On the field: Our under 14 Football took part in the Feile Peil Competition last Saturday morning in Ballincollig. Conditions were perfect on the day with a very soft breeze. Our lads were down to play three games the first against Duragoel Gaels a mixture of Millstreet and Cullen joined together. Glenville decided to play against the breeze in the first half but Duragoel Gaels were too strong in the first half as our lads were down 3-1 to 1-2 at the interval. Our first half score’s came from Eoin Foley, Conor Gowen and Sean Desmond. Duragoel Gaels had the dominance at the start of the second half but our lads tried their very best to get a score but Duragoel Gaels were too strong for our lads as they ran out winners on a score line of 4-3 to 1-2. Glenville second game was against the host Ballincollig both teams played out a great game of football but Ballincollig always looked dangerous on the counter attack and ran out winners on a score line of 4-6 to 1-4. Our score’s came from Conor Gowen, Darragh O’Leary, and Gavin Gowen. Glenville final game was against Bandon and by far this was our best display as our lads were very strong for Bandon in the first half as we led at the interval 3-4 to 2-0. Bandon had their dominance at the start of the second half and looked dangerous going forward. Our lad’s confidence grew as the game progress and Sean Desmond was causing a huge threat for the Bandon back’s every time he got the ball. We finished strong with scores coming from Tim Hegarty, Darragh O’Leary, and Gavin Gowen as we ran our winners on a score line of 5-6 to 3-1. Well done on three magnificent games there is great potential from our lads all played great especially Caden Horgan who gave a man of the match display in all three games.

Our final minor footballers made it four wins from four as they continued their unbeaten run in the Premier 2 league with championship in two weeks’ time. Glenville hosted Mallow in the latest league fixture played on Saturday last in perfect conditions. Our lads decided to play against the soft breeze in the first half but it was Mallow who had the advantage in the opening Minutes with an

early goal but our lads soon began to find their form and with scores coming From Dilan O’Donovan and Josh Cooke reduced the deficit to just one. Glenville were now in full control of the game and a Dilan O’Donovan goal on 15 minutes was exactly what we needed Aaron Spriggs chipped in for a well taken point. Mallow always look dangerous going forward and they got in for their second goal and that followed with five unanswered points. We responded well with two scores coming from Denis Hegarty and PJ Dennehy. Kyle Cronin was causing havoc for the Mallow ball in the full forward line every time he got the ball and was soon rewarded with a goal to bring the scores level at the interval 2-5 to 2-5. The second half was very nip and tuck as two points were scored in the opening 15 minutes one for each team our score game from a Josh Cooke free. Glenville began to come into game more as they began to dominate the midfield area and with scores coming from PJ Dennehy and sub Padraig O’Leary put us up by two points. Mallow showed why they were dangerous going forward as they carved through the Glenville defence and hit a well taken point. Josh Cooke restored our two point advantage with a free. Mallow responded with a point of their own but a Pierce Maloney point put us up by two again. Once again Kyle Cronin was causing havoc for mallow backs and was almost in for another goal but had to do with the point instead. Glenville lost Aaron Spriggs late on for a black card. The game was still nip and tuck going into the final minutes and Mallow point had the deficit back to two points. Mallow once again carved through the Glenville defence and almost snatched the match at the death but their effort just went wide of the post as our lads held on for a two pint win. Well done on a great game of football by far this was our hardest match against one of the strongest teams in the league up next for Glenville is Bishopstown in two weeks’ time in the opening round of the championship.
