Bangalow were crowned the 2015 Female SYL Champions.

Respective champions have been crowned in the 2015 Tursa Employment and Training Summer Youth League with Bangalow winning the inaugural Female SYL last Friday evening and Lennox Head retaining their Male title from 2014.

Bangalow continued their dominance of female football in recent years, although met strong competition from the impressive Alstonville and Lismore Workers teams in particular, who show much promise for season 2016. Positive feedback received from all clubs indicates the competition was a success.

The male SYL was the closest ever, with Lennox Head taking the title with a nail biting 1-0 victory over Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley in the final round. The Sharks win gives them a back to back title in the SYL and continues the resurgence of the coastal club in recent years.

The success of the SYL since its introduction in 2008, has been further enhanced by adding a Female tier to the Male competition and FFNC is confident that another successful formula has been found to provide opportunities for both genders.

Football Far North Coast General Manager, Steve Mackney has announced that Tursa Employment and Training will again be the marquee sponsors of the Anzac Cup and Summer Youth League events in 2016. Mackney said, “Tursa is a wonderful supporter of community events and we value their loyal Strategic Partnership with football.” Player registrations for season 2016 commence 1st February and FFNC is confident that it will surpass the 2016 participation numbers that saw almost 7000 players play football locally.

Several modified competitions are also coming to the end of their scheduling, with the popularity of football giving rise to post winter season participation at Dunoon, Mullumbimby, Bangalow and the Southern Cross Football Centre over the past 10 weeks. Hopes are high that player registrations will again surge next year, with female football a real focus to provide more opportunities across the club network.
