Vital Bray goal pushes Shelbourne out of Premier League

Bray Wanderers manager Pat Devlin

A GOAL from Kieran Waters was enough to sink Shelbourne out of the Premier League and give Bray Wanderers a vital 1-0 victory against Bohemians at Dalymount Park.

Pat Devlin’s team could still face a relegation play-off if next week’s last round of games don’t go their way, but there will be no such reprieve for Shelbourne who have been relegated.

Waters goal arrived 15 minutes from time – against the run of play – as he fired a shot past Bohs goalkeeper Dean Delany.

Elsewhere, having secured the title against Sligo last week, it was a night of celebration at Richmond Park as they lifted the Premier League trophy following a 1-1 draw against Derry City thanks to a late equaliser from Anto Flood.

There were also comfortable victories for Dundalk, who beat Cork City 4-1, while Shamrock Rovers hammered UCD 4-1.

In the promotion play off first leg, Mervue put themselves in pole position to advance with a 1-0 victory against Longford.
