It was an­other very busy week on the bowl­ing front with Di­vi­sion 4 record­ing an ex­cel­lent six points to nil vic­tory at home to Lerne where Ai­dan Galvin gave an out­stand­ing dis­play.

The ladies were next up and play­ing away to Sk­er­ries and they came home with six points from a rink that is al­ways dif­fi­cult to do well on.

Vets 2 were at home to Crum­lin and got 3.5 points out of 4 to main­tain their top of the ta­ble po­si­tion. Tommy Mur­phy got in with the very last bowl to level mat­ters on his rink and se­cure the 0.5 point which could be very valu­able come Septem­ber.

Di­vi­sion 1 played at home to Dun­bar­ton, the cup hold­ers in the Ir­ish Se­nior Cup, and re­ally put it up to them be­fore be­ing over­taken in the last few ends. The hold­ers left Bray hav­ing sur­vived a mighty fright.

The Di­vi­sion 2 team made the long haul to Col­eraine in Derry where the op­po­si­tion were too strong for the Bray lads. Never the less John Dunne, Bob Neil­son, Ed­die Kelly and Robert Mac Clancy kept the Bray flag fly­ing by draw­ing their rink.


The Satur­day team suf­fered a set­back in the ti­tle race on Mon­day when they lost 5-3 away to Pe­ga­sus/St James Ath­letic. Rovers led 1-0 but then fell 3-1 be­hind.

They bat­tled back to draw level at 3-3 but were then hit with two counter at­tacks when they piled for­ward in search of a win­ner to lose out on a 5-3 score line.

Greg Dunne, Ciaran McGet­ti­gan and Conor Tobin scored their goals on the night.

On Thurs­day night the lads ex­ited from the Tom Car­roll cup when they lost out in ex­tra time to Lif­fey Wan­der­ers, with the game tied at 1-1 af­ter 90 min­utes it was on to ex­tra time.

In a tight tense af­fair it looked like we were head­ing for a penalty shootout. Cru­elly the Dublin side scored what proved to be the win­ner in the dy­ing sec­onds, on the night Dave Rowan net­ted for Rovers.

Satur­day saw the lads gain three points with­out kick­ing a ball due to their op­po­nents, Verona, be­ing un­able to field a team.

Ju­nior mid­week ac­tion started on Tues­day night with the Un­der-13Bs los­ing a seven-goal thriller away to Cool­boy. Noah Sheri­dan, David Lally and Scott Bushe all scored one apiece in a 4-3 de­feat. The Un­der-14As de­feated Cool­boy Rangers 3-1 at the White­gates, Dy­lan Ka­vanagh hit his 13th of the sea­son, Cian Ward and Paul Marah were the other scor­ers on the night.

Our Un­der-15s recorded a good 5-1 win over Aughrim, Nathan Wynne and Chris Mabuza fired in a brace each with David McNabb get­ting one.

Wed­nes­day night saw the Un­der-12As go down 3-2 away to Wolfe Tone in a game they should have got some­thing from.

Cousins Tom and Mark Hodgkin­son scored the goals to give them eight and six re­spec­tively for the sea­son.

Our all girls team, the Un­der-12Cs, earned an ex­cel­lent point against Ark­low Town. Af­ter fall­ing a goal be­hind, the girls showed their bat­tling qual­i­ties to fight back with an equaliser from the im­pres­sive Molly Sweeney, her third of the sea­son.

The girls put in a great shift with all 15 play­ers play­ing their part.

The Un­der-16As kept their dream of a tre­ble alive when they com­pre­hen­sively de­feated St An­thony’s 7-1 to book their place in the shield fi­nal.

On the night there was a brace a piece for Luca Ram­per­saud, Stu­art Cox and James Lang, the game also saw a first of the sea­son for Adam Cud­dihy. Thurs­day’s ac­tion saw the Un­der-12Bs suf­fer a set­back in the shield when they lost 2-1 away to Ash­ford Rovers. Alex Byrne scored his first goal of the sea­son for the Un­der-12Bs.

The Un­der-14Bs have one foot in their shield fi­nal af­ter a 5-0 vic­tory over Ash­ford Rovers. Thomas O’Neill smashed home four goals to bring his tally to an in­cred­i­ble 41 for the sea­son. Tom O’Shea now has 19n af­ter he scored a sin­gle in what was a good team per­for­mance.

Ju­nior ac­tion on Satur­day saw the Un­der-11 greens lose 5-2 at home to St An­thony’s in their last group shield match. This re­sult means the lads must now sit back and wait to see if re­sults go their way to help them make the fi­nal. Louis Mal­com­son and Sam Christie scored their goals.

The Un­der-12As went down 6-2 to a very good Ark­low Town side, the lads came up against a team very much in form, on the day Conor Hunter scored his first shield goal to bring his tally to 19 for the sea­son while Tier­nan O’Brien also nabbed his first shield goal for his sec­ond of the sea­son.

The Un­der-13Cs lost 7-0 to shield favourites Round­wood, the lads bat­tled through out but noth­ing went for them on the day. They gave it their all but found the phys­i­cally big­ger Round­wood team too strong on the day.

Our Un­der-14Bs de­feated Grey­stones United 4-1 in the White­gates, what this re­sult means is they now re­quire one point from three games to book their spot in the Di­vi­sion 2 Shield fi­nal. They are now un­beaten in 11 shield games and look very much on course for a place in the fi­nal.

Daniel Mur­phy hit a brace to make it 12 for the sea­son, Thomas O’Neill and Tom O’Shea scored one a piece in an­other good all round team per­for­mance.

Goal­keeper Joe O’Shea and his de­fen­sive four must take a lot of credit for their re­cent great run.

On Sun­day our Un­der-11 White team went down 4-3 to Wolfe Tone, Ben Bowen, Aran Ca­vanagh and Mikey Nolan scored their goals in a great all round team per­for­mance.

The Un­der-13As lost 3-1 away to Round­wood, Sam Brown nabbed his 23rd of the sea­son.

This re­sult means the lads now re­quire one win from their last three games to make the fi­nal. The Un­der-15s lost nar­rowly to ta­ble top­pers Ash­ford Rovers by two goals to one. Nathan Wynne put the Rovers of Wick­low in front but Ash­ford fought back to run out 2-1 win­ners.

Grey­stones Un­der-11 v Avon­more Un­der-11s – Un­der-11s beat Grey­stones 1-0 yes­ter­day in a hard fought game. Af­ter some very poor de­ci­sions, we lost two play­ers to in­juries in the last five min­utes and the team were very un­for­tu­nate not to come away with at least an­other three goals.

Well done to all the play­ers on the day who played out of their skin. Scorer was Kelvin Browne with a beauty of a goal.

We play Aughim at home next week­end.

Avon­more Un­der-10s v St. An­thony’s Un­der-10s - Avon­more Un­der-10s Yel­low wel­comed St. An­thony’s to Tul­ly­lusk yes­ter­day on a beau­ti­ful Satur­day morn­ing for a game of soc­cer.

With one of our main play­ers out with a bro­ken el­bow, we were down to nine men.

Through­out the year, this team has played some great foot­ball, but from our goal­keeper in Os­car to our for­ward in Calem, this was with­out doubt the best type of foot­ball we have played all year.

With St An­thony’s keep­ing us on our toes! Any­one on the Avon­more side­line with un­der­stand that one, we to­tally dom­i­nated play in all ar­eas of the pitch. Our pass­ing, touches and shoot­ing were ex­cel­lent.

Hav­ing said all that we lapsed con­cen­tra­tion at times and this is when we leaked the goals.

The St An­thony’s goal-keep­ing skills def­i­nitely kept them in the game as he ab­sorbed a huge amount of pres­sure from us, espe­cially in the last 15 to 20 min­utes. We may have lost the goal tally but we were def­i­nitely win­ners when it came to the foot­ball. Goalscor­ers: Calem Nan­gle, Ethan Tarmey, and Mark O’Reilly.

Pool­ing their tal­ents - Win­ners of the South East Pool League First Di­vi­sion Cup were the Parkview House team from Shil­le­lagh. Pic­tured are: Nicky Lyons, Ea­mon Mur­phy, Sean Car­roll, team cap­tain Johnny Lyons, Dar­ragh Breen and Jim Cousins.
