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.
