Vil­lagers move up the league ta­ble

Bray People - - SPORT -

BARRY MER­NAGH bagged a brace on Fri­day night dur­ing Rath­new AFC's 4-1 vic­tory over Su­gar­loaf to help his side climb out of the Premier Divi­sion rel­e­ga­tion zone.

The Vil­lagers have leapt from ninth place up to sev­enth spot thanks to their sec­ond league suc­cess of the sea­son. Jody Mer­ri­gan and Colin Jame­son were also on tar­get for the Sham­rock Park out­fit.

Also dur­ing the week, St. Peter's Bhoys and En­niskerry YC picked up a point apiece af­ter play­ing out a 1-1 draw last Wed­nes­day evening.

For­mer Bray Wan­der­ers man Alan King had given the Youth Club the lead just be­fore the half-time break with a won­der­ful free-kick but Shane Byrne - on his re­turn from in­jury for the Saints - earned his side a share of the spoils with a goal early in the sec­ond pe­riod.
