Cup Heartbreak for Ladies 1's

Michelle Lambert’s solo strike crowned Bray’s fruitful comeback season as they held Suttonians at bay in the division 3/4 final at Grange Road in the sixth of six divisional finals. Powered by Jen O’Neill, Bray nicked the lead as Lambert finished off a right-wing cross but were grateful to a staunch defensive effort in the closing stages as Suttonians – coached by former Irish keeper Mary Goode – piled forward but could not get passed Danielle Doyle between the posts. For Bray, it added cup glory to league promotion in the year after they opted to drop down from division one.
