Bray Bowling News - Wed 09/06/23

No rest for the wicked this week as we had wall-to-wall bowls and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. Division 4 kicked the week off on Monday with a trip to Westmanstown and they brought home 3 points following a drawn match. On Tuesday our Division 1 (Saturday) team travelled to Crumlin to take on the star-studded Crumlin team who proved their class with a comprehensive win. Our Division 2 Wednesday team continued their impressive start to the season with a good home win against CYM to remain top of the table. Also on Wednesday our Division 6 team travelled to North Kildare and returned victorious and now top the table. All 4 Vets teams saw action on Thursday with Vets 1 taking three points off Clontarf at home, Vets 2 tasted defeat away to Westmanstown, Vets 3 hit the N4 to North Kildare and in a tight match took all 4 points on offer. Finally, Vets 4 took 3 points back from Crumlin winning the overall by one shot. Saturday saw our 1 rink Division 6 team record a good win at home to Blackrock.

On the same day our Division 1(Saturday) team were in IBA Cup action away to Donaghadee from Co. Down. An early morning convoy left Bray with the Kris Kristofferson hit playing in the background (ie that is " Convoy " for the uninitiated!!) to travel to the land of the Mourne's. For the first time in this competition Bray had ladies playing. Well done to Terri McKeon and Bernie Tracey. The locals whose green is located just metres from the sea proved too strong on the day. Bray would like to record their appreciation to Donaghadee for the wonderful hospitality proved before and after the game. It was wonderful to see so many young bowlers on the home team and also the performance of Cameron Gaw the British Isles Under-25 champion and Irish International was a joy to behold.

This Wednesday sees our Division 2 (Wednesday) travel to take on Westmanstown. On the same night Division 6 travel to Drumcondra to take on Ierne. Thursday 8th June sees Vets 1 at home to Westmanstown, Vets 2 travel to North Co. Dublin to take on Skerries, Vets 3 are at home to near neighbours Greystones and Vets 4 are at home to Shankill. On Saturday 9th June is our Division 1 (Saturday) are at home to CYM 'A' and Division 2 (Saturday) are away to Crumlin in a top of the table clash. Finally, next Monday our Division 4 crew are at home to Bank of Ireland. The ILBA Championships are still in full swing with notable performances coming from Liam Collins, John Gilliland and Ciaran O'Brien. To all those teams currently topping their respective leagues - remember, it is a marathon and not a sprint !!
