Sports­men unite for ‘African’ fundraiser

Bray People - - News -

CLOSE TO 100 foot­ballers from North Wick­low took part in a six-a-side ‘Africa Shield’ tour­na­ment at Grey­stones Astro Soc­cer Pitches in Charles­land last Satur­day, while a sim­i­lar num­ber of golfers com­peted in a ‘Near­est the Pin’ con­test hosted by Glen of the Downs Golf Club the pre­vi­ous week.

The six-a-side blitz pro­vided an af­ter­noon of sport­ing ex­cite­ment at the Grey­stones Recre­ational Cen­tre, with a keenly con­tested tour­na­ment even­tu­ally be­ing won by a lo­cal ‘Kindlestown Kick­ers’ team led by Wil­lie O’Ha­gan.

The ‘Near­est the Pin’ com­pe­ti­tion at Glen of the Downs Golf Club was won the pre­vi­ous week by Pat Kelly, who went away with the prize of a night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion at the lo­cal Glen­view Ho­tel.

The com­pe­ti­tions and events are set to con­tinue this week also, with up­wards of 50 par­tic­i­pants ex­pected to take part in an aqua aer­o­bics ‘Aquathon’ to be hosted by Bray’s Shore­line Sports and Leisure Cen­tre on Tues­day.
