Byron Bay FC premier league team lost a home fixture against South Lismore 2–1 last Friday night under lights at the Byron Recreation Grounds.

The result leaves South Lismore in third position on the ladder and bumped Byron Bay from the top spot into second place.

Bangalow are back on top of the ladder with two more regular rounds of competition to play.

‘South Lismore has a strong defence, they are a tough team to get through. The midfield is also very disciplined,’ Byron Bay coach Jeremey Sutton said.

‘We didn’t take our opportunities, plenty of good build up play came apart.

‘They scored two goals late, but we should have put the game away well before that,’ he said.

Byron Bay take on fifth-placed Alstonville this weekend.

The good news is that the team is close to fully fit, with the finals just around the corner.

The Byron Bay FC champions league side had a bye at the weekend and sit in third place on the table. They look set to retain their place in the top four heading into the finals.

In the women’s premier league the reigning premiers Alstonville remain dominant, and are undefeated for the season, and are likely minor premiers for 2023.

They beat Ballina 7–1 last Friday night.

Byron Bay had a win over Lennox Head 2–0, but still sit beneath them on the ladder in third place. Richmond Rovers round out the four, but Maclean are just behind.

Under 12s

The Shores United U/12 mixed side has continued their winning ways and secured the minor premiership undefeated, with only two draws for the season – both against Ballina.

Last weekend they beat Bangalow 2–0.

The side trains twice a week and goalkeeper Oscar has only let in seven goals all season, and three of those were in one game, a 3–3 draw against Ballina.

They take on Ballina in a semifinal this Sunday.
