Glenville GAA news


Salvation for Glenville, agony for Newmarket, probably in a nutshell sums up Friday nights third round of the Premier Intermediate Football in sundrenched Mourne Abbey. Forced to line out without Kieran Coakley, Mossie Barry and Anthony Cronin from the Bantry game Glenville began well when Pat O Brien kicked over in the opening few minutes but Newmarket opened up and began to take control early on. A well worked goal on ten minutes opened up a 1-3 to 0-1 lead. Slowly Glenville cut the deficit even though were playing against a very strong wind we knocked over some very good scores the pick of them a great score from Sean O Leary after he weaved his way around the Newmarket defence after a 50 yard run. A brace of scores left us in a good position at half time 1-5 to 0-7.Turning to face the wind in the second half we began to take complete control with a power packed display of strong attacking football. A great pass from John Halbert found Paudie Cahill who turned and finished a great shot to the net for as good a goal as you'll see. Credit to Newmarket they kept trying but could find very little head way against a well organised defence who forced them into kicking under pressure and in doing so only conceded three points in the second half and two of those at the very end. Midfield was very dominant and controlled matters in that area while up front every forward looked capable of beating their men. Newcomer Ger Hogan and Pa Cronin both minor players slotted into the fray very well, and enjoyed their taste of the action. In the end the 1-11 to 1-8 did not probably reflect Glenville’s dominance and the five minutes of injury were tense but Glenville move on in confident mood to round four of the championship while Newmarket prepare to play Glanmire in the relegation decider. Glenville will have a break now for a number of weeks for the next round which is pencilled in for early August. With the hurlers down to play on July 23/24th.

Away from Intermediate matters the minor team resumed to action after the exams with a game against Donoughmore played in Donoughmore .A very good work out here for the side 1-16 to 0 –17 it finished up.

The U16s also returned to action with a County league game against Dohenys played on Wednesday night in Glenville. This proved a difficult game for our side with several players missing but in fairness the team played well and were defeated in the end by 3-9 to 1-7.Their next game is against Clonakilty on Wednesday night in Glenville. Throw in 8pm.

U14 Championship not too far away he side continues to prepare and had a few games in the last week. Fermoy proved too strong winning 2-16 to 3-6 while Glenville were far too strong for mid cork side Gleann na Li.

The U13 side played Nemo also in the past week winning out 5-14 to 3-15 after a free flowing game of football.

The U10 League continued with Glenville defeating Kiltha Og played in Dungourney and going down to Erins Own in the U9 league. The U8 side had a game against Whites Cross which was played in Fouhys and they travelled to Ballyclough to play the home side in game. The hectic schedule for this group of players continues when Bride Rovers travelled to Fouhy Park on Wednesday night also to play Glenville and everyone enjoyed the games even though the weather was not kind to us.
