Our feature interview on this week's Extratime.ie Sportscast sees Declan Marron and Dave Donnelly talk to the new Bray Wanderers owner Niall O'Driscoll.

O'Driscoll, the academy director of Bray's schoolboy partner club St Joseph's Boys, has taken over a 51% stake in the club alongside his brother Tim, a former Dublin GAA player.

The new owner talks about how he was approached by former majority owner Gerry Mulvey last week and by Thursday had completed the takeover of a majority stake.

He discusses his hopes for the club moving forward, his insistance that children under 14 will be granted free admission to every game and the potential benefits for Joey's.

Outlining his aim to turn Bray Wanderers the club into something vibrant and sustainable in the town, O'Driscoll discussses how that has to be separated from the football side.

Dec and Dave also discuss the FAI's move to fully fund an emergency fund for clubs that can't pay wages and the proposed 3,000-seater stadium project for Drogheda United.

The lads also preview Dundalk v AEK Larnaca in the Europa League on Thursday and look ahead to this weekend's League of Ireland games.
