The Northern Hotel Byron Bay Rams have made a spectacular start to the 2017 Premiership season.

The Rams Premiers and Premier Reserves have played three rounds in just six days and racked up an incredible 27 goals each.

After their demolition of Lismore Workers the previous Sunday (April 30), Byron took on Bangalow in Bangalow on Tuesday night and returned with a convincing win in both grades.

The Rams Reserves won 5–0 and the Premiers 4–0.

Four days later Byron  turned on an even more impressive display against Casino at the Recreation Grounds.

The Rams Reserves scored an unanswered 14 goals and the Premier division won their game 15–0.

The Rams are off to Coffs Harbour this weekend for the regional semifinals, and (hopefully) finals of the FFA Cup.

A note from the editorial team

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.”
