Men’s premier league football fans are in for a big game as Bangalow and Byron Bay are set to play for the premiership this Saturday.
The Byron Bay side made a big comeback in their semi-final against South Lismore last weekend to make it into the grand final.
Playing at home Byron Bay was down 2–0 at half-time before pushing on to win the game with three unanswered goals in the second half.
Byron Bay and Bangalow have swapped first place on the competition ladder throughout the year.
Byron Bay’s championship side has also made it the grand final this weekend, where they will play Richmond Rovers.
In other results the Byron Bay fifth-grade side won their premiership after winning a penalty shootout 4–2 over South Lismore, after the game was drawn 1–1 after extra time.
It was an especially sweet win for Wayne ‘Groover’ Procter who has waited over 60 years to win a grand final.
It’s also a big weekend for Lennox Head whose women’s teams will contest both the premier league and the second grade grand finals against Alstonville and Dunoon United, respectively.
In the August 30 edition it was stated that the U/7s Shores United Crocs won a grand final. U/7s don’t play grand finals. It was, rather, their final game for the year.
