The ghost in the archives #7

On June 19 thirty years ago came the front-page news that Mullumbimby was to have a levee bank, a decision later reversed, obviously. Councillors made the decision without a public meeting beforehand.

The Cellars Byron Bay third grade were on the wrong side of a massive batting score last Saturday at Williams Reserve in Lennox Head when they had 423 runs put past them, including two centuries.

The century makers for the home team included opener M Tancred (186 runs) and B Neilsen (106 no).

The Byron bowlers toiled on what turned out to be a very hard day. The best went to Gus Staley with his 2/49.

On any other day the Byron side’s reply of 191 all out, and Tim Goodhind’s 72, would have seemed a worthy riposte. But compared to 5/423 it was a big deficit in a 40-over game.

In a scheduling quirk the same sides meet at the same ground this weekend.

The Byron seconds have posted a solid win, easily chasing down the target of 85 runs set by a lacklustre Terranora.

The Byron bowlers took just 29 overs to get through the Lakes team lead by Toby Schott’s 4/15 off seven overs, and George Worthington’s 3/30 of eight overs.

Byron’s opener Owen Delian lead the chase and top scored with 28 no, with M Irwin not far behind on 27 no.

Byron seconds look set for the finals.
