The Byron Bay Rams second division had a comfortable 4–1 win against Tintenbar to clinch the minor premiership with one game to spare.

Made up of a whole cross- section of the community, with ages ranging from 19 through to 50, the seconds have had a great season, boasting the best defence in the league and winning 14 out of their 17 fixtures so far.

Having struggled with injuries, the boys persevered this season, showing great depth and composure.

The team is now looking forward to the final series.

Lennox Head have to play Goonellabah on Saturday and the Rams will play the winner of that game the following week.

Good luck, Rams.

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.”
