Bray Emmets club notes week May 20th

Seamus Lawless 
Seamus achieved his lifelong dream on the morning of Thursday 16th May when he reached the peak of Mount Everest. Tragically, on his descent, Seamus fell and has been missing since.

Our thoughts are with the family of Seamus. Particularly thinking of his wife Pam, who is a former Captain of the Senior Ladies and also Senior Player of the year 2013. Seamus and Pam’s daughter is also member of the Academy.

Please support their fundraising effort as they ask for assistance to gather a team of expert Sherpas to locate and bring Seamus home to Ireland.

u15 Football 
St Pats were the latest challengers to the u15 Footballers unbeaten run and they provided a tough test on a fine Tuesday evening in Old Connaught. With a near full squad, and brimming with confidence after the Bray hurlers had recently gave Pats a trimming we started well. Some fine scores from Luke Doyle and Adam Prunty, as well as two excellently taken goals by Ross Hayden and Andrew Murphy had us in a commanding lead. Pats then hit a purple patch in the middle of the match, as they worked their way back into the game. A contentious penalty awarded to Pats midway through the second half gave them the chance to take the lead. This was well saved by Jack Kearney, unfortunately the rebound was dispatched from a tight angle to the back of the net. This was the first time we had been behind in the match, and the lads reacted very well. With Sean Kenny water-tight at the back, and Finn Tracey dominating in the middle, this provided us with the platform to finish the match strongly. We battled back with some calmly taken points from Finn and Adam, until Luke popped up with an immense goal. This was the knockout blow to St Pats’ hopes, as we closed out on a 3-11 to 2-11 victory. A great test for the team, and great to get the victory at home.

Team: Jack Kearney, Jamie Cunnane, Sean Kenny, Fionn Laffan, Cathal MacMaolain, Fiachra O’Dúnaí, Luke Doyle, Kyle Plunkett, Finn Tracey, Shane Baguley (capt), Conall Butler, Adam Prunty, Ross Hayden, Andrew Murphy, Cian Byrne, Ciaran Kelly, Dara Byrne, Patrick Connor, Jamie Healy, Robbie Murphy, Finn Redmond, James Byrne.
