The bowlers of Bray are making full use of our short sum­mer.

Mon­day, July 1, brought Bray C a com­fort­able 5-1 home vic­tory against Lerne in Di­vi­sion 4.

Not too far away in Bal­ly­man, Bray D of Di­vi­sion 5 went down 5-1 at scenic Dun Laoghaire Golf Club.

The Bray team had also lost the re­verse fix­ture by the same score ear­lier in the sea­son.

On Wed­nes­day the ladies recorded their sec­ond win in a row - against West­manstown - which lifts them to third from bot­tom in Di­vi­sion 1.

And so the cream rises. The club cham­pi­onships are go­ing full tilt these days. In the mixed triples, Owen Byrne proved that straight bowls are no dis­ad­van­tage to a good skip as his team over­came the chal­lenge of Pat Brett, him­self on top form.

It was a good Thurs­day for the aged. Vets 1 won in Bray against Lerne.

Vets 2 took home 3 points from Black­rock where the green was in su­perb condition in ad­vance of the BLI Cham­pi­onship Fi­nals at the end of the month. John Reynolds, Bryon Dancer and Pat Crin­nion shone on the day.

Vets 3 brought a point back from Trim thanks to the scin­til­lat­ing form of Cap­tain Eoghain Brady.

The last re­main­ing Bray rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the BLI Cham­pi­onships, Nick Howlett, Eoghain Brady, Dave Meaney and Alan Rath made their exit at the quar­ter fi­nal stage in the Six­smith Cup, away to a strong CYM Quar­tet, back­boned by Ir­ish In­ter­na­tional, Gareth Pier­point.

In league Di­vi­sion 1 the lead­ers, CYM, came to town on Satur­day. In a close match it was all square with two ends to go but the vis­i­tors fin­ished the stronger and won 5-2.

Bray’s win­ning skips were Wally Doyle and Tommy Cahill while Pat Brett’s rink lost by only a shot. Mean­while, up on Clon­tarf’s lush sward, Bray B got just a point.

The win­ning rink was O.Byrne/M.Sullivan/J.Dunne/E. Mor­ley(skip).

In the women’s Open cup on Sun­day, Bray went down 75-52 at Crum­lin, with just one rink vic­to­ri­ous for the good guys.

This Wed­nes­day the ladies take on CYM in Failte Park and will be look­ing to avenge an ear­lier de­feat in Terenure.

In Thurs­day’s vet­er­ans matches, Vets 1 will be se­verely tested at Crum­lin, Vets 2 have the day off, and Vets 3 are at home to Santry’s finest, Sport­slink.

In the men’s Di­vi­sion 1 on Satur­day, the gloves will be off when Bray A travel to fel­low strug­glers, Ke­nil­worth. Bray B of Di­vi­sion 2, also near the wrong end of their table, will like­wise be putting on their mean faces for the visit of neigh­bours, Shankill.

Di­vi­sion 4’s Bray C have Mon­day the 15th off but in Di­vi­sion 5 Bray D face the chal­lenge of Rail­way Union’s heavy green. Get those mus­cles ready, lads!

Well done to Jean Kane on win­ning the lotto this week (and be­ing a red-hot bowler these days too!). Re­mem­ber Bray Bowl­ing Club (off Ade­laide Road) is al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers, male or fe­male, young or old.


All our teams will now take a short break.

All SSG, from un­der-8 through to un­der-11s will re­turn with fix­tures on the week­end of Au­gust 10/11.

These age groups will all be re­graded for when we re­turn.

The league will also look at run­ning a cup com­pe­ti­tion for un­der-11s and maybe something sim­i­lar for the un­der-10s.

Un­der-12s are pro­vi­sion­ally back on the week­end of July 20/21 while the un­der-13s will be back on the week­end of July 27/28 (fur­ther de­tails as we get them).

The club are host­ing an FAI Sum­mer Soc­cer Camp this sum­mer.

The dates for the camp are Mon­day to Fri­day, July 15 to 19.

The cost for the camp for the week is €70. There are re­duc­tions for more than one child from the same fam­ily.

The camp is open to boys and girls aged 6-14 years. All par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive a full play­ing kit, football and gear bag. Book on­line to get 20 per cent dis­count at Sports Di­ stores.

All book­ings can be made by log­ging onto www.sum­mer­soc­cer­ or by phone to 1890 653 653.

At the time of go­ing to press it’s look­ing like this camp will be full to ca­pac­ity.

If so, no walk-ons will be al­lowed on the camp.

For fur­ther de­tails ring Vicki @ 087 9972234 or by email to vicki. [email protected] after 6 p.m. The camp will run from 10.30 a.m. un­til 3 p.m. daily.

The New­town­moun­tkennedy Area are host­ing a Com­mu­nity Fun Day for Sun­day, Au­gust 18, where all clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions in the area are in­vited to take part with some form of ac­tiv­ity or event.

We as a club will be or­gan­is­ing something that will in­volve all the kids of the area.

The Fun Day will run from 1 p.m. un­til 5 p.m. in the Com­mu­nity Grounds and there will be something for everyone.

As we are hop­ing to have a Mini World Cup com­pe­ti­tion run­ning around this time, it is hoped that all fi­nals will take place as part of the Fun Day (more de­tails next week).

We have two play­ers from the club celebratin­g their birthdays in the com­ing week and they are Rian Martin from our un­der-8 team and Jack Cough­lan from our un­der-13 team.

Happy birth­day lads from everyone at New­town Ju­niors F.C and have a great day.

On a sad­der note the club ex­tends their sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­ily and friends of Peter (Bruiser) Byrne from Rath­new who sadly passed away last week. May he rest in peace.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on all mat­ters New­town Ju­niors F.C. please con­tact the sec­re­tary at 087 6987653 or by email to hughienola­[email protected] and you can also fol­low the club on our Face­book and Twit­ter pages.
