The final rounds of the Football Far North Coast Summer youth league saw the SAE-Qantm Rams and the Byron Wildcats going down to strong teams from Lismore Thistles and Alstonville.

The Wildcats girls gave their all through every match of the inaugural female Youth League season, mixing it with a diverse range of young talent and experienced Premier Division players.

Despite having only one win, the girls had a rewarding season and enjoyed some great Friday night football.

A new generation of young Rams also met stiff opposition throughout the boys competition.

Made up largely of Byron’s 2015 grade 16s, the boys led most of their games early on only to lose their lead in the final minutes of each match to their more seasoned opponents.

The 2015 Summer Youth League was a great social event and a terrific development experience for Byron’s young footballers.
