Second in the summer league readies MBVFC women for premier division

One of the MBVFC’s young guns on the dribble in the SYL.

After finishing the regular season with grandfinal wins the Mullumbimby-Brunswick Valley Football Club’s top female players contested the Summer Youth League and enjoyed more success

Head coach Jonathan Flantz and assistant coach Lee Scriven combined some of the most talented female footballers from the club’s second division and U/16  squads to contest the SYL.

The combined team was a force to be reckoned with, securing seven convincing wins out of nine exciting games and finishing second place on the ladder.

The girls conceded defeat only once to unstoppable table toppers, Lismore Thistles, coming away 3–0 down after a hard-fought and thrilling game, arguably showcasing some of the best female footballers and skills in the region.

The MBVFC girls are looking forward to a rematch with the Lismore Thistles’ side when they enter the Football Far North Coast Women’s Premier Division  for the first time in 2018!

Join the squad

Jonathan Flantz will be running training sessions with the MBVFC Chincogan Real Estate Women’s Premier Division team at Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm till 7.30pm, commencing on 23 January.

Any players interested in trying out are welcome to come along and join the fun.

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.”
