"Lest we Forget", Cork delivered a strong reminder to Bray as to why, regardless of Monday's result, the Seagulls are leaving the top flight for a time.

Kieran Sadlier opened the scoring after a first 20 minutes of home pressure, and went on to complete his hat-trick in the opening minutes of the second period.

Gearóid Morrissey and Barry McNamee were the Rebels' other scorers in what looked like a Bray lay-down-and-die.

But after the home side went 5-0 up, Jake Ellis nicked one back for the visitors, who went on to hold the Cork side scoreless for the remaining forty minutes of football.

It was only a small gesture of defiance, but a welcome indication that the Wicklow side still has the desire to make a quick return to the Premier Division.
