U15 Local Cup Q Final - Greenwood 2 Innisvilla 0

Having beaten Bandon & Richmond in the previous 2 rounds we finally secured a Home tie v Premier U15 side Innisvilla in Coffey’s Field on Tuesday 21st April. On a balmy hot spring evening both teams served up a cracker of a tie from start to finish.
A physically superior Innisvilla side were a threat from the off, especially from their set pieces but George Long and Jamie Geasley were again superb at the back. Greenwood settled and Wayne Flood was unlucky with a couple of snap shots from the edge of the box. The opener came on 20 min when Evan Hart disposed a Villa midfielder on the half way line and sent Wayne Flood on his way. Flood picked out an exquisite pass with the outside of his boot to Kenny Lynch who finished 1st time, making what was an extremely difficult chance look easy. 1-0 @ half time.

Driven on by Sean Egan and Brian Goulding there was no let up from the start of the 2nd half. Villa to their credit were giving as good as they were getting, creating scoring chances of their own. 10 min into the 2nd half Darragh O Neill made a fine block in defence and feed Aaron Twohig in the middle who quickly released, the on the night Superlative, Kenny Lynch who somehow beat 3 players along the end line and played a strikers dream ball along the goaline for Ethan Varian to rattle the net, making it 2-0.
There was plenty of goalmouth action at both ends till the end of the game with Greenwood Keeper Darragh Newman somehow pushing a point blank header from 3 yards over the crossbar with 10 min to go. So a 2-0 ¼ Final victory secured its Premier side Ringmahon in the Semi Final at a venue and date to be decided.

U15 28 Mar - Greenwood 6 St Marys 1

Away to a St Marys team that defeated us in Coffey’s Field in Sept 1-0 there was to be no repeat of that today. As previously we started very quickly and created chance after chance. Prompted from midfield by Aaron Twohig & Kenny Lynch in particular the front players were again in top form with Wayne Flood ( 2 ), Ethan Varian ( 2 ) netting following some scintillating passages of football in which the passing and movement was a joy to watch on a fine big pitch in Kilcully. A cracking free kick from Wayne Flood which the keeper failed to hold was netted by Brian Goulding for his 1st goal of the season. Half time 5-1.

The 2nd half continued in the same vain with a lot of chances been created by Fergus O Herhily and Evan Harte. No 6 arrived with Dean Mullins netting following a super pass from left full Jamie Geasley. On an extremely cold, blustery day the back 5,with Sean Egan in particular,were in top form all day.

So on to our final League game v Park United at home, we are level on points with Park so the winner of this game will be promoted to Premier U16 next season. We lost 5-0 away in Mitchelstown in September so we’ll have our work cut out against a very good side in the return game.

U11 Greenwood 0 Carrigaline Hibs 0

Final home league match of the season for the boys and unfortunately we couldn't finish with a win. It certainly wasn't for the lack of trying. The wind made playing conditions very difficult but the lads kept trying to get that elusive goal but it just wasn't to be.


U14 National Cup QF - Belvedere(Dublin) 4 Greenwood 0.

We travelled to Clontarf in Dublin last Saturday to take on DDSL Premier side Belvedere. On a balmy sunny day we kicked off at 2pm. The home side started well and looked sharp from the off. We defended well and repelled most of their efforts in a hectic opening quarter. James Lynam had to come off injured after 15 mins and was replaced by the excellent Sean Foster. We went behind from a set piece after 25 minutes but the lads didn't wilt and were unlucky not to equalize through Ethan Varian. Ht 1-0.

The trend continued in the second half with Belvedere having a lot of possession on the all weather pitch. Our only efforts on goal were through set pieces and from one of these we very nearly equalised. Daniel O Sullivan sent in a great free kick and Sean Foster met it with a tremendous header that looked all over a goal but the Belvedere keeper made a superb save to tip over what everyone on the ground thought was a certain goal. After 60 minutes we were again undone by a set piece free kick that we defended poorly to allow their player to head in their second. It was 2-0 past full-time and belvedere got 2 more in injury time against a tired but defiant Greenwood team. It has to be said that Adam Bruton was outstanding at right back in what was his first full game in that position this season. We had a wonderful run in this cup this year with more highs than lows and hope to give it another crack next year.

We the Management and players would like to thank all those who supported the team on this adventure and also a special word of thanks to Belvedere for looking after the players so well before and after the match and wish them the best of luck in the semi-finals.
