Matt Irwin on his way to a 50 against Lennox Head in the semifinal of the 2017/18 Coastal League

The Byron Bay L J Hooker second grade XI became joint major premiers of the 2017/18 Coastal League Competition, sharing this honour with Cudgen cricket club after a rain–affected grandfinal played at Norm Rabjones Oval in Murwillumbah last Saturday.

Joint premiers were declared as the game could not go on due to rain making the ground unplayable.

The game got underway with the Byron side winning the toss and sending Cudgen in to bat.

They were 2/86 in the 17th over when a torrential downpour sealed the fate of the day.

Martie Irwin and Matt Irwin were our wicket-takers and Craig Wilson hit a quick 66 for Cudgen.

Not the best way to finish off a season but, as this is a combined Tweed and Ballina District competition, it is sort of fitting that a team from each district shared the spoils.

Thanks to all who put in over the season and to our sponsors and supporters, thanks.
