U14 Football Final

30 October, 2016

Following the Senior Final curtain raiser the BIG game was played when the Under 14s replayed their final against neighbours An Tochar. Playing with a strong breeze in the first half Bray started slowly and An Tochar took an early lead. Through the hard work of Jack Treacy and Luke & Charlie Dunne in the forwards Bray came into the game with Brian Nesbitt and captain Sam Kearney scoring crucial goals to put Bray in front. It wasn’t one way traffic though with An Tochar through Darragh Fee were causing problems for the Bray backs and only for a timely intervention by Philip Jacob late in the first half An Tochar would have been in for a goal. Buoyed by this let off  Bray finished the half well with the half back line of Art Whittle, Sebastain Coleman and Donal Spaine beginning to dominate and with further excellent scores from Gavin Rochford and Charlie Dunne Bray led by 2.5 to 0.3 at the break. With a big pitch and strong breeze it was unclear if an eight point lead would be enough. However Bray were quickly out of the traps in the second half scoring a goal almost straight from the throw in to give the team a bit of a cushion. Playing into the wind meant the hard running Evan Barry, Ben Robinson and Sam Kearney were on the ball more and with spaces opening up Bray scored a number of goals. An Tochar however kept rallying and with the ever sharp Gordon Brady keeping the scoreboard ticking over for An Tochar Bray were never really pull away. The back line now were under more pressure but the ever reliable Jamie Ryan, Michael McCarthy, Luan Roddy, Tadhg McCarthy and Aaron O’Rourke kept the An Tochar attacks at bay ensuring Ben O’Gorman (who like Sam had being part of the victorious Under Sixteen hurling team a couple of weeks previously) was not a lot of pressure. The introduction of Nathan Prunty and Oscar Harty brought further threat upfront for Bray who eventually ran out 6:6 to 1:11 winners for a great double for the club on the day.This was a great effort by the squad in a very competitive division, everyone played their part with a number of players injured for the final being instrumental in getting the team there. Special thanks to all the parents and under 16 squad who stayed for the game, their support was really appreciated by the team. The squad would also like to thank members of the victorious Senior team who made time after their own victory to come over to provide words of encouragement before the game....

Bray Emmets Vs Kilmac/Enniskerry Bray Emmets under fourteen development football team had their fourth game against near neighbours Kilmac /Enniskerry last Wednesday in Old Conna. Kilmac /Enniskerry started the better and went ahead. However with Eoin and Tadhg taking over in midfield, helped with hardworking half forward line of Evan,Gordon and eoin ensured that the full forward line of luke, Alex and Eoin got more into the game. Eoin F in particular was causing all sorts of problems scoring two goals and a point after an excellent save from the Kilmac /Enniskerry goalkeeper.As the first half wore on, Kilmac /Enniskerry came more into the game but the ever excellent Philip, Rory and Craig in the half back line were keeping most attacks at bay with the full back line of Aaron, Michael and Donal giving great protection to Ben in goal. However Kilmac /Enniskerry finished the half well and it was level at half time.Bray started the second half better and with Alex and Tadhg playing well at midfield, the ever excellent Evan,Gordon and captain Eoin O were getting on plenty of ball resulting in a number of scores for the two Eoins and luke. Ben with his big and accurate kickouts and the backline of of the immense Michael, Donal and Aaron in the full back line and Philip, Craig and Rory anticipating so much ball in the half back line resulted in Bray playing their best football of the year. Again Kilmac /Enniskerry came back into the game and it needed two well worked scores by the recently arrived Brian and Evan to win the game by the bare minimum.This was a great performance by everyone on the night. We were in the fortunate position to have quality players to come in and make great contributions. There is a great work ethic within the group and everyone should be proud of their performance. Team: Ben, Aaron, Michael, Donal, Rory, Philip, Craig, Tadhg, Eoin F, Gordon, Eoin O, Evan, Eoin m, Luke, Alex and Brian....

Bray Emmets Vs Baltinglass The Under 14 boys Football team played a very competent Baltinglass, Wed 22nd April. This was our most demanding fixture so far, faced with a physically strong group of accomplished Footballers. David Maloney gave two hundred per cent, Michael Timmons a fervent display in the fullback line and Jack Treacy was involved in a lot of good cohesive inter-play. New player, Nathan Murphy also made a very bright début. Despite our best efforts Baltinglass were worthy winners.

U14 Development Football

22 April, 2015

Bray Emmets Vs Barndarrig The under fourteen development football team had their third match in Wicklow last Wednesday against Barndarrig. In sunny conditions Bray settled quickly with Tadhg and Michael playing really well in midfield. Playing against much bigger opponents the forward line of Daniel, Gavin, the two Eoins and Cathal were always dangerous and took their scores well. The backline were fantastic all through with the ever excellent Philip, Rory, Donal and Jamie tacking harrying and blocking their direct opponents to distraction. Aaron playing in goal had a brilliant game. Level at half time, Bray were under pressure for most the second half. The back line was immense throughout and particularly the tackling of Rory, Philip , Jamie and teak tough Donal was very encouraging for the coaches. The midfield of Tadhg and Michael ran themselves to a standstill. The forward line of the now injured Gavin, the ever sharp Daniel, the two Eoins and the hardworking Aaron kept working all the way through. In the end the strength of Barndarrig won through for a hard fought win. Special mention to Cathal who played in goal in the second half, he made a number of top class saves and a calming influence throughout. While defeat was their lot this was the team's best performance so far. They were disciplined and hardworking throughout. Apart from one player all the team will be underage next year so they are getting great experience....

Hurling Féile

14 April, 2015

The under 14 Hurling Féile team played their delayed semi final on Tuesday evening in Arklow Rocks ground. They came up against a very tidy and proficient Carnew team and despite all the lads giving 100% effort right up to the final whistle they lost 5:7 to 2:2. The lads from the south of the county were just that bit stronger than us and despite the best efforts of the Bray team led by a ferociously determined Davy Maloney they were just unable to keep in touch. The team should be proud of their effort as they did their very best and represented the club really well by reaching this stage of the competition. Team : Rory Lambe, Aaron O'Rourke, Michael Timmons. Sebastian Coleman, Conor Hardiman, Davy Maloney (Captaen), Phillip Jacob, Gavin Henderson, Sam Kearney, Jack Treacy, Cathal Eddy, Seán McDonagh, Tadgh McCarthy, Zak Collins, Peter Aherne, Oisín Drury, Rory Mulcahy, Eoin Holmes.

Bray had their second under 14 Division 3 game last Wednesday against Kilbride Lacken. Missing players due to injury, sickness and holidays a number of 2003s were drafted in to ensure the game went ahead. Playing with the wind in the first half, Bray started well with Cathal and Gavin scoring a number of well worked points, Kilbride found it difficult to get into the game due to the hard working midfield of Eoin and Tadhg with the half back line of Philip and Daniel breaking up a number of attacks. Bray continued to dominate with Eoin and Gordon working hard upfront with Evan scoring an excellent goal to give Bray a good lead. However Kilbride came more into the match but the full back line of Donal and Jamie allied with the good work in goal by Art ensured Bray were 11 points ahead at half time. Now playing into the breeze and up the hill Bray immediately came under pressure with Daniel and Philip really upping their game to stop Kilbride getting the scores they needed. Jamie and Donal were very solid in the full back line ensuring the Cathal now in goal was well protected. As the game wore on Bray gained the upper hand in midfield with Tadhg and Eoin working really hard to break up attacks and set up the extremely dangerous Evan (remember the name) and Gavin (already well known!!) for attempts on goal, Eoin Art and Gordon continued to work so hard to ensure Kilbride never got into any rhythm and finishing in almost total darkness Bray ran out winners.This was another good performance with everyone contributing to the win. Thanks to all the parents who made the journey hopefully we will get to play a game in calm and dry conditions as the season goes on....

U14 vs St Pats

1 April, 2015

The Under 14 boys Football team played against St Pats in their first competitive game of the year, Wed 1st April. The platform of assault came from the steely spine of the team. Conor Dowling and David Maloney were excellent for the hour, while Conrad Ruddy and Sam Kearney were courageous, leading their team-mates by example. All four got vital scores. At the very back, Rory Whelan, Sebastian Coleman and goal-keeper Zack Collins stood out for their endeavours. In the second-half, the scores were more free-flowing. Rory Lambe, Oisín Drury, Jack Treacy and a tenacious Gavin Henderson all combined to maximum effect. Bhí na traenálaithe ar fad an-sásta leis an iarracht a rinneadh.

27 March, 2015

On an awful night Bray Emmets played their first Wicklow Under 14 Football League Division 3 against Kilcoole. Playing with a gale in the first half Bray were quickly into their stride with scores from Gavin, Daniel and Cathal. Tadhg and Philip were having  great games in midfield getting on a lot of ball distributing well into the forwards of Cian and Eoin who created a number of scores. With the elements Kilcoole found it hard to get going but settled more into the game as the half wore on, however the backline of Donal,  Jamie, Eoin and Rory were very sharp in the tackle and ensured Aaron in goal had a quiet first half. In the second half Kilcoole started to use the elements in their favour and had a few well worked scores which Aaron could do nothing about, however the backline settled with Rory, Donal Eoin and Jamie working the ball up well to the ever industrious Philip and Tadhg ensuring the sharp Daniel, Eoin , Gavin captain Cian and Cathal kept the scoreboard ticking over for a well deserved win. This was a good win and reflects the work the lads are putting in. Special mention must go to both sets of players, referee,  coaches and parents who braved the elements in what must have one of the worst nights up in Old Conna for an under age game. Team: Aaron, Eoin, Jamie, Rory, Donal, Tadhg, Philip, Gavin, Eoin, Daniel, Cian and Cathal....

Under 14 Football Final

25 October, 2014

Bray Emmets 4-11 St Pats 4-6Bray Emmets were crowned U14 County Champions in Arklow last Saturday after a brilliant display of football. They recovered from conceding a goal in the first minute of the match to lead at half time against the wind and then dominated large periods of the second half. St Pats scored a goal with 7 minutes remaining which could have signalled a comeback but instead Bray Emmets went up the field and scored a couple of brilliant points to seal the win. It is very hard to single out individuals as this was a fantastic team effort by all and a great end to the season. This team have scored 29 goals in 5 games in the championship - a testament to the hard work they have put in with their coach Niall McGraynor on the training field. The team and the mentors would like to thank all the supporters and parents who travelled to support them on the day. ...

The U14 footballers qualified for the next group stages of the 2014 Football Feile by comfortably winning their group yesterday in Ballinakill in fine but windy conditions. Eleven teams registered for the competition and Bray Emmets were drawn in Group 2 with Derry Gaels and AGB. Their first match was against Derry Gaels and playing with a stiff breeze in their favour they came flying out of the blocks. Early goals from Ben Kearney and Mick O'Gara got the team off to a great start and they never looked back after that. They ran out comfortable winers on a scoreline of 7-9 to 0-1. Highlights of the game were full forward Mick O'Gara's four goals, the work of his full forward line partners Jordan Temple and MacDara O'Mhideach, Andrew Conway's power house display in midfield and the industry of the half backline of Joe Phelan,Davey Maloney and Rory Whelan who excelled in his new role at centre back and also a magnificent long range point from Cian Lohan. In the match vs AGB Bray Emmets had to play the first half into a stiff breeze. They played their best half of football of the day during this period moving the ball at pace and putting togethor some fine passing movements – a testimony to the hard work they have put in under coaches Niall McGraynor, Rory Breslin and Paul Barry. The match finished 4-11 to 1-1 in Bray's favour. Highlights of this game were the brilliant corner back play of Andrew O'Brien with solid support from Sid Hunt and Donnchadh Griffin in the full back line, the dominance of Ciaran McKay in midfield and Darragh Rochford's five points from play in the first half.

Under 14 Football Championship Semi-Final

21 September, 2008

Bray Emmets 0-6 , St Nicholas 1-7. Bray finished a long season in defeat at the semi final stage of the U14 Football Championship when going down with a battling performance after conceding a soft goal in the first minute. Bray could never get on terms and while they had some chances the bigger and stronger Nicholas team won out on the day. Bray fielded seven U13 players in the starting 15.St Nicholas got their goal from the throw in when Bray failed to get clean possession and lost the ball twice before a hopping ball was not dealt with and the corner forward had the easy job of tapping the ball into the net. Bray came back strongly and a fine move was finished by Dara Lohan for a point. Bray then had the move of the match when a three man passing movement set Luke Maloney up for a goal but the keeper pulled off a great save and the ball went out for a 45 . We failed to score from the 45 but at half time we were still in the game with Nicholas ahead by 1-4 to 0-3. Bray started the second half on fire and Luke Maloney kicked a fine point but Bray then struggled again and could not get the upper hand and were never closer than 3 points for the entire half. Muiris O'Floinn played well with Ben Mc Cormack, Mark Lennon and Dara Henderson coming into the game in the second half. Luke Maloney was our most dangerous forward while Craig Dowling did well in goal and could do nothing with the ball that beat him.. Overall we gave a gutsy display and everyone tried hard but we could never dominate and were never able to claw back the unfortunate goal at the beginning. Still we had a great year finishing top of Division 1 in the league. We used about 40 players a lot of 13 year olds and this should stand to the team for next years U14 Championships. Great credit is due to Chris Masterson who manages the team in both Hurling and Football as well as being a selector with the Wicklow U14 Hurling squad. Bray: Craig Dowling, Cathal O'Dulachain, Jim Doyle, Ben Mc Cormack, Luke Gorman, Diarmuid Masterson, Dara Henderson, Muiris O'Floinn, Andy Bartley, Mark Lennon, Enda Molloy, Danny O'Toole, Cian O'Byrne, Luke Maloney, Dara Lohan, Josh Connolly, Ryan Fagan, Stephen Kirwan, Ryan Tynan, Eoin Mc Cormack. ...

Bray Emmets maintained their position on top of the U14 Football championship by defeating St Patricks by 4-14 to 5-4. St Patricks are struggling for numbers as they entered two teams in this grade.

Andy Bartley at midfield scored 3 goals and Dara Henderson at wing back scored the other. The best players on the night were Jay Curran, Dara Henderson, Andy Bartley and Diarmuid Masterson .

Wicklow Football Feile

26 April, 2008

Bray Emmets competed in the Wicklow Feile on Saturday last. We were drawn in a group with St Nicholas Dunlavin and St Patrick's Wicklow. We were based in Rathdrum and played St Nicholas in the first match.There was incessant rain and a breeze on a heavy pitch which was hard on our smaller players We started slowly and conceded an early goal which can be a disaster in a 15 minute half. We lead at half time by 0-5 to 1-1. We took the game to Nicholas's in the second half and won by 2-7 to 2-3. Our next game was against St Pats and this was a tough dour contest where we dominated , hit the crossbar and did everything except score. We managed a draw at 0-4 each and that got us a place in the semi final in Ashford against Rathnew so we piled soaking wet children into the cars and headed to Ashford where the weather was dry for the first half. Again we started slowly and gave away a goal against the run of play. However the lads gathered themselves and were ahead at half time by 0-5 to 1-1. In the second half we stepped up our game and won by 1-7 to 1-2. We were now in the final and playing better as the day went on, the weather was easier on us in Ashford where our players could move the ball better in the drier conditions. Meanwhile St Pats had remained in Rathdrum and beat Greystones by a big score in the other semi. Again we piled the soaking children into cars and headed for Rathdrum where the rain was now a downpour. We had a horrible start when we conceded a goal almost from the throw in but we fought on and led at half time by 1-2 to 1-1. Again we conceded a goal at the start of the second half followed by a point however we rallied again and scored a great goal. Again we laid siege to the Pats goal and the keeper was beaten but the ball stuck in the mud on the goal line and Pats were saved on a scoreline of 2-3 to 2-2.. Bray had some outstanding displays particularly Jim Doyle at centreback, ably assisted by Muiris O'Flionn at full back, Pierse Sweeney and Diarmuid Masterson at midfield. Daragh Lohan up front showed well for the ball. Top scorer for Bray was Pierse Sweeney with 3 goals and 4 points followed by Cian O'Byrne with 2 goals and 2 points. We had a great day and our team performed really well playing great football and were very unlucky but we had two matches against St Pats and failed to beat them so they are worthy winners and hopefully will do Wicklow proud in the All Ireland Feile in Cavan/Monaghan . We wish them all the best and look forward to meeting them later in the championship.

League Game V Arklow

2 April, 2008

Bray Emmets 1-11, Arklow Geraldines Ballymoney 1-6. Bray Emmets under 14 team got the 2008 football season off on a winning note in Arklow on Wed evening in a really good football match. All the players did well . The panel consists of U13 and U14 and some of the younger lads particularly Daniel O'Toole up front and Andrew Bartley in goal did well on the their first outing at this level. The game started well for Bray and we got the first score however we were rocked by an early goal and it looked like we were in trouble. By half time we had steadied the ship despite a blood injury to Diarmuid Masterson to go in level at 0-5 to 1-2. We played with the breeze in the second half and then we showed some great class to score 1-3 in a blistering 10 minute spell. The scores involved 4 and 5 passes in field length movements with all the players getting involved. Arklow rallied and we defended gallantly to hold them to point scoring chances with some great saves and block downs. Overall a great team effort with everyone playing their part and giving their all.
