Wexford Football League Premier Division

Tombrack United  0  Gorey Celtic  1

The highs and lows of life in the Premier Division became evident in Ballyboy this morning when bottom club Gorey Celtic and snatched a 1-0 win. After the exciting 2-1 win away to New Ross Celtic last Sunday, Tombrack were fully aware that Gorey Celtic would not be a pushover but the home side still did enough in the match to wrap up the three points but missed chances proved crucial in the end.

After the opening fifteen minutes, both sides had created chances but both goalies dealt comfortably with what was thrown at them and as the first half wore on, Tombrack became more in control and both Eoin Carton and Kevin Coleman went close while James Coleman also saw his shot go just wide. The first half ended scoreless and early in the second half, Eoin Carton saw his effort scrambled away but minutes later, disaster struck when a break down the left wing was crossed into the box and the incoming midfielder gave Paul Darcy no chance with his well placed header.

Tombrack did try to get back into the game but Celtic now had the upperhand and were reluctant to relinquish their lead and kept Tombrack at bay for the remainder of the match to collect their first three points of the season.

Best for the lads on the day were Paul Darcy, Rory Newe and Darragh Hendrick

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Enniscorthy United  4  Tombrack United  1

Our men's second team were much closer to Enniscorthy United than the scoreline suggests but they are still finding it difficult to break this losing streak and will need to put a winning run together soon or they will end up in a serious relegation battle. The home side led 2-1 at the break with John Kavanagh on target for Tombrack but two second half goals for Enniscorthy killed off the visitors challenge

Women's Divisional Shield Quarter Final

Tombrack United  8  New Ross Town  1

The women booked their place in the semi final of the Divisional Shield when proving too strong for a youthful New Ross Town side who are a much better side than the scoreline suggests. The opening ten minutes of the game were scrappy enough but an excellently struck shot from Kelli Maguire, followed by goals from Shannon McGovern and Marie Allen quickly had Tombrack in control. A Sarah Merrigan penalty and some dogged hard work by Shannon, which saw her find space in the six yard box and score, saw the Women go in 5-0 up at the break. 

The second half saw Kelli continue her good performance with two well taken goals while Mary Boland also scored for Tombrack to lead 8-0. New Ross Town were rewarded for their hard work when Amy Lawlor scored near the end but Tombrack go into Wednesday evening's semi final draw

After the poor start, the overall team performance was much better and were fully deserving of the win

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Breda Cushen, Sarah Merrigan, Tia Byrne, Kelli Maguire (Hannah Kilbride), Mary Boland (Katie O Toole), Marie Allen (Kelly Murphy), Becky Connaughton (Leanne Kenny), Shannon McGovern, Amie Walsh
