Under Fourteen Schoolboys

Gorey Celtic  6  Tombrack United  0

A long season finally came to an end for Bob Newe and his Under Fourteen side when they travelled to league leaders Gorey Celtic on Friday evening where they were beaten 6-0. Our lads played well in patches and were not as far behind the home side as the scoreline might suggest but it was Celtic's clinical finishing that proved the difference between the sides. Bob was delighted with the attitude of his players through a long season and although they were not challenging for silverware at the end, the have shown themselves to be a competitive side

Under Fifteen Schoolboys

Gorey Celtic  5  Tombrack United  0

An understrength Tombrack side travelled to Gorey Celtic on Saturday and despite not having the numbers, played very well before going down to a very good home side. Despite not having a full side, manager Martin Kenny was happy with how his players battled against the home side with all nine putting in a massive effort. Well done to all who travelled to Gorey and they now have two games left to complete a long season

Carlow League Over Thirty Five Division Two

Tombrack United  1  Castlewarren Celtic  3

Our Over Thirty Five side completed their first round of games on Saturday evening but despite a good opening twenty minutes where the lads competed well with the visitors, a lack of concentration allowed Castlewarren to take the lead and Tombrack struggled to come to terms with the game after that. It was probably Tombrack's poorest performance of the season to date but also played some good football in patches and a lot of positives could be taken from the game. Fergus Turner scored a goal late in the game as his resilient style of play saw him break down a solid Castlewarren defence. The lads head to Village FC next Saturday as they look to gain revenge for the opening day 5-1 defeat

Under Sixteen Girls close gap at top of table

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Sixteen Premier Division

Bunclody AFC  0  Tombrack United  3

Our Under Sixteen girls made the short journey to Bunclody yesterday evening and after a tough physical encounter left with the three points that moves them into serious contention to retain their Premier title. An evenly matched first half saw both sides create chances but defences dominated and no goals were scored although Tombrack will feel they had done enough to be in front. With Leanne out injured, Mary Claire played in goal and pulled off some very important saves and vital points of the game as events began to turn in favour of Tombrack

Lucy eventually broke the deadlock when her inswinging corner was not dealt with defensively and ended up in the net. A few minutes later, Tombrack were awarded a penalty, much to the home sides disgust and Becky stepped up and slammed the spot kick home and with a few minutes remaining, Rebecca Kavanagh, who was making her debut, headed the ball to the net to wrap up a well earned three points after a strong overall team performance where the girls had to dig deep to come away with victory

Two big games remain, at home to Forth Celtic and away to St Leonards and wins in both will ensure at minimum a play off. Best of luck Mary, Marie and the girls as they prepare for these two vital encounters

Busy four days see men still battling heading into final day

Sunday May 6th

Bunclody AFC  5  Tombrack United  3

Sunday saw the lads travel to Bunclody for a game looking for three points that would have been a major help in their battle against relegation. However, it was not to be their day as the home side raced into a 2-0 lead after just fifteen minutes and although Richie O Hara scored twice to bring the sides back level, Bunclody scored again just before the break to lead 3-2. They enjoyed the better of the second half and led 5-2 when Tombrack's hopes were severely dented when Eoin Carton was sent off for a second yellow card. Tombrack did have the final say when Mick "Savo" Kelly scored late in the game but the lads left Bunclody still deadlocked with New Ross Celtic in the battle against relegation

Women's Divisional Shield Semi Final

Forth Celtic  2  Tombrack United  1

The Women travelled to high flying Forth Celtic to take on the home side in the much delayed Divisional Shield semi final and in a game played in scorching hot sunshine and on a big pitch, Tombrack put in one of their best performances of the season before unluckily bowing out to the Division Two A champions. Tombrack started the game at a furious pace and never allowed the home side to settle and restricted them to long range efforts which Ashling and the defence handled comfortably while also pressing forward with Mary Boland, Shannon and Katie all creating problems for the Forth defence. Disaster struck for Tombrack in the second minute of injury time in the first half when a low shot found its way to the corner of the net

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  1  Cloughbawn AFC  5

The men's second team ended their season this evening as they went down 5-1 to Cloughbawn but John Brownrigg's players had already done enough to secure safety in the division long before this game. Eoghan Murphy scored for Tombrack but it was not enough against a strong Cloughbawn side who took control to run out comfortable winners. At the end of the game, John announced he was standing down as manager, a position he has held for three seasons, gaining two promotions and the club would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his hard work over those years

Schoolboys Under Twelve

Tombrack United  2  Wexford Bohs  0

Our Under Twelve boys finished off their season in fine style, picking up three wins in a row to finish mid-table. Stephen O Toole scored both goals for Tombrack against an understrength Bohs side who had their keeper to thank for keeping the scoreline to just 2-0. Bob was delighted with how his young side rounded off the season and was very proud of their end of season run of form. Well done to Bob, Dave and all his players on a great season

Schoolgirls Under Fourteen

Tombrack United  1  Moyne Rangers  5

The Under Fourteen Schoolgirls hit a blip in their quest for the league title when a strong second half performance from the visitors saw Moyne Rangers come from 1-0 down to go away comfortable 5-1 winners. Zoe Tobin Cosgrave had given Tombrack the lead in a closely contested first half but Moyne put in a strong second half performance to
