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


Good wins for mens teams as women fall to first defeat of the season

Wexford Football League Division One

New Ross Celtic  0  Tombrack United  1

A massive performance from our men's first team saw them come away from New Ross Celtic with three points and remain unbeaten with four wins and a draw from their five games played so far. Ten minutes into the game, the lad were dealt a severe blow when Dane McGarry was sent off for two yellow cards and things got worse seven minutes when Kevin Coleman picked up a nasty knee injury and had to be taken off. Tombrack worked very hard for the remainder of the half and were rewarded for their endeavours when James Coleman got on the end of a Rory Newe corner to knock the ball home. Despite the numeric disadvantage, the lads never allowed Celtic to settle into the game, defending well when needed but also creating chances of their own and were unlucky not to double their advantage as the half wound down. Manager Willie Maher was delighted with the work rate of the whole squad and while there are still fifteen games to go, the team sit top of the table and must be considered serious contenders for the title at this stage. The lads now head into an FAI Junior Cup game away to Forth Celtic next Sunday and an LFA Junior Cup game at home to Dingle United the following week

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  6  Enniscorthy Town  3

This relegation six pointer was filled with incident and entertainment as the men's second team picked up a valuable three points as they overcame Enniscorthy Town 6-3. The lads started well with Josh McMullen finding the net after just six minutes although Town got back on level terms shortly after. Savo returned to the playing field with a goal on the twenty minute mark although the visitors refused to lie down and got back on level terms once again before they were reduced to ten players when one of their players was sent off for retaliation. David Power restored Tombrack's lead just before the break and although Enniscorthy Town did get a goal in the second half, Tombrack were dominant with further goals from Savo, David Power and one from Jamie Murphy gave the lads a well deserved and well earned three points

Wexford Women's League Division Two

Bunclody AFC  4  Tombrack United  2

In a very scrappy encounter between two equally matched sides, our Women's team could never get a grip on the game and allowed the home side to dictate the pace and despite Shannon McGovern giving Tombrack the lead, Bunclody got back on level terms just before half time. Bunclody went in front early in the second half, and as Tombrack came in search of an equaliser, they were continually caught on the break by a hard working home side who scored twice more to increase their lead to 4-1. Tombrack did have chances with Katie O Toole almost scoring with her first touch when she came on as sub while Nicola Ryan saw her shot just go wide of the post. Sarah Merrigan did find the net but it was too little too late as Bunclody held on for the three points. This was one of the teams more disjointed performances but is another step in the progress of the team who now find themselves in a higher standard division where every game will be a test, but one the players are well capable of passing

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin (Katie O Toole), Ciara Ryan, Tia Byrne (Eimear Whelan), Amie Dreelan, Shannon McGovern, Shauna McGovern (Marie Allen), Becky Connaughton (Louise Jordan), Sarah Merrigan, Leanne Kenny, Nicola Ryan (Amie Walsh), Emer Hughes

Under Eleven Schoolgirls Premier Division

Tombrack United  0  Ballindaggin FC  1

In an end to end game played in difficult conditions, our Under Eleven girls were victim to a late goal scored by an experienced Ballindaggin side with minutes to go. Tombrack were well in this game and only some strong defending from the visitors kept them from going ahead while at the other end, the home defence was well in control and restricted Ballindaggin to long range efforts. The game seemed to be heading for a scoreless draw but a rare lack of concentration in the Tombrack defence allowed Ballindaggin in to score the only goal of the game. The home side will feel unlucky not to have taken at least a point from the game but the girls once again proved that they are well capable of playing in this highest level. Well done to both sides, managers and parents for coming out in what were very wet difficult conditions

Under Fourteen Schoolgirls Division Two B

Rosslare Rangers  3  Tombrack United  7

Our Under Fourteen girls made the long journey to Rosslare and despite the poor weather and being low on numbers they came away with the three points and sit top of the table with three wins from three games. While they did concede three goals, they never looked in danger and were always in control with Ana Dragusan, Zoe Tobin Cosgrave and Tara Kenny all scoring two each while Amy Tobin Cosgrave also got her name on the scoresheet. This win puts our girls in a very strong position in the table with one game remaining. Well done to all players, managers and parents who made the long journey to Rosslare on a wet an miserable Saturday morning

All Schoolboys games were called off due to weather
