It is with great regret that we release this statement.

We had sincerely hoped that we could resolve the unsatisfactory payment situation at the club, but despite weeks of negotiations by the PFA Ireland on our behalf, these efforts have proven fruitless.

It is now seven weeks (25th May 2018), since we have been paid with no prospect of payment of these arrears or realistic proposals for future wages in sight. We are all players who rely on our weekly wage to pay our bills, mortgages and every day living expenses.

During the above time frame, players who required operations due to injuries were forced to pay for their own operations, as the club was unable to pay for same. Issues around rehab and physiotherapy for players have also been an issue.

This is, of course, the second season that contract issues have arisen and it is hugely disappointing that the club have allowed this situation to arise. We have now lost all trust in the club to respect our contracts. We had hoped, in vain, that the FAI would attempt to resolve the problems but in spite of the obvious signposts erected during last season’s uncertainty, the FAI and their licensing department have failed to address a very obvious red flag and do not appear to have any plan to resolve this crisis.

With no prospect of this appalling situation being resolved, we have balloted to strike and by overwhelming majority, we will be providing seven-day notice to the club on Tuesday. Coming to this decision last night was one of the hardest of our professional careers and reached with the heaviest of hearts.

This is very much a last resort action but we feel we have been left with no choice.

To the Bray Wanderers supporters, our fellow League of Ireland players and clubs, and to the wider League of Ireland community we sincerely hope that you understand that we have been left with no other option than to take this action.

Bray Wanderers Players

Expecting a downbeat mood down at the Stadium of Light tonight , with the reported news that new stadium plans looks dead in the water.

Clarke and Clifford start against their recent team


#730

Bohs 3 up vs Bray after 30 minutes


#731

Limerick score!


#732

Worst half I’ve seen from Pats this year.
Limerick by been decidedly average are still better than Pats.
Didn’t think was a penalty but Maguire shrieked so loud ref was persuaded to give it.
Clifford not got going at all (not only one to be fair)
It’s started to drizzle slightly
Very small attendance
Worrying times Camac side


#733

Evil by Interpol getting played on PA system at half time
Nice


#734

Much better second half from the Saints.
The double subs at half time got Saints into the game
Be surprised if Conor Clifford seems much game time for rest of season, Jamie Lennon’s much better option
Conan Byrne a great bit of stuff


#735

FOAD.


#736

Some.updates

Wes training with SRFC
A lot of overseas teams in for Bazanu. He is signed and should be here until he finishes his leaving. Could sign for another club and be loaned back.
A number of recent Celtic youth players have been given the option of staying in Ireland and training with SRFC.
Burke is probably better off outside Ireland considering his dad was shot by the kinahans
Big teams expected of the youth team that will break through in 4 years.
