Ray wreaked havoc in Se­nior cham­pi­onship

Bray People - - SPORT - RAY NOLAN

AVON­DALE sharp­shooter Ray Nolan has suf­fered a sea­son of mixed for­tunes, capped off by his crown­ing as Se­nior hurler of the year.

On a per­sonal level, Nolan wreaked havoc all year as he found him­self hit­ting the tar­get with bet­ter ac­cu­racy than Robin Hood; outscor­ing none other than Kilkenny's Henry Sh­ef­flin as he did so.

From club point of view though, Nolan may well have been left with a slightly bit­ter taste in his mouth. Hav­ing been ousted from the cham­pi­onship at the semi-fi­nal stage by Gle­nealy, Avon­dale went onto lift Dessie Murphy Cup as con­so­la­tion but Nolan played no part on the day hav­ing been struck down by ill­ness.

The prolific for­ward will no doubt be hop­ing he can help im­prove his club's for­tunes in 2013 and he will have a large say in just how far they can go this term.
