Byron thirds collect 2nd win of cricket season 

Byron Bay third grade has claimed their second win of the season by beating the Ballina bears playing away at Fripp Oval last Saturday.

The Bears won the toss and after electing to bat were trundled out for 88 runs in their 23rd over.

The damage was done by D Kimmorley (4/16 off three overs) and G Worthington (3/26 off six overs).

In reply Byron fell to 2/7 before T Goodhind steadied with a 27-run knock. L bridle supported with 13, but Worthington got the side to victory scoring 35 n.o.

The win puts the thirds on 21 points and within striking distance of the top four, where Bangalow and Ballina sit on 27 points.

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.”
