Wexford Football League Divsion One

Tombrack United  4  Glynn Barntown  0

A strong opening twenty minutes saw Tombrack do enough in this game to secure the three points they needed to strenghten their chances of staying in the division and with New Ross Celtic losing to Bridge Rovers, this win over Glynn Barntown proved to be enough to keep their place in the division for next season

The opening five minutes were nervous although Tombrack did enjoy the greater possession with Evan Maher, Kevin Kenny and Josh McMullen all crossing dangerous balls into the area where Mattie Hendrick and Eoghan Murphy both saw chances either well saved or just off target. On Seven minutes, the lads went in front when a well struck shot from Darragh Hendrick, struck the net and skimmed into the back of net. Five minutes later, Bob Newe performed one of his spectacular bicycle kicks on the edge of the box to make it 2-0 and on fifteen minutes, Eoghan Murphy got on the end of a Kevin Kenny cross to knock the ball into the net

Due to the extreme heat, the game stopped for a water break and Tombrack did not really return to the pitch and allowed Glynn Barntown back into the game with Aaron Breslin having to make two good saves while Bob Newe and James Coleman having to intervene to clear balls off the line.

Tombrack took control again in the second half and went in search of the goal that would finish the game off and it came with twenty minutes to go when John Coleman swung in a dangerous corner and James Coleman rose highest to head to the net. Bob and Savo both went close before the end as the game played to the final whistle and a long wait of fifteen minutes to get the news that New Ross Celtic had lost 3-2 to Bridge Rovers, a result that ensured our lads remain in this division

Credit must be given to this group of players for their battle to avoid the drop, winning four and drawing one of their six games since lockdown, form that would have seen them push for promotion if they had produced this form in the games before COVID-19 struck. Well done to Willie and his squad on what can now be described as a transition season that has seen several younger players move into the squad

The lads now have one game left away to North End United, a vitally important game for the Wexford town side who still need a point to clinch the title after they lost 4-2 to Ferns today
