Weekend Round-Up

Published: Sunday, 20 October 2019 20:56

After a rocky start to the season, the men's first team recorded their first win of the season this morning, overcoming a hard working New Ross Town side in a game where Tombrack were always in control and could have won by more but were denied by the crossbar and the post. Bob Newe was on target in the first half when he got on the end of a corner to shoot to the net. The lads continued to push forward in the second half and after a good run by Kevin Kelly, the ball broke to Josh McMullan and he fired the ball to the net. The visitors lost their discipline in the final ten minutes but our lads kept their's and held on for a very important 2-0 win

Our second team came up against a well organised Wexford Celtic side and went down 3-0

Our Women travelled to Bree United, one of the Divisional favourites, and despite a very good performance, were beaten 1-0

The Youths team came up against a well organised Campile United, the current premier youth leaders, in the first round of the LFA Youth Cup and despite a well disciplined hard working performance, Campile ran out 6-1 winners with Evan Maher scoring a free kick for Tombrack

The Under Fourteen girls got off to a flying start when proving too strong for Enniscorthy United in their opening league game. Ana Dragusan was in fine form as she scored six with Eabha Guinan, Abbie Kavanagh and Abbie Tomkins also finding the net in a 9-1 win

Men's A team go down but B team open with a victory

Wexford Football League Division One

Glynn Barntown  5  Tombrack United  2

This was always going to be a difficult season opener for our men's first team as last season's Division Two winners were looking to make it two wins from two in their first time in this division. The opening twenty minutes saw the home side enjoy a lot of possession but did little to trouble the visitors defence and Tombrack were unlucky not to go one up when Eoin Carton saw his shot just clear the crossbar. On the half hour, an effort from just outside the box took a cruel deflection and the ball looped over Aaron Breslin and into the net to give the home side a 1-0 lead. Glynn Barntown were enjoying the best of the opportunities at this stage and went 2-0 ahead just before half time, although Tombrack almost had the final say of the half when a Richie O Hara had his goal bound effort well saved by the keeper. 

Ten minutes into the second half, Glynn Barntown made it 3-0 and effectively ended the game as a contest although once again, they had their keeper to thank as he pulled off a brilliant one handed save to deny Kevin Kelly's fantastic header and within five minutes, it was 4-0. At this stage, Tombrack began to show some character and play their best football of the game and were rewarded with a goal from Josh McMullen who got on the end of a Jamie Murphy cross. A few minutes later, their keeper was dismissed for abuse and just on ninety minutes, Jamie Murphy scored to give a glimmer of hope

However, as they pressed forward in search of further goals, they got caught on the break and although Aaron pulled off a good save, the rebound fell to one of their forwards who rolled the ball into an empty net. While this was not a great performance with a lot of mistakes made early in the game proving costly, the lads did show character late in the game and ended well and will need to bring this to their next game for the full ninety minutes

Special mention to Evan Maher who made his full senior first team debut with a steady performance with Bob Newe and John Coleman also performing well

Wexford Football League Division Five

Tombrack United  4  Adamstown  0

The men's second team opened their season with a comfortable home win as a strong overall performance saw them dominate this game from start to finish. Two goals each from Harry Fitzgibbon and man of the match James Kavanagh saw the lads pick up all three points. Player manager David Fox was delighted with the performance and commitment from the lads as is  confident they can be in the hunt for honours at the end of the season

Tombrack United  5  St Cormacs  0

Our Youths got off to a flying start in Division Two when proving too strong for St Cormacs and running out 5-0 winners. In a game where Tombrack were always dominant, two goals from Josh McMullan and one each from Barry O Toole, Craig Dreelan and Tommy Atkinson saw the lads pick up an important three points and show that even at this early stage they could be serious promotion contenders

Important win for men as women are promoted

Saturday February 16th

Under Fifteen Schoolboys Division Two

Tombrack United  5  Ferns United  3

The Under Fifteen boys moved joint second in the table after this 5-3 win over near neighbours Ferns United. After a scoreless first half, Tombrack took control and went 3-0 ahead but then relaxed and allowed Ferns back to 3-2 before the lads got a grip on the game again and eventually ran out 5-3 winners and moved within three points of leaders Shelburne

 

Youths Division Two

St Josephs  1  Tombrack United  4

Tombrack are making every effort to avoid relegation from this division and this win away to St Josephs will not do them any harm in that quest. They got off to the worst possible start when going a goal behind but Harry Fitzgibbon scored to bring the sides level and goals from David Power, Tom Browne and Josh McMullen saw them run out 4-1 winners.

 

Sunday February 17th

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  2  New Ross Celtic 1

The lads continued their good run of form as they overcame an experienced New Ross Celtic side to keep the pressure on leaders Kilmore and well in contention for the league title. Celtic began the game well and it took some good defending and a bit of good luck to prevent them from going in front. Seventeen minutes into the game, Jamie Walshe put Tombrack ahead when he scored one of his trademark goals, finding space on the edge of the area and curling the ball into the net. Tombrack kept the game under control for the remainder of the half, defending well, while also creating chances with Eoin Carton and Josh O Byrne both going close. The game continued in that vein in the second half and Tombrack went 2-0 up when the Celtic keeper miskicked his clearance, kicking the ball straight to Josh, who still had a bit of work to do as he lofted the ball over the keeper’s head and into the net. Celtic played some of their better football at this point and with six minutes to go, a dangerous ball across the goal was deflected to the net by an “unnamed” defender who really had little option and knew little about it. Tombrack had to work hard to keep Ross at bay for the remainder of the game plus the six minutes injury time added on by the referee but showed great character to do so and while this game was not pretty to watch, it was a strong hard working performance that deserved three points. In an overall strong performance, Dane McGarry, Kevin Kelly and Aaron Breslin were all excellent on the day. Next up, St Cormacs at home next Sunday at 11

 

Gwyn Jones Cup Second Round

Tombrack United B 1  Cushinstown AFC  2

Nine man Tombrack United made Cushinstown second time work very hard to eventually book their place in the quarter finals of the Gwyn Jones Cup. Despite the lack of numbers with several players missing for various reasons, the lads looked strong in the first half and took a deserved lead when Harry Fitzgibbon curled the ball past the keeper. Tombrack had to defend strong to stay in front with the highlight of the first half was a penalty save from Conor Kehoe, followed up by a save from the rebound. Unfortunately an unpleasant wind and lack of numbers proved critical in the second half and Cushinstown scored twice to win 2-1. However, this was a hard working performance from our lads and they can be proud of their efforts on the day

 

Wexford Women’s League Division Two

Although our Women had no game on the day, Corach beating Bunclody ensured that the women are promoted for third year in a row. Next Sunday they take on leaders Corach Ramblers in Carrig on Bannow where a win will keep their title hopes alive. Congratulations to all involved on their promotion to Division One
