U10 Girls All- Leinster Blitz
We are not sure of the final count but around 400 girls plus coaches and parents travelled to Bray on Sunday from as far away as Wexford and Killkenny for an all-Leinster football blitz. The weather wasn't great but that didn't stop a great day of football where teams got to play 5 matches plus some coaching drills.

Our own team found the early games a bit hard going but we got stronger game after game which is testament to their fitness and battling spirt and our best game was the last one against Maynooth. Grainne, her team and the mums from our U10's did a fantastic job on the catering and thanks to all that helped setup and steward on the day.

Euros for Euros
A great day had by all at the club house on Saturday, watching Ireland v Belgium in the euros. Not the result we wanted but at least all the kids enjoyed themselves. 

A special presentation was made to one of our young members, Nathan, for his help over the last few weeks from working in the cake sale to running school blitzes. Nathan received a signed Dublin jersey from the All Ireland finals, thanks to Willie for this wonderful prize.

Match reports

Dublin u-14 Division 5 Hurling League

Pine Forest Gaels 4-3 Bray Emmets 1-2

A depleted U-14 side travelled to Glencullen to play PFG, refixed from the previous Saturday when heavy rain had prevented the game going ahead. Bray opened the scoring with a well struck goal by Rory in the first few minutes, and the game settled into a keen struggle with no further score for the next 20 minutes.

The Bray defence held the skilful, physical PFG side scoreless with stand out performances from Adam and Tadhg, fine displays from Aaron at full back , and Zack at wing back and Jamie and Daniel F at cornerback. At 25 minutes PFG scored 2 goals in quick succession. Cathal and Jack were strong and determined at midfield, aided by Sebastian who dropped back to help contain a very able PFG midfield pairing. Cathal and Sebastian worked especially hard and Cathal won some fine ball in the air.

However Bray struggled to feed ball into their forwards and scoring opportunities were rare despite the best efforts of Rory, and Ben who made his first starting appearance at centre forward. Andrew showed well and won some good ball and Rian and Daniel M worked well in the corners. Cathal added a point from a free, and PFG added one of their own to leave them ahead at halftime on a scoreline of 2-1 to 1-1.

The second half was very competitive but despite the best efforts of Fionn in goal, PFG added two further goals and 2 points to their tally. Emmets made a number of goal chances but were denied by some fine saves from the PFG keeper. Cathal added a further consolation score, but PFG finished worthy winners.

Team: Fionn, Daniel F, Aaron, Jamie, Tadhg, Adam, Zack, Cathal(0-2), Jack, Andrew, Ben, Seb, Rian, Rory(1-0), Daniel M.

Under 14 Camogie : Feile 2016

The U14 Camogie team took part in the National Camogie Féile in Tipperary/Waterford last weekend, 17th-19th June. Bray Emmets were most warmly hosted by Rockwell Rovers, New Inn, South Tipperary. 

On Friday, we had two tight games defeating Moycarkey/Borris (Tipperary) and Castleblaney (Monaghan) in the second contest. Spirits were high Friday evening.

Saturday morning, in what was possibly our pièce de résistance, we accounted for host club, Rockwell Rovers (Tipperary). The dye was cast. Only the elite teams remained.  We faced Drom and Inch (Tipperary), the stomping ground of Séamus Callanan, the premier county's goal-machine.  And their girls were of similar mindset. Despite the grittiest and bravest of Bray displays, we finished on the wrong side of a 3-0 to 1-1 score line. Initial heartbreak, but on fairer reflection the team did themselves and their families very proud. Maith sibh, a chailíní uilig ! Rinne sibh éacht d'Emmet Bhré.
