Premier Intermediate Football Championship

This weekend the Premier Intemediate Football Championship takes centre stage as Glenville go into battle with Na Piarsaigh on Saturday evening. Glenville began the championship in low key fashion but hit form last time out with putting Carrigaline out of the championship. Na Piarsaigh will be a tough physical side who were dropped down from Senior level last year and will be extemely hard to break down.They defeated Kiskeam in the last round 2-17 to 2-10  but if Glenville continue on the same spirit next Saturday as in the previous game we should in with a say at the end of what is expected to be a close tough affair. Best of luck to players and management. Glenville had a useful workout against Youghal last week but championship will bring its own unique proposition entirely.

Minor championship

After recieving a bye in the first round the advantage of match practice was with opponents Carrignavar but in truth this game was over a as a contest in the first 5 minutes as Glenville went for the kill early on and punished ruthlessly with 3-4 to no score inside 5 minutes. The monentum continued with Glenville totally dominant all over the field. Adam Murphy and Darragh o Callaghan hit further scores while any forward treat was snuffed out but a solid Glenville defencive. We continued the rout up until half time as we lead 6-6 to Carrignavars no score. The tempo dropped in the second half ,Glenville giving the bench a run and the game became more open and competitive. Carrignavar registered three scores in quick sucession but Glenville kept the scoreboard ticking. Glenville running out 6-14 to Carrigs 0-7 in the end. Glenville now meet Aghinagh in the semi final,a side that beat us in the U16 semi final two years ago.
