Games played.

Matches were thin on the ground this week with only a handful of games played.The U14s were due to play Youghal on Wednesday night but that was postponed due to Youghals feile involvement.

The U12s continued on their winning ways with a win in the league against Ballinora which was played on Wednesday night in Ballinora.Final score 4-9 to 2-4.

Imokilly footballers bowed out tamely in the county senior football championship in Ballygarvan against a strong Carbery side.Glenville had only a few representatives in Kieran Coakley,Ger Cahill and Anthony Cronin,while Noel O Riordan,Brendan Healy and Paudie Cahill were out injured.

Glenville had five representitives in the divisional U15 which was played in Clonakilty,Kevin o Neill,Darragh o Callaghan,Niall Griffen,David Hammond and Ian o Leary did themselves and the club proud.Colm Fenton and Denis o Farrell did the same with the U14 played in Brinny last Sunday.Well done all involved.

On Friday night the U12s played Fermoy in the league in Fermoy,and after a great game with great indevour on both sides Fermoy nicked the points winning out 3-8 to 2-9.

On Saturday the U11 footballers played Sam Maguires in the league.After a tough first half in which we trailed 2-9 to 0-2,fortunes changed considerably in the second half and we eventually after a great recovery fell short in the end,4-10 to 1-11.

Again on Monday night the U12 played Cobh in Glenville and had a very easy win,getting back to winning ways and kicking some fantastic points in the second half.The team play Glanmire next Monday night in the championship which will be a different game altogether.

The Intermediates had a league game on the same night in Ballygarvan against Valley Rovers.This was a very tough game with tackling and hitting very hard which threatened to reach boiling point at times.Glenville played some excellent football in the first half and lead at the short whistle 0-9 to 0-3.A rejuvenated Innishannon side who won the Intermediate championship last year came storming back in the second half and we went out of the game for long periods in the second half.At the end of the day the first half Glenville show proved just a bridge too far for Valley Rovers to breach and we won out by a solitary point 0-11 TO 0-10 to maintain our good run in this league.Championship is just a few weeks away and we have one game v Newmarket before this which is on Tuesday night.Championship is Friday may 14th in Caherlag.
