Byron Bay Cricket Club’s first grade side picked up their first win of the season on their new turf pitch last Saturday playing against the Lismore Workers.

The Lismore XI won the toss and choose to bat on the Cavanbah Centre pitch, but were soon in trouble after losing their first wicket with just seven runs on the board.

They were 3/40 before S McLean and H Clacher steadied the innings with a 44 run partnership. But when the later was out LBW on 21, the side fell to 8/96 before being all out for 122.

Levi Shouldice was the architect of the middle order collapse and the pick of the Byron bowlers with 4/22 off 8 overs. M van Balen supported with 2/13 off four overs, including two maidens.

The Byron openers took the score to 62 before M Loane fell for 22 runs, shortly followed by top scorer C Daniels (30).

From there yron had their own collapse by losing five wickets for 29, before A Smith and B Fuhrmann were able to get the side home with two wickets in hand.

S McLean was the pick of the Lismore bowlers with 3/12 off six overs, with strong back up from A MacDonald who bowled 2/15 off eight overs with four maidens.

It was the first win of the season for the local side that has only re-entered first grade this season after an eight year hiatus.

The BBCC second grade side has had two wins on the new turf at Cavanbah centre and sit third place on their competition ladder.
