Sympathys: Glenville GAA club would like to offer their condoleance’ to the late Timmy Ford who tragically passed away last week. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Timmy family at this sad time.

On the field: Our intermediate footballers got back to winning ways last Tuesday with a win against Mitchelstown. With championship only a few weeks away it was important for our intermediates to regain their status in the Division 3 league after they suffered defeat to Carrigaline in the league two weeks previous. Conditions were good on the day and our lads put on a great performance winning in the end by three points 1-10 to 0-10 the final score.

Our Junior A footballers continued their preparation for their meeting with St Catherine’s in the opening round of the championship this coming weekend with a Challenge game away to Carrigtwohill. Conditions were perfect on the day and our lads put on a great display but were unlucky to be beaten by two points in the end 1-10 to 1-12. We would like to wish our junior footballers the very best of luck this Sunday in the championship.

Our under 16 footballers suffered their first defeat of the league campaign after a hard match against a strong Kilmurry side. Conditions were ideal on the night as this league tie was played under lights in Fouhy Park. Our lads decided to play against the

breeze in the first half and were unlucky to be a point down at the interval 1-4 to 0-8. Kilmurry had their dominance in the second half as they were too strong for our lads and despite playing with 14 players in the second half after James Gowen received a second yellow card we only managed to score 1-1 as Kilmurry ran our winners on a score line of 1-4 to 3-14.

U13 Premier 2 Football League Glenville 4.04 Mallow 2.09

Glenville u13s travelled to mallow to take on the home side in round 3 of the league last Monday evening under lights. It was a very tough game from the off, with our first score coming from the boot of midfielder dara o Leary. Mallow replied with a similar score. From the kick-off we worked the ball up field, with Liam Flynn McCarthy getting on the end of a great move, to shoot past the mallow goalkeeper for a great goal. The mallow forwards were good and when they got going they scored some good points. Glenville were also dangerous in attack and when ben nodwell rattled the net, it put us 2 points up. Mallow upped the tempo before the break and 3 unanswered points left us one point in arrears at the break 2.01 to 1.05. Glenville started the second half well with Keelan, Cathal, conor, mark, Sean og, cael, Liam, Colin and Eoin all stepping up to the mark. An early goal by the very clever Colin o keeffe got us up and running. Straight from the kick out, dara collected, and with a one two with Colin he buried a bullet to the net. The powerful Dara O Leary converted two pointed frees. We were playing with great heart and determination and mallow were finding it hard to get a pattern of play going. Eventually they did, and converted 3 frees on the trot, and when they hit the back of our net, the deficit was down to 1 point. Mallow were well in contention at this late stage and when they levelled it with yet another free the sides were tied. Back came the lads and won a free at a very awkward angle. Up stepped dara and

kicked a monstrous kick straight between the posts. Mallow had an opportunity to score but this was snuffed out by a very tough hard working Glenville defence. A great win for our lads. The whole panel played their part in this victory, with a lot of excellent performances. That's 3 wins from 3 played. Well done lads. Panel. Gary Doyle, mark o Donoghue, Cathal Fitzgerald, conor Gowen, Sean og Barrett, jack Ryall, cael Guichard, dara O Leary, Keelan O Sullivan, Liam Flynn McCarthy, ben nodwell, Gerard Heffernan, Cormac Linehan, Eoin Fitzgerald, Colin o keeffe, Liam o keeffe, ben Whelan.
