Glenville GAA News

Busy weekend ahead with the Final of the U14 Football in Ballinlough on Sunday night and the 4th round clash in the Premier Intermediate football championship on Saturday making it a very busy weekend for Glenville GAA gaels.

Glenville have a very difficult assignment in the form of Nemo Rangers. Nemo come into this game on the back of a big win over St Vincents and will be firm favourites to advance but if Glenville can reproduce the form in the last round over Carrigaline can give ourselves a great chance.

Preparation hasn’t been great with hurling taking centre stage the last few weeks but that’s all part and parcel of juggling both codes and our lads are well used to it at this stage.

Great to see big support again in Riverstown on Saturday night. Throw in is at 7pm.

Best of luck to all involved on Saturday night U14 Football Final Sunday night Glenville take the field in Ballinlough for the final of the U14 championship when we play Douglas or Mayfield.

This promises to be a cracking final with a great standard of footballers on show. Glenville have came through to this stage in great style and will be keen to take the first football trophy since the introduction of the new Coiste na Nog set up. We wish all players and management the best on Sunday night. Time for this game is 7.30pm which is proceeded by the B final at 6.15pm.

Glenville got a tough game, eventhough the scoreline might suggest otherwise against Blarney in the semi final on Monday night last. Blarney were a strong physical outfit and it took a long time for our lads to shake them off but well done to everyone who played their part on the night. Eoin Hammond was very good in goal with PJ and Dilan in midfield very competitive.

Conor o Leary and Michael Goggin were the goal scorers in the first half. Leading by 5 points at the break the game was far from done. Kyle Cronin and Dylan McCarthy getting the goals midway through the second half to set us on the way to victory. A strong finish to the game left a gloss on the scoreboard that Blarney deserved to be closer after putting in a good hours work.

Glenville 7-11 Blarney 2-10.

Well done Kevin and PJ Well done to the two lads who played leading roles in both Cork U16 and U14 teams respectfully.

Kevin lined out in midfield as Cork won out the Munster U16 title v Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds while the U14 team lost out to Tipperary in the semi final. PJ preformed very well in midfield for the team. Well done to the two lads on doing the club proud.
