Bray Wanderers facing uncertain future as players are put up for sale

Bray Wanderers have announced that they will be listening to offers for any of their players as a result of the club’s inability to guarantee wages until the end of the season.

According to the Irish Daily Mirror, the players were informed before their game against Limerick on Friday that their wages would be deferred until today.

However, the club remain unable to pay the players’ wages and have been forced to consider offers.

In a statement, club chairman Gerry Mulvey said: “The situation could change overnight but until such time as it does, we will listen to offers and make decisions on a case by case basis.

“We wish them the best of luck in their endeavours to secure new contracts elsewhere.”

This is the second year in a row in which the Seagulls have incurred issues with financing the club and its squad.

In 2017, similar issues with wages ultimately led to every player transfer listing themselves as well as the resignation of then-chairman Denis O’Connor.

Bray Wanderers would inevitably receive financial backing, only for the club to then release an astonishing statement accusing Wicklow as being akin to North Korea for business.

“We are going to give Wicklow and Ireland something to be proud of where there will be an academy to rival the best in the world. Our vision and ,rest assured ,we will execute the delivery of our vision is a world class football academy to rival the best in the world,” the statement read.

This news does not come at a good time for the club, with the Seagulls currently sitting bottom of the Airtricity League Premier Division — nine points behind Limerick who beat Bray this past Friday evening in a relegation six-pointer.
