Carlow Over Thirty Five Cup Quarter Final

Tombrack United  2  Vale Wanderers  8


A disastrous first half performance saw Tombrack trail 5-0 to a very strong clinical Vale Wanderers who were very capable of punishing the home side for any errors. The difference between the sides was that Tombrack did create chances but did not take them while Vale were very sharp when given the opportunity. Best chance of the half for Tombrack fell to Ray Murphy who saw his effort just graze the outside of the post

The second half saw the home side much more competitive with Barry McDermott going close before Noel Roche curled a long range shot to the top corner to put Tombrack on the scoresheet. Minutes later, Noel saw his well struck effort bring a fantastic save from the Vale keeper while Martin Doyle and Joe Goodall saw efforts closed down

Keeper Obi Kavanagh came forward for a corner but his acrobatic effort was blocked down by the visitors defence but moments later, Aidan Allen got his head to a cross to nod the ball into the corner of the net

Vale did continue to press forward and three further goals saw them comfortably progress to the semi finals of the Carlow Cup on an 8-2 scoreline

Tombrack were disappointed to fall to such a heavy defeat in their final game of the season but overall were happy with there first season at this level of the game and some of the players are already looking forward to next season

Well done to everyone involved throughout the season and congratulations to Obi Kavanagh who picked up the club player of the year award and to Mick Kenny who collected a very popular and well deserved club merit award

Celebrations are planned for next Saturday at 9pm in Colemans where the season shall surely be discussed and analysed in great detail

Well done to everyone involved on what has been a very enjoyable season with special mention to Noel, Obi and Martin who played in the clubs first game in August 1991, who would have thought all three would have been playing in August 2018 !!!

Squad: Obi Kavanagh, David Kennedy, Martin Kenny, Joe Goodall, Darren Quinn, Jonathan Dempsey, Martin Doyle, Mick Kenny, David Fox, Noel Roche, Barry McDermott, Aidan Allen, Ray Murphy

Carlow Over Thirty Five Division Two Cup Quarter Final

Tombrack United  1  Village FC  1

After a hard working and committed performance, Tombrack bowed out of the Over Thirty Five Division Two Cup on penalties after a highly competitive 1-1 draw in Ballyboy yesterday evening. Both these sides have been evenly matched in recent games, with the most recent league match being a scoreless draw, and this game was no different as both sides produced a highly entertaining cup tie

Tombrack were on top for the opening exchanges but could not breakdown a well organised Village defence with Joe Goodall and David Fox both having shots well saved while at the other end, the home defence dealt with any attacks the visitors threw at them. The breakthrough came on twenty five minutes when Martin Doyle headed a well struck Joe Goodall corner to the back of the net. However, the lead was shortlived as two minutes later, Village were back on level terms when they got in behind the defence and their centre forward gave Obi Kavanagh no chance with a well struck effort

Both sides worked hard for the winner in the second half but basically cancelled each other out with the game going to penalties where two good saves by the Village keeper proved decisive as they ran out 3-2 winners to book their place in the next round.

Tombrack were disappointed to be knocked out but overall can be proud of a hard working determined performance and will now face Vale Wanderers next Friday in the quarter finals of the Carlow Over Thirty Five Cup

Team: Obi Kavanagh, Darren "Dingo" Quinn, Willie Breen, Martin Kenny, David "Buggy" Kennedy, Fergus Turner, Joe Goodall, Martin Doyle, Barry McDermott, David Fox, Mick Kenny, Ray Murphy, Noel Roche, Aidan Allen, Joe Newe, Anton Treacy

FAI Intermediate Shield Quarter Final

Tombrack United  0  TEK United  7

Dublin Premier champions TEK United travelled to Ballyboy today and had no great problems in seeing off a brave effort from our Women's team. While the DWSL side ran out comfortable winners int he end, it was Tombrack who started the best and enjoyed the bulk of the possession for the opening fifteen minutes with Sarah Merrigan seeing her shot go just wide of the post. As the game progressed, the more experienced visitors took control and took the lead on twenty three minutes when awarded a questionable free which was fired to the roof of the net and they increased that advantage ten minutes later when some slick passing, made space in the area to slot past Ashling Kavanagh in the goal. Kelli Maguire did have a half chance just before the break but could not get enough power in her shot to trouble the keeper

Tombrack started the second half well but could not break through a well organised defence and ten minutes in, TEK made it 3-0 and it was downhill from there as their superior fitness saw them knock in another four despite the best efforts of Ashling and a hard working Tombrack defence. Sarah almost had the final say when her well struck shot just cleared the crossbar

TEk were the most dominant team in the DWSL last season and showed they are an overall, well organised side who play fast passing football but our women battled hard for the ninety minutes but just found the fitness and experience of the visitors just too much to handle on the day

Team: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin, Ciara Ryan, Tia Byrne, Eimear Whelan, Nikki Dunphy, Katie O Toole (Rebecca Connaughton), Sarah Merrigan, Kelli Maguire, Aimee Walsh, Leanne Kenny

Carlow and District League Over Thirty Five Division Two

Killeshin FC  4  Tombrack United  1

The lads travelled to divisional champions Killeshin yesterday evening but despite starting reasonably well, they found themselves on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline as the home side used their experience to wrap up their season unbeaten and comfortable winners of the division. Tombrack started well and brought the game to the home side and while not creating any clear cup chances, they did pressure the Kileshin defence and had them working hard to keep the lads at bay.
