Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Tombrack United  4  Bridge Rovers  8

Our Under Fourteen schoolgirls went into this game as league leaders but a disappointing first half performance saw them go 5-0 behind to second placed Bridge Rovers and left themselves with an incredible hill to climb in the second half. Tombrack needed a point to wrap up the title while the visitors needed all three points and from the moment the game kicked off, it was Bridge who started best and were rewarded with an almost unassailable lead. Goals from Abbie Walsh and Tara Kenny brought the game back to 5-2 at the break. Both sides traded goals in the second half with Ana Dragusan and Amy Tobin Cosgrave on target for the home side while a further three goals for Rovers saw them win 8-4 and clinch the Division Two B title with Tombrack wrapping up runners up spot

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Eighteen League

Bunclody AFC  6  Tombrack United  0

An undertrength Under Eighteen side travelled to Bunclody and gave the home side a couple of scares before the lack of numbers finally showed and Bunclody secured the three points they needed to wrap up the title. Tombrack worked hard in the early part of the game and were unfortunate not to be ahead as they created some good chances but once the home side got in control, they did enough to wrap up the game and the Under Eighteen league title

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  0

A determined hard working display from our men's team saw them eventually secure their fifth win of the season, remain unbeaten and move to within two points of leaders Kilmore United when they overcame New Ross Town with a goal five minutes from the end. Town started well and the lads had to defend strongly to keep them at bay and it was fifteen minutes before Tombrack got through on goal with Mattie Hendrick, Niall Maher and Rory Newe all going close. Both sides were pressing for the winner in the second half with defences dominating, James Coleman and Bob Newe, both worked hard to keep Town at bay. The breakthrough came in the eighty fifth minute when Jamie Walsh, got on the ball in the penalty area but found himself being shepherded away by his marker, but Jamie managed to turn back into the area and fired an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net. Town came in search of an equaliser but Tombrack held firm and could have increased their lead when Kevin Kenny saw his long range shot drift wide of the goal with the Ross keeper still in the Tombrack penalty area. A hard earned victory but a very important three points earned with grit and determination and the lads now move onto their next league match. Kieran Kenny picked up two nasty knocks in the game and hopefully he will only be out short term, if at all

Wexford Football League Division Four A

St Leonards  5  Tombrack United  2

All the goals came in the first half of this game with Tombrack scoring the first and last. Harry Fitzgibbon gave Tombrack the lead on ten minutes but some good work by the home side, who are challenging for the title, saw them score five in a thirty minute spell before some good work by Paul Browne saw him bring it back to 5-2. Tombrack were much better in the second half with William Dunne going close on a couple of occasions and overall it was a good performance by a side missing a load of players for various reasons and hopefully will be back to full strength next week

Wexford Women's League Divisional Shield Quarter Final

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  2

Our Women bowed out of the Shield at the Quarter Final stage when beaten by a hard working New Ross Town side, played on a decent pitch but in atrocious conditions. Neither side could get a foothold on the game early on until five minutes before half time, Becky Connaughton was taken down in the box and Sarah Merrigan slotted home the resultant penalty. New Ross Town showed their usual never say die attitude and mid way through the second half they were back on level terms with a well struck free kick. Tombrack did create chances but failed to take them and with ten minutes to go, the visitors went in front and hung on to that lead to book their place in the last four

 

 

Good win for Under 15 boys

Under Nine Schoolgirls

Our youngest girls team made the short journey to Bunclody and  produced another good performance, well done to everyone involved

Under Fifteen Schoolboys Division Two

Ferns United  1  Tombrack United  6

Under Fifteen manager Bob Newe had a full squad to pick from when he travelled to Ferns and came away with all three points after an excellent performance. Tombrack led 4-0 at the break thanks to goals from Danny Dreelan, Stephen O Toole, Danny Ascott and Conor O Toole and continued their dominance in the second half with further goals from Niall Mimnagh and Rashid. Ferns did score a late consolation but this performance proved what this team is capable of when at full strength

Wexford Football League Youths Division Two

Tombrack United  1  Enniscorthy United  5

In a game played in difficult weather conditions, the game was much closer than the scoreline would suggest with only a goal between the sides with fifteen minutes to go. Both these sides played some thrilling games at both Youth and Under Sixteen level last season and although the visitors ran out comfortable winners in the end in this game, both sides were equally matched for long periods of the game. Enniscorthy led 2-1 at the break with David Power scoring for the home side and although Tombrack pressed hard for the equaliser in the second half, the visitors defended well and scored a further three goals in the last fifteen minutes to wrap up the three points

Men through in LFA Junior Cup after torrid battle

Under Eleven Schoolgirls Premier Division

Tombrack United 1 New Ross Town 2

Our Under Eleven girls have been very competitive in the premier division but are getting no luck as they fell to their third defeat of the season. New Ross Town would be one of the challengers for the title but Tombrack battled with them to the end with Erin Tobin scoring for the home side but the visitors did enough to leave Ballyboy with a vital three points

Sunday October 28th

Mens LFA Junior Cup First Round

Tombrack United 4 Dingle United (AUL) 2

A strong determined, well organised and disciplined performance from our men's team saw them overcome AUL Premier A side, Dingle United, 4-2 in a torrid game that ended very badly for the visitors. Dingle started well and for the opening twenty minutes they dominated the game and looked like they could overrun a lack lustre home side who had not really came to grips with the pace of the game. Despite, Dingle going in front, Tombrack dug deep and began to produce the football they are capable of and were rewarded with a well taken goal from Kevin Kenny just before half time. A strong start in the second half saw an in form Matthew Hendrick score twice to put the home side 3-1 ahead but Dingle stayed in the game with a goal on the hour mark. Tombrack were now pushing strongly and when a defender deflected a Rory Newe effort to the net to lead 4-2, the visitors lack of discipline proved costly as the remaining twelve minutes saw them have four players sent off and just managed to have enough players to legally finish the game. It was Tombrack's discipline and organisation that saw them come through this game against a very well respected AUL side and the home side are well deserving of their place in the second round where they will travel to take on Trinity Donaghmede from the Leinster Senior League

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United 0 Cloughbawn AFC 8

"We played s****e" was the disappointed report that came back from one of the men's second team managers as they were totally overrun by a very strong Cloughbawn side who currently sit top of the table. Our lads struggled to compete with the physical challenge of the visitors but it will depend what can be taken from the experience and now have two weeks to get prepared for their next league game

Wexford Women's League Division Two

Stoney LFC 0 Tombrack United 2

Our Women bounced back from their opening day defeat to Bunclody as a good overall team performance saw them come away from Horetown, always a tricky place to win, with all three points. Tombrack controlled the game for long periods of time but found a well organised home defence difficult to break down and the game remained scoreless at the break. After hitting the post and bringing two good saves from the keeper, Tombrack eventually broke the deadlock on seventy four minutes when Becky Connaughton made space for herself and fired the ball to the roof of the net. Stoney tried to press forward for an equaliser but found the Tombrack defence unbreakable and when Shannon McGovern went on one of her runs, she found space to shoot to the net in the ninety first minute and insure the three points.

Under Twelve Division Two A

Tombrack United  2  Kilmore United  1

Our under Twelve girls made it three wins from three games when they had to work very hard to overcome a resilient Kilmore side. Ana Dragusan continued her good scoring form with a goal after fifteen minutes but Kilmore were back on level terms within five minutes, however, Tombrack pressured for the winner and were rewarded five minutes from the end when Ana scored her second of the game

Under Eighteen League

Bree United  3  Tombrack United  1

Our Under Eighteen girls title ambitions suffered a set back last week when they travelled to Bree and lost out 3-1 to a physically stronger home side. Bree took an early lead but Lucy Kemple quickly got Tombrack back on level terms, however, the home side continued to press forward and retook the lead just before half time and a goal midway through the second half wrapped up the three points for the home side

Sunday October 21st

FAI Junior Cup Third Round

Forth Celtic 6  Tombrack United  2

Premier side Forth Celtic proved too strong for our lads in the FAI Junior Cup and booked their place in the fourth round courtesy of this 6-2 win. It was only in the last twenty minutes that the home side pulled away as Tombrack only trailed 2-1 at half time with Matthew Hendrick scoring for our lads and a goal early in the second half from James Coleman kept Tombrack in touch. With twenty minutes to go, Forth pulled away to eventually win out 6-2

LFA Junior Shield Second Round

Derry Rovers (CCFL) 4 Tombrack United 1

Our B team made the long journey to Edenderry for this LFA Junior Shield game and got off to the worst possible start when going 3-0 behind in the opening twenty minutes. The lads became a little more competitive after that and pulled one back when Jamie Murphy scored a spectacular long range effort but the home side had the final say when they scored late in the game to book their place in the third round
