Mick Cooke appointed new Bray Wanderers manager
Mick Cooke has been appointed new Bray Wanderers manager following the departure of Trevor Croly from the club last week.
Croly stepped down following a much publicised row with the club when it was revealed that some of the Seagulls players were not paid on time.
Cooke, who has yet to name his backroom team, will take charge immediately in a deal that will see him in control at the Carlisle Grounds until the end of the 2016 season.
"Bray Wanderers FC are pleased to announce the appointment of Mick Cooke as our Club Manager," said the club this evening.
"Mick will be taking immediate control of the squad and will be announcing his staff shortly.
"Mick has had a long involvement in Irish Football – he played with St Patrick’s Athletic, Drogheda United , Shamrock Rovers and Galway United.
"He has managed Athlone Town, Drogheda United, Monaghan United and been Assistant Manager at Shamrock Rovers.
"He is contracted to end 2016 season.
"We look forward to getting Bray Wanderers FC back focussed on the football pitch."
