Long parts com­pany with Bray

Bray People - - Sport -

KEITH LONG has parted com­pany with Bray Wan­der­ers. The for­mer St. Pat’s and Bray Wan­der­ers star had been Ed­die Gorm­ley’s as­sis­tant man­ager since day one but has now left due to work com­mit­ments.

Com­ment­ing on his de­par­ture, first team coach and pos­si­ble re­place­ment for Long Paul Osam said: ‘Keith left last week. He’s very busy in his job and with the cur­rent cli­mate, the eco­nomic cli­mate; he just needed to take a break away from it.’

The prob­a­ble re­sult of Long’s un­timely de­par­ture will see Osam va­cate the po­si­tion un­til the end of the sea­son and he would then be heavy favourite to get the job on a per­ma­nent ba­sis next sea­son. Osam how­ever, was keep­ing tight lipped on the sit­u­a­tion.

‘I don’t know (what’s go­ing to hap­pen). I haven’t spo­ken about that we just need to get the last few games out of the way and I don’t know what will hap­pen af­ter that to be hon­est with you.’

What­ever hap­pens, Keith Long will be sorely missed around the Carlisle Grounds as he was al­most be­com­ing a piece of fur­ni­ture at the Bray venue. His vast ex­pe­ri­ence was al­ways help­ful and there aren’t many nicer men in the busi­ness.
