Schoolgirls Under Eleven Premier Division

Curracloe United  3  Tombrack United  0

Our Under Eleven girls opened their campaign in the top division of the league when they took on last season's double winners and despite going down 3-0, the girls can be proud of their performance. After an evenly contested first half, Curracloe eventually broke the deadlock just before half time when eventually finding away past Tombrack keeper Eadbha Guinan while Ciara Kenny was unlucky not to bring the sides level when her shot skimmed the crossbar minutes later. Curracloe scored early in the second half and were awarded a late penalty to wrap up a 3-0 victory although Tombrack almost had the final say when Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave saw her shot just go wide of the post

 

Schoolboys Under Twelve

Taghmon United  2  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Twelve boys opened their league season with a well earned draw away to Taghmon United with the home side scoring in the dying seconds to deny our lads all three points. Tombrack led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Alex Kavanagh and Rian Buttle but a strong fight back from the home side saw them pull one back midway through the half before finding the net late to grab a point

Schoolboys Under Fourteen

Stoney LFC  7  Tombrack United  3

A very understrength Under Fourteen side travelled to Stoney and despite being outnumbered by the home side, they were well in contention for long periods of the game before eventually being broken down late in the game. Darragh Breen gave the lads the lead after just a minute and second half goals from Daire Moynihan and Ryan Hayes kept the lads in touch, missing a penalty which could have really put pressure on the home side, before Stoney scored in the last minute to kill off a brave effort form the lads

Schoolboys Under Sixteen

Tombrack United  0  Wexford Albion 8

Wexford Albion proved far too strong for our Under Sixteen boys and ran out comfortable winners against a hard working home side. Albion were strong in numbers and used the roll on / roll off substitution rule to its fullest advantage. To our lads credit, they continued to work hard but found the Wexford town side just too much to handle on the day

Schoolgirls Under Eighteen

Tombrack United  6  Carnew FC  0

The Under Eighteen girls proved much too strong for Carnew and picked up the three points with a comfortable 6-0 win. The home side were always in control and keeper Leanne Kenny was never troubled as a hat trick each from Becky Connaughton and Nicola Ryan wrapped up victory for Tombrack

FAI Junior Cup Second Round

Curracloe United  2  Tombrack United  3  aet

Tombrack looked to be cruising to the third round of the FAI Junior Cup when they were leading 2-0 but took their foot off the pedal in the final ten minutes and allowed Curracloe back into the game. With some changes forced on manager Willie Maher due to injury and illness, the lads still controlled the game with goals from Kevin Coleman and Eoin Carton putting them comfortably in control. However a lapse of concentration in the last ten minutes allowed a resilient Curracloe side back into the game and two quick goals got them back on level terms and brought the game to extra time. Mattie Hendrick became the hero as Tombrack took control in the extra time and his goal was enough to put Tombrack through to the third round

LFA Junior Shield First Round

Tombrack United  2  Bree United  1  aet

Our B team caused a minor upset in the Leinster Junior Shield when a hard working performance saw them eventually book their place in the second round draw with a goal three minutes from the end of extra time. An evenly contested opening twenty minutes saw both sides creating several chances and the game could have been 4-4 after half an hour before Bree eventually broke the deadlock when their forward got in behind our defence. Tombrack went in search of an equaliser and were rewarded just before half time when Harry Fitzgibbon was on hand to capitalise on a goalkeeping error to shoot to the net and bring the sides level. Tombrack dominated the second half with Josh McMullan, David Fox, James Kavanagh and Harry Fitzgibbon all going close and bringing saves from the excellent Bree keeper. No goals saw the game move to extra time where Tombrack continued to press against a tiring Bree side until three minutes from time, some persistent work by player of the match William Dunne saw him fire the ball to the back of the net from outside the area for what proved to be the winning goal

Womens Divisional Shield Group C

All Blacks  0  Tombrack United  4

The Women travelled to All Blacks in the Shield with some experienced faces and some new players and despite a shaky start, they eventualy took control of the game and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Tombrack started well but failed to break down the home defence and could have fell behind themselves when an All Blacks free kick hit the crossbar but after that scare, the girls took control and went ahead when a good combination of play from Shauna McGovern and Becky Connaughton put Shannon McGovern through to angle the ball past the keeper. On the stroke of half time, a diagonal pass from Becky put Nicola Ryan through and she made no mistake as she hammered the ball past the keeper for her first goal for the women. The second half saw Tombrack dominate with Shannon going through to score her second while Becky, Marie Allen and Louise Jordan all brought saves from the keeper before Becky broke through late in the game, bringing a good save from the keeper but Ciara O Sullivan was on hand to tap home the rebound. All Blacks almost had the final say but Ashling Kavanagh saved well to keep them at bay. Under the circumstances, this was an outstanding performance from the whole squad but Amie Dreelan and Becky Connaughton were both exceptional on the day

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Ciara Ryan, Sarah Merrigan (Ciara O Sullivan), Amie Dreelan, Becky Connaughton, Leanne Kenny, Shauna McGovern (Louise Jordan), Shannon McGovern, Amie Walsh (Marie Allen), Nicola Ryan (Aoife Newe)
