FER­GAL OG

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

Ju­nior hurlers: Well it was with great pride that we watched Alan Hughes (Cap­tain) lift the Don O Gor­man cup in the league play-off against New­cas­tle, thus winning the clubs first adult tro­phy and gain­ing re­venge for the re­cent cham­pi­onship de­feat. The match it­self was as good a game of hurl­ing seen in Wick­low all year and as usual it was al­ways go­ing to be close. Scores were ex­changed be­tween the teams and we were dealt an early blow los­ing Karl Lacey to in­jury. It was tight at the break and in the sec­ond-half New­cas­tle edged in front but then came the score of the game from Andy O’Brien, a piledriver of a free into the net and from this our lads went up a gear with great points from Jim O’Brien and Paddy Fisher. We were re­ally motoring but as usual New­cas­tle never give up and a great save from Thomas Cowan kept us ahead. With the end in sight Rob­bie Ma­son sealed the game with a killer goal and the cup was ours. Credit must go to the team who picked them­selves up af­ter the cham­pi­onship de­feat. Score of the match goes to Andy O’Brien, while cel­e­bra­tion of the match must go to Paddy Fisher (heard you bought all the pa­pers Paddy) and man of the match is a three way split be­tween Andy O’Brien, Paddy O’Brien and Ed­die Kelly. Con­grats to the men­tors Oliver, Joe and Seán (think the phonecall be­fore the game from south Africa was in­spi­ra­tional Joe!!).

Squad: Thomas Cowan, Jim O’Brien, Paddy O’Brien, Alan Hughes, Micheal Con­nors, Jim Con­nors, Frankie Cowan, John Con­nors, Karl Lacey, Paddy Fisher, Barry Cowan, Ge­orge O’Brien, Rob­bie Ma­son, Ed­die Kelly, Andy O’Brien, Martin Hill, Gary O’Neil, Mick Moore­house, Carl Brady, Gary Fitz­patrick, Kevin Cowan.

Thank you: Thanks to any­one who helped out the team on the day and also to those who trav­elled to Ark­low for the game. Thanks also to Der­mot for his kind spon­sor­ship and to the staff of Katie Gal­laghers for their kind hos­pi­tal­ity on the evening of the game.

Well done: Fer­gal Ogs send con­grat­u­la­tions to Katie Tay­lor on re­tain­ing her world ti­tle. Katie is a for­mer player of our club as is her fa­ther Pete. We look for­ward to see­ing you go on to Olympic gold.

Get well: Fer­gal Ogs would like to con­vey our best wishes for a speedy re­cov­ery to lo­cal ref­eree Tucker Dowl­ing, like most peo­ple we were ap­palled at what hap­pened to Tucker and hope he re­cov­ers back to his old self soon.

Wel­come home: We wel­come home Joe Car­roll from South Africa. Joe was out build­ing houses with the Niall Mel­lon Trust as he has done for a num­ber of years. We told Joe we would have a tro­phy for him on his re­turn and as men­tioned such is Joe’s ded­i­ca­tion to the club he phoned the lads be­fore they went out on the pitch to give a team talk!!.
