Bray Wanderers will not face any charges into alleged match-fixing after the Football Association completed its investigation into a friendly match against Waterford last September.

The FAI released a statement this evening (Thursday) saying: "The Football Association of Ireland has concluded its investigation into alleged match-fixing surrounding the friendly match between Bray Wanderers FC and Waterford FC on Friday, September 8 at the Carlisle Grounds.

"The investigation, which was conducted in addition with an investigation run by An Garda Siochana, has found that there was insufficient evidence to bring any charges in relation to any breaches of FAI rules.

"The FAI has a zero tolerance policy to match-fixing."

Gardaí visited a Bray Wanderers training session last September as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations of match fixing surrounding the match against Waterford, who beat the Seagulls 5-0.
