On the field: There were wins for the Glenville under 21 footballers last Wednesday night in the Dick Cahill cup plate last 16 match against Mayfield. Both teams played a great game of football with some free flowing scores on a calm Wednesday night under lights in Fouhy Park Mayfield started the better of the two sides with some neat passage of play to open the score after 2 minutes. Glenville hit back on the counter attack and a Brendan Maloney goal from a free had the home team up and running both teams traded points at both ends of the field with the tie swinging in favour of Glenville further

points from Brendan Maloney and Ben Halbert helped Glenville to a 1-5 to 0-6 point lead at the interval. Glenville continued the dominance in the second half with some lovely point coming from Brendan Maloney Denis Buttimer and Josh Cook helped Glenville get the win that they deserved. Mayfield tagged on some late points but at the full time whistle it was Glenville that ran out winners on a score line of 1-11 to 0-11. Glenville will not face passage in the quarter final next week. Scores Brendan Maloney 1-5 (1-3 from frees) Colm Fenton 0-1 Ben Halbert 0-1 Denis Buttimer 0-1 Josh Cook 0-3.

The Glenville intermediate footballers were unlucky to lose out to kiskeam in the Tom Creedon cup quarter final played on Sunday last. Glenville came into this match in good form after a comfortable win against Glanmire the previous week. Played in breezy condition Glenville started off the better of the two teams with some brilliant hand passing and creating scoring opportunities with scores coming from Ben Halbert, Brendan Maloney and Paudi Cahill had the home team 0-3 point to 0-1 up after 10 minutes. Kiskeam who were finding it hard to get past the Glenville fullback line were forced to kick scores from impossible angles but the flow of the game fell to kiskeam as they hit 2-3 without reply but two Dilian O’Donovan points on the stoke of half team reduced the deficit to 5 points with Glenville trailing 2-4 to 0-5 points at the interval. The second half saw Ger Cahill register the opening point as Glenville began to find their way back into the game. Kiskeam who were beginning to find there form took complete control scoring 0-6 points without reply Glenville only response was a Ciarn Coakley point as kiskeam ran out winners 2-10 to 0-7. Glenville will now face Glanworth in the first round of the league at home on Sunday February 8th. The minor footballers
