The Cellars second grade cricketers won the Coastal League grandfinal against the minor premiers Lennox Head last Saturday.

After winning the toss Byron sent Lennox in to bat on a  well-prepared pitch at Rabjones Oval in Murwillumbah.

Lennox Head were bundled out for 90 runs in the 28th over. Levi Shouldice took 4 wickets for 26 runs after Brady Fuhrmann (1/11) and Toby Schott (1/12) removed both the openers with 8 runs on the board.

A brace of wickets by the other two bowlers, George Worthington (2/9) and Lachlan Whiteford (2/29). ably assisted the Bay’s cause with the final four wickets falling for 3 runs.

A great effort in the field set up the win and the bats made it happen in the 17th over, for the loss of 4 wickets.

The Bay’s Mitch Loane finished with 30 n.o. and Matt Irwin (captain) scored 24 runs. This combination was the key to the rapid conclusion of the big event.

Toby Schott (10) and Michael Hughes (6) opened the batting with Lennox  throwing everything at them.

Owen Delian was run-out for 4 runs and Ryan McGuiness was there at the end on 9 n.o.

A splendid result especially after last season’s washed out final which resulted in Byron sharing the major premiers title. This one was earned fair and square and is a credit to all involved.
