JUNIOR CRICKET: It was a hard fought season in all age groups across the Clarence Valley Junior Cricket Association in 2015/16 and it all came to a head in last week's grand finals.

In Under 12s, Brothers got the win in a close grand final against Coutts Crossing. It was a great season and finish for the side coached by sisters Naomi and Grace McDonald.

In Under 14s, South Services were eventually victorious in a see-sawing contest that lasted into the final over of play.

Westlawn led by an unbeaten 53* from Hayden Ensbey just missed out on chasing down the South Services total of 9-162, falling seven runs short.

It was a top effort from South's Matthew Dalton who retired not out on 51 before taking 2 for 20 with the ball.

In Under 16s, Coutts Crossing got a comprehensive victory over Westlawn in the final after Coutts scored 5-153 off their 40 overs thanks to an Eli Fahey 80*.

Westlawn tried valiantly but a top notch bowling effort from Riley Chevalley (3-5) and Declan Ensby (3-7) saw Westlawn fall 40 runs shy of the target.

The CRJCA presentation night is happening tonight at the GDSC from 5.30pm.

All players and supporters are welcome to attend to celebrate a great season.
