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.

Opening day draws for Mens teams

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
