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.

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.”
