Glenville GAA News.


The U14 football team had their first run out in championship action on Monday night. Cobh were the opposition and played in lovely sunny conditions in a well groomed Glenville venue. Cobh were quick into their stride and had a point from play from the throw in. On the next attack Glenville worked the ball up the field and Adam Murphy rattled the net for a well worked goal. This goal sparked off a real goal fest on both sides. Fourteen goals scored on the night, most out of the top drawer. Glenville held a strong advantage at half time leading by 5-5 to 1-3 and extended the lead after the break with another well cultivated goal. Cobh had their period of supremacy and unlocked the Glenville defence on a number of occasions. In the finish Glenville won out 9-8 to 5-7.Youghal up next in the next round. A much stiffer test expected but hopefully home advantage might be worth a few scores.

U10s had a league game on Wednesday night when Carrigtohill were visitors to Glenville in a league game. Again this very talented group of players gave a great display and in a high scoring game full of great moves by both sides Carrigtohill prevailed by a goal margin.

This weekend is another very busy one for the club as tonight Thursday our own John Halbert lines out for the Cork Intermediate hurling team in the Munster Final against Waterford. We wish John the very of luck.

Also we done to two of our up and coming stars Kevin O Neill and Niall Griffin who both lined out for the Cork U15 footballers in the Munster Intercounty championship last weekend. Both preformed to their usual high standards.
