Glenville GAA Notes by John O Connor, PRO

Junior football league

Glenville 1-11 Glanmire 1-11

After training by 1-6 to 1-1 after 15 mins Glenville did well to claw back into this game in what was a tough competitive encounter. We introduced a nice few young players who did very well and added energy to the side. Level at half time we dominated the second half possession wise but failed to push on in the scoreboard and we had to rely on a last minute free to level the scores. Still a lot of positives and great to see the fresh blood added to the adult teams. With Championship just around the corner a good game to help with preparations. The C team play Midleton this Thursday at 8pm in Midleton

U17 Football Championship
 Round 1 Result
Glanmire 3-6 Glenville 0-10

Lost out to 2 injury time goals but a great performance nonetheless.
Well done everyone.
Youghal and Midleton are the other two teams in our group. Both of these games are in Glenville so all to play for yet.
