Bray play­ers asked to take pay cut

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

BRAY WAN­DER­ERS have be­come the lat­est Eir­com League side to be hit by the eco­nomic cri­sis.

The club have asked all play­ers to take a 40 per cent wage cut un­til the end of the sea­son as Bray’s low at­ten­dances have come back to haunt them.

Chair­man Ed­die Slevin and other board direc­tors re­port­edly asked the play­ers to at­tend an emer­gency meet­ing last Wed­nes­day night where they were asked to agree to the wage cut for the re­main­der of the sea­son.

It is al­leged that a de­vel­oper who had been sup­port­ing the club fi­nan­cially had de­cided to halt his fi­nan­cial aid to the club.

Some play­ers were ru­moured to be out­raged by the club’s re­quest and re­ports even say some went to the PFAI but have now all agreed to the tem­po­rary wage cut.

The club’s bud­get for next sea­son will also be slashed by 25 per cent as the eco­nomic crunch hits home.

This makes Bray the eigth team from the Premier Divi­sion to pub­licly an­nounce fi­nan­cial woes in what is a wor­ry­ing time for foot­ball in Ire­land.
