U8 Girls Football

11 April, 2015

Bray Emmets Vs  Kilmacud Crokes After the postponement of a blitz in Wicklow we got an invite to play in Kilmacud. Despite the threatening weather, over 60 girls were raring to go and we managed to get two matches in before it got too wet and cold. This was the first wet match the girls have ever played and they managed the conditions very well. We came from behind in the first game to salvage a draw and played really well in the second to win it. Goals from Ciara, Kate S and Kimberly were backed up by great defence from the rest of the team.  Team: Aisling O'Keefe, Ciara , Ciara Lambe, Grace Kennedy, Kate Butler, Kate Slattery, Katie Curran, Kimberly Kennedy, Naoise Sweeney McMaster, Niamh Canavan, Olivia Gibson, Orla Fitzsimons, Ruby Hannon.  Banisteoir:  Alan kennedy  ...

U8 hurlers on the road

10 March, 2012

On the bright spring morning of Saturday March 10th, Bray Emmets under-8 hurlers travelled to Frank Kelly Park in Rockbrook to play Wanderers in their second Dublin hurling league. The match started at 11am and was played over four 15-minute quarters. Bray had a great start with their forwards going into attack straight away, resulting in a couple of early goals. Jack and Adam played really well in midfield and passed the ball up to the forwards with ease. The whole team worked really well together with great determination and focus, making it a very exciting match for both coaches and spectators alike. Rory, Kayleigh and Joshua worked brilliantly together in providing a strong defence for Bray. Bray put a lot of pressure on the Wanderers defence, who in turn worked consistently hard to keep the sliotar out of the back of their net. Cian and Luke gave some fantastic long shots up the field towards James and Shane, who were more than able to use their skills in effectively directing the sliotar into the net. It was a wonderful team performance overall -well done everyone! Shane Baguley, Kayleigh Broderick, Joshua Butler, James Byrne, Rory Farrell, Luke Jakob, Jack Kearney, Cian Longmore, Adam Prunty. ...

U8’s host St Judes

25 February, 2012

Under 8 Hurling - Dublin League Bray Emmet's Under 8 hurlers hosted St Judes (Rathfarnham) in Emmet Park Old Connaught Ave for our first Dublin Hurling League match. The game started at 10:00 sharp and was played over four 15 minute quarters. The game began as a very evenly matched affair with both teams showing great discipline regarding holding their positions well and putting up very solid defense. As the game progressed Bray started to move the ball very quickly up to the forwards who knew exactly what to do with it - particularly Cian Longmore who scored a hat trick of goals including a screamer from 20 meters out.Luke Jakob's ability to steal the ball move it quickly to the forwards made life very difficult for St Jude's who found it increasingly difficult to get out of their own half with the ball as the game progressed. Jack and Adam took some heavy knocks from their opposite numbers but kept their cool and let their hurling do the talking. Sean and Shane both used their speed and skill to great advantage which combined very effectively with an absolute lack of fear in taking on taking on physically larger opponents who found it difficult to mark or even catch the Bray duo. James, Nathan and Rory worked the mid field very effectively to disrupt the flow between the St Jude's backs and forwards, they did very well to draw the St Jude's defenders up while pumping ball up to the forwards who used both the space created and fast supply of ball to devastating effect! Overall a fantastic team performance and a great start to the Dublin League. Emmet Bhré - Under 8: James Byrne, Adam Prunty, Jack Kearney, Cian Longmore, Rory Farrell, Nathan Hunter. Luke Jakob, Sean Byrne, Shane Baugley ...
