Bray in clear for Premier as FAI award licence at last

Bray Wanderers

BRAY Wanderers have been cleared to play in in the top flight next season after they were finally awarded a Premier Division licence.

Bray fans were facing an anxious time when the club failed to obtain a Premier licence when they were issued by the FAI two weeks ago, as the FAI asked for "further clarification" on a number of issues. But the club confirmed that they dealt with the FAI's queries.

"Bray Wanderers is absolutely delighted to have been awarded our SSE Airtricity Premier League licence for 2015," the club said as Alan Mathews (inset) can now prepare his side for a top flight campaign.

Athlone and Cobh have been awarded First Division licences.
