The details


Pat Devlin (born 23 April 1953 in Dublin) is an Irish former footballer, director of football and manager of Cabinteely.

He was previously in charge of Bray Wanderers from 1986 to 1990, 1995 to 2006, 2010 and 2011.

For a short spell during his TEK tenure Pat played for Dalkey United, where he achieved a career highlight by scoring the winning goal against Limerick in a 1976 FAI Cup tie at the Market's Field.

As player/manager he made his League of Ireland debut for Bray on St Patrick's Day 1988 in a 3–0 home win over Sligo and his only goal came at Richmond Park (football ground) on 1 April where he was also sent off.

Devlin departed just before Christmas 1990 to link up with Noel King at Shamrock Rovers by becoming their Technical Director. However his tenure at the RDS Arena didn't work out and Devlin moved to manage Athlone Town. After a season at Drogheda he moved back to Bray in 1995 and steered them to winning the League of Ireland First Division Shield and the League of Ireland First Division title. On the back of this he was appointed manager of the League of Ireland First Division XI and the following season in charge of the League of Ireland XI.

In January 2002 Devlin celebrated his 500th game in charge of The Seagulls. In May 2004 he was appointed manager of the National League Under-21s. He stepped down from Bray in March 2006 to take charge of the Republic of Ireland B national football team.

Under Devlin Bray are the only team in history to have entered both the Cup Winners' Cup (1990) and UEFA Cup (1999) while playing at the second level domestically.

In December 2016, Devlin was appointed Director of Football and First team Manager of Cabinteely FC on a three-year contract.
