VW deal for Seagulls

MOTORING giant Volkswagen has been signed as a new sponsor for Bray Wanderers Football Club.

The 'Seagulls' and Sinnott Autos dealership, in partnership with Volkswagen, will begin a one-year venture that see the car retailer as the main shirt sponsor of the club.

Bray Wanderers has won the FAI Cup twice and has represented Ireland in European competitions and in 2011, they finished in the top six of the Airtricity League.

Last year, they also qualified for the first time in the club's history for the Setanta Sports Cup.

This year will be the club's eighth successive season in the Premier Division of the Airtricity League.
