The Byron Bay second grade cricketers collected a win playing away against Murwillumbah at Rabjones Oval.

Byron’s new recruit Drew Kimmorley (1/32) struck in his first over and from there it was a steady procession of batters as the home side struggled to get momentum in the damp conditions.

First change bowlers Toby Schott (4/11) and Levi Shouldice (3/20) showed their experience while Brady Furhmann (1/20) and George Worthington (1/21) both chimed in.

Murwillumbah were all out for 105 off 26 overs.

Byron batsmen took over and passed the total in 26 overs from their allotted 40.

Opener Owen Dellian was unbeaten on 53 at the end of the match.

The other not out bat was Mitch Loane on 25. Darren Wright hit up a quick-fire 17 runs off five shots opening with Owen, while Jason Trisley made his debut and scored eight runs.

Byron Bay were last year’s joint premiers.

The side travels to Lenox Head’s home ground in Meegan Crescent this Saturday. 

The season for the Byron Bay third grade side commences this weekend with a match away against Alstonville.

The sponsors for Byron’s two senior sides, The Cellars and L J Hooker Byron Bay, are back onboard this year.
