Strong first friendly for Bray


Shamrock Rovers 3-3 Bray Wanderers (?Kiltipper, 12 noon)
[Rory Gaffney 2, Seán Hoare; Gary Shaw, Steven Kinsella, Brandon Kavanagh]

An encouraging start for the visitors as they held the Champions to even scores.

Bray recorded the second goal as by Kinsella, despite no player of that name being on the sheet, thereby revealing the identity of their 'Trialist A'.

Gaffney had put the Hoops two up inside the first quarter of an hour's play. The Seagulls reduced the deficit shortly before half time through Shaw, who was probably also wearing the captain's armband.

Kinsella and Kavanagh scored within a short space of time in the early second period, leaving Wanderers leading 3-2.

And former Dundalk man Seán Hoare levelled matters with less than a quarter left to play.

No details of the Rovers team were to hand, and no substitution information.

Bray team: 1 Brian Maher; 2 Mark Byrne, 4 Andrew Quinn, 5 Aaron Barry, 21 Conor Clifford; 14 Richard O'Farrell, 24 Trialist A, 17 Luka Lovic, 7 Ryan Graydon; 28 Brandon Kavanagh; 10 Gary Shaw
Subs: 3 Dylan Barnett, 19 Darragh Lynch, 20 Don Franklin, 22 Kian Mehan, 24 Brendan Nott, 25 Kian Clarke (gk), 26 Glen Hollywood
