Red Stars take title
A team from the Byron Shire has won the under-10 division of the Gold Coast Beach Soccer Championships played at Kirra.
Comprising players from Mullumbimby and Byron Bay, the Red Stars defeated Runaway Bay 3-2 in the final, with the Red Stars' Riley Buckland named player of the tournament.
The under 12 division was won by the North Coast Strikers team - a combination of Mullumbimby and Lismore players - who won the final convincingly 9-5 against Runaway Bay.
The under 12 team lost just one game in the three-day tournament despite playing against representative players from the Gold Coast.
