Saturday June 6th under 12 A football League

Venue Donoughmore

Donoughmore 1:3 Glenville 5:9 Glenville made the journey to mid cork on Saturday to play Donoughmore. Glenville had a slow start to this league losing our first two games and winning our last outing against Erin’s Own, so a win here today was vital. Glenville had a bright start. Mark O'Donoghue was Glenville's key man in the first 10mins and scored 1:1 in this time to get Glenville up and running. Colin O'Keefe was causing the Donoughmore back line a lot of trouble and picked off a few lovely scores. In midfield Eoin FitzGerald began to take charge, and he made some great runs and Donoughmore had no answer to this. Daniel Cronin was Eoin's midfield partner. He was marking the Donoughmore danger man and had to be on the top of his game throughout. Glenville began picking off the scores very well throughout the first half and a long ball from Colin O'Keefe was expertly deflected into the goal by Ben Flanagan. Liam O'Keefe, who was late to the match due to a SatNav malfunction was introduced early on and was made a great contribution to his team. The score was 3:3 to 1:1 at half time. Although the forwards were causing havoc throughout the game, it was the dominance of the Glenville backs that was most impressive today. In particular the full back line of Eoghan Knapp and Patrick Ryan was arguably the winning of the game, and this young pair seems to be improving with every game they play. In the halfback line, there was no getting the better of Sean Murphy, Donal Sheehan and centre back Davin Sullivan. Glenville won well in the end. Colm O'Regan almost scored a spectacular goal late on when he lobbed the goalie only for the ball to rebound off the post. He followed this up with a great hand pass over the bar, a score which would not have looked out of place in Fitzgerald’s Stadium or Croke Park! Glenville will have a break now for two or three weeks, but will return with and important game against league toppers Kiltha Og.

Saturday June 6th Premier 2 under 14 Football Championship

Venue Ballinue

Eire Og 7-14

Glenville 5-4

On Saturday last saw our under 14 footballer’s travelled down north to Ballinue for the first round of the premier 2 football championship. Eire Og were the opposition on a sunny afternoon which saw some lovely football being played. As per usually we played against the light breeze in the first half but it was our opponents who would register the opening two points in the space of two minutes. From the resulting kick out we worked the ball up the field to Sean Desmond who scored the opening goal of the match to put us up by one but the scoring spree didn’t stop there as Glenville would get in for their second goal of the match coming from Rob Mc Kenna which followed moments later with a point. However we were unable to keep up this frantic pace as Eire Og Broke past the Glenville Defence and buried the ball in the back of the net. Once again Sean Desmond was causing havoc for the Eire Og full back line and the combination of Desmond and Ger Heffernan set up Rob Mc Kenna for his second goal that was followed later with a white flag been raised thanks to a Davin O’Sullivan point. Eire og who were always dangerous going forward hit 3-2 without reply but once again the Glenville response was empathic as Sean Desmond got out first to the ball and broke past the Eire Og defence as buried the ball down low to keeper’s right to score Glenville fourth Goal of the game. On form Rob Mc Kenna hit over his second point to leave the scores 4-3 to 4-4 with half time approaching. Eire Og finished the half strong as they hit over the last three points to leave the scores 4-7 to 4-3 at the interval. Eire og purple patch continued in the sound half as they dominated the midfield area out scoring us 3-7 to 0-0 in the apace of twenty five minutes. The Glenville full back line tried the heart and soul out trying to keep the Eire Og forward line from at bay. We finished the half strong thanks to a Conor Gowen point and a James O’Leary goal. In the end Eire og ran out deserving winners on a score of 5-4 to 7-14. Well done to Eire Og on their win a fair deuce to our lads who kept going right to the very end all played brilliant ye did the club proud. However this is not the end of the championship for the under 14 as now we will go into a plate competition with our opponents to be St Nick’s in two weeks’ time.
