First Division Playoff
Bray's season ended with a single goal loss to Galway United in the first of the promotion playoff matches this weekend.
It was a less than satisfactory end to what had becone a promising season despite a poor enough start, although there had been some hints of a slight loss of form in the recent fixtures.
An eighth minute shot from Enda Curran nicely saved by Brian Maher, and Derek Daly's effort just over a quarter of an hour in, which brought a fine low save from Micheal Schlingermann, were the only chances of note in a first half the home side dominated in possession terms.
But Bray seemed to lose focus in the second period, and although several individual efforts went close, Seán McEvoy's effort with just over twenty minutes left was the closest the Seagulls came to scoring.
Galway, by contrast, appeared to grow in determination as the game went on, and it was little surprise that substitute Wilson Waweru pounced on Maher's failure to hold the ball and poked home a winner.
John Ross Wilson had a late chance to equalise, but shot straight into Schlingermann's arms.
