Ladies Un­der­dogs: Bray Em­mets and Wick­low had a great rep­re­sen­ta­tion on the Na­tional Ladies Un­der­dogs Team which was se­lected fol­low­ing tri­als which were held in mid-sum­mer. 150 play­ers went for­ward for se­lec­tion in July and this was ini­tially whit­tled down to 30. Fol­low­ing al­most weekly ses­sions and one week long train­ing camp, where per­for­mance was con­tin­u­ously mea­sured, the fi­nal squad of 25 was agreed on. This fi­nal squad had two Bray Em­mets play­ers, Aoife Hef­fer­nan and Cather­ine Cor­bett. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both. Cather­ine plays in goal while Aoife is cor­ner-back. Wick­low was also well rep­re­sented with two Grey­stones, two Round­wood and one Bless­ing­ton play­ers. This se­lec­tion went to Lon­don at the week­end to play the the lo­cal Lon­don-Ir­ish Ladies. Lon­don, who are the cur­rent All-Ire­land Ju­nior Cham­pi­ons, again came out on top with the score­line of 1-10 to 0-9. While the Un­der­dogs are very dis­ap­pointed that their six months of ef­fort went un­re­warded, all of Bray Em­mets are very proud of both Aoife and Cather­ine, well done to both.Your ex­pe­ri­ence will be in­valu­able in the fu­ture.

Un­der-12 Girls foot­ball: Bray Em­mets girls U-12 had their last match of the sea­son on Satur­day against Cuala. Bray dom­i­nated from start to fin­ish with some great scores from So­phie Con­nolly and Robyn Gam­mell O’Brien. The de­fence dom­i­nated through­out with su­perb de­fend­ing from Ruby Ste­wart, Amy Barry, Shauna Dou­glas and Eve Cun­nane keep­ing Cualas scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to a min­i­mum. Al­lanah Con­roy and Grace O’Dono­van com­fort­ably won the mid­field bat­tle en­sur­ing a com­pre­hen­sive win to end the 2008 year for the girls. Fi­nal score Bray 5-7, Cuala 0-2.
