Over 35s go down to "young" Parkville side

Carlow Over Thirty Five League

Tombrack United  0  Parkville United  6

Our Over 35 side opened their campaign with a tough home game against a slick Parkville side who scored early and enjoyed most of the possession for the seventy minutes. Tombrack were missing some regulars but the eleven players who were on the pitch worked hard and battled to the end, conceding three goals in each half. The clubs original goalkeeper, Kevin Davitt, made his debut at veteran level and can be quite happy with his performance overall while David Owens also made a return but all found it difficult against a visiting side who did not look to have a player over forty and were full of running off the ball which caused problems for our lads. The home side almost had the final say in a game where they had to defend strongly when Liam Doyle's free kick brought a good save from the Parkville keeper. There will be a few sore legs tomorrow but while the result did not go the way of Tombrack, the character of this team can never be faulted

Youths bounce back with comfortable win

Wexford Youths Division Two

St Cormacs  0  Tombrack United  6

The lads travelled to third place St Cormacs today and despite a poor start, they eventually came away from Boolavogue comfortable 6-0 winners. This game always had the potential to be a problem as the home side sat third in the table and had produced some creditable results throughout this unusual season and in the opening ten minutes, it looked like this game might be similar to the game on Tuesday night against Gorey Celtic. However, once Tombrack got a grip on this game, they did not slack off and goals from Evan Maher, David Power, Josh McMullen, Barry O Toole as well as two from Harry Fitzgibbon, they ran out 6-0 winners and sit just a point behind St Cormacs with potentially two games remaining. First of those is away to Ballymurn Celtic on Tuesday evening at 7pm

Relegation dogfight becomes interesting

Wexford Football League Division One

Moyne Rangers "B"  1  Tombrack United  2

In a night of crazy results, Tombrack did what was asked of them as they travelled to Moyne Rangers and overcame the title challengers with two goals from Jamie Walshe, one scored early in the game while the other came with three minutes remaining. It was a determined start from the lads as they put the home side on the backfoot and ten minutes in, they were 1-0 up with Jamie scoring the first of his goals. The game then developed into a battle as both needed the three points for different reasons, Moyne to continue their title challenge and Tombrack to pull themselves away from the bottom three but the lads did enough to hang on to their lead until half time. Moyne got back on level terms early in the second half as they capitalised on a poor clearance and managed to scramble the ball to the net

Tombrack showed great character at this point and went in push of the win but it looked like the game was heading for a draw until Jamie scored his second in the eighty seventh minute to give the lads a vital victory. On a strange night of results, fellow strugglers New Ross Celtic travelled to unbeaten leaders North End and win 2-1 while Bridge Rovers scored in the final minute to beat Adamstown 3-2 to see the division tighten up at both top and bottom

Youths fall to unlucky defeat

Published: Friday, 24 July 2020 13:34

Wexford Youths Division Two

Tombrack United  1  Gorey Celtic  2

In a game where our Youths looked to be cruising towards a comfortable three points, a combination of missed chances and a determined performance from the visitors saw Tombrack eventually lose out 2-1. The opening minutes were even enough with both sides creating half chances but defences and goalkeepers dominated so goal scoring opportunities were kept to a minimum. The home side got the breakthrough on twenty two minutes when Jack White found space just inside the area and shot past the advancing keeper to give Tombrack a well deserved lead. The remainder of the first half was dominated by Tombrack with several opportunities to increase their lead but good goalkeeping, strong defending and missed chances all resulted in the score remaining at 1-0 at half time.

Gorey Celtic were more determined in the second half and came more and more into the game and although Tombrack did continue to press forward, missed chances were still the order of the day and paid the price on the hour mark when the defence failed to clear their lines and Celtic got into score. The game became a little scrappier after that but Tombrack still had several opportunities to grab the three points and then with five minutes to go, they gave away a penalty which the visitors duly converted, leaving Ballyboy with  the three points

Tombrack will be disappointed by this defeat but they did play well, however, failure to put the ball in the net proved to be their downfall. Next up is St Cormacs on Saturday morning in Boolavogue at 11am
