Important win for B team as A team bow out of Leinster

Wexford Schoolgirls League Premier Division

All Blacks  3  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Eleven schoolgirls completed their season with a strong display away to All Blacks but unfortunately ended up on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline. Goals from Eimear Roche and Megan Hayes had Tombrack 2-0 up but some good play and hard work from the home side saw them work their way back into the game and eventually did enough to snatch all three points. This was a big season for our girls as it was their first in the Premier division and although they ended up the season on no points, they were competitive in all their games and manager Angela Tomkins can be proud of her team and they can now begin preparations for the new season which will kick off in late February. Well done to everyone who worked with this squad and of course, to the players themselves

Wexford Schoolboys League Under Fourteen Division Two A

Tombrack United  2  Forth Celtic B  7

This game was much closer than the scoreline would lead you to believe but in the end, Forth Celtic left Ballyboy with a comfortable three points. Ryan Hayes gave Tombrack the lead and although Celtic hit back quickly to lead 3-1, Tombrack continued to battle and pulled one back through Luke Regan, before having a goal disallowed for a tackle on the visitors keeper. As Tombrack pushed for the equaliser, Forth broke away to go 4-2 in front and knocked in another three for a deceivingly comfortable 7-2 win

Leinster Junior Cup Second Round

Trinity Donaghmede  5  Tombrack United  1

An understrength Tombrack side travelled to Donaghmede to take on the home side in the second round of the Leinster Junior Cup and for the opening period of the game, Tombrack were well in contention with the Leinster Senior League side. Trinity opened the scoring after just two minutes but Tombrack dug deep and pulled one back on twenty minutes through Kevin Kenny but with ten minutes to go to half time, the home side went back in front again. The lack of numbers proved costly for Tombrack in the second half and the home side used this to their advantage as they scored three more without reply to book their place in the last thirty two of the competition

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  2  Caim United  1

Our men's second team produced one of their best displays of the season so far as they put their recent bad form behind them to overcome promotion challengers Caim United by the odd goal in three. Tombrack controlled the early part of the first half but as often happens in football, they found themselves one behind when Caim scored from a free kick on fifteen minutes. Both Harry Fitzgibbon and William Dunne but went close to scoring but Caim defended well while Neil Fitzpatrick was working hard in the Tombrack defence. The second half saw Caim become more dominant but Tombrack battled well and were rewarded when Josh McMullen capitalised on a defensive error and used his speed to nip in between two defenders to slot the ball to the corner of the net. With fifteen minutes to go, Harry Fitzgibbon put a through ball into th path of James Kavanagh and he made no mistake as he fired the ball low to the corner of the net. Caim came (always wanted to say that) in search of an equaliser but the Tombrack defence worked extremely hard to keep them at bay and hang on for a vital three points. Well done to everyone involved

Leanne's four minute hat trick wraps up big win for Women

Wexford Football League Division One

North End United  4  Tombrack United  0

It is often said the scoreline does not reflect the game, and this was definitely one of those games as with twelve minutes to go, the game was scoreless and Tombrack were pressing for the winner. The game started at a furious pace with North End probably starting the better although Tombrack quickly settled into the pace of the game and the first real decent chance of the game came when Mattie Hendrick did enough to get the ball over the keeper but it did not have enough pace to cross the line and although the home side were pressing forward, the Tombrack defence were comfortable. Minutes before half time, Eoghan Murphy saw his free kick swing viciously through the area but just wide of the post.

The second half continued much in this vein with chances at a minimum, Tombrack enjoying possession but North End always looking dangerous as they emptied their bench to bring on some of their youths. Tombrack's best chance came when Eoghan Murphy saw his shot pushed away by the keeper and Kevin Kenny saw his shot from the rebound just go over the crossbar. On Seventy Eight minutes, a drop in concentration for Tombrack saw the ball not being cleared from the danger area and the home side fired the ball to the net after three attempts. Tombrack came in search of an equaliser but the experienced central defenders kept them at bay and with five minutes to go, North End broke away and were awarded a penalty which they calmly slotted to the back of the net. Ninety minutes saw another shot strike the back of the net and two minutes later, the home side scored again with the final kick of the game for an unlikely 4-0 win

This game very much shows the competitiveness of this division and at present, any one of seven teams will feel they have a chance of winning this division and Tombrack are still well in contention as they head into LFA Junior Cup action next weekend with a game away to Trinity Donaghmede from the Leinster Senior League

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Enniscorthy Town  4  Tombrack United  1

Our men's second team are playing decent football at the moment but just not getting any luck and they find themselves in a relegation dogfight after this 4-1 defeat away to Enniscorthy Town. Josh McMullan gave Tombrack the lead when he headed home a Jamie Murphy free kick but midway through the half, Town were awarded a penalty to bring them level and they went in front just before half time with a well struck free kick. Tombrack battled hard in the second half to get back into the game but the home side used their experience to hang on and two further goals saw them wrap the three points with a 4-1 win

Wexford Womens League Division Two

All Blacks  1  Tombrack United  8

A very strange game played by two teams numerically understrenght, scoreless after the first half, despite Tombrack creating several chances, followed by eight goals in twenty five minutes to give Tombrack an 8-1 victory. The women dominated the first half and only some excellent defending kept them at bay and if their chances had been taken, they could have had the game wrapped up. Four minutes into the second half, Sarah Merrigan eventually broke the deadlock and a minute later Shauna McGovern made it 2-0 before Sarah added her second to make it 3-0. All Blacks did manage to pull one back before goals from Kelli Maguire, a second goal from Shauna, and an incredible four minutes when Leanne Kenny knocked in three goals, possibly a club record for quickest hat trick. This effectively ended the game as a contest and Tombrack left Mayglass with the three points to sit third in the table behind leaders Bunclody and Corach

Mikayla scores vital winner for Under Twelve girls

Published: Saturday, 17 November 2018 20:11

Under Nine Schoolgirls and Under Eleven Schoolboys

Both our non competitive sides were in action this morning and both put in excellent performances with Kate Tomkins having an especially good day as she put in top class performances for both sides. Well done to both squads who continue to show improvement with every game. 

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Twelve Division Two A

Tombrack United  3  Bree United  2

Four wins from four played and top of the table with one game to go but it wont get any more exciting than this as our girls overcame fellow title challengers Bree United by the odd goal in five. Both sides were unbeaten going into this game and a win for either side would be invaluable for their title ambitions and it was Tombrack who took the lead when Ana Dragusan scored after ten minutes but Bree showed their talent and were back on level terms five minutes later. Ana scored her second just before half time to restore the home sides lead but shortly after the restart, the sides were level again when Bree scored a goal that deflected off a Tombrack defender. Seven minutes before the end, Mikayla Tobin Cosgrave became the heroine when she scored the winner for Tombrack to give them an invaluable three points. Well done to everyone on a great victory and with just one big game left away to Adamstown, the girls are well in contention for the title

Wexford Schoolboys Under Fifteen Division Two

Tombrack United  2  Bree United  0

Our Under Fifteen boys moved joint top of the table when they eventually overcame a hard working Bree side with two goals in the final fifteen minutes of the game. The first half was evenly contested although Tombrack should have taken the lead when awarded a penalty but it was well saved and the game reached half time still scoreless. The lads were much better in the second half and were camped in the Bree half of the lead, bringing save after save from the keeper until fifteen minutes from the end, Stephen O Toole eventually found the net to give Tombrack the lead. Bree almost equalised straightaway only for an excellent save from Nathan Kelly but shortly after, Ryan Hayes scored to put the game to bed and secure the three points. This is going to be a very tight division and our lads are showing to be as competitive as anyone in what is going to be a very long season

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Sixteen Premier Division

All Blacks  2  Tombrack United  3

Our Under Sixteen girls remain in contention for the premier title after a numerically understrength side travelled to All Blacks and came away with a vital three points to keep the pressure on leaders Forth Celtic. Tombrack had to work hard to overcome a young home side who used their advantage in numbers to make life difficult for the visitors but our girls used every ounce of experience they had to eventually come out on top. Two goals for Emma Tomkins and one for Aimee Dreelan gave the girls their second win of the season and moved into second place in the league, three points behind Forth Celtic, with one game each to go

Wexford Football League Youths Division Two

Glynn Barntown  1  Tombrack United  0

These two sides have not enjoyed a great start in this division and neither side looked impressive in this league tie. Already missing Evan Maher, the lads were dealt a further blow twenty minutes in when David Power had to come off injured. Neither side were creating much in a scrappy first half but it was the home side who scored when Tombrack were unable to clear. Tombrack were much better in the second half but could not break down a home side who scrapped and battled for the win and probably deserved their three points in the end. This is a rebuilding year for our youths after three years of success and manager Willie Maher is confident that this side can improve over the season

A mixed weekend of results

Saturday November 10th

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Fourteen Division Two B

Tombrack United  4  Bridge Rovers  8

Our Under Fourteen schoolgirls went into this game as league leaders but a disappointing first half performance saw them go 5-0 behind to second placed Bridge Rovers and left themselves with an incredible hill to climb in the second half. Tombrack needed a point to wrap up the title while the visitors needed all three points and from the moment the game kicked off, it was Bridge who started best and were rewarded with an almost unassailable lead. Goals from Abbie Walsh and Tara Kenny brought the game back to 5-2 at the break. Both sides traded goals in the second half with Ana Dragusan and Amy Tobin Cosgrave on target for the home side while a further three goals for Rovers saw them win 8-4 and clinch the Division Two B title with Tombrack wrapping up runners up spot

Wexford Schoolgirls Under Eighteen League

Bunclody AFC  6  Tombrack United  0

An undertrength Under Eighteen side travelled to Bunclody and gave the home side a couple of scares before the lack of numbers finally showed and Bunclody secured the three points they needed to wrap up the title. Tombrack worked hard in the early part of the game and were unfortunate not to be ahead as they created some good chances but once the home side got in control, they did enough to wrap up the game and the Under Eighteen league title

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  0

A determined hard working display from our men's team saw them eventually secure their fifth win of the season, remain unbeaten and move to within two points of leaders Kilmore United when they overcame New Ross Town with a goal five minutes from the end. Town started well and the lads had to defend strongly to keep them at bay and it was fifteen minutes before Tombrack got through on goal with Mattie Hendrick, Niall Maher and Rory Newe all going close. Both sides were pressing for the winner in the second half with defences dominating, James Coleman and Bob Newe, both worked hard to keep Town at bay. The breakthrough came in the eighty fifth minute when Jamie Walsh, got on the ball in the penalty area but found himself being shepherded away by his marker, but Jamie managed to turn back into the area and fired an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net. Town came in search of an equaliser but Tombrack held firm and could have increased their lead when Kevin Kenny saw his long range shot drift wide of the goal with the Ross keeper still in the Tombrack penalty area. A hard earned victory but a very important three points earned with grit and determination and the lads now move onto their next league match. Kieran Kenny picked up two nasty knocks in the game and hopefully he will only be out short term, if at all

Wexford Football League Division Four A

St Leonards  5  Tombrack United  2

All the goals came in the first half of this game with Tombrack scoring the first and last. Harry Fitzgibbon gave Tombrack the lead on ten minutes but some good work by the home side, who are challenging for the title, saw them score five in a thirty minute spell before some good work by Paul Browne saw him bring it back to 5-2. Tombrack were much better in the second half with William Dunne going close on a couple of occasions and overall it was a good performance by a side missing a load of players for various reasons and hopefully will be back to full strength next week

Wexford Women's League Divisional Shield Quarter Final

Tombrack United  1  New Ross Town  2

Our Women bowed out of the Shield at the Quarter Final stage when beaten by a hard working New Ross Town side, played on a decent pitch but in atrocious conditions. Neither side could get a foothold on the game early on until five minutes before half time, Becky Connaughton was taken down in the box and Sarah Merrigan slotted home the resultant penalty. New Ross Town showed their usual never say die attitude and mid way through the second half they were back on level terms with a well struck free kick. Tombrack did create chances but failed to take them and with ten minutes to go, the visitors went in front and hung on to that lead to book their place in the last four
