Bray Wanderers retain five players for forthcoming season
Bray Wanderers have completed the signing of five key members of last season’s squad and added some well-known new faces.
Gary McCabe, Hugh Douglas, John Sullivan, Conor Kenna and Ger Pender have returned to the Carlisle Grounds for the 2018 season while the club has signed former UCD, Limerick and St Patrick’s Athletic midfielder Paul O’Conor. Also joining are Sean Heaney, Dylan Hayes and Jake Kelly, who spent last season with Waterford, Bohemians and Longford Town respectively.
Manager Dave Mackey hopes Peter Cherrie will re-sign in time for Saturday’s first training session and intends to talk with Mark Salmon when he returns from abroad. He currently has 14 players, though, including newly arrived young centre-half Darragh Gibbons and a group of four players still under contract from last year headed up by midfielder Aaron Greene.
