Results Catch Up

Published: Sunday, 03 June 2018 19:43

Due to work commitments, I have been away from this for a few days, so now I am going to do my best to catch up on all outstanding results, ranging from the bad, to the disappointing to celebration

Men’s Premier Division Relegation Play Off

Tombrack United  0  New Ross Celtic 4

At this stage this is old news but needs to be recorded none the less. After just one season, the men’s first team dropped out of the Premier Division and back to Division One where a mid season slump proved to be very costly. After three tough games at the start, the lads began to pick up points with wins over Courtown Hibs and Moyne Rangers being the highlights, however as the season wore on, injuries and players missing at crucial times, saw some disappointing defeats against Bridge Rovers and Corach Ramblers in particular.

With the season moving to a close, the lads battled hard to retain their place, securing a late equaliser against Ross Celtic in Ballyboy which forced a relegation play off against the same opposition in Shamrock Rovers pitch a week later.

This game was a step too far and Celtic showed their capabilities and experience as they ran out 4-0 winners in a game that Tombrack struggled to get a grip on, this defeat saw the lads go back to Division One automatically, ironically, to be joined a week later by Ross Celtic who lost the play off proper 2-1 to Forth Celtic

While it was disappointing to drop back after just one year, it will depend on how well the lads can react now and are well capable of battling for promotion again if they can get the attitude right from the start. They can be proud of their efforts in the Premier Division and showed in several games that they can compete at this level and hopefully will be back again in the not too distant future

 

Women’s Nolan Health and Fitness Cup Final

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  2   aet

In a strange cup final played in Moyne Rangers pitch, the Women took on a rejuvenated New Ross Town but fell short in extra time to a Town side who just would not give up. Tombrack controlled the game for long periods and it was always felt that the goal was going to come to go in front, but it never did, despite Shannon, Sarah, Leanne and player of the match (for Tombrack), Mary Boland all going close, hitting the post three times, seeing balls scrambled off the line, fingertip saves from the Ross keeper as the opposition goal lived a charmed life

Carlow Over Thirty Five League Division Two

 

Village FC  2  Tombrack United  1

 

Two first half strikes from outside the penalty area saw Village FC take all three points in this very entertaining league match in Bagenalstown where for various reasons, Tombrack only had ten players but still produced one of their best performances to date

The home side started well but found a resilient and determined Tombrack defence difficult to break down with Willie Breen, Darren Quinn and Martin Kenny all working hard to keep them at bay before a well struck volley on fourteen minutes eventually beat David Kennedy to put Village 1-0 up

Megan's late winner wraps up Under Eleven title

Wexford Schoolgirls League Division One

Bridge Rovers  0  Tombrack United  1

A late late strike from Megan Hayes saw our Under Eleven girls clinch the Schoolgirls Division One title when they overcame closest challengers Bridge Rovers in Castlebridge this evening. The girls started the game well and never allowed the home side to settle and although they could not break down the well organised Rovers defence, Tombrack were happy with their first half performance. The home side did look dangerous on the break but Tombrack were always in control with Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave, Kate Tomkins and Marita McCrea all going close but still not breaking down the Rovers defence until the final few seconds when Megan's well struck shot found the back of the net, securing the three points the girls needed to wrap up the league title

League Secretary Martin Cahill was on hand to present the league trophy to the victorious side. Well done to Martin, Angela, Rebecca and all the girls on a fantastic season showing great character to go into the final three games needing to win them all to secure the title and that is exactly what they did

Squad: Eabha Gahan, Marita McCrea, Kayla Roche, Kate Tomkins, Mehan Hayes, Makayla Tobin Cosgrave, Emer Roche, Ciara Kenny, Lara Murphy, Rachel McCrea, Erin Tobin, Saoirse Byrne, Lilly Peacock, Riona Byrne, Jenna Campbell Scully

Management: Martin Doyle (Manager), Coaches: Angela Tomkins and Rebecca Doran Doyle

Jamie's late late goal sets up play off

Published: Sunday, 13 May 2018 20:47

Wexford Football League Premier Division

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Celtic  1

As this game headed into injury time, Tombrack looked to be heading down to Division One as Celtic were leading 1-0 and looked set to achieve the victory that would see them at worst, play Forth Celtic in the play off. However, deep in injury time, Jamie Walshe, who had just came on as a sub, got his head to a long throw from Stephen Ryan and beat the keeper to break the visitors hearts and set up a play off with the same opposition again next Sunday

In a game of few chances for either side, Celtic looked the slightly more nervous but did play some decent football and definitely should have taken the lead on ten minutes when their forward fired wide with everyone beaten. Tombrack settled more into the game after that with Richie O Hara having his effort well saved as the home side looked to be more interested in pressing forward. 

Twenty minutes into the second half, Celtic took the lead when Tombrack failed to clear a corner and the ball found its way to the net. The visitors closed down the game once they got in front and prevented Tombrack building any momentum but the lads showed wonderful character, never giving up and were rewarded with the injury time goal which earned Tombrack a play off against Celtic next Sunday at 10am in Shamrock Rovers ground. Well done to Joe, Willie and all the lads as the dream remains alive

 

Wexford Women's League Division Two

Courtown Hibs  0  Tombrack United  1

After last weeks heroics in Forth Celtic, the women were a bit more lacklustre in their final league match of the season away to Courtown Hibs. Tombrack were the dominant side in the first half and could have led 3-0 as Amie, Becky and Mary B all brought excellent saves from the young home goalkeeper. However, on the half hour mark, she spilled a ball from a Becky shot which Mary B was on hand to slot into the empty net

The second half was a more defensive set up from Tombrack as they frustrated the home side into long range efforts with Ashling having to make two top class saves, one which was a one handed effort which she tipped over the crossbar. In the end Tombrack held on for a well deserved three points in a game where neither side were really up for it as both have important cup games coming up

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Breda Cushen, Eimear Whelan, Tia Byrne, Sarah Merrigan, Kelli Maguire, Becky Connaughton, Mary Boland, Amie Walsh (Katie O Toole), Ciara Ryan, Leanne Kenny
