Junior 3 League
Glenville third string made it two wins in a row with an impressive first half show pinning the way for a comfortable win over Aghada on Thursday night last. Glenville again moved the ball very well and carved out great scoring opportunites early on. An early goal from John Dorgan set the game in motion. Aghadas response was rapid with two points in sucession but from then on it was all Glenville with well taken scores from Joe Culloty, Cathal Whelen, Shane Bergin and Aidan Foley. Glenville led 1-7 to 0-2 at half time. As expected Aghada mounted a charge in the second half and chipped away at the lead. Glenville began to get a foothold in the second half and matched Aghada score for score. Aghada needed a goal to resurrect any hope of a close finish but the defence was in reluctant mood to give any inch to the Aghada forward unit. Well done to both sides on a good sporting game. Final Score Glenville 1-11 Aghada 0-7.

Junior A Footballers win in Castlemartyr
A solid workmanlike performance in blustery conditions propelled Glenville to another win in thr East Cork JAFL on Sunday morning last. This was a tough outing with the cross field wind making it very difficult for any sort of fluent football. Glenville playing against the elements were quick off the blocks with driving displays from Mike o Donoghue Ger Cahill and Edward o Connell moving well. Mossie Keane and Shane Bergin were very dangerous in the inside line and Glenville slowly begin to open up a lead. Castlemartyr mainly due to free kicks maintained in touch and went in trailing 0-6 to 0-4. Glenville took over in the second half and the introduction of Brendan Maloney and Aidan Foley made an immediate impact kicking the opening four scores. Brendans opening score was a gorgeous effort from the tightest of angles. At this stage one could only see but one winner as Glenville continued to carve out openings in the hosts defence. Leading 1-11 to 0-6 Castlemartyr mounted a late surge with the help of easy frees. A goal in injury time gave them a lifeline trimming the lead to the most dangerous of leads. Glenville hung on to take both points. Midleton are visitors to Fouhy Park on Wednesday night for the next round of the league. Final Score Glenville 1-12  Castlemartyr 1-10.

U15 Footballers remain unbeaten

Eire Og were visitors to Glenville on Saturday for the latest round in the Premier U15 Football league. Eire Og made things difficult in the opening twenty minutes or so and scores were hard to come by on both sides. PJ Dennehy got us off the mark and it wasn’t until the 20th minute when Adam Murphy dispatched to the net that daylight began to come between the sides. Further scores left us 2-7 to 0-3 ahead at half time. Glenville continued to dominate as the game wore on with superior team work causing all sorts of problems in the Eire Og defence. Adam PJ, Josh continued to keep the scoreboard ticking. The score of the game however came when Ciaran Curtin took the last pass after a great move and lashed a shot to the roof of the net from all of 25 yards.
