Glenville GAA Club News

19 February, 2013

Weather conditions proved hazardous last weekend as the beginning of the Intermediate Football League against Grenagh fell foul to the weather. Disapointment that the game could not take place but the year is long and they will be plenty time to catch up. This weekend Glenville travel west to take on Cill na Martra in the League. Time yet to be finalised so check locally for details.

The Junior A and Junior C teams will know on Wednesday night as to when league action will commence due to a rearrange of the current league set up. Hopefully this will be sorted out and the Leagues will be up and running at the weekend. Again check locally for fixtures.

Anyone looking to be signed up on the club fixture system contact Paud o Neill 087 9890964 and he will add you to the group texting system.

Glenville Minors continued their impressive start to the league with a good win over Carrig na bhFear last Saturday. On very tough underfoot conditions in the Sacred Heart College grounds in Carrig Glenville took a while to settle but once we got motoring we began to dominate all over the field and ran out very easy winners. Half time score was 3-7 to 2-1 with Adam Murphy Daniel Fitzgerald and Darragh o Callaghan scoring fine goals. The second half went in a similar vein with again the forwards showing well and engineering some good scores. Overall an impressive performance.Final Score Glenville 6-12 Carrig na bhFear 2-6. The next Minor game is at home to St Vincents on Monday night Feb 25th in Fouhy Park.

St Vincents hosted Glenvilles U14 team on Sunday morning for the second game in the league. A gale force wind caused havoc with the game as Glenville playing against it found themselves 6-3 to no score down at half time. A transformed second half show saw Glenville in total dominant mood and trimmed the score to a goal neat the end but Vincents held out for a narrow win 8-3 to 6-5. Well done to both sets of players who braved the elements and provided a thrilling display.

The U16 second team playing in the central 3 league for all second teams found the going tough as travelling to Nemo is never an easy hunting ground. Glenville did well in the opening half scoring 2-5. Sean Keane finishing two good goals but Nemo lead at half time in a funny scoreline Nemo 5-0 to Glenville 2-5. Where did you see a team scoring 5 goals and no point in a half. Nemo wind assisted kicked on in the second half and finished up well ahead 7-15 to 2-6 winners. The positives is that its giving game time to many players who otherwise would be redundant at this time of the year. Glenville are home to Carrigaline in the next round.

Glenville U16 A team playing in Premier 2 will be in action next Wednesday night v Charleville in Fouhy Park in the first round of the league.

Again the Lotto is still in tact. No winner of last weeks jackpot of €8800.

Juvenile training

Any new players interested in coming out can  contact Dave Cooke at 087 6125719. Again with so many numbers out training the work load is increasingly tougher so anyone willing to give just one hour out there time a week would be so much appreciated and would ensure a smoother running of an ready well organised set up. The financial rewards of course will not entice but the enjoyment in seeing the up and coming stars performing and improving is something that money cant buy anyway and you have the opportunity to be a part of that process. Many hands make light work.

Membership is now due and can be given to your coaches at training. Juveniles and Students €25 ,adult is €60.
