Bay cements top spot
Byron Bay Soccer Club’s youth players have been making their mark on the Football Far North Coast Summer Youth League competition.
A 3-1 win over Richmond Rovers last Friday night has cemented The Bay’s position at the top of the table.
The squad has really come together under the coaching of Jonathon Pierce, stringing together a run of solid and consistent performances that has seen them emerge as front-runners in the competition.
With teams from as far away as Maclean and Tweed, the competition showcases the best young talent our region has to offer and gives players the opportunity to gain experience and create a pathway into the senior ranks.
The club’s policy of developing youth players is certainly paying dividends, with a pool of talented and committed 15-20 year olds vying for positions in the team.
With only three rounds left to play, tomorrow night’s match against second-placed Tweed Valley Kings promises to be lively and entertaining and could be a decisive game in determining who takes top honours.
Kick-off is 7pm at the Byron Bay Recreation Grounds.
