Saturday February 9th

Schoolboys Under Twelve Division Three

Tombrack United  2  Gorey Rangers B  0

Our Under Twelve boys remain unbeaten and moved second in the table after this 2-0 win at home to Gorey Rangers. This very talented side always looked in control of the game and were well deserved winners with a goal in each half, Eoin Tomkins in the first half with Adam Byrne securing the three points with a well taken penalty in the second half. 

Schoolboys Under Sixteen Division Two A

Wexford Celtic B  3  Tombrack United  2

For the second time, Wexford Celtic overcame our Under Sixteen boys on a 3-2 scoreline in a game where our lads will feel unfortunate to have not taken at least a point. After a scoreless first half, Celtic took a 2-0 lead before Evan Maher pulled one back for Tombrack. Celtic restored their two goal advantage but Nathan Kelly brought the lads back into the game and the home side had to defend strongly to hang on for the three points

Creane and Creane Wexford Cup Third Round

Tombrack United  3  Corach Ramblers  3  aet (Corach won 4-2 on penalties)

With the squad still missing key players due to injury and sickness, Tombrack showed great character and effort to come from behind twice to force the game into penalties. Played on an good surface but in a difficult wind, both sides effectively cancelled each other out in the first half with chances few and far between with Mattie Hendrick going closest for Tombrack when his well struck shot hit the side netting while his brother Darragh brought a good save from the Corach keeper ten minutes before the break. At the other end, the Premier side were reduced to long range efforts and free kicks which were comfortably dealt with by the home sides keeper and defence

The second half saw Corach start the better and were 1-0 up after seven minutes and when they scored again twelve minutes later, it looked like Tombrack's brave efforts were in vein. However with fifteen minutes to go, Eoin Carton got on the end of a through ball and kept his nerve to slot the ball past the advancing keeper and ten minutes later, Josh O Byrne got on the end of an Aaron Breslin kick out, managed to create space for himself on the edge of the area and curled the ball into the far corner of the net for a well deserved equaliser. In between both goals, Corach had the opportunity to wrap up the game when awarded a penalty but was missed when the spot kick cleared the crossbar

Extra time saw Ramblers go in front again when awarded another penalty which was scored but Tombrack kept working to get back on level terms and the visitors keeper had to be brave when racing out to just beat Eoin Carton, picking up an injury in the process. As the game moved towards the final whistle, it seemed Corach had did just enough to scrape through but four minutes into injury time, Jamie Walshe whipped in a ferocious free kick which Eoghan Murphy headed into the net

The game moved to penalties where the visitors keeper saved two spot kicks to see his side go through 4-2 on penalties. With ten league games left, Tombrack are well in the running for promotion and will have a busy few months but if they continue to show this level of character in games, they will make life difficult for all. Kieran Kenny, Jamie Walshe and Darragh Hendrick all stood out in an overall strong team performance

Wexford Womens Cup Second Round

Ferns United  8  Tombrack United  0

As our Women continue to rise through the ranks in the lower divisions, a test against Premier leaders and near neighbours Ferns United was always going to be a stiff test and one that our team were looking forward to. As would be expected, the clinical finishing of the home side would always be a factor and difficult to handle and such was the case when after a strong opening fifteen minutes, Ferns scored twice in quick succession and twice more before the break to lead 4-0. Two early goals in the second half killed the game off but Tombrack continued to work hard with Shauna McGovern tireless in midfield. Two final goals saw Ferns run out 8-0 winners in this first ever competitive meeting between the two sides but Tombrack can take a lot of positives from the game and as they continue to climb through the league system, they now know what they need to do if they reach the top division. Shannon McGovern and Kelli Maguire did have chances but the Ferns defence managed to avert any danger. The team and management must be commended on their attitude in the build up to this game as they looked forward to the challenge of taking on a team who have been top of the game in the league for the past fifteen years. 

The club would also like to take this opportunity to wish Aimee Dreelan and Becky Connaughton the best of luck as they head off to Wexford Youths Under Seventeen for the upcoming season. Following on from last seasons signings of Shannon McGovern and Breda Cushen to the same squad and Kevin Kenny signing to the Under Nineteen boys this season, Tombrack can be proud of its contribution to the game at National level

The above picture sees Becky and Aimee being presented with a cake by their team mates on the Women's team before their transfer forms go through tomorrow

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  1  Castledockrell United  1

As the team head into their final four games of the season. our B team are locked in a relegation battle and will need to win at least two of their remaining games to have any chance of survival in this division. In a game of few chances, Tombrack did manage to go in front in this game courtesy of a well taken goal by Jamie Murphy but near neighbours Castledockrell continued to work hard and were rewarded with a goal midway through the second half to give them a point. Both sides could have done with the win but had to be content with a draw as the strong breeze did little to help the game flow
