Team News vs Bray Wanderers


SSE Airtricity League First Division

Friday July 30, 2021


All roads lead along the N11 for the second time this season on Friday as Cabinteely host Bray Wanderers at Stradbrook for the ‘East Coast Derby’.


Like any derby, Cabinteely Assistant Manager/ First team coach Eddie Gormley is expecting a battle.

”It is going to be another tough game. Bray are a very good side. They are doing well in the league. Obviously we’ve had a little blip. But we will be working hard to try and get a result.”

With 500 spectators allowed into Stradbrook, Gormley believes the fans will add to the derby atmosphere. 

“It will be nice to have a bit of atmosphere in the ground. And with it being a derby, there should be a good crowd. Players will react differently to that, not having a crowd at games for a while now. We’ve had a good week of training. So, we’ll give it a shot and see what happens.”


Cabo’s record appearance holder Kevin Knight returns from suspension. Defender Andy O’Brien has departed the club.


Mark Moynihan will take charge of the fixture with David Berry and Philip Harrison being the assistants. The fourth official is Alan Carey.

The game will be only the seventh time that the teams have met in league action.

Last May at the Carlisle Grounds, Bray won 3-0 with goals by Dylan Barnett, Richie O’Farrell and Gary Shaw.

Back in February 2020, goals by Kieran Marty Waters, Vilius Labutis and Keith Dalton (2) had the home side 4-0 up at half time. Wanderers hit back through Gary Shaw and Jack Watson in the second period.

Then in September last year, Wanderers won 3-0 at the Carlisle Grounds with goals by Derek Daly, Gary Shaw, and Darragh Lynch.

The previous three league fixtures were all back in the 2019 season.

Back in February 2019 on the opening day of the season, Bray won 3-0 at Stradbrook with second half goals by Dylan McGlade (2) and Dean O’Halloran.

Then in April 2019 at the Carlisle Grounds, it ended with honours even at 1-1. Jake Ellis put the Wicklow side ahead. But Vilius Labutis equalised in the second period.

Back at Stradbrook in July 2019, Yuta Sasaki scored a late winner in a 2-1 success for Cabo. Paul Fox had given the home team the lead which was cancelled out by Dylan McGlade.

The teams also met in the Leinster Senior Cup last March 2019. Cabinteely won 2-1 at the Carlisle Grounds. Luke Clucas and Sean Fitzpatrick netted for Cabo with Luke Jovic replying for the Seagulls.
