Adam Budd opened the scoring, tapping in a sharp cut-back from Byron Milne, while Ronan Karup hustled the ball into the net in a goal-mouth skirmish then followed up with a drive from the 18-yard box to take Byron’s goal tally to three. Woodburn managed one goal in reply, but the young Rams were clearly a cut above the visitors.

The 3–1 win takes Byron to third position on the ladder, with some tough matches to come.

This week’s round sees Byron take on Bangalow, in Bangalow, with a 6.30pm kick-off.

The Byron derby always produces entertaining football so be there to support our young chargers.

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.”
