Carrigaline are Glenville’s opponents for the fourth round of the Premier Intermediate football championship. Its four years since Glenville met Carrigaline in the championship in Caherlag in which we won in a tough battle the same night but that will have no relevance to the upcoming game. The date for the game is pencilled in for August 1st but if Cork reach the All Ireland football quarter finals it will be pushed back to probably August 7/8th.Of course Nickolas Murphy will be a key figure in the Carrigaline side as well as the Cork set up so we should have a clearer picture after next week’s round of qualifier games as to when we will be in action. The hurlers have been drawn against Tracton and this game goes ahead on Sunday July 25th in Páirc Uí Rinn.

The Premier Intermediate footballers’ preparations are on hold this week as the hurling championship is on next weekend.

The Junior Footballers resumed action after a long break with a very useful work out against Ballyhooly played in Glenville on Friday night. Glenville were rusty enough at the start but improved greatly as the game wore on and after a good tough encounter put up a good showing and lost out in the end 2-9 to 1-9.

The minor team played Canovee in Glenville on Wednesday night and even though we were missing a lot of players we put up a good showing and hopefully this game will bring on players a bit after the summer break. Canovee won out 2-12 to 1-9 in the end.

Clonakilty were visitors to Glenville for a county U16 league game. Again due to holidays, injuries and two of our players playing with Cork U15s we were stretched to the limit numbers wise and did well to fill a team on the night. Our side gave a positive display considering and eventually lost out 5-10 to 2-7.No shame in that at all as Clonakilty had a very good side. Minor and U16 training continue to train diligently as championships approaching its important everyone sticks at it.

Killeagh/Itas were visitors to Fouhy Park on Friday night for a league game against the home side. With championship on Monday night this was our last outing so we needed a good game. Glenville put up a good performance and with a few players missing for championship we will need to be on top form to get the better of our opponents Cobh. This game is on in Glenville on Monday night and support would be appreciated for this team.7 30 throw in for this game.

The U12 side after a lengthy lay off from competitive action played Bride Rovers in the semi final of the league on Monday night played in Rathcormac. Glenville proved too strong for the Rovers side who tried to the end but the greater strength and teamwork was too much for a game Rovers side. We led all through and could have put a lot more scores on the board. But a win is a win and we now move on to the final of this competition against Killeagh/Itas combination which will be a much stiffer test for our side. Final Score Glenville 3-12 Bride Rovers 2-4.

On Saturday last Glenville main GAA pitch was a hive of activity with a well organised U8 football blitz. Glenville, Cobh, Erins Own and Kiltha Og each had two team participating and each team had three games to ensure each player got maximum game time. A great mornings football with all 80 or s players enjoying the morning which was played in glorious sunshine. Well done to the organising committee, referees, and all involved in running such a well run event, refreshments provided wee also welcome to players and mentors alike.
