The se­nior ladies made their exit from the DWSL cup last Wed­nes­day night when they lost 3-1 to St Pats with Ni­amh O’Brien net­ting for them.

Af­ter los­ing their first four league games and an­other cup game away to Castle­town the girls are still seek­ing their first vic­tory of the sea­son af­ter six games.

Apart from two heavy de­feats to Cabin­teely and St Colum­bans the girls have ran their other op­po­nents close and with a bit of luck their first win isn’t far away.

Our un­der-17 DDSL team (born 2003) are cur­rently look­ing for play­ers for the up­com­ing 2019/20 sea­son, they also require a goal­keeper.

If you are in­ter­ested in play­ing your foot­ball in the DDSL with our un­der-17s please contact man­ager Jerry Lewins at 086 8943302.

At the time of go­ing to print we’ll be in the mid­dle of the sec­ond week of our an­nual Summer Camp and if week one was any­thing to go by it should be a great oc­ca­sion for every­one in­volved.

Close on 80 kids at­tended the first week and apart from the last day the weather was kind.

We had kids from four years old up to 13 years old and every­one had a great time. I think we wit­nessed a lot of po­ten­tial for the fu­ture on view at the camp with some tal­ented foot­ballers demon­strat­ing their skills.

The Le­in­ster Se­nior Satur­day team have re­sumed pre-sea­son train­ing for the new 2019/20 sea­son, train­ing takes place in the Rocky Road ev­ery Tues­day and Thursday at 7.30pm. All ex­ist­ing, past and new play­ers are welcomed to at­tend.

Any­one in­ter­ested in join­ing the team and can’t make the start of train­ing should contact man­ager BA Franey at 086 3631836.

The club’s weekly ju­nior soc­cer academy con­tin­ues ev­ery Satur­day morn­ing through­out the summer months (weather per­mit­ting) un­der the watch­ful eye of se­nior club coach Johnny Dunne.

The academy takes places on the all weather pitch on the club grounds at White­gates and is open to all kids from the age of three years to eight years.

The academy starts at 11am and fin­ishes at 12. There is no need for regis­tra­tion so you can come along to any week that suits.

Come along and learn the skills of foot­ball while hav­ing fun and en­joy­ment, it’s a great way of meet­ing new friends as you learn the skills as you get pre­pared for the in­tro­duc­tion to par­tic­i­pate in or­gan­ised league foot­ball in the com­ing years.

With the sec­ond half of the sea­son due to start we would like to re­mind mem­bers who have out­stand­ing mem­ber­ship fees that these are due now, you can pay your mem­ber­ship on­line at wick­, to your man­ager or through any com­mit­tee mem­ber, thank you.

An­other week of hec­tic ac­tion on the rink as the sec­ond half of the sea­son pro­gresses nicely.

On Mon­day last our Di­vi­sion 5 team headed to Sandy­mount to take on Rail­way Union and the trans­port boys were in a gen­er­ous mood and Bray left with 5.5 points. Thursday last saw two of our Vets teams in ac­tion with Vets 1 get­ting 1 point at home to Green­hills and Vets 2 get­ting one point away to CYM where Alan Rath mak­ing his Vets 2 de­but skipped his rink im­pres­sively.

Satur­day saw our Di­vi­sion 2 team travel to Dun Laoghaire in a match brought for­ward from Tues­day 23rd July. Bray got 1 point on the day from the quar­tet Christy McEvoy/Bryon Dancer/Gabriel Cahill and Pat Cronin.

The rink led by Paddy Peg­man were most un­lucky los­ing by one shot on the very last end. Di­vi­sion 1 were in cup semi-fi­nal ac­tion on Sun­day last against Dun Laoghaire and un­for­tu­nately the team from the bor­ough proved too strong.

No cup fi­nal suits this year lads. This com­ing week has the ladies at home to Crum­lin to­day( Wed­nes­day).

Vets 1 travel to St. James Gate on Thursday and Vets 2 and 3 are both at home to West­manstown on the same day.

Satur­day 27th sees Di­vi­sion 1 travel to Rath­mines to take on Le­in­ster and Di­vi­sion 2 are at home to Meath.

This game has an 11.00am start in or­der to avoid a clash with the Bray Air Show.

All leagues then take a break un­til Au­gust 6.

Our club com­pe­ti­tions are mak­ing steady progress and Christy McEvoy’s quest for three in a row club cham­pi­onships con­tin­ues with Owen Byrne the lat­est to try and not suc­ceed in knock­ing Christy off his perch.

In the Hand­i­cap Sin­gles Patrick Bros­nan claimed the no­table scalp of Wal­ter Doyle in a big up­set. Is the old or­der about to change!

Fi­nally, con­grats to Gabriel Cahill on win­ning the club lotto for the sec­ond time this sea­son no less.
