BRAY BOWLS

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

Lots of ac­tion to re­port on this week with a mixed bag of re­sults.

Last Mon­day saw Di­vi­sion 4 travel out to Aer Lin­gus and the bowlers rep­re­sent­ing the na­tional air­line proved too strong for Bray and we re­turned point­less.

Also on Mon­day night our Di­vi­sion 5 team were at home to Black­rock and in a top class per­for­mance they got 5.5 points.

Wed­nes­day saw the ladies make the trip to Ke­nil­worth and they brought home one point.

The ladies are hav­ing a tough sea­son and need an in­put of new blood quickly.

Thurs­day saw the 3 Vets teams all play­ing with Vets 1 los­ing at home to CYM and they have slipped out of sec­ond place.

Vets 2 made the long trip to Sk­er­ries by the sea and the north­siders proved un­playable on their own patch. The lads now need favours in or­der to fin­ish sec­ond.

The only good cheer came from Vets 3 who trav­elled to Aer Lin­gus and they took home all four points to clinch sec­ond place and still have an out­side chance of over­all league hon­ours.

Satur­day had Di­vi­sion 1 at home to Rail­way Union where they got five points and with one game to go they sit com­fort­ably in mid table.

Di­vi­sion 2 trav­elled to West­manstown with both John Cor­bett and Colm Clif­ford mak­ing their Di­vi­sion 2 de­but.

The team got one point which could be in­valu­able come early Septem­ber.

Di­vi­sion 5 con­cluded their pro­gramme for 2019 with an away fix­ture in Kil­cock against North Kil­dare. They gar­nered one point.

They wish to thank North Kil­dare for the won­der­ful hos­pi­tal­ity on the day.

On Sun­day Bray hosted the Open Cup Fi­nal be­tween CYM and Dun Laoghi­aire with vic­tory go­ing to CYM.

Thanks to all those Bray mem­bers too nu­mer­ous to men­tion who put in the time and ef­fort to have the rink and sur­rounds look­ing in im­mac­u­late con­di­tion for the oc­ca­sion.

This week (Wed­nes­day) sees the ladies at home to Le­in­ster.

Thurs­day has Vets 1 away to Dun Laoghaire who are bask­ing in league suc­cess, Vets 2 and 3 at at home to Dun Laoghaire.

Vets 2 need a white­wash and favours from Black­rock to have any hope of a medal.

Vets 3 are guar­an­teed at least sec­ond place and need Meath to slip up at home to have any chance of snatch­ing first place.

Both Di­vi­sions 1 and 2 are idle this week­end and in fact Di­vi­sion 1 are not in ac­tion again un­til 14th Septem­ber.

The end of sea­son re­port is cur­rently be­ing com­piled and we will soon see who should have done bet­ter and who needs im­prove­ment.

Fi­nally Roddy O’Leary won the lotto this week.
