A new era for Bray Wanderers began today when new incoming Chairman Tony Richardson and Director of Football Pat Devlin outlined the plans for the club after the former’s acquisition of a majority shareholding in Bray Wanderers.

Speaking at the media briefing this morning Tony and Pat added that the team will play under the Bray Wanderers name. We are keen to bring as many people with us as we can. The kit colours will be green and white

Tony Richardson: “The FAI have been encouraging. The combination of the two clubs has caused a head ache on one side. From a football perspective, the FAI have been supportive. We’re involved in the licensing process at present.

Pat Devlin: “We want to embrace the whole Wicklow area. Cabinteely have a major role to play. We want to be inclusive.”
