Both sides on the same wave­length

Bray People - - Sport -

JUST MO­MENTS af­ter ref­eree Alan Kelly’s fi­nal whis­tle last Fri­day night the post-match in­ter­views be­gan and in an ex­tremely rare oc­cur­rence, all in­ter­vie­wees seemed to be on the same wave­length about the match they had just wit­nessed.

Man of the Match Ray Kenny, Bray man­ager Ed­die Gorm­ley and Gal­way gaffer Jeff Kenna all said they felt the re­sult was a fair one.

‘Ra­zor’ was still panting from his ex­ploits dur­ing the match but he man­aged to dis­cuss how dif­fi­cult it was go­ing be­hind just be­fore the break and what he thought of the match.

‘Yeah it was, 1-0 down at half-time is al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult you know, but we were still in it, we got a goal and I thought ei­ther team could’ve won it in the end you know but prob­a­bly 1-1 was a fair re­sult on the night.’

‘Yeah it’s al­ways tough go­ing in just be­fore the break af­ter con­ced­ing but you know there was noth­ing in it in the first half up un­til the goal and we knew if we worked hard, kept plug­ging away we’d get our re­ward you know. There was very lit­tle be­tween the sides and we’ll go and do it again next week.’

The man in the Gal­way dugout also gave a very hon­est as­sess­ment of the game, spoke about his side’s goal but re­vealed they wouldn’t be do­ing too much be­fore last night’s re­play at the Carlisle Grounds.

‘Good game of foot­ball, goal scor­ing chances for both teams, I think it was a fair re­sult.

‘It’s some­thing we’ve been work­ing on, you know, we haven’t scored enough goals from open play and we’ve just been work­ing, well we haven’t par­tic­u­larly worked on this one but you know, it’s get­ting play­ers in and around the box and not be­ing afraid to have a shot. We got a lit­tle bit of luck with the de­flec­tion but I mean, I think we had plenty of shots in the first half, un­for­tu­nately not too many on tar­get.

‘No there’s not a lot we can do on the train­ing field like I say, it’s a case of get­ting a bit of a rest, get some de­cent food into them, see who’s got bumps and bruises and take it from there.’

Last up was Ed­die Gorm­ley who sported a cheeky grin, no doubt de­lighted that they now bring Gal­way back to Bray where Gorm­ley has al­ways said his side could beat any­one on their day, ad­mit­ting his side weren’t on top for the first half but found their feet in the sec­ond half af­ter some tin­ker­ing.

‘Yeah I mean, first half they caused us a lot of prob­lems, you know, they played a player in the hole and it seemed to make us a lit­tle bit dis­jointed you know, but we had a word and we changed a few things and we came out and we were a lot bet­ter sec­ond-half.’
