The Byron Magpies collected two well-earned premierships and almost had a third on grandfinal day for regional AFL, held at Oakes Oval in Lismore in September

The senior men collected their fourth premiership flag on the trot when they beat the Ballina Bombers 12.10.82–8.5.53.

The seniors were not beaten all year across 16 regular-season games and two finals.

The women’s side also capped off a great season, just their second in the competition, with a tight three-point win over Tweed Coast 2.6.18–2.3.15, to take out their first-ever premiership.

The women also dominated the league, dropping just three games across the regular season.

But the club couldn’t make it three from three when the men’s reserve side went down to Ballina 7.12.54–11.6.72.
