Glenville GAA

15 September, 2020

A depleted U11 squad travelled to Bride Rovers in Rathcormac on Saturday the 12th with two teams playing a total of four matches. Fortunately our ranks were swelled by a ferocious U9 who had gone to the wrong pitch for his match. An unseasonable combination of sun and wind made for an energy sapping game but it was heartening to see previously quiet players realise their potential and come alive during the games and make meaningful contributions to the play. The years of training and hard work are beginning to show.  Keep it up lads!
Our u10s had a spirited encounter with Bride Rovers Saturday morning in watergrasshill. We fielded 2 teams and played 4 matches, 2 each in hurling and football. All the kids can be very proud of their performance and it's great to see the improvement week to week. Special thanks to Sam O Leary, Donagh Mchugh and Ronan Lehane from the u9s who played with us. Well done lads

U16 and U14 footballers progressed with two excellent wins.
Our U16s travelled to Cobh to play the home side in Div 1. Glenville with a very tight squad due to injuries blitzed Cobh early on and led 1-8 to 0-1 early on with some superb football. Super scores by Brendan Lehane, Joseph ó Riordan and Eoghan Knapp gave us a fine platform to build from. We continued to play well throughout the second half while defending well with Mick ó Driscoll and Callum ó Mahony excelling, to run out convincing winners. We now move forward and play Midleton for a place in the Final. Well done all on a fine team performance. 
Final Score Glenville 2-18 Cobh 0-7.
U14 East Cork Semi-final D2
Glenville 4-2 (14) St Catherine’s 2-7(13)
An exciting and tight semi-final saw Glenville book their place in the East Cork U14 Final with a single point win over St Catherine’s in Glenville this afternoon.
This was the toughest challenge of the championship and was a tight game throughout. A draw at half-time (2-2 each, goals from Darragh Collins and Cathal O’Brien 2007 and points from Sammy Haberlin and a free from Shane O’Callaghan) meant an intense second half. Catherine’s went 2 points ahead, before Shane O’Callaghan put Glenville ahead by a point with a well struck goal from a penalty. Catherine’s replied with a point before Darragh Collins got his second goal. Catherine’s replied with another two points to leave Glenville ahead by a point with eight minutes to go. This was a period of intense push by Catherine’s and Glenville defended heroically to see the game out with a one-point win. The game was in the balance until the final whistle.
Squad: Adam Hennessy, Billy Ryan, Bobby Kelleher, Cathal O’Brien 2006, Cathal O’Brien 2007, Cathal Sheehan, Ciarán Linehan, Conor McHugh, Conor O’Mahony, Coran O’Neill, Darragh Collins, Darragh Ó Bric, Dean Field, Donnacha Forde, Donnacha O’Leary, Eoghan Forde, Fionn Fitzgerald, Luke Doran-Good, Mike O’Riordan, Olan Hartnett, Ryan Loftus, Sammy Haberlin, Shane O’Callaghan, and Shayne Curtin.
