End In Sight As Bray Confirm Players Will Soon Be Paid

End In Sight As Bray Confirm Players Will Soon Be Paid
By Gavin Cooney

Bray Wanderers have today released a statement confirming that their players will be paid all money owed to them today, moving toward an end of the impasse between the club and its playing staff. The Bray squad last week voted for strike action having not been paid for six weeks.

Bray apologised to the players and praised the FAI's involvement in the process.

Bray Wanderers FC can confirm that outstanding monies owed to players will be processed today (Thursday, July 19) after working closely with the Football Association of Ireland. The club wishes to apologise to the players for this extended period in finalising monies owed. While the club accepts full responsibility for contractual obligations not being met on time, we have worked hard, to resolve the matter.

The club would like to thank the FAI for their constant involvement in working to resolve what has been an unfortunate period for all involved. The club are getting closer to finding a solution to fulfill all players’ wages for the remainder of the 2018 SSE Airtricity League season .

The club are currently without a permanent manager, as Martin Russell stepped down last night. Russell released a statement on Bray's website confirming the news.

I would like to thank all the staff, supporters and players for their efforts whilst at the club. It has been a trying time for everyone concerned and highlights once again the lack of a proper football industry that we can all aspire to.

Russell also paid tribute to Bray chairman Gerry Mulvey.

Gerry has always been honest with me, but unfortunately promises made to him have constantly been reneged on and, despite his tireless efforts, he has been unable to find enough support throughout the business world and the FAI in order to bring matters to a viable resolution,

Graham Kelly has taken temporary charge.
