Wexford Football League Division One

Cloughbawn AFC  2  Tombrack United  2

The men's first team were given a view of how tough life is going to be in Division One this season when they travelled to Clonroche and came away with a point after a hard fought incident filled encounter against a very hard working Cloughbawn side. The first half was evenly contested with defences dominating and keeping clearcut chances to a minimum with Tombrack probably just about shading the possession. The breakthrough came on twenty four minutes when Tombrack were awarded a free when Kevin Kenny was hauled to the ground with Richie O Hara firing the resultant free kick into the area where James Coleman was on hand to nod the ball to the net when it came back off the keeper.

The home side took control early in the second half and pushed hard to get back on level terms, upping the intensity of the game and making life very difficult for the visitors defence with Aaron Breslin making one excellent save and Dane McGarry clearing off the line before Cloughbawn eventually scored in the seventieth minute and then again four minutes later to lead 2-1. This forced the lads into action and came in search of an equaliser and with three minutes to go, were awarded a controversial penalty which Bob Newe stepped up to take, saw his effort well saved but Kevin Coleman was on hand to hammer home the rebound

This would not have been one of this teams better performances and were fortunate to come away with a point but the team did show great character and while it was a fortunate point, the lads can be proud of their efforts in staying in the game when under pressure

All players worked hard but Aaron Breslin, Matthew Hendrick and Kieran Kenny all impressed on the day

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Castledockrell United  1  Tombrack United  1

Our youthful second team opened their season with a local derby when they made the short journey to Ballycarney to take on Castledockrell United. In a match that ebbed and flowed with several minor flashpoints, Tombrack took an early lead when Jamie Walshe scored after just five minutes and the lads were well deserving of that lead as they battled strongly in the opening forty five minutes with Conor Kehoe playing well until he had to leave at half time with Alan Owens taking his place for the second.

It was very much a defensive effort from the lads in the second forty five minutes and it looked as if they might have done enough to hang on to the three points until the home side scored with five minutes remaining to earn a point

Local derbies are always going to be tough so our managers were happy to pick up a point away from home in their opening game of the season and definitely have a squad capable of competing in this division 

Youths go down to Bohs in season opener

Wexford Football League Division Two

Tombrack United  0  Wexford Bohs  3

Our Youths team fell to their first defeat in over thirty months when going down 3-0 to a very competent Wexford Bohs side who were a little more clinical in front of goal. Tombrack started the game well and for the opening ten minutes were comfortably in control although were unable to make it count and slowly but surely, Bohs pulled themselves into the game and began to press forward with the Tombrack defence and keeper Even Murphy having to work hard to keep them at bay. Midway through the half, the visitors took the lead when their speedy centre forward broke away from the defence and slotted the ball past Murphy. Tombrack played some of their best football in the remainder of the half but found the Bohs defence difficult to break down and went in at the break still behind to that single goal

The home side played much better in the opening exchanges in the first half, with Josh McMullan and Harry Fitzgibbon both bringing good saves from the keeper. Twenty minutes into the second half disaster struck when the visitors broke down the left wing and crossed for their forward to fire to the net and with ten minutes to go the game ended as a contest when Bohs slotted home their third

This was not one of the Youths team best performances but they came up against a very strong Wexford Bohs side and while it is disappointing to start the season with a defeat, their is still a long way to go in the season and this side are definitely capable of challenging for honours

Carlow Over Thirty Five Cup Quarter Final

Tombrack United  2  Vale Wanderers  8


A disastrous first half performance saw Tombrack trail 5-0 to a very strong clinical Vale Wanderers who were very capable of punishing the home side for any errors. The difference between the sides was that Tombrack did create chances but did not take them while Vale were very sharp when given the opportunity. Best chance of the half for Tombrack fell to Ray Murphy who saw his effort just graze the outside of the post

The second half saw the home side much more competitive with Barry McDermott going close before Noel Roche curled a long range shot to the top corner to put Tombrack on the scoresheet. Minutes later, Noel saw his well struck effort bring a fantastic save from the Vale keeper while Martin Doyle and Joe Goodall saw efforts closed down

Keeper Obi Kavanagh came forward for a corner but his acrobatic effort was blocked down by the visitors defence but moments later, Aidan Allen got his head to a cross to nod the ball into the corner of the net

Vale did continue to press forward and three further goals saw them comfortably progress to the semi finals of the Carlow Cup on an 8-2 scoreline

Tombrack were disappointed to fall to such a heavy defeat in their final game of the season but overall were happy with there first season at this level of the game and some of the players are already looking forward to next season

Well done to everyone involved throughout the season and congratulations to Obi Kavanagh who picked up the club player of the year award and to Mick Kenny who collected a very popular and well deserved club merit award

Celebrations are planned for next Saturday at 9pm in Colemans where the season shall surely be discussed and analysed in great detail

Well done to everyone involved on what has been a very enjoyable season with special mention to Noel, Obi and Martin who played in the clubs first game in August 1991, who would have thought all three would have been playing in August 2018 !!!

Squad: Obi Kavanagh, David Kennedy, Martin Kenny, Joe Goodall, Darren Quinn, Jonathan Dempsey, Martin Doyle, Mick Kenny, David Fox, Noel Roche, Barry McDermott, Aidan Allen, Ray Murphy

Carlow Over Thirty Five Division Two Cup Quarter Final

Tombrack United  1  Village FC  1

After a hard working and committed performance, Tombrack bowed out of the Over Thirty Five Division Two Cup on penalties after a highly competitive 1-1 draw in Ballyboy yesterday evening. Both these sides have been evenly matched in recent games, with the most recent league match being a scoreless draw, and this game was no different as both sides produced a highly entertaining cup tie

Tombrack were on top for the opening exchanges but could not breakdown a well organised Village defence with Joe Goodall and David Fox both having shots well saved while at the other end, the home defence dealt with any attacks the visitors threw at them. The breakthrough came on twenty five minutes when Martin Doyle headed a well struck Joe Goodall corner to the back of the net. However, the lead was shortlived as two minutes later, Village were back on level terms when they got in behind the defence and their centre forward gave Obi Kavanagh no chance with a well struck effort

Both sides worked hard for the winner in the second half but basically cancelled each other out with the game going to penalties where two good saves by the Village keeper proved decisive as they ran out 3-2 winners to book their place in the next round.

Tombrack were disappointed to be knocked out but overall can be proud of a hard working determined performance and will now face Vale Wanderers next Friday in the quarter finals of the Carlow Over Thirty Five Cup

Team: Obi Kavanagh, Darren "Dingo" Quinn, Willie Breen, Martin Kenny, David "Buggy" Kennedy, Fergus Turner, Joe Goodall, Martin Doyle, Barry McDermott, David Fox, Mick Kenny, Ray Murphy, Noel Roche, Aidan Allen, Joe Newe, Anton Treacy
