Byron Bay FC’s dream season continues, winning the Football Far North Coast Club Championship and taking six teams through the the Grand Finals. With three wins from the four Grand Finals played so far, the club is definitely on a roll.

After finishing in fourth spot on the pointscore table, the 13s Panthers battle their way to the Grand final but lucked out against Pottsville. The Grade 16 1st Division boys took out the Pointscore Championship, and completed the double with a thrilling 3-2 win over Lismore Thistles in last Saturday’s Grand Final. Our wonderful women’s Wildcats all made the finals series and our fourth Division team not only made the Grand Final, they won! The girls finished their season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Suffolk Park.Read More

With the Northern Hotel Byron Bay Rams’ comfortable lead eroded by a draw and an upset loss in the last two weeks, Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash with Richmond Rovers was billed as the ‘match of the season’.

The Byron Bay Rams took to the Ballina pitch on Saturday with a new sponsor and a new look for 2015. Now backed by the Hotel Great Northern, the Rams once again totally dominated coastal rivals, the Ballina Seahorses in both Premiers and Reserves. While the Reserves didn’t manage to equal the big numbers of their last meeting with Ballina, the 3-2 final score was no indication of the balance of play.Read More
Round 3 of the Football Far North Coast delivered a surprise result at Balina on Sunday, March 15.

Byron Bay’s Under 16’s and Premier squads both scored gratifying wins against their 2014 nemeses in Sunday’s opening round of the Anzac Cup.
The 16s met the young guns from Summer Youth League winners, Lennox Head, in a fast-moving and entertaining clash at the windy Ewingsdale grounds.
Battling a strong headwind, the Byron boys looked to have the better of it in the first half, but strong counter attacks earned their southern neighbours an early goal before half time.Read More
Summer Youth League Round 8 Byron V Thistles clashes are often tough, close fought battles. Friday night’s Summer Youth League clash between Byron’s SAE-Qantm boys and the young Lismore squad was no exception.Read More
Summer Youth League Round 7 With round 7 of the Summer Youth League coinciding with the start of ‘Schoolies’, both the SAE-Qantm Byron Bay squad and Lismore Workers took to the pitch with skeleton crews.
The young Rams were also missing some of their older and more experienced players and while only fielding eleven, the Workers team was an older and much more experienced unit that any the Byron boys have faced so far.
Young Rams’ striker, Adam Budd, put Byron on the scoreboard in the opening minutes with a deft tap into the bottom corner.
The early goal spurred Workers into action, however, and their dominance increased throughout the game. Byron’s depleted midfield and defence struggled to contain the Workers attack. Byron managed many powerful counter attacks, but couldn’t break the Workers back line.
Byron Captain and mentor, Ben Ahern, penalised repeatedly for his tough tackling style, was eventually ordered from the field after receiving his second yellow card.
Already outgunned, the 10-man Rams team did their best to hold back the red tide but age, experience and numbers were against them. The final whistle blew on a 5-1 scoreline despite a valiant effort from the Rams against a polished display from Lismore Workers.
Round 8 sees The Rams at home against traditional rival, Lismore Thistles. Round 7 upsets have seen Richmond Rovers and Bangalow bump Byron and Thistles out of their equal second spot so this weeks match will see them battling for 4th spot on the ladder.
Be at the Ewingsdale ground for a 7pm kick-off and cheer our lads on.
