Mullum league juniors win premiership

The undefeated Giants U/10s with coach.

The Mullumbimby Giants Junior Rugby League finished a good year on a high note when the U/10s won the grandfinal on the weekend.

The team was undefeated throughout the year, taking out the minor premiership, so the win was icing on the cake.

Coach Damon (DJ) Scott has led most of the team since they started playing together as U/7s. It’s a family affair for DJ, coaching his son and two nephews. His sister Chelsea is team manager. The Club is extremely proud of them and the way they play the game.

The club’s other three competitive sides also made it through to the top-five finals series, with the U/12s narrowly missing out on a spot in Saturday’s grand final. 

Our mini league sides from U/6 to U/9s wrapped up their season a few weeks ago. It is so good to see the kids out there having such a good time week after week.

Darcy Irby, U/9s, was awarded the Keeley Farmer Mini League Player of the Year–Best and Fairest Player.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

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.”
