Bray get Premier Licence, but still unclear what Division they are in.

Bray Wanderers get a Premier Division Licence for the 2010 season .
It is still unclear what Division the Wicklow side will be in after the Licensing committee deferred the decision on Cork City

The Independent Club Licensing Committee has deferred its decision on Cork City until after the High Court case comes in for mention on Monday, February 22nd next.

In making its decision, the Independent Club Licensing Committee noted that one of the fundamental principles of club licensing is the protection of creditors such as club employees, other clubs and the Revenue.

The Independent Club Licensing Committee was made aware of a potential takeover which may result in commitments to creditors being honoured. As this takeover is dependent on the outcome of the High Court order, the Independent Committee felt it prudent to await that outcome and give maximum opportunity for creditors to be paid.

The application from FORAS has been deferred pending the outcome of the Cork City decision.
