Despite having a bye last weekend the Byron Bay FC premier division women’s team sit on top of the premiership table with an undefeated run of five from five wins.

Alstonville join them at the top of the table with five wins, but have played an extra game.

The Byron Bay women showed early signs of their calibre when they won the A-grade Callan McMillan knock-out competition in April, taking on local rivals Lennox Head and coming away 2-0 winners.

Since then the side has beaten Lismore 2-0 and Asltonville 2-1. The goal they conceded in their last outing is the only oneß∑ scored against them so far in the premiership, while they have managed to net 16.

‘Jimmy Gill has coached superbly. He has the whole team clicking,’ team manager John McKay said. ‘I’m looking forward to a big season,’ John said.
