Youths battle back for valuable point

Published: Saturday, 17 March 2018 17:44

Wexford Football League Division Three

Tombrack United  1  Gorey Rangers B  1

A very cold and blustery Ballyboy saw two of the league title challengers battle out a hard fought contest with both sides eventually having to settle for a point each. The wind played a major part in this game with Tombrack having to defend strongly in the first half to keep a well organised Rangers side at bay with keeper Daniel Nolan Buckley and his defence working hard to prevent the visitors scoreless. 

Tombrack did create chances but were unable to breakdown the well organised Rangers defence Harry Fitzgibbon and Kevin Kenny did get through on goal but had their shots well defended

A Disappointing weekend of results

Under Fourteen Schoolboys

New Ross Town B  0  Tombrack United  2

Two weeks ago, our Under Fourteen boys were the only team in action when they traveled to New Ross Town and came away 2-0 winners. Conor Salt scored both goals for the lads who played well with the back three of Darragh Breen, Craig Dreelan and Daire Moynihan all playing exceptionally well

Under Eleven Schoolgirls Cup Second Round

Bridge Rovers  6  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Eleven girls have found the long break difficult to handle and have not hit their early season form since coming back Christmas and the unpredictable weather is not helping. They struggled in this cup game against a well organised Bridge Rovers side who were sharper in front of goal and took their chances well and although our girls scored twice through Kate Tomkins, it was not enough and the home side progressed to a quarter final meeting with Fastnet Rovers

Under Twelve Schoolboys

Tombrack United  1  Campile United  4

Our young Under Twelve Schoolboys came up against a strong Campile United side and although playing well for periods of the game, they were unable for the physically stronger visiting side. Adam Byrne scored Tombrack's goal in a game where the lads worked hard but just could not get past the well organised Campile defence

Wexford Football League Premier Division

Tombrack United  0  Moyne Rangers  2

A goal in each half, gave Moyne revenge for their 1-0 home defeat to Tombrack earlier in the season and on the day, their desire and hunger to win the game proved to be the difference between the teams. The opening twenty minutes saw neither keeper overly troubled and although Moyne had more of the possession, they did not break down the home defence. Tombrack came into the game midway through the half and Eoin Carton and Richie O Hara both creating chances while the latter will feel he was unlucky to be flagged offside ten minutes from the break

Moyne eventually broke the deadlock, four minutes before the break when a header back across the box gave the Moyne forward space to slot the ball past Paul Darcy, giving him no chance and although Tombrack came in search of an equaliser, the Moyne defence held firm

The home side were a little more direct in the early part of the second half with James and Kevin Coleman pressing forward, attempting to carve an opening which the Moyne defence were reluctant to give. Midway through the half with Tombrack pressing in search of an equaliser, they got caught at the back and on seventy two minutes, Moyne broke through to round the keeper and make it 2-0

Moyne's experience came into play at this stage and although Tombrack continued to battle for the elusive breakthrough, the Enniscorthy side were able to see the game out and take an important three points as they look to keep the pressure on the leaders

While Tombrack will be disappointed with the final result, it can only be taken as another step on the learning curve at participating at the highest level in the league and there is still a lot to play for as they battle to stay in the Premier Division

Team: Paul Darcy, Matthew Hendrick (Dane McGarry) Brian Hayden, Rory Newe, Bob Newe, Kevin Coleman, Steven Ryan (Kevin Kenny), James Coleman, Darragh Hendrick, Eoin Carton, Richie O Hara (John Coleman)

 

Five Under Sixteen girls selected for Wexford Gaynor Cup quad

Published: Tuesday, 20 February 2018 21:48

The strength of the Schoolgirl section in Tombrack was evident when Wexford Under Sixteen manager Mick Bennett announced his squad on Saturday evening with five of our players were selected on the twenty player squad.

Breda Cushen, Amie Dreelan, Becky Connaughton and were all selected for this squad for the second year in a row while Shauna McGovern and Lucy Kemple, members of last years Under Fourteen's squad have been moved up to the older age group for this season. The Wexford league squad participate in the FAI Gaynor Cup, the top competition for underage inter league schoolgirl squads. Wexford finished down the rankings last season so have to go through a qualifying stage this season which will take place in mid April with opponents and venue to be announced in the coming days

It is hoped there will be further good news in the coming days as we also have players in contention for the Under Fourteen squad 

Men back to winning ways as they go through in cup

Wexford Volkswagon Cup Second Round

Tombrack United  4  North End United B  0

A strong second half performance saw Tombrack overcome a potentially dangerous cup tie against North End's second team who play in Division One. After the overnight rain, the pitch just about passed a pitch inspection but despite the heavy conditions, both sides endeavoured to play passing football but it was the home side who enjoyed the better of the chances with Kevin Coleman and Richie O Hara both having chances while Eoin Carton was giving the North End defence a tough time as he pressed forward. North End did have chances but Paul Darcy was never overly troubled although he did have to be sharp off his line on more than one occasion but overall the Tombrack defence did restrict the visitors to half chances
