Breakthrough in Bray as players to receive unpaid wages

Bray Wanderers have revealed that wages owed to the club’s players will be processed this evening.

The Bray players have not been paid since the 25th of May, with the squad voting in favour of strike action last week.

The situation had escalated to the Football Association of Ireland filing sanctions against the club after Bray were unable to pay monies owed to the players by a deadline of 5pm on Monday.

However, the club have revealed in a statement today that they will be arranging payment of owed money to the players this evening.

“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 statement read.

Reacting to the news, SIPTU’s Sport Sector Organiser Denis Hynes told WicklowNews that he was delighted with the development, and that SIPTU would “continue to monitor the situation moving forward”.
