Glenville GAA news

Main sponsor Barry Martin Kennedy auctioneers LTD.

Big game this week is the replay of the Premier Intermediate football championship in Páirc Uí Rinn. This game was very close the last day and another tough titanic struggle is expected against the 2009 Intermediate Champions. Glenville will be hoping that the many injuries accrued in the last month or so will be sorted and we will have most of the injured players available but what ever 15 takes the field it should still be a tough task. As of yet the time for the game is unclear as Nemo and St Nicks in the SFC form part of the double header so check locally time but it will be either 5.15pm or 7pm on Sunday night .Support greatly appreciated.

On Saturday 29th the Juniors Footballers are due to play a league game against Cloyne. This game is an away game but may yet be played in Lisgoold. Check locally for time.

This Thursday the minors play Nemo in a challenge in Nemo. Game begins at 7pm while also on Thursday the U10s travel to Aghada to play the home side in a league game.

Wishing all the teams the best of luck this weekend and hopefully the Intermediates will prolong the season with a win on Sunday night.

Lotto won

The big news from the GAA lotto team is the jackpot with a sum of €3800 was won on Tuesday last by Francis Sweeney. Congrats Francis on the win from all in the club.

Games played

The Junior team had a league game in the Junior 1 league when we travelled to Lisgoold. Conditions were appalling for the game with a rock hard surface and driving rain making conditions extremely difficult to play football. Glenville on the night played very good football to be fair and carved out great scores against an overworked Lisgoold defence. A 2-6 to 0-6 half time lead was justified and improved on in the second half this time wind assisted as Glenville picked off some great long range scores to embellish the situation further. In the end Glenville won out on a 2-15 to 1-7 score line.

On the same night the U10 football league resumed when Glenville played Youghal in Fouhy park. Glenville played great football in trying conditions and this very talented squad continue to make progress, winning out well in the end.

The minor team preparing for the next round of the championship with a game against Kilworth on Friday evening last. With conditions excellent our play was far from impressive with a first half which was very substandard Kilworth holding a 2-8 to 0-3 lead. Glenville improved greatly and a better attitude made for a better performance. In the end Kilworth were still ahead in the end 2-10 to 2-9.

Best wishes to John Halbert this weekend in the All Ireland Intermediate Final v Kilkenny.
