On the playing front the season kicked off last weekend when the U21 side were in competitive action. Travelling to Mourneabbey Glenville took on the locals Clyda Rovers in the first round of the Dick Cahill Cup. This was a good tough encounter played with a high level of intensity. Glenville held the upper hand in the first half but two late points had the sides level at the break. A TJ Forde goal midway through the second half brought daylight between the sides for the first time . Clyda responded with two good scores but Glenville on the day were the slightly better side and ran out winners with a late flurry of scores. Glenville 1-12 Clyda Rovers 0-9.
On Friday night Glenville played Donoughmore in a challenge game in Fouhy Park. This was another good run out for this team and great preparation for what lies ahead with a busy schedule on the horizon. Championship is due to start in mid February. Aidan Foley with 2-3 had a good outing as did Darragh o Callaghan, Ian o Leary and Gavin Cronin. Donoughmore won out in the end 2-11 to 2-9.
