Good wins for mens teams as women fall to first defeat of the season

Wexford Football League Division One

New Ross Celtic  0  Tombrack United  1

A massive performance from our men's first team saw them come away from New Ross Celtic with three points and remain unbeaten with four wins and a draw from their five games played so far. Ten minutes into the game, the lad were dealt a severe blow when Dane McGarry was sent off for two yellow cards and things got worse seven minutes when Kevin Coleman picked up a nasty knee injury and had to be taken off. Tombrack worked very hard for the remainder of the half and were rewarded for their endeavours when James Coleman got on the end of a Rory Newe corner to knock the ball home. Despite the numeric disadvantage, the lads never allowed Celtic to settle into the game, defending well when needed but also creating chances of their own and were unlucky not to double their advantage as the half wound down. Manager Willie Maher was delighted with the work rate of the whole squad and while there are still fifteen games to go, the team sit top of the table and must be considered serious contenders for the title at this stage. The lads now head into an FAI Junior Cup game away to Forth Celtic next Sunday and an LFA Junior Cup game at home to Dingle United the following week

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  6  Enniscorthy Town  3

This relegation six pointer was filled with incident and entertainment as the men's second team picked up a valuable three points as they overcame Enniscorthy Town 6-3. The lads started well with Josh McMullen finding the net after just six minutes although Town got back on level terms shortly after. Savo returned to the playing field with a goal on the twenty minute mark although the visitors refused to lie down and got back on level terms once again before they were reduced to ten players when one of their players was sent off for retaliation. David Power restored Tombrack's lead just before the break and although Enniscorthy Town did get a goal in the second half, Tombrack were dominant with further goals from Savo, David Power and one from Jamie Murphy gave the lads a well deserved and well earned three points

Wexford Women's League Division Two

Bunclody AFC  4  Tombrack United  2

In a very scrappy encounter between two equally matched sides, our Women's team could never get a grip on the game and allowed the home side to dictate the pace and despite Shannon McGovern giving Tombrack the lead, Bunclody got back on level terms just before half time. Bunclody went in front early in the second half, and as Tombrack came in search of an equaliser, they were continually caught on the break by a hard working home side who scored twice more to increase their lead to 4-1. Tombrack did have chances with Katie O Toole almost scoring with her first touch when she came on as sub while Nicola Ryan saw her shot just go wide of the post. Sarah Merrigan did find the net but it was too little too late as Bunclody held on for the three points. This was one of the teams more disjointed performances but is another step in the progress of the team who now find themselves in a higher standard division where every game will be a test, but one the players are well capable of passing

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin (Katie O Toole), Ciara Ryan, Tia Byrne (Eimear Whelan), Amie Dreelan, Shannon McGovern, Shauna McGovern (Marie Allen), Becky Connaughton (Louise Jordan), Sarah Merrigan, Leanne Kenny, Nicola Ryan (Amie Walsh), Emer Hughes

Under Eleven Schoolgirls Premier Division

Tombrack United  0  Ballindaggin FC  1

In an end to end game played in difficult conditions, our Under Eleven girls were victim to a late goal scored by an experienced Ballindaggin side with minutes to go. Tombrack were well in this game and only some strong defending from the visitors kept them from going ahead while at the other end, the home defence was well in control and restricted Ballindaggin to long range efforts. The game seemed to be heading for a scoreless draw but a rare lack of concentration in the Tombrack defence allowed Ballindaggin in to score the only goal of the game. The home side will feel unlucky not to have taken at least a point from the game but the girls once again proved that they are well capable of playing in this highest level. Well done to both sides, managers and parents for coming out in what were very wet difficult conditions

Under Fourteen Schoolgirls Division Two B

Rosslare Rangers  3  Tombrack United  7

Our Under Fourteen girls made the long journey to Rosslare and despite the poor weather and being low on numbers they came away with the three points and sit top of the table with three wins from three games. While they did concede three goals, they never looked in danger and were always in control with Ana Dragusan, Zoe Tobin Cosgrave and Tara Kenny all scoring two each while Amy Tobin Cosgrave also got her name on the scoresheet. This win puts our girls in a very strong position in the table with one game remaining. Well done to all players, managers and parents who made the long journey to Rosslare on a wet an miserable Saturday morning

All Schoolboys games were called off due to weather

Bressie saves the day

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  1  Moyne Rangers B  0

The men moved back to the top of Division One after they eventually picked up all three points against a dogged Moyne Rangers side who defended well to keep Tombrack at bay. The home side were the more dominant in the first half and the Moyne goal led a charmed life as chances from Kevin Coleman, Kevin Kenny and Eoin Carton were either saved by the visitors keeper or went just off target and just before half time, Tombrack should have went ahead but the ball was eventually scrambled clear. Continued pressure in the second half eventually paid off midway through when Kevin Coleman back heeled to the net in a crowded area and the introduction of Jamie Walsh and John Coleman seemed to inject enough energy into the side to comfortably see out the game. However, Moyne pressed strongly near the end and two minutes into injury time, were awarded a controversial penalty for an alleged push but Tombrack keeper Aaron Breslin was equal to the task and got down to his left to push the ball with the referee sounding the final whistle moments later

This was a hard working performance from the lads and one that was not pretty to watch at times but these are the points that can prove important at the end of the season with the lads remaining unbeaten and joint top of the table with Cloughbawn who beat former leaders St Cormacs 2-0

This match also saw former Tombrack manager Joe Newe return to Ballyboy when he came on as a sub for Moyne midway through the second half


Wexford Football League Division Four A

St Josephs  4  Tombrack United  0

Our second team had to rely on some of our more "experienced" club members when they travelled to St Josephs with an injury stricken side and picked up some injuries in the game as well. A strong first half performance saw the home side score four goals in a twenty five minute period which left Tombrack with an uphill battle and although they dug deep in the second half, they did well to keep the score at 4-0 with keeper Conor Kehoe the busiest man on the pitch, putting in a man of the match performance for the visitors. Further injuries in the match saw Tombrack have to limp their way to the final whistle and will need to now regroup for their next match next Sunday. With the youths on the team having to play a Leinster Youth Cup game yesterday, it was always going to be difficult to put in two heavy performances in consecutive days

Women's Divisional Shield Group C

Tombrack United  6  Cushinstown AFC  0

The Women comfortably qualified for the quarter finals of the Divisional Shield when overcoming a young Cushinstown side who had no answer to the constant firepower of the home side. From the opening whistle, Tombrack went on the attack and the visitors keeper did well to keep the sides level until Sarah Merrigan eventually broke the deadlock tn minutes in. Five minutes later, Leanne Kenny found the net with a well struck shot and minutes later Amie Dreelan saw her well struck shot deflect off a defender and into the net to record her first goal with the women and end the game as a contest. Two well taken goals from Shannon McGovern prompted several substitutions as Tombrack continued to press forward with Becky Connaughton and Nicola Ryan both going close. Amie Walsh got her name on the scoresheet early in the second half when she guided Becky's corner into the net with the game been blown up shortly after. 

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin (Marie Allen), Ciara Ryan (Aoife Newe), Tia Byrne, Amie Dreelan, Shannon McGovern (Emer Hughes), Sarah Merrigan (Amie Walsh), Becky Connaughton, Shauna McGovern, Leanne Kenny, Nicola Ryan

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Cushinstown AFC  1  Tombrack United  5

Our Under Fourteen girls moved to the top of the table when they overcame a young Cushinstown side 5-1 in this refixed game. Two goals from Ana Dragusan and one each from Eadhba Guinan, Zoe Tobin Cosgrave and Abbie Walsh gave the girls their second win of the season


Mixed bag of results

Published: Saturday, 06 October 2018 21:13

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Twelve Division Two A

Moyne Rangers  2  Tombrack United  5

Our Under Twelve girls made it two wins from two games and Ana Dragusan continued her good dcoring form as she scored four for the second match in a row. Tombrack were always in control in this game and although Moyne battled strongly they found Ana's accuracy in front of goal very difficult to handle while Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave is showing herself to be very comfortable at this age group as she also got her name on the scoresheet. This makes it two wins from two for the girls and has them currently top of the table 

Wexford Schoolboys Under Fifteen Division Two

Shelburne United  2  Tombrack United  1

A dogged battle between two good footballing sides saw our Under Fifteen boys just miss on at least a point as they went down 2-1 in Ballywilliam. Our lads were well in contention in this game and created several chances but the home side held on to secure the three points. Ryan Hayes was on target for Tombrack

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Sixteen Premier Division

Forth Celtic  3  Tombrack United  0

Our Under Sixteen girls put up an incredibly brave performance against title holders Forth Celtic before going down 3-0. Only nine players travelled for this game but all nine worked hard for the eighty minutes and were unlucky to concede the three goals at crucial points in the first half. The second half performance was much better and not only did they defend strongly, they created chances of their own and will feel unfortunate not to have at least found the net once. This division is still wide open with several vital games to be played but it is vital that the team can pull together sufficient numbers to compete
