In April, the byron Cellars second grade cricketers won the Coastal League grandfinal against the minor premiers Lennox Head.

Lennox Head were bundled out for 90 runs in the 28th over and the Byron side reeled-in the runs for the loss of four wickets.

‘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 it is a credit to all involved,’ club member Syl Reid said.

The side currently sits on top of the second grade ladder after going through the first half of the summer undefeated.
