Due to work commitments, I have been away from this for a few days, so now I am going to do my best to catch up on all outstanding results, ranging from the bad, to the disappointing to celebration

Men’s Premier Division Relegation Play Off

Tombrack United  0  New Ross Celtic 4

At this stage this is old news but needs to be recorded none the less. After just one season, the men’s first team dropped out of the Premier Division and back to Division One where a mid season slump proved to be very costly. After three tough games at the start, the lads began to pick up points with wins over Courtown Hibs and Moyne Rangers being the highlights, however as the season wore on, injuries and players missing at crucial times, saw some disappointing defeats against Bridge Rovers and Corach Ramblers in particular.

With the season moving to a close, the lads battled hard to retain their place, securing a late equaliser against Ross Celtic in Ballyboy which forced a relegation play off against the same opposition in Shamrock Rovers pitch a week later.

This game was a step too far and Celtic showed their capabilities and experience as they ran out 4-0 winners in a game that Tombrack struggled to get a grip on, this defeat saw the lads go back to Division One automatically, ironically, to be joined a week later by Ross Celtic who lost the play off proper 2-1 to Forth Celtic

While it was disappointing to drop back after just one year, it will depend on how well the lads can react now and are well capable of battling for promotion again if they can get the attitude right from the start. They can be proud of their efforts in the Premier Division and showed in several games that they can compete at this level and hopefully will be back again in the not too distant future

 

Women’s Nolan Health and Fitness Cup Final

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  2   aet

In a strange cup final played in Moyne Rangers pitch, the Women took on a rejuvenated New Ross Town but fell short in extra time to a Town side who just would not give up. Tombrack controlled the game for long periods and it was always felt that the goal was going to come to go in front, but it never did, despite Shannon, Sarah, Leanne and player of the match (for Tombrack), Mary Boland all going close, hitting the post three times, seeing balls scrambled off the line, fingertip saves from the Ross keeper as the opposition goal lived a charmed life

No goals saw the game go to extra time where Town got the break and scored near the end of the first ten minutes and again early in the second to lead 2-0. Once again Tombrack hit the crossbar when Mary Boland broke through and Leanne’s shot from the rebound just went wide of the post. The women did get one goal back with three minutes to go when Shannon was taken down in the area and stood up to score the resultant penalty

However, it was too little too late and time ran out with Ross holding out to lift a cup that they themselves could hardly believe

Cup Final squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Breda Cushen, Tia Byrne, Eimear Whelan, Sarah Merrigan, Kelli Maguire, Shannon McGovern, Mary Boland, Amie Walsh (Leanne Kenny) Ciara Ryan (Shauna McGovern)

FAI Women’s Intermediate Cup Second Round

Newpark AFC (Carlow League)  4  Tombrack United  1

The Women travelled to Kilkenny on May 20th to take on Carlow Premier Division winners Newpark FC in the second round of the FAI Intermediate Cup. This was always going to be a big game for the women against a very physical side who had only conceded two goals in the league all season. Sarah Merrigan gave Tombrack a well deserved lead and although the home side came into the game and scored twice before half time, our Women were still well in the game. The second half saw Tombrack fall away against the much stronger Newpark side who scored two more to achieve a flattering 4-1 win. 

Tombrack will now take on Clane United in the last sixteen of the FAI Intermediate Shield with the game scheduled for Sunday July 8th

Schoolgirls Under Eighteen Seven a Side Shield Final

Tombrack United  1  St Leonards  0  aet

Our Under Eighteen girls rounded off their season with silverware when a Kelli Maguire goal in extra time saw the girls overcome league champions St Leonards 1-0. In a very close game where chances were few and far between, both defences were on top although Leanne in the goal pulled off one excellent save just before half time. No goals in normal time saw the game go to extra time where Kelli sent a well struck shot to the back of the net two minutes into the second period. St Leonards worked hard to get back into the game but Tombrack stood strong to keep them at bay and hold on for a well deserved win. Breda Cushen picked up a well earned player of the match award as league committee member Sarah Merrigan presented the Shield to the victorious side. Well done Pat and girls on a great achievement
