Alstonville FC has claimed the Tursa & Employment Female Summer Youth League title for the second consecutive year after a thrilling match against Lismore Thistles SC last Friday night (6th December). Villa and Thistles went into the final round equal on points and a second half goal to Alstonville proved to be the only goal in the match and enough to give the Andy Brown coached side the Summer Youth League title for 2019. Despite only four teams nominating for the female competition this year, games were played in good spirits as Alstonville FC, Byron Bay FC, Goonellabah FC and Lismore Thistles SC, led the way for female football post season. Every reasonable effort will be made to continue the opportunities for female football, with the Tursa Employment & Training Summer Youth League being an important component of football activities each year.
Byron Bay FC are celebrating claiming yet another title, as the Chris Layland coached team won the Male Summer Youth League trophy by way of a superior goals scored in the competition, by a close 3 goals advantage over South Lismore FC after both teams finished equal on 23 points. Ten teams contested the male competition this year and although the Rams and Celtics finished ahead of all other teams, the football that was played was exciting and demonstrated the purpose of the Summer Youth League.
Football is now officially now in recess until February 2020, when registrations open and we anticipate another big season. Football Far North Coast again extends its appreciation to Tursa Employment & Training, that has again confirmed its sponsorship will extend into next year.
