The 2018 season kicked off in fine style for Shores United with all three sides winning their opening games of the regular season.

The first division Brown Snakes travelled down to Byron for a match that was always going to be a tough assignment. As expected, Byron came out firing and despite the Snakes having the better of play, found themselves behind twice 1–0 and 2–1.

The boys stuck to the plan and wore Byron down in the second half and when Matt equalised the stage was set.

Five minutes from time the French connection, Loic, raced around four Byron defenders to score an emphatic winner. 

Man of the Match Nugget, who even scored a rare goal! Shores the winner 3–2.

The newly promoted Shores third division team travelled to Nimbin for their crushing encounter.

All were treated to a fantastic display of pass and run as the team put on 12 unanswered goals.

Captain-coach Ben scored four, Dan and Simon netted a pair each, while Caleb and Patrick put away one each.

The Shores v Casino sixth division match at home was much different story.

The sun was blazing as  the two old boy teams exchanged blows. The match was a physical affair with neither team giving ground.

In the end just a little bit more class, control of the ball and two valuable goals from Andy got Shores a good 2–0 win on a good club day.

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.”
