Bray People - - Sport -

THERE has been a new face at the Carlisle Grounds this week, but un­for­tu­nately there are also some old ones miss­ing, writes Daniel Gor­man.

Bray Wan­der­ers this week con­firmed the sign­ing of Daire Doyle from Long­ford Town but he won’t get the op­por­tu­nity to play with Gavin Whe­lan, Gary Cronin or Alan Caw­ley who have all left the club.

The 28-year-old be­gan his ca­reer with Cherry Or­chard be­fore mak­ing the move to Eng­land to join Coven­try City in 2000 as an ap­pren­tice. The fol­low­ing year he joined Kid­der­min­ster Har­ri­ers for a two year spell, play­ing for the club 27 times in that pe­riod and find­ing the net twice.

Doyle also en­joyed spells at Nuneaton Bor­ough, Moor Green, Red- ditch United and Broms­grove Rovers be­fore re­turn­ing to Ire­land in 2007 and de­cid­ing to play his foot­ball at Flan­care Park.

The mid­fielder made 56 league ap­pear­ances for Long­ford, notch­ing twice and will now ply his trade at the Carlisle Grounds.

Alan Caw­ley has de­cided to join St. Pat’s, while Cronin and Whe­lan also parted ways with the Wick­low club.

n Bray Wan­der­ers have con­firmed two more pre-sea­son friendlies. The Seag­ulls will take on Mon­aghan United this Satur­day at Way­side Celtic’s ground in Kil­ter­nan, with a 2 p.m. kick-off.

Then on Mon­day, Fe­bru­ary 23, they will take on their re­cently rel­e­gated ri­vals UCD at the Belfield Bowl with a kick-off time of 7.45 p.m.
