Wexford Football League Premier Division

Tombrack United  0  Bunclody AFC  0

A tough hard fought local derby played in difficult breezy conditions saw Tombrack collect another point and extend their recent unbeaten run to four games and still continue to play some good passing football. It took ten minutes for the game to settle down and when it did,it was Tombrack who looked the more comfortable on the ball and reduced Bunclody to long range efforts that did little to trouble Paul Darcy in the Tombrack goal. John Coleman was causing the visitors defence problems as he cut in from

the left on more than one occasion while Eoin Carton was also making the Bunclody defenders work hard.

Full backs Kevin Kenny and Matthew Hendrick were dealing comfortably with anything Bunclody produced and the only real chance came when Darcy slipped and Bob Newe was called on to clear off the line

Tombrack had to defend strongly in the second half against a determined Bunclody side and a strong breeze but did so comfortably with James Coleman and Darragh Hendrick pressing and only a poor bounce denied Kevin Coleman from putting Tombrack ahead

In the end, a point each was probably a fair result and while both sides could have taken all three points, both were probably content with a point at the end

Leinster Junior Shield First Round

St Pats Phoenix (AUL)  5  Tombrack United  0

Our second team travelled to Dublin to take on St Pats Phoenix in the LFA Junior Shield and found the AUL Division Three side tough to handle. Tombrack found themselves 2-0 down early in the game and despite a strong effort to get back into it, they were unable to break down a resolute home defence. Tombrack conceded another three before the end but overall Tombrack put in a decent effort and manager John Brownrigg was happy with his sides performance

Wexford Women's Divisional Shield Group C

Tombrack United  4  Bunclody AFC  0

The Women's team made it three wins from three games and finished top of the group when they overcame Bunclody 4-0. Tombrack opened the scoring after twelve minutes when Marie Allen was sharpest in a crowded penalty area and fired the ball to the back of the net from a Sarah Merrigan corner. Mary Boland made it 2-0 shortly afterwards when she cut through the middle of the Bunclody defence and slotted the ball past the keeper. Bunclody did try to get a grip on the game but found it difficult to break down a hard working home defence and Tombrack made it 3-0 when Shannon McGovern split the defence with the perfect pass and Becky Connaughton fired the ball off the bottom of the crossbar and while the ref was deciding if it was a goal or not, she followed it in and shot the ball past the keeper.

Bunclody battled better in the second half but still found the defence and goalkeeper impossible to get past and when Shannon worked the ball down the left wing, she crossed to put Sarah Merrigan through to wrap up the 4-0 win. Defender Tia Byrne was removed to hospital after the match with suspected concussion and we all wish Tia a speedy recovery

Tombrack United: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Martin (Hannah Kilbride), Tia Byrne, Eimear Whelan, Breda Cushen, Kelli Maguire (Kelly Murphy), Sarah Merrigan, Mary Boland (Katie O Toole), Becky Connaughton, Shannon McGovern (Amie Walsh), Marie Allen (Leanne Kenny)
