10 days of fab food

Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival returns for its second iteration and kicks off this Friday, running until Sunday, May 26 – and is there a lot to pack in.

Jarvis van Gramberg gets past his Goonellabah opponent on the weekend.

Shores United won through to the ANZAC CUP B final after a clinical display at home playing Goonellabah last Sunday.

After a tough 1–1 draw to Dunoon the week before, the Shores boys needed to win.

They did this in style and really never looked in doubt securing a 4–1 win.

But for a few lapses, Shores controlled the game from the opening whistle.

Some excellent runs down the wing by Lewis and great backing up by Bruno set an ominous tone for what was to come.

Capitan/coach Benny set the standard with two goals and very nearly the hat trick.

Midfield and backs played well all day, with Bruno mesmerising everyone.

In the other semifinal the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC were much too strong for Eureka, crushing them 9–2 at New Brighton.

The unbeaten Valleys look to be the favourites. It all sets up a cracker local derby ANZAC CUP B final with Shores taking on Mullumbimby after Easter.

I wouldn’t miss that one.
