Good start for Schoolgirls continues

Saturday September 22nd

Under Sixteen Schoolgirls Premier Division

Tombrack United  1  Bunclody AFC  0

These two sides have played out some cracking games in recent years and this one was no exception as a moderately understrength home side did enough to take a vital three points against a hard working Bunclody side. Both sides were evenly matched in the opening exchanges but it was Tombrack who created the chances and on the twenty minute mark, Lucy Kemple shot to the net to give them a deserved lead. Bunclody worked tirelessly to get back on level terms but found the home defence difficult to break down as they were restricted to chances from long range which were comfortably dealt with. Midway through the second half, the girls were reduced to nine when Amy Tobin Cosgrave had to come off injured but Tombrack showed great character as they worked extremely hard to hold on to their lead and at the end, take a well earned three points with Shauna McGovern putting in a tremendous player of the match performance

Under Twelve Schoolgirls Division Two A

Tombrack United  6  Shelburne United  0

Our Under Twelve girls kicked off their season with a win as they overcame Shelburne in a game where the scoreline did not do justice to the hard work of the visitors. Three goals in each half saw Tombrack well in control as they put in an overall strong team performance, defence and keeper keeping Shelburne at bay while the midfield and forwards created several chances for the home side. Ana Dragusan scored four while Anna Tompkins and Ciara Kenny were also on target for the girls

Under Nine Schoolgirls

Our youngest schoolgirls team played an exciting fast paced encounter against an equally matched St Josephs side. The five Tombrack girls can be proud of their performance on the day and if any other young girls would like to join the clubs most exciting young team, contact manager Angela Tomkins or any committee member. Players who took to the field on this wet Saturday morning were Kate Tomkins, Riona Byrne, Nessa Byrne, Rachel McCrea and Ella Murphy

Youths unlucky as Under Fourteen girls win

Wexford Football League Youth Division Two

Tombrack United  2 Shamrock Rovers  3

These two sides have played some close fought encounters in recent years and this game was no exception. The game opened with Rovers conceding a penalty early on and having a player sent off but unfortunately, it was not converted and minutes later, Tombrack conceded a penalty and also had a player dismissed, only Rovers did convert. Ten minutes later they were 2-0 up with a well taken goal, a lead they held until the break. They made it 3-0 shortly after but a goal from David Power brought Tombrack into the game and constant pressure saw Jack Salt score to set up an exciting final few minutes but Rovers did enough to hang on for the three points

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Tombrack United  3  Bree United  2

Our Under Fourteen girls opened their season with a win as they overcame Bree in a five goal thriller. The two sides traded goals to be tied at 2-2 with Ana Dragusan scoring both the home sides goals and they took all three points when Zoe Tobin Cosgrave scored with seven minutes to go for a well deserved win

Men move to top of Division One

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  2  Campile United  1

Our men's first team continued their good start to the season when overcoming leaders Campile United in an exciting fast paced game where the lads fitness proved crucial in the end. Tombrack took an early lead on five minutes when a Kevin Kenny corner was forced to the net by Kevin Coleman and that lead should have been increased when Kevin Kenny was taken down in the box but the Campile keeper saved Kevin Coleman's penalty. Richie O Hara went close, once again bringing a good save from the in-form keeper.

At the other end, the back four of Dane McGarry, Niall Maher, James Coleman and Kevin Kelly dealt with anything Campile had to offer until early in the second half, a well struck effort from thirty yards out hit the back of the net to bring the sides level. This spurred the lads into action and some constant pressure saw Niall Maher and Kevin Coleman making the keeper work before James Coleman looped a header over the keeper into the net for what proved to be the winner

This was easily the best performance of the three games so far with all fifteen players working hard for the three points with Kevin Kelly, Dane McGarry and Kevin Coleman all standing out

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Taghmon United  4  Tombrack United  2

Injuries, first team call ups and a GAA match saw our B team travel to Taghmon slightly understrength but still gave a good account of themselves and were unlucky not to secure a point. The first twenty minutes were evenly contested but a poorly timed tackle saw Tombrack concede a penalty which was converted but they got an opportunity to get back level minutes later when awarded a penalty themselves but James Hendrick saw his effort well saved. Taghmon scored either side of half time to lead 3-0 but Tombrack came back strong with Harry Fitzgibbon going close before David Power pulled one back and five minutes later, William Dunne sent a twenty five yard shot to the bottom corner. The home keeper pulled off a finger tip save from Harry before they wrapped up the points with a controversial late goal to make it 4-2

Overall a decent performance from the lads who have shown in all three games that they are well capable of competing in this division

Overall good weekend with three wins from three

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  2  Gorey Celtic  0

The lads produced one of their best performances in several months when they picked up three points against a Gorey Celtic side who created chances but on the day had their keeper to thank for keeping the score at 2-0. The opening exchanges were scrappy with neither side able to put their stamp on the game and chances were reduced to long range efforts. Tombrack eventually got a grip on the game with James Coleman, Kevin Kenny and Richie O Hara all going close and they definitely should have been ahead while the visitors looked dangerous on the break and did have opportunities to go in front

Five minutes from half time, Tombrack got the break they deserved when a weaving run up the wing by Kevin Kenny, saw him get into the penalty area where he was taken down and referee Kieran Dunne had no hesitation awarding a penalty which Kevin Coleman calmly slotted into the bottom corner, although the keeper will feel disappointed he did get a hand to it

Tombrack continued to press forward in the second half, although Celtic did work hard in an effort to get back into the game although the home defence kept them at bay and midway through the half, Kevin Kenny crossed from the left and Rory Newe was on hand to shoot to the net. Kevin Coleman and Richie O Hara brought two excellent saves while goal provider Kevin Kenny was unlucky not to score himself when he saw his shot go just wide of the post

Overall manager Willie Maher was happy with an important three points which moves them into the top half of the table, tucked in just behind leaders Campile and St Cormacs. A good team performance with good individual performances from Darragh Hendrick, Kevin Coleman and Bob Newe

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  2  Killenagh Wanderers  1

The men's second team also moved up the table after a strong first half performance saw them overcome Killenagh 2-1. A mixture of youth and experience combined to take three points against a visiting side who struggled to contend with the speed of Harry Fitzgibbon, Josh McMullan and James Kavanagha and the experience of Jamie Walsh, Eoghan Murphy and Paul Browne. Two well worked moves midway through the first half saw Fitzgibbon provide two crosses for McMullan to fire to the net for a well deserved 2-0 half time lead

Killenagh did pull one back in the second half but Tombrack kept control of the game with Walsh, Kavanagh, Murphy and David Fox all going close to increasing the home sides lead but in the end, the lads were happy with the win and move into a challenging position behind the leaders

Wexford Youth Division Two

Tombrack United  5  Curracloe United  3

Our Youths bounced back from their opening day defeat to Wexford Bohs with a good 5-3 win over a decent Curracloe side who came from 2-0 down to level before a quick goal restored Tombrack's lead just before the break. Two further goals in the second half saw the lads lead 5-2 and although Curracloe did pull one back with minutes remaining, the lads were never in any danger of letting the game slip at that stage. Josh McMullan and Jack White scored two each with Harry Fitzgibbon also finding the net.
