Wexford Football League Divsion One

Tombrack United  4  Glynn Barntown  0

A strong opening twenty minutes saw Tombrack do enough in this game to secure the three points they needed to strenghten their chances of staying in the division and with New Ross Celtic losing to Bridge Rovers, this win over Glynn Barntown proved to be enough to keep their place in the division for next season

The opening five minutes were nervous although Tombrack did enjoy the greater possession with Evan Maher, Kevin Kenny and Josh McMullen all crossing dangerous balls into the area where Mattie Hendrick and Eoghan Murphy both saw chances either well saved or just off target. On Seven minutes, the lads went in front when a well struck shot from Darragh Hendrick, struck the net and skimmed into the back of net. Five minutes later, Bob Newe performed one of his spectacular bicycle kicks on the edge of the box to make it 2-0 and on fifteen minutes, Eoghan Murphy got on the end of a Kevin Kenny cross to knock the ball into the net

Due to the extreme heat, the game stopped for a water break and Tombrack did not really return to the pitch and allowed Glynn Barntown back into the game with Aaron Breslin having to make two good saves while Bob Newe and James Coleman having to intervene to clear balls off the line.

Tombrack took control again in the second half and went in search of the goal that would finish the game off and it came with twenty minutes to go when John Coleman swung in a dangerous corner and James Coleman rose highest to head to the net. Bob and Savo both went close before the end as the game played to the final whistle and a long wait of fifteen minutes to get the news that New Ross Celtic had lost 3-2 to Bridge Rovers, a result that ensured our lads remain in this division

Credit must be given to this group of players for their battle to avoid the drop, winning four and drawing one of their six games since lockdown, form that would have seen them push for promotion if they had produced this form in the games before COVID-19 struck. Well done to Willie and his squad on what can now be described as a transition season that has seen several younger players move into the squad

The lads now have one game left away to North End United, a vitally important game for the Wexford town side who still need a point to clinch the title after they lost 4-2 to Ferns today

Wexford Schoolgirls League Division Two B

Tombrack United  2  Cushinstown AFC  0

Our Under Fourteen girls continued their good run of form and moved top of the table after they overcame a determined hard working Cushinstown in Ballyboy yesterday evening. This game was never going to be easy but Tombrack started strongly and their own work ethic was enough to eventually get them the three points that keeps them ahead of Coolboy and Corach. Eabha Guinan and Ana Dragusan both got on the scoresheet, scoring the vital goals, but it was an overall strong team performance and a result that could prove crucial as get close to the end of a very long season.

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  0  Bridge Rovers  0

An exciting end to end entertaining encounter saw Tombrack and Bridge play out a scoreless draw where both sides could have sneaked a win but were probably happy with a point at the final whistle. The first half was cagely contested with neither side taking control and neither goalkeeper had to make any dramatic saves although both sets of defences had to work hard to keep their opposition at bay. The best two chances of the half for Tombrack fell to Josh McMullen, who broke through the tight Rovers defence twice but the angle was too tight to find a way past the keeper. Mattie Hendrick also got his head to a Kevin Kenny cross but could not get enough power to guide it toward the goal.

Both sides upped the tempo in the second half with Bridge enjoying the best of the early stages and probably should have went ahead when they broke through but saw their effort go wrong side of the post. As the game moved into the final quarter, Tombrack became more dominant and pressed forward in numbers with Evan Maher linking up well to put Jamie Walshe into space but the ball went wide. With five minutes remaining, Jamie had a goal bound shot well saved by the Rovers keeper and minutes later, his low shot brought another good save from the keeper

This display was one of the best out of the team all season and all twelve players can all be credited with a massive effort and definitely deserved a point from this game, and it could be a point that will prove crucial in the long run

A big game at home to Glynn Barntown on Sunday at 11am will be followed by a tough game away to North End United, a team who could be champions by then, or could be looking for a point, a very interesting few weeks ahead but based on tonights performance, this team do not deserve to go down to Division Two

Team: Evan Murphy, Dane McGarry, Kevin Kenny, Bob Newe, James Coleman, David Power, Darragh Hendrick, John Coleman, Mattie Hendrick (Evan Maher), Josh McMullen, Jamie Walshe

Men's B team end season with battling display

Wexford Football League Division Five

Glynn Barntown  4  Tombrack United  2

Tombrack second team completed their 2019-20 season with a defeat in Mayglass against a Glynn Barntown team who got promoted courtesy of this win but can count themselves fortunate to have taken all three points against a hard working Tombrack side who had no subs, a problem that proved costly in the end. The lads started well and were matching the home side for the opening twenty minutes and went ahead when Eoghan Murphy was taken down in the box and Kevin Kenny converted the resultant penalty. The home side worked hard to get back into the game and were rewaarded on thirty two minues when a good movement allowed them space in the area to slot past Evan Murphy in the goal. Five minutes later a through ball from Eoghan Murphy put Rashid through on goal and the youngest player on the pitch kept a calm head to lob the ball over the advancing keeper and six minutes later, Eoghan himself lobbed the keeper just to see the ball hit the post. 

Two quick goals midway through the second half saw the home side go 3-2 ahead but Tombrack were unlucky not to level as James Kavanagh, Conor Byrne and Daniel Vickers all went close. Another goal near the end gave Glynn Barntown the three points they needed to get promoted but as this squad prepares for the new season, all three games have shown their potential as their end of season run in saw them play the teams that came first, third and fourth

Best for Tombrack in this game were Aaron Dobbs, James Kavanagh and Conor Byrne but it was overall a strong team performance with all eleven contributing

Team: Evan Murphy, Sean Murtagh, Conor Byrne, Ryan Dobbs, Aaron Dobbs, Mikey Roche, Kevin Kenny, James Kavanagh, Daniel Vickers, Eoghan Murphy, Rashid Yasim
