A double grand final showing was a fitting swan song for Byron Bay Services Club’s retiring premier coach Damon Bell.

Despite gutsy performances from the Rams’ premier division and reserve teams, they both fell short on grand final day in late September.

The reserves lost to the Richmond Rovers 7–6 in a penalty shoot out, while the top team went down 2–1 to South Lismore Celtic.

In a great stint with the Rams, coach Bell has collected four premiership and two championship trophies in the Anzac Cup, as well as taking the Rams to the regional level of the FFA Cup.
