Youths bow out of LFA Youth Cup after brave effort

Published: Saturday, 06 October 2018 20:49

O Neills LFA Youth Cup First Round


St Josephs AFC (Carlow)  3  Tombrack United  1


A hard working well orgnanised home side came from behind to overcome a young Tombrack in Tinryland in this O Neills LFA Youth Cup first round tie. After a scrappy opening ten minutes where chances were at a minimum, it was Tombrack who went closest when Josh McMullan saw his effort just clear the crossbar with the home keeper well beaten. The Wexford league side were dealt a blow when having to make a substitution after just fifteen minutes when Jack Salt replaced the injured Thomas Fitzgerald and his proved to be an inspired move, as minutes later, the substitute beat the keeper to the ball and shot to net from a difficult angle

The Carlow side came in search of an equaliser and went close close through efforts from Matthew Delaney, who headed just wide, and Corey Kelliher who saw his shot well saved by Evan Murphy.

Almost on the half hour mark, St Josephs were rewarded when Sam Byrne,beat the offside trap to found himself free on goal and gave Murphy no chance with his well-placed shot to the bottom corner. They could have been ahead a minute later when a well struck shot from Kelliher, bounced awkwardly in front of the Tombrack keeper and he did well to scramble the ball clear for a corner. Continued pressure from the home side saw them eventually go in front when Jonah Dunne rose highest in a crowded penalty area to head a Cian Shannon cross to the back of the net three minutes before the break

The second saw Tombrack improve dramatically with Evan Maher in midfield becoming more dominant with Harry Fitzgibbon and Josh McMullan combining well to create problems for the home defenders. The best chance of an equaliser came when Padraig Nolan worked his way down the right wing, his accurate pass finding McMullan who had the ball scrambled away before he could shoot

With five minutes to go, Tombrack got caught on the break and St Josephs booked their place in the second round when sub Dylan McDermott found himself in acres of space and gave Murphy no chance with his well struck effort. Harry Fitzgibbon almost had the final say for Tombrack but his shot went just outside the post.

Saturday September 29th

Schoolgirls Under Eleven Premier Division

Curracloe United  3  Tombrack United  0

Our Under Eleven girls opened their campaign in the top division of the league when they took on last season's double winners and despite going down 3-0, the girls can be proud of their performance. After an evenly contested first half, Curracloe eventually broke the deadlock just before half time when eventually finding away past Tombrack keeper Eadbha Guinan while Ciara Kenny was unlucky not to bring the sides level when her shot skimmed the crossbar minutes later. Curracloe scored early in the second half and were awarded a late penalty to wrap up a 3-0 victory although Tombrack almost had the final say when Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave saw her shot just go wide of the post


Schoolboys Under Twelve

Taghmon United  2  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Twelve boys opened their league season with a well earned draw away to Taghmon United with the home side scoring in the dying seconds to deny our lads all three points. Tombrack led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Alex Kavanagh and Rian Buttle but a strong fight back from the home side saw them pull one back midway through the half before finding the net late to grab a point

Schoolboys Under Fourteen

Stoney LFC  7  Tombrack United  3

A very understrength Under Fourteen side travelled to Stoney and despite being outnumbered by the home side, they were well in contention for long periods of the game before eventually being broken down late in the game. Darragh Breen gave the lads the lead after just a minute and second half goals from Daire Moynihan and Ryan Hayes kept the lads in touch, missing a penalty which could have really put pressure on the home side, before Stoney scored in the last minute to kill off a brave effort form the lads

Schoolboys Under Sixteen

Tombrack United  0  Wexford Albion 8

Wexford Albion proved far too strong for our Under Sixteen boys and ran out comfortable winners against a hard working home side. Albion were strong in numbers and used the roll on / roll off substitution rule to its fullest advantage. To our lads credit, they continued to work hard but found the Wexford town side just too much to handle on the day

Schoolgirls Under Eighteen

Tombrack United  6  Carnew FC  0

The Under Eighteen girls proved much too strong for Carnew and picked up the three points with a comfortable 6-0 win. The home side were always in control and keeper Leanne Kenny was never troubled as a hat trick each from Becky Connaughton and Nicola Ryan wrapped up victory for Tombrack

FAI Junior Cup Second Round

Curracloe United  2  Tombrack United  3  aet

Tombrack looked to be cruising to the third round of the FAI Junior Cup when they were leading 2-0 but took their foot off the pedal in the final ten minutes and allowed Curracloe back into the game. With some changes forced on manager Willie Maher due to injury and illness, the lads still controlled the game with goals from Kevin Coleman and Eoin Carton putting them comfortably in control. However a lapse of concentration in the last ten minutes allowed a resilient Curracloe side back into the game and two quick goals got them back on level terms and brought the game to extra time. Mattie Hendrick became the hero as Tombrack took control in the extra time and his goal was enough to put Tombrack through to the third round

LFA Junior Shield First Round

Tombrack United  2  Bree United  1  aet

Our B team caused a minor upset in the Leinster Junior Shield when a hard working performance saw them eventually book their place in the second round draw with a goal three minutes from the end of extra time. An evenly contested opening twenty minutes saw both sides creating several chances and the game could have been 4-4 after half an hour before Bree eventually broke the deadlock when their forward got in behind our defence. Tombrack went in search of an equaliser and were rewarded just before half time when Harry Fitzgibbon was on hand to capitalise on a goalkeeping error to shoot to the net and bring the sides level. Tombrack dominated the second half with Josh McMullan, David Fox, James Kavanagh and Harry Fitzgibbon all going close and bringing saves from the excellent Bree keeper. No goals saw the game move to extra time where Tombrack continued to press against a tiring Bree side until three minutes from time, some persistent work by player of the match William Dunne saw him fire the ball to the back of the net from outside the area for what proved to be the winning goal

Womens Divisional Shield Group C

All Blacks  0  Tombrack United  4

The Women travelled to All Blacks in the Shield with some experienced faces and some new players and despite a shaky start, they eventualy took control of the game and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Tombrack started well but failed to break down the home defence and could have fell behind themselves when an All Blacks free kick hit the crossbar but after that scare, the girls took control and went ahead when a good combination of play from Shauna McGovern and Becky Connaughton put Shannon McGovern through to angle the ball past the keeper. On the stroke of half time, a diagonal pass from Becky put Nicola Ryan through and she made no mistake as she hammered the ball past the keeper for her first goal for the women. The second half saw Tombrack dominate with Shannon going through to score her second while Becky, Marie Allen and Louise Jordan all brought saves from the keeper before Becky broke through late in the game, bringing a good save from the keeper but Ciara O Sullivan was on hand to tap home the rebound. All Blacks almost had the final say but Ashling Kavanagh saved well to keep them at bay. Under the circumstances, this was an outstanding performance from the whole squad but Amie Dreelan and Becky Connaughton were both exceptional on the day

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Ciara Ryan, Sarah Merrigan (Ciara O Sullivan), Amie Dreelan, Becky Connaughton, Leanne Kenny, Shauna McGovern (Louise Jordan), Shannon McGovern, Amie Walsh (Marie Allen), Nicola Ryan (Aoife Newe)

Good start for Schoolgirls continues

Saturday September 22nd

Under Sixteen Schoolgirls Premier Division

Tombrack United  1  Bunclody AFC  0

These two sides have played out some cracking games in recent years and this one was no exception as a moderately understrength home side did enough to take a vital three points against a hard working Bunclody side. Both sides were evenly matched in the opening exchanges but it was Tombrack who created the chances and on the twenty minute mark, Lucy Kemple shot to the net to give them a deserved lead. Bunclody worked tirelessly to get back on level terms but found the home defence difficult to break down as they were restricted to chances from long range which were comfortably dealt with. Midway through the second half, the girls were reduced to nine when Amy Tobin Cosgrave had to come off injured but Tombrack showed great character as they worked extremely hard to hold on to their lead and at the end, take a well earned three points with Shauna McGovern putting in a tremendous player of the match performance

Under Twelve Schoolgirls Division Two A

Tombrack United  6  Shelburne United  0

Our Under Twelve girls kicked off their season with a win as they overcame Shelburne in a game where the scoreline did not do justice to the hard work of the visitors. Three goals in each half saw Tombrack well in control as they put in an overall strong team performance, defence and keeper keeping Shelburne at bay while the midfield and forwards created several chances for the home side. Ana Dragusan scored four while Anna Tompkins and Ciara Kenny were also on target for the girls

Under Nine Schoolgirls

Our youngest schoolgirls team played an exciting fast paced encounter against an equally matched St Josephs side. The five Tombrack girls can be proud of their performance on the day and if any other young girls would like to join the clubs most exciting young team, contact manager Angela Tomkins or any committee member. Players who took to the field on this wet Saturday morning were Kate Tomkins, Riona Byrne, Nessa Byrne, Rachel McCrea and Ella Murphy

Youths unlucky as Under Fourteen girls win

Wexford Football League Youth Division Two

Tombrack United  2 Shamrock Rovers  3

These two sides have played some close fought encounters in recent years and this game was no exception. The game opened with Rovers conceding a penalty early on and having a player sent off but unfortunately, it was not converted and minutes later, Tombrack conceded a penalty and also had a player dismissed, only Rovers did convert. Ten minutes later they were 2-0 up with a well taken goal, a lead they held until the break. They made it 3-0 shortly after but a goal from David Power brought Tombrack into the game and constant pressure saw Jack Salt score to set up an exciting final few minutes but Rovers did enough to hang on for the three points

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Tombrack United  3  Bree United  2

Our Under Fourteen girls opened their season with a win as they overcame Bree in a five goal thriller. The two sides traded goals to be tied at 2-2 with Ana Dragusan scoring both the home sides goals and they took all three points when Zoe Tobin Cosgrave scored with seven minutes to go for a well deserved win
