Bressie saves the day

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  1  Moyne Rangers B  0

The men moved back to the top of Division One after they eventually picked up all three points against a dogged Moyne Rangers side who defended well to keep Tombrack at bay. The home side were the more dominant in the first half and the Moyne goal led a charmed life as chances from Kevin Coleman, Kevin Kenny and Eoin Carton were either saved by the visitors keeper or went just off target and just before half time, Tombrack should have went ahead but the ball was eventually scrambled clear. Continued pressure in the second half eventually paid off midway through when Kevin Coleman back heeled to the net in a crowded area and the introduction of Jamie Walsh and John Coleman seemed to inject enough energy into the side to comfortably see out the game. However, Moyne pressed strongly near the end and two minutes into injury time, were awarded a controversial penalty for an alleged push but Tombrack keeper Aaron Breslin was equal to the task and got down to his left to push the ball with the referee sounding the final whistle moments later

This was a hard working performance from the lads and one that was not pretty to watch at times but these are the points that can prove important at the end of the season with the lads remaining unbeaten and joint top of the table with Cloughbawn who beat former leaders St Cormacs 2-0

This match also saw former Tombrack manager Joe Newe return to Ballyboy when he came on as a sub for Moyne midway through the second half


Wexford Football League Division Four A

St Josephs  4  Tombrack United  0

Our second team had to rely on some of our more "experienced" club members when they travelled to St Josephs with an injury stricken side and picked up some injuries in the game as well. A strong first half performance saw the home side score four goals in a twenty five minute period which left Tombrack with an uphill battle and although they dug deep in the second half, they did well to keep the score at 4-0 with keeper Conor Kehoe the busiest man on the pitch, putting in a man of the match performance for the visitors. Further injuries in the match saw Tombrack have to limp their way to the final whistle and will need to now regroup for their next match next Sunday. With the youths on the team having to play a Leinster Youth Cup game yesterday, it was always going to be difficult to put in two heavy performances in consecutive days

Women's Divisional Shield Group C

Tombrack United  6  Cushinstown AFC  0

The Women comfortably qualified for the quarter finals of the Divisional Shield when overcoming a young Cushinstown side who had no answer to the constant firepower of the home side. From the opening whistle, Tombrack went on the attack and the visitors keeper did well to keep the sides level until Sarah Merrigan eventually broke the deadlock tn minutes in. Five minutes later, Leanne Kenny found the net with a well struck shot and minutes later Amie Dreelan saw her well struck shot deflect off a defender and into the net to record her first goal with the women and end the game as a contest. Two well taken goals from Shannon McGovern prompted several substitutions as Tombrack continued to press forward with Becky Connaughton and Nicola Ryan both going close. Amie Walsh got her name on the scoresheet early in the second half when she guided Becky's corner into the net with the game been blown up shortly after. 

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin (Marie Allen), Ciara Ryan (Aoife Newe), Tia Byrne, Amie Dreelan, Shannon McGovern (Emer Hughes), Sarah Merrigan (Amie Walsh), Becky Connaughton, Shauna McGovern, Leanne Kenny, Nicola Ryan

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Cushinstown AFC  1  Tombrack United  5

Our Under Fourteen girls moved to the top of the table when they overcame a young Cushinstown side 5-1 in this refixed game. Two goals from Ana Dragusan and one each from Eadhba Guinan, Zoe Tobin Cosgrave and Abbie Walsh gave the girls their second win of the season


Mixed bag of results

Published: Saturday, 06 October 2018 21:13

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Twelve Division Two A

Moyne Rangers  2  Tombrack United  5

Our Under Twelve girls made it two wins from two games and Ana Dragusan continued her good dcoring form as she scored four for the second match in a row. Tombrack were always in control in this game and although Moyne battled strongly they found Ana's accuracy in front of goal very difficult to handle while Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave is showing herself to be very comfortable at this age group as she also got her name on the scoresheet. This makes it two wins from two for the girls and has them currently top of the table 

Wexford Schoolboys Under Fifteen Division Two

Shelburne United  2  Tombrack United  1

A dogged battle between two good footballing sides saw our Under Fifteen boys just miss on at least a point as they went down 2-1 in Ballywilliam. Our lads were well in contention in this game and created several chances but the home side held on to secure the three points. Ryan Hayes was on target for Tombrack

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Sixteen Premier Division

Forth Celtic  3  Tombrack United  0

Our Under Sixteen girls put up an incredibly brave performance against title holders Forth Celtic before going down 3-0. Only nine players travelled for this game but all nine worked hard for the eighty minutes and were unlucky to concede the three goals at crucial points in the first half. The second half performance was much better and not only did they defend strongly, they created chances of their own and will feel unfortunate not to have at least found the net once. This division is still wide open with several vital games to be played but it is vital that the team can pull together sufficient numbers to compete

Youths bow out of LFA Youth Cup after brave effort

O Neills LFA Youth Cup First Round


St Josephs AFC (Carlow)  3  Tombrack United  1


A hard working well orgnanised home side came from behind to overcome a young Tombrack in Tinryland in this O Neills LFA Youth Cup first round tie. After a scrappy opening ten minutes where chances were at a minimum, it was Tombrack who went closest when Josh McMullan saw his effort just clear the crossbar with the home keeper well beaten. The Wexford league side were dealt a blow when having to make a substitution after just fifteen minutes when Jack Salt replaced the injured Thomas Fitzgerald and his proved to be an inspired move, as minutes later, the substitute beat the keeper to the ball and shot to net from a difficult angle

The Carlow side came in search of an equaliser and went close close through efforts from Matthew Delaney, who headed just wide, and Corey Kelliher who saw his shot well saved by Evan Murphy.

Almost on the half hour mark, St Josephs were rewarded when Sam Byrne,beat the offside trap to found himself free on goal and gave Murphy no chance with his well-placed shot to the bottom corner. They could have been ahead a minute later when a well struck shot from Kelliher, bounced awkwardly in front of the Tombrack keeper and he did well to scramble the ball clear for a corner. Continued pressure from the home side saw them eventually go in front when Jonah Dunne rose highest in a crowded penalty area to head a Cian Shannon cross to the back of the net three minutes before the break

The second saw Tombrack improve dramatically with Evan Maher in midfield becoming more dominant with Harry Fitzgibbon and Josh McMullan combining well to create problems for the home defenders. The best chance of an equaliser came when Padraig Nolan worked his way down the right wing, his accurate pass finding McMullan who had the ball scrambled away before he could shoot

With five minutes to go, Tombrack got caught on the break and St Josephs booked their place in the second round when sub Dylan McDermott found himself in acres of space and gave Murphy no chance with his well struck effort. Harry Fitzgibbon almost had the final say for Tombrack but his shot went just outside the post.


St Josephs Blue AFC: Ross Mannion, Robert Timmons, Jack Murphy, Ben Murphy, Matthew Delaney, Daniel Nolan, Jonah Dunne, Cian Shannon, Sam Byrne, Even Maguire, Corey Kelliher, Dylan McDermott, Ryan Kelly, Rory Guerr, Jamie Stafford, Sam Byrne O Dwyer


Tombrack United: Evan Murphy, Padraig Nolan, Thomas Jeffers, Patrick O Toole, Ciaran Nolan, David Power, Jack White, Evan Maher, Josh McMullan, Thomas Fitzgerald, Harry Fitzgibbon, Hassid Yasin, William Kenny, Jack Salt, Sean Murtagh

Schoolgirls Under Eleven Premier Division

Curracloe United  3  Tombrack United  0

Our Under Eleven girls opened their campaign in the top division of the league when they took on last season's double winners and despite going down 3-0, the girls can be proud of their performance. After an evenly contested first half, Curracloe eventually broke the deadlock just before half time when eventually finding away past Tombrack keeper Eadbha Guinan while Ciara Kenny was unlucky not to bring the sides level when her shot skimmed the crossbar minutes later. Curracloe scored early in the second half and were awarded a late penalty to wrap up a 3-0 victory although Tombrack almost had the final say when Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave saw her shot just go wide of the post


Schoolboys Under Twelve

Taghmon United  2  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Twelve boys opened their league season with a well earned draw away to Taghmon United with the home side scoring in the dying seconds to deny our lads all three points. Tombrack led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Alex Kavanagh and Rian Buttle but a strong fight back from the home side saw them pull one back midway through the half before finding the net late to grab a point

Schoolboys Under Fourteen

Stoney LFC  7  Tombrack United  3

A very understrength Under Fourteen side travelled to Stoney and despite being outnumbered by the home side, they were well in contention for long periods of the game before eventually being broken down late in the game. Darragh Breen gave the lads the lead after just a minute and second half goals from Daire Moynihan and Ryan Hayes kept the lads in touch, missing a penalty which could have really put pressure on the home side, before Stoney scored in the last minute to kill off a brave effort form the lads

Schoolboys Under Sixteen

Tombrack United  0  Wexford Albion 8

Wexford Albion proved far too strong for our Under Sixteen boys and ran out comfortable winners against a hard working home side. Albion were strong in numbers and used the roll on / roll off substitution rule to its fullest advantage. To our lads credit, they continued to work hard but found the Wexford town side just too much to handle on the day

Schoolgirls Under Eighteen

Tombrack United  6  Carnew FC  0

The Under Eighteen girls proved much too strong for Carnew and picked up the three points with a comfortable 6-0 win. The home side were always in control and keeper Leanne Kenny was never troubled as a hat trick each from Becky Connaughton and Nicola Ryan wrapped up victory for Tombrack

FAI Junior Cup Second Round

Curracloe United  2  Tombrack United  3  aet

Tombrack looked to be cruising to the third round of the FAI Junior Cup when they were leading 2-0 but took their foot off the pedal in the final ten minutes and allowed Curracloe back into the game. With some changes forced on manager Willie Maher due to injury and illness, the lads still controlled the game with goals from Kevin Coleman and Eoin Carton putting them comfortably in control. However a lapse of concentration in the last ten minutes allowed a resilient Curracloe side back into the game and two quick goals got them back on level terms and brought the game to extra time. Mattie Hendrick became the hero as Tombrack took control in the extra time and his goal was enough to put Tombrack through to the third round

LFA Junior Shield First Round

Tombrack United  2  Bree United  1  aet

Our B team caused a minor upset in the Leinster Junior Shield when a hard working performance saw them eventually book their place in the second round draw with a goal three minutes from the end of extra time. An evenly contested opening twenty minutes saw both sides creating several chances and the game could have been 4-4 after half an hour before Bree eventually broke the deadlock when their forward got in behind our defence. Tombrack went in search of an equaliser and were rewarded just before half time when Harry Fitzgibbon was on hand to capitalise on a goalkeeping error to shoot to the net and bring the sides level. Tombrack dominated the second half with Josh McMullan, David Fox, James Kavanagh and Harry Fitzgibbon all going close and bringing saves from the excellent Bree keeper. No goals saw the game move to extra time where Tombrack continued to press against a tiring Bree side until three minutes from time, some persistent work by player of the match William Dunne saw him fire the ball to the back of the net from outside the area for what proved to be the winning goal

Womens Divisional Shield Group C

All Blacks  0  Tombrack United  4

The Women travelled to All Blacks in the Shield with some experienced faces and some new players and despite a shaky start, they eventualy took control of the game and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Tombrack started well but failed to break down the home defence and could have fell behind themselves when an All Blacks free kick hit the crossbar but after that scare, the girls took control and went ahead when a good combination of play from Shauna McGovern and Becky Connaughton put Shannon McGovern through to angle the ball past the keeper. On the stroke of half time, a diagonal pass from Becky put Nicola Ryan through and she made no mistake as she hammered the ball past the keeper for her first goal for the women. The second half saw Tombrack dominate with Shannon going through to score her second while Becky, Marie Allen and Louise Jordan all brought saves from the keeper before Becky broke through late in the game, bringing a good save from the keeper but Ciara O Sullivan was on hand to tap home the rebound. All Blacks almost had the final say but Ashling Kavanagh saved well to keep them at bay. Under the circumstances, this was an outstanding performance from the whole squad but Amie Dreelan and Becky Connaughton were both exceptional on the day

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Ciara Ryan, Sarah Merrigan (Ciara O Sullivan), Amie Dreelan, Becky Connaughton, Leanne Kenny, Shauna McGovern (Louise Jordan), Shannon McGovern, Amie Walsh (Marie Allen), Nicola Ryan (Aoife Newe)
