Saturday May 30th Premier Group 2 under 11 Football League

Venue Glenville

Glenville continued their march through the U11 Central competition yesterday as they earned their third victory of the campaign. Midleton were the visitors on a sunny morning that saw some lovely football being played. As per usual the teams were split in two and two separate games were played. Team 1 found the going tough in the first half of their game. Midleton had a few big physical players and on a tight pitch Glenville found it hard to get scores. Ross Hennessy and Eanna FitzGerald lined up in midfield for Glenville and they were well able to match the physicality of Midleton. It was a great sign when things got tough that these players were able to keep their heads, and soon enough the scores started to come. Team 2 found things a bit easier in their game. Playing with the wind, the full forward line of Colin Healy, Ciaran O’Riordan and Darragh Casey were causing Midleton all sorts of problems. Liam Foley and Eoghan Knapp were working well in midfield, and similar to team 1, they were more than able to match the physicality of the Midleton players. Team 1 were slowly managing to take control of their game. Man of the match Calum O’Mahony was extremely effective at winning the ball in the Glenville forward line, and was rewarded with Glenville’s first goal of the game. Points from Eanna FitzGerald and Colm O’Regan left Glenville leading at half time by 1:6 to 0:3. Team 2 took control in the second half of their game. Daniel Cronin was the key man in this game and his reading of the ball meant he controlled the middle of the pitch throughout. Joseph O’Riordan was very effective when

bursting out of defence and Ciaran O’Leary was dangerous as usual in front of goal. Team 1 had to battle throughout their game. Mike O’Driscoll and Patrick Ryan were solid in defence as usual, and Jamie Curtain may have found a new home in the backline as he was very strong throughout. Cian O’Callaghan made his return to the U11 team this year with a clean sheet in goal. Soon up in the forward line the floodgates were opened and Colm O’Regan and Ben Flanagan began to cut loose. They made the art of goal scoring look easy and by the time the final whistle went, they had put six past the Midleton goalkeeper. Team 2 continued their onslaught on the Midleton goal. Brendan Lehane made some classy runs out of defence, and by the end of the game Glenville were cruising. Another great outing for this Glenville team. The U10s will be travelling to Dromtarrif next week where they will hope to go third time lucky in the competition. The U12s will take on Donoughmore next Saturday away.

Saturday May 30th Richard Gayer Memorial Tournament

Venue Buttevant

On Saturday last our under 14 footballers were invite to participate in the Richard Gayer Memorial Tournament in Buttevant. Four teams took part in this competition with each team playing two games the first a semi- final and the second a final for the cup and for a plate. The others teams that took part in the completion were Glanmire, Buttevant, and Galbally of Limerick. A draw took place to determine who would play in the semi – Final’s we were up against the hosts Buttevant the winners would go on to face Galbally in the final as they won the first semi- final defeating Glanmire. This was a game of only twelve minute a half Glenville decided to play against a very light breeze in the first half and we were only down two points at the interval. Buttevant had their purple patch in the second half as they proved to be too strong for our last as they ran out winners which meant Glenville would face Glanmire in the plate Final. The next match was for the plate in contrast we faced a Glanmire side that have not beaten us at under 14 level in so many years. we decide to play against the light breeze in the first half

but Glanmire came with their A game as they turned up the style on our lads and ran out comfortable winners in the end overall a disappointing day for our under 14 footballer’s but there is great potential in these great bunch of players as we now look forward to the first round of the Premier 2 championship v Eire og on Saturday June 6th. We would like to thank Buttevant for inviting us to take part in this competition.

Juvenile training will continue this Wednesday night from 7-8 in Glenville.
