Glenville GAA News


Glenville travelled to picturesque Killavullen on Saturday morning last to take part in two games, U12 and U10. A great run out was had by everyone who played and for some of them it was the first game time they have got this year so far so with the schedule of game filling up for the summer these players can look forward to continued games throughout the summer.

Well done to all who played and also to Killavullen who played their part in a good mornings football.

This week the U9 team play Kilshannig on Wednesday April 27th away in Glantane while on Friday 29th the U11 and U10 sides play Glanmire at 7pm in Fouhy Park.

The U11 side will be busy over the next number of weeks with three league games coming thick and fast while the U12 resume action on Tuesday night 26th with an away game against Cobh.

Wed night 27th also sees a busy night of action with the U13 due to play Macroom away in the league but this game is subject to the hurling feile result on Monday night.

The U16 footballers play a league game against Bride Rovers on Wednesday night again this game is away in Rathcormac. Time for this game is 7pm.

The U14 side have no football action at the moment but once the feile hurling is completed it will be back into it again then. Glenville U14 Footballers will be competing in the All Ireland feile this year which will be held in early July, but before that they will be playing domestic championship which is pencilled in for mid may. Plenty of action to come over the next few weeks .

Minor Football Championship The draw for the Minor Football championship took place during the week and we find ourselves in a tough situation playing St Finbarrs in the first round and to compile matters we must travel to play them in their home patch in Togher.

This game is due to be played in late June straight after the leaving exams are completed. Winners of this game play Carrigtwohill the next round who received a bye. Junior Football League

The good run the Juniors had to the start of the year continues with a strong performance against Carrignavar on Monday last. Scores were thick and fast at the beginning of this game with the scores level five points each after 15 minutes.

Glenville who looked the stronger outfit all through carved out great openings in the Carrig defence could have increased the lead further before the break but for unconverted goal chances.

The goal that looked like always coming arrived just after half time from TJ Forde who latched onto a breaking ball and rattled the roof of the net from close range. Glenville increasing the lead to 1-12 to 0-8 at this stage.

Try as they might Carrig could not get much closer than this and exchanging scores from then on to the finish signalled another brace of points for Glenville .

Final score Glenville 1-15 Carrignavar 0-11.

Best for Glenville were Willie Connolly who kicked some great frees off either foot, Pa Cronin, Joe Colloty, David Quirke, Mossie Keane when introduced at half time and Diarmuid McCarthy. Cathal Whelan also played his first game for the club after his transfer so well done and welcome to the club.

Kelleher Shield loss for Glenville A scoring spree of 1-4 after half time in a nutshell decided this round 5 Kelleher Shield league game in Trabeg in glorious sunshine on Sunday last.

Competing against the strong wind in the first half Glenville did very well to be level at 4 points each with the wind at their backs for the second half. But you don’t loose your focus and concentration and expect a Nemo team to let you in the game which true to form that just what they did.

Totally clinical up front in the second half a very strong Nemo team rattled off a succession of scores mid way through the half that we had no answer to.Glenville battled back to close the lead to four but this was as close at it got as Nemo closed the game out with a number of well taken scores.

In truth this was a disappointing display from Glenville but a learning one all the same as we had several newcomers experiencing this type of intensity for the first time and will no doubt learn for the experience.

At the end Nemo were victors 1-12 to 0-8.

Hopefully the team can get back to winning ways as championship is hot on the horizon.

Glenville have a home game v top of the table Newcestown on Thursday night and this will be another very tough encounter for our side. This will be the last run out before the championship v Mallow on Sunday May 8th..
