Bray Wanderers captain David Cassidy will be player/caretaker manager of his side as they travel to Louth to take on his former club Drogheda United.
There had been uncertainty as to who would take charge of the Seagulls for the trip to United Park tonight following the departure of caretaker manager Maciej Tarnogrodzki yesterday but we now know that the Bray captain, and top scorer will be the one taking charge.
Tarnogrodzki, who took over as caretaker manager from Alan Mathews, led Bray to two successive victories, over Sligo Rovers and Limerick, before drawing with Derry. Those seven points, which may prove to be vital come the end of the season, are the only points Bray have picked up this season.
Cassidy will tonight be hoping to end a run of three successive defeats, which has seen his side concede 16, and score just one goal, scored from the penalty spot against Dundalk by Cassidy himself.
It is also believed that the Seagulls are close to announcing the appointment of their new manager, an announcement which could be made in the coming days. As for who that new manager is, we don’t yet know but the name doing the rounds at the minute is that of former Shamrock Rovers manager Trevor Croly.
