Wanderers fought back from two goals down to earn a draw in the first game played at the new Bray Wanderers/St. Joseph’s Boys Academy grounds in Carrickmines.

Jamie Aherne had Wanderers first shot on goal after 24 minutes which Howard saved. Limerick went close on the half hour when Cotter headed over from a corner. A minute later, Malachy Doyle turned a shot from Foley out for a corner.

Two minutes before the break, Dylan O’Connor’s shot was cleared off the line by a Limerick defender. Bray then lost striker Jamie Aherne on the stroke of halt time with an injury.

Limerick took the lead on 51 minutes with an overhead kick from Will Fitzgerald. The visitors doubled their lead when Barry Cottor fired home after the ball rebounded off the post following a Limerick corner on 62 minutes.

Within three minutes Wanderers had pulled a goal back. Conall Flood took possession from the Limerick keeper and tapped into the net. Four minutes from time Ross Broderick headed home the equaliser from a Bray corner.
