Byron Bay’s Second XI endured their first loss of the season to Cudgen and now lie in third place on the Coastal League table.

Despite a great all-round effort from Matt Irwin, who bowled 5/26 off his seven overs and backed this up with 51 runs, the Byron Bay side fell well short of the required total.

Cuden batted first at home on Reg Dalton Oval and knocked up 9/182 with solid runs scored across the top order where H Moase top-scored with 46.

Levi Shouldice also bowled economically for the Byron side returning 1/19 off eight overs.

In reply the Byron batsmen struggled to convert starts. Only Irwin and Toby Schott (19) reached double figures.

Dylan Bailey at just 12 years old made his debut in the Coastal League for Byron and scored four before being run out but featured in a 37-run partnership with Irwin.

Byron reached 128 in 31 overs.

With the loss Byron Bay are in third place on the table with 30 competition points behind Terranora (33 points) and Cudgen (39 points), both of which have a game in hand.


There was better news from the thirds, who collected their first win of the season by beating Mullumbimby Brunswick at home at the Byron Recreation Grounds.

Captain Jason Trisley lead the way with the ball and the bat. He was instrumental in keepng the Mullum Brunswick total to 114 from 37 overs with bowling figures of 5/9 off his five overs.

He backed this up by opening the batting with 44 runs. Tim Goodhind (24)  and L Bridle (24) both supported him as the team reached the total with 20 overs to spare.

The first win for the thirds leaves them even with Mullum Bruns on 14 competition points and above Alstonville Leftovers (13 points), but well behind undefeated competition leaders Tintenbar-East Ballina Fire on 32 points.
