Glenville GAA News

As we enter the month of September there is still plenty of action on the horizon with games at all levels.
First of all eventhough the Minor Footballers went down 2-9 to 1-8 against Carbery Rangers in the Premier 2 Minor FC, the team still game a very good account of themselves and with a bit more belief would have taken victory. We trailed 1-5 to no score after 10 minutes getting a horrific start but the team knuckled down to improve considerably as the game went on. Aidan Foley and Brendan Maloney contributed the majority on the scoreboard but they was also notable performances from Niall Griffin, Darragh o Callaghan, Eoin Lynch Denis o Farrell and Colm Fenton putting in a good shift. Unfortunately we were depleted on the night with Dave Hammond, Jack McCarthy ,Kevin o Neill and PJ Dennehy out injured. Two players Dilan o Donovan and Adam Murphy both U15 players played exceptionally well and fitted into the team very comfortably. This team are still not finished yet and have a league cup competition to play in the weeks ahead.
The U16 A footballers continue to prosper in this most competitive of leagues with two great wins over the last week winning 1-9 to 0-6 away to Ballinora and home win over Sliabh Rua 0-13 to 1-9 keeping us in 3rd place in this 11 team league. The Balinora game was a tough game for our team eventhough the scoreline might paint a differant picture. PJ Dennehy scored four great points from the number 5 position while Denis o Farrell and Dave o Flynn also did well. Sliabh Rua were another competant side and we were pretty lucky to hold on to a one point win in the end. We wish Mike Goggin and Colm Fenton well, both sidelined for a period of time with injuries.Glenville have three home games to come v Macroom, Ballincollig and Passage to
The U15 Premier side in preperation for the upcoming championship v Inniscarra played a very strong St Finbarrs side and lost 6-6 to 0-9. The team will have learned a lot from this experience.
Underage training has resumed on Wednesdays in Fouhy Park with all teams from U12 Tto U5 involved. Great to see a crowd of up to 70 kids training last night. As always anyone who can lend a hand would be more than welcome and of course new players are also welcome so if in doubt just turn up !!.

On Friday 17th the U9 team have a 4 team blitz in fouhy park with Fermoy, Cobh and Kilworth also taking part..
Well done to the U10 Footballers who did exceptionally well in the Duhollow ran tournament involving 16 teams from Cork and Kerry. Glenville reached the final and lost out narrowly to Kanturk but fair play to everyone for the effort involved. Jimmy and Eamon have done exceptional work with this team this year and with over 30 session and 20 matches the effort is no doubt paying off with the level of performance and discipline showing up in a very positive light.
The U12 Footballers have a league game on Saturday in Glenville at 2pm v Mitchelstown.
