The U/10 Dolphins are one of two new all-girl teams at the Shores United Soccer Club and they had their first game on the weekend.

The Dolphins took on the U/11 Kyogle Cowgirls and both teams played very well and had lots of fun, coach Teja Clare said.

‘We were proud of how our girls worked together, under the pressure of playing with no subs. A demanding but exciting first game,’ she said.

‘Thank you to the lovely Kyogle Cowgirl who donned a bib and subbed for us to give a couple of our girls a quick rest. Great sporting generosity from her’, she said.

The club is very happy to be supporting girls in the sport to have an option to play in an all-girl team. 

‘We look forward to offering additional all girls teams across more age grades next season,’ Teja said.

Earlier this year Teja was named as the 2018 Female Football Week Coach of the Year Award.

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.”
