Feile Footballers prepare for busy weekend

This week the U14 footballers grab the limelight when they take the field for the All Ireland Feile Football which is held in Cork. Teams from all over the 32 counties will be represented including teams from New York and London . Glenville will be in a group consisting of Mattock Rangers from Louth ,St Marys of Sligo and Cork clubs Carrigtwohill and Russell Rovers. Thursday sees the first games taking place in Carrigtwohill where Glenville play Mattock Rangers at 12 noon and play St Marys at 2pm also on Thursday. On Friday we play Carrigtwohill at 10am and Russell Rovers at 11am also in Carrigtwohill. With only one team to go through to the knockout stages . Best of luck to the management and all 24 players .

Glenville qualified for the U14 league Final with a solid win over Mayfield on Monday night in very wet conditions. The foundations were laid for this game in the opening half where Glenville took control early and built up a nice lead. Mayfield reduced the game to a goal at one stage but Glenville had too much firepower in the finish. Glenville 2-15 Mayfield 3-5.

Championship Action

Next week will be a busy week on the championship ship as both Glenville Intermediates and Minors will be in action. Glenville got the short straw when faced with St Finbarrs in the Minor Football preliminary round game drawn away in Togher. This game is on Monday July 4th with a 7.30 throw in. The Intermediate Footballers will hope the season takes a turn for the better when facing Carrigaline on Sunday July 10th in round 3 of the championship. Both these games are knockout games so a win is certainly a must to remain in the championship race on both counts.
