Glenville GAA news

Games played

The main action this week featured juvenile with the main emphasis being on the U13 Footballers who continued on their winning ways with a great win over Russell Rovers in the semi final played in Castlelyons on Sunday last. This was a roller coaster ride as the pendulum swung from side to side on a number of occasions before Glenville s determined play got them over the line in extra time with outstanding displays from all the team. Glenville winning 5-7 to 5-3.
The Final was against a highly rated Kilmurry side who had beaten all before them on route to this final. Playing against a gale force wind in the first half Glenville conceded a penalty inside the opening 10 seconds which they scores to give Kilmurry a great start. Glenville began to have a major influence on the trend of the first half with some outstanding team work setting up a wave of attacks in which Dan Dennehy, Andrew Desmond James Gowen and Shane o Regan were to the fore. Glenville carved out some great chances and reflected in the scoreboard at half time Glenville were very pleased with the performance on level terms 3-3 each and the gale at our backs in the second half looked good for a win. Kilmurry had other ideas and began to frustrate our game with crowding the defence. Glenville found the going tough in engineering scores but in fairness looked the likely side to win all through. Some great defending prevented Glenville on numerous occasions and in the end our honest and positive approach just fell short. Well done to everyone who gave it everything and can look forward to the future with renewed promise, well coached, well drilled and honest and committed in their approach. A trait which is great to see in any side. Glenville not done yet have a County semi final to play this weekend as with the size of the Eastern Region two teams qualify so next weekend’s semi finals we have Bantry v Glenville and Kanturk v Kilmurry. Hopefully Glenville will recover from this defeat and get the show on the road again. Final score Kilmurry 4-4 Glenville 3-5. One has to mention and not for the first time this has happened that a championship final played with no umpires or linesmen on show. Surely the least these up and coming players deserve is respect from the powers that be and provide the necessary officials. They are the future of our games after all..!!

Glenville junior team travelled to Douglas to play the home side and lost out 2-6 to 0-9 after a well worth exercise. The U16 Footballers played Glanmire and had a comfortable win played in Sallybrook 5-14 to 2-13 it finished up. The U14 team played Russell Rovers in the league and lost out 1-14 to 5-8 which was played in Shanagarry on Thursday night last. With a severely under strength the U12 side were beaten 2-4 to 4-6 by Erin’s Own on Wednesday last. While the same night the juveniles held a series of games in Fouhy Park v Bride Rovers from aged 6 to 8. In total we had 45 players played and everyone enjoyed the experience. An U6/7 and 8 games v Whites Cross has been organised for Friday night in Fouhy Park.
