Team News vs Galway United

Carlisle Grounds

SSE Airtricity League First Division

Friday March 11, 2022

7.45 p.m.


With both clubs having faced Cork City and Waterford FC in their first two fixtures of the 2022 season, Bray host Galway United on Friday at the Carlisle Grounds.



Head of Football Pat Devlin is looking to make it third time lucky this season as the Seagulls take on the Tribesmen.

“The staff and players have been absolutely brilliant. We can’t ask for any more of them. We’ve been unlucky with injuries. But they are improving, and we are getting there. Our performance against Waterford was quite reasonable. But we all know we can do better.”

He continued “It is a new beginning for everybody. We’re not making excuses – there’s a lot of work going on. And it’s a work in progress. It’s still very exciting. Hopefully, we can turn the corner against Galway. But it will be difficult as they are a very good side.”



The break in competitive action means a near full squad will be available.



Mark Moynihan will take charge of the fixture with Darren Carey and

Eoin Harte being the Assistants. The fourth official is Alan Patchell.
