Summer Youth League Champions for 2018

December 10th, 2018

Byron Bay and Alstonville have been confirmed as the respective Tursa Employment and Training Male and Female Summer Youth League champions for 2018.

Byron Bay claimed a second consecutive Male Summer Youth League title on Friday night, following a nil all draw against fourth placed Goonellabah. The Male competition was close over the 9 rounds of the competition but come the final round, a draw was all that was required by the Rams to ensure they claimed their fifth Male SYL title overall. Elsewhere, Alstonville and Lismore Thistles had convincing wins to claim second and third place respectively, with Rovers rounding out the top five teams.

In the female competition, Alstonville claimed the title a week earlier than the scheduled final round after a 2-0 win over Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley. The Villa girls were dominant throughout the competition, losing just their second round game that was against the reigning Female SYL champions, Lismore Thistles.

Although Alstonville claimed the trophy early, the competition provided clubs with a good opportunity to blood some up-and-coming female talent and certainly results suggest that the competition was more competitive than the competition ladder may first appear.

Congratulations also go to Alstonville coach Andy Brown and manager Brittney Webster and to Byron Bay coach Chris Layland, for their efforts in guiding their respective teams to the 2018 title.

Football now has a break until registrations open on the 1st of February 2019, with Tursa Employment & Training again being confirmed as the sponsor for the ANZAC Cup, Callan McMillan and Summer Youth League competitions next year.
