Glenville GAA Notes

19 January, 2016

Defeats for intermediates and under 21 in opening week.

The Glenville GAA Season kick started last week with two very much anticipating matches down for decider. Last Friday night saw the intermediate go down to a four point defeat at the hands of Kiskeam in the first round of the Tom Creedon Cup  while on Sunday the under 21 were beaten by six points by Kilshannig in the opening round of the Dick Cahill cup.

Intermediate Football Tom Creedon Cup Round 1 v Kiskeam

Venue Fouhy Park

Glenville 0-11

Kiskeam 1-12

With the weather playing havoc at the moment we are forced to stay indoor for training for the time being but all didn’t seem so bad as the intermediate footballers took on Kiskeam in the re appointed fixture that was meant to take place two weeks ago but was called off because the pitch was unplayable at the time. Played in below freezing conditions which were at a staggering -5? The first half was dominated by the opposition with Glenville struggling to get past the half-way point and by the half time interval we were 1-9 to 0-3 down. Glenville showed great character and commitment in the second half which saw us in complete control. There were some super scores in the match but the pick of the scores went to James Gowen in his intermediate debut. In the end we were beaten by four points over all a good and tough match of Gaelic football. The Division 3 League will begin of Sunday February 7th with a home tie against Kinsale. 

Dick Cahill Cup Under 21 v Kilshannig

Venue Fouhy Park

Glenville 1-6

Kilshannig 2-9

The under 21 footballers played their first match of season against Kilshannig in the opening round of the Dick Cahill Cup. Played in Catastrophic conditions and playing against a very strong breeze in the first half it was the opposition that register the opening score. It was a very even first half but the amount of soft frees we gave away almost cost us but we held a narrow three point lead at the half time interval 1-5 to 0-5. However in the second things did seem to go our way as we were completely off the pace? In the end we were beaten by six points over a disappoint performance but the season has only begun and with championship set to begin in three weeks’ time there is a lot of work still to be done.
