Byron is well-placed
The First XI went to Cudgen’s Reg Dalton field for the first day of a two-dayer, lost the toss and fielded for 74 overs to get the home team all out for 229.
In reply, Byron Bay was 1/7 at stumps, with a full day’s play this weekend.
Jeewan De Silva took 7/71 off 30 overs to be the standout performance of the day.

The Seconds played their Coastal League fixture at Les Cave Field, Murwillumbah, and won the toss and batted the whole day out to be 9/192 and still have 5 overs to be bowled to them next Saturday by the Cudgen side.
Byron’s first three batters were all under-16s.
However, it was the slightly older GT who top scored with 44, whilst Sammy followed his seven-wicket haul with a fine 40 runs this game.
Oscar (26), Mitch (20 at opener), Stevey D (15 at No 3) were the performers in the junior ranks and Ian chipped in with 13.

Only one match was decided last weekend and that was the Fourth’s one-day loss.
