Best of luck to our players in Gaynor Cup

Published: Friday, 13 April 2018 21:25

Five Tombrack players will be with the Wexford League Under Sixteen Schoolgirls squad which travel to the AUL tomorrow to compete in the qualifiers for this seasons Gaynor Cup. Breda Cushen, Amie Dreelan, Shauna McGovern, Lucy Kimple and Becky Connaughton are all part of the squad who will take on Sligo / Leitrim, Mid Western and Kilkenny leagues with two teams qualifying for the Gaynor Cup which will take place in June in Limerick. Wexford and Kilkenny are the two favourites to qualify from this group but nothing can be taken for granted and we wish our five girls and all the squad the best of luck over the weekend

Also in action, the league Under Twelve are playing in the Cork Invitational with our player Ana Dragusan a major part of this squad. The team are preparing for the FAI Under Twelve Inter League preliminary round which takes place in Killarney in May and we also wish Ana and her squad the best of luck

Busy week with mixed results

Monday April 9th

Under Fourteen Schoolboys

Tombrack United  0  Forth Celtic  1

Our Under Fourteen boys put in a brave battle against a decent Forth Celtic side on Monday evening and put in a strong defensive performance before eventually losing out 1-0. The visitors were dominant in midfield and the consistent pressure paid off when they were awarded a penalty which was saved by Nathan Kelly but Forth were quickest to the rebound to score the only goal of the game

Wednesday April 11th

Youths Division Three

Camolin Celtic  2  Tombrack United  3

Our youths moved to the top of the division when they came away from Camolin after a 3-2 win gave them a hard earned but deserved three points on Wednesday evening. Tombrack opened the scoring with a well taken goal from Josh McMullen and when Kevin Kenny converted a penalty, it looked like the lads were well on the way to a comfortable three points. However, Camolin showed great character and pulled a goal back just before half time and will feel unlucky not have got back on level terms although our lads did defend strongly and kept them at bay. A good run from Josh saw him make space in the box in the second half and fired the ball into the net to restore the two goal advantage but the home side refused to lie down and pulled another goal back with twelve minutes to go. However, Tombrack remained in control for the closing stages and remain unbeaten as they go two points clear at the top of the table

Thursday April 12th

Under Twelve Schoolboys

Shelburne United  0  Tombrack United  1

The Under Twelve boys caused a bit of an upset when travelling to Ballywilliam and overcoming title challengers Shelburne by a single goal. Stephen O Toole scored the vital goal to give the lads their first win and it was a performance worthy of the three points as Tombrack were well in control and had other chances to increase their advantage but in the end, Bob and the lads were content with the victory

Thursday April 12th

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  0  Boolavogue United  1

Our men's second team went down to Boolavogue by a single goal on Thursday evening where chances were few and far between for both sides. The lads have a couple of big games coming up in the next few weeks but a win at home to St Josephs on Sunday would practically guarantee their safety in this division for next season

 

Men go down to Taghmon while Women wrap up league title

Volkswagon Cup Fourth Round

Tombrack United  1  Taghmon United  4

Our men were eliminated from the Wexford Cup when a below par performance saw them lose out to a hard working Taghmon side. The visitors are doing well in Division Two and still have an outside chance of promotion but they started this cup game at a furious pace which our lads found difficult to handle. While finding it difficult to score at one end, the lads were not defending well and by half time they were 3-0 behind and in real trouble. Once Taghmon scored the fourth goal, the game was over as a contest and although Eoghan Murphy did manage to score late in the game, it was little more than a consolation and Tombrack bowed out of the Wexford Cup

The lads now have five league games left, beginning with a crucially important match away to Gorey Celtic next Sunday

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Wexford Celtic  2  Tombrack United  4

Our men's second team travelled to Wexford Celtic on Sunday in need of three points to pull away from the relegation zone and they did just that as they came away 4-2 winners. Goals from Kieran Kenny, Eoghan Murphy, John Kavanagh and Jamie Murphy gave the lads the three points that moves them to fourth from bottom and with a big game coming up against St Josephs next Sunday, they should be able to secure another three points that will move them to relative safety

Wexford Womens League Division Two B

Tombrack United  4  Fastnet Rovers  1

Our Women kicked off on a very wet pitch knowing a point would be enough to secure the Division Two B title but also knowing that second placed Fastnet would be be ready for a tough battle. The game began with Tombrack taking immediate control and after three minutes were 1-0 ahead with one of the best goals of the season as Becky Connaughton knocked the ball out to Sarah Merrigan who crossed for Mary Boland to send a bullet like header to the back of the net. Seven minutes later, Shannon McGovern broke away from the defence and slotted the ball past the keeper and midway through the half, she scored again when a direct ball down the middle, sent her clear to shoot to the bottom corner of the net. Minutes before half time, she was denied her hat trick as her well struck shot came back off the crossbar. Fastnet did have a chance to pull one back just before half time but keeper Ashling Kavanagh was quick off her line to deny them the opportunity

The second half saw Tombrack keep control of the ball, preventing Fastnet from putting together any pattern of play and midway through the half, Becky Connaughton scored when she found herself in loads of space and sent the ball under the advancing keeper. Mary Boland hit the post shortly after and although the visitors did score an injury time goal, it did not take from the Women's performance which was one of the best of the season and worthy of league champions

League Vice Chairman Barry Dempsey was on hand to present captain Mary Boland with the league trophy with celebrations being planned for Sunday May 6th

Squad: Ashling Kavanagh, Mary Boland (Shauna McGovern), Breda Cushen, Tia Byrne, Eimear Whelan, Kelli Maguire (Sharon Walsh), Sarah Merrigan, Becky Connaughton (Katie O Toole), Mary Boland, Ciara Ryan (Leanne Kenny), Shannon McGovern (Amie Walsh)

Sixteens the big winners and still in contention for honours

Published: Saturday, 07 April 2018 21:22

Under Fourteen Schoolboys

Tombrack United  3  Ferns United  3

This local derby produced a six goal thriller before both sides had to be content with a point each. Both sides dominated different periods of the game with Tombrack taking an early lead through Danny Ascot and had a few chances to increase that advantage until Ferns finally got to grips with the game and scored an equaliser just before half time. It was the visitors who were in control for the opening ten minutes of the second half and raced into a 3-1 lead but Tombrack dug in and battled back to earn a point with Danny Ascot scoring his second with Stephen O Toole also finding the net

Under Sixteen Schoolboys

Tombrack United  13  Wexford Albion  0

A weak Wexford Albion second team had no answer to a dominant Tombrack side who kept their title ambitions alive with this facile 13-0 win. The home side were always in control of this game and almost scored at will with David Power and Josh McMullan scoring a hat trick each with Harry Fitzgibbon and Thomas Jeffers scoring two each while Barry O Toole, Thomas Fitzgerald and Jack White all adding one each. The lads now travel to Shamrock Rovers on Friday evening knowing that a win will ensure them at least a play off for the title

Under Eighteen Schoolgirls

Tombrack United  0  St Leonards  1

These two sides have enjoyed some tough battles in the last couple of seasons with only a goal or two separating them in several games and this game was no exception. Both sides like to play attacking football but both sides also know each other so well, they have a tendency to cancel each other out. Tombrack probably enjoyed the best of the opening ten minutes but did not score and midway through the half, a long range effort from St Leonards dipped under the crossbar and into the net. Our girls pushed hard for an equaliser with Shannon McGovern, Becky Connaughton and Tia Byrne all bringing good saves from the keeper while at the other end, Leanne Kenny pulled off two vital saves to keep the score at 1-0. The game ended with the Ballycullane girls going home with a very important three points that practically has put them in an almost uncatchable position
