Glenville GAA news


Lotto win

For the second week in a row the Glenville GAA lotto was won. The lucky recipients are the Watergrasshill Ladies football club and we wish them the best of luck on their win. A welcome boost for the club with their County final on Saturday in CIT grounds and we wish them the best of luck in this game, and hopefully they can make up for last year’s defeat also at the same venue.

Games played.

The Junior team were very busy this last week with a game on Saturday evening against Ballinora which was played in Ballinora. This was a very good game for our lads even though we lost the game 2-8 to 1-6 it was great to see a lot of younger players getting a run out

On Monday night then we had a junior 1 football league fixture away to Fr o Neills. Due to no referee showing up for this game Aidan Swayne from the home club took charge and did a good job. To the game itself - a heavy shower before the game made it difficult to play but both sides gave a good honest effort. Our undoing was the concession of three soft goals over the hour and in a game like that you'll find it hard to win any game. Half time saw us behind 2-3 to 0-6.A missed penalty straight after half time didn’t help our cause and from the resultant save o Neills had the ball in the net 10 seconds later. Glenville plugged away but could not eat into the lead so in the end we had to be content with a 3-4 to 0-7 defeat.

We have a home game at last!! this Friday night when Killeagh travel to play us, and we have just two games remaining against Cloyne and Carrignavar to play.

Minor Football

The minors continued their unbeaten run in the MAFL with a facile win over Fr O Neills on Friday night last in Ballymacoda. This was a game where we dominated from the off and only for a brief period in the second half when o Neills reduced the lead to 4 did we feel under any severe pressure. At half time we lead by 1-4 to 0-1 and we increased the lead with two quick early second half points. O'Neill's goaled to cut the lead but Glenville continued to improve as the game went on and ran out 1-12 to 1-5 winners in the end. Championship semi final v Castlelyons is fast looming and should be a severe test for our side.
