Wexford Premier Division

Moyne Rangers  0  Tombrack United  1

An overall strong team performance with some outstanding individual performances saw Tombrack travel to Enniscorthy and overcome a Moyne Rangers side who battled hard but found the team spirit of the visitors difficult to break down. Moyne started the better and after five minutes could have been 2-0 ahead only for the sharpness of Paul Darcy in the goal, his second save in particular was a fantastic reflex save as he pushed a Moyne effort over the crossbar. After this initial pressure had passed, Tombrack settled more into the game and as well as containing the home side, began to push forward themselves with John Coleman and Kevin Kenny both creating problems for the Moyne defence. Kevin should have had a penalty when bundled over in the area but the ref waved play on while at the other end, Moyne were aggrieved when they had a goal disallowed for offside

The second half saw Moyne start well again but could not break down the resilient Tombrack defence who once again weathered the storm and began to create chances themselves with Steven Ryan coming for a tired Eoin Carton who had worked hard for almost an hour. Minutes after coming on, Steven chased down a through ball from James Coleman but the keeper raced off his line to clear, the ball going straight to Kevin Kenny who kept his nerve and struck the ball high into the net from forty yards out for a deserved 1-0 lead.

At this stage, Tombrack were in control of the game and Moyne found it impossible to find gaps in a well marshalled defence with all four keeping their shape while Paul Darcy produced a man of the match performance as he dealt with every ball launched at him by a now desperate Moyne forward line. It was Tombrack who finished the strongest and could have been 2-0 ahead as Steven Ryan saw his goal bound shot cleared away while Savo brought a good save from the home keeper. Eight minutes injury time saw Tombrack remain in control and although they gave away a few close in free kicks in the dying minutes, Moyne failed to capitalise on the opportunities. 

In an overall team performance of this nature, it is difficult to give credit to one player but keeper Paul Darcy has to be recognised for his performance on the day while Kevin kept great composure to score his goal while every other player on the field worked their socks off and it was this determination, spirit and ability to stay focused and keep their shape that left Moyne with few options throughout the ninety plus minutes

Well done to Joe, Willie and all involved on what has been an interesting opening half of the season and just need to enjoy the break now and be ready when we all return to action on January 7th

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Gorey Celtic  4  Tombrack United  1

Our Men's second team are still sitting precariously in the bottom group of teams in the division and with only one win and two draws, relegation is a major possibility unless they can put together a run of form in the new year. This match away to Gorey Celtic was always a difficult game with the home side currently second in the table and despite a decent performance, Tombrack struggled to keep them at bay and Celtic ran out 4-1 winners with Jamie Quinn scoring for Tombrack
