Games played

The U12 side were meant to play Glanmire in the first round of the championship last Monday but unfortunately our opponents failed to field a team surprisingly enough.They now move on to play Cobh in the semi final of this competition on Monday night in Glenville.

The U14 team kick into gear after a few weeks lay off without a game with a league game against Youghal on Friday night last played down in Youghal.Conditions for this game were very wet making control of the ball that bit more difficult.Glenville were playing against the strong wind in the first and did well to contain an amount of pressure early on.Glenville without a game for a while gradually got in to their stride and moved the ball very well at times.Our approach play was good but finishing left us down at times but that it something that should improve as the year goes by.At the end of a very good hours play Youghal held a two point advantage 4-3 to 1-10.Next game is against Macroom away next Sunday.

The minors played their last game before the exams break against Premier side Fermoy, Glenville were very low on numbers for this game but still did well in the first half trailing by a goal at half time.The second half was a different story as Fermoy upping the pace and running out winners 4-9 to 1-5

The minors team and U16s have a break from action for a few weeks now due to exams so we wish all doing exams the very best.These teams will return to action in late june.

All roads lead to Caherlag next Friday night where the 2010 Intermedaite Premier football championship kicks into action for the Glenville side.So far this year Glenville have been competing in the Div 2 of the County Football League, and doing well beating O Donovan Rossa, Mallow and Valley Rovers so far in the league after five games but on our last outing against Newmarket in a challenge game on Thursday we took a bit of a lesson from the Duhallow men losing 3-11 to 0-7 so a major improvement is needed to surmount the Mayfield challenge.Time for this game is 7.30pm in Caherlag.Last year Glenville went out of the championship at the same venue so will be determined to start the championship on a winning note.
