Junior A Greenwood 1 Grattan Utd 1

We dominated the first half from start to finish. Everyone from Keeper to forwards played exceptional. We had a number of chances but it wasn't our day in front of goal. We were unlucky with a few long range shots from Brian and Andrew who both looked as if they played at this level for years. Just as we entered injury time in the first half we gave away a silly free kick, one of many in the first half in which Grattan scored totally against the run of play.

Grattan did come into the game in the 2nd half and dominated for periods but we made a few changes we got back into the game and we started to press Grattan back into their own half. When it seemed this wasn't going to be our day we scored deep in injury time with a great goal by Ross Mc Carthy. I can't pick anyone player out to have played well as everyone played brilliant today.

U17's vs Carrigaline National Cup 09-11-14 009

U16 Greenwood 3 Blarney United A 0

Very frustrating first half where we squandered at least five gilt-edged chances. Sides level at half time at nil all.

Game remained level until Dylan Hayes scored with ten minutes left. Then Kyle Murphy scored directly from a corner. Dylan Hayes sealed the win with his second in injury time.

Great performance by the lads and deserved three nil win. New signing Ignacio came on for last thirty minutes and had two very near chances at goals. Cian Murphy also came on as did Tony O'Leary .

U11 Leeds 3 Greenwood 0

Well our winning run had to end at some stage and today was the day against a very strong and talented Leeds side. We started very brightly and played some very good football in the first 10 mins and were unlucky to have a goal disallowed. Leeds came back strongly and some good defending kept us in the game. However a well taken goal by Leeds meant we went in one down at half time.

We started the second half well and were unlucky when we hit the crossbar only to see Leeds go up the other end to score a second. The lads kept going and tried their very best to get back into the game but it wasn't to be and Leeds got a third and ran out deserved winners. The lads deserve great credit for their effort today. They were very disciplined, never gave up, and tried their very best and gave their all. Well done to all the lads today.

U11 Greenwood 7 Buttevant 0

At a very wet and windy Coffeys Field this morning the lads recorded a home victory. Playing against the wind in the first half the lads defended well and the confidence grew as the half progressed. A superb free kick an an excellent save meant we went in at half time one up.

There was no let up in the wind and rain in the second half but both teams kept going to their great credit in what was very difficult conditions. A number of quick goals eased the pressure for the last tens minutes and the lads eventually ran out 7:0 winners.

Scorers for Greenwood:
3 Ben O Connor
1 Stephen Crowley
1 Ali Baker
1 David Egan
1 Brian Horgan

Evan Kidney RIP

Our Club is very proud of all our young people who gave Evan such a magnificent send off and who behaved in such a dignified and respectful manner over the past week. Evan would be so proud of each and every one of you.

We would also like to thank St. Finbarrs, Dave Barry, Togher Scouts, Coláiste an Spioraíd Naoimh, Togher Community Association, Kieran Whyte and all who helped us in the past week. We would also like to thank Siobhan, Aaron ,Dylan and Laurance O Sullivan for allowing us to take part in Evan’s Funeral and for opening up their home to us all.

He will be forever 17 and will be in the minds and hearts of all in Greenwood forever more. All Greenwood games for this weekend have been cancelled as a mark of respect. R.I.P. Evan.

Evan Kidney RIP

As you will be aware by now, the death has occurred of our U18/U19 player Evan Kidney, RIP. Evan was a most talented and popular young man who touched the lives of all those around him and our Club will be a poorer place for his passing. Evan played for Greenwood's Academy through Schoolboys and more recently with our U18s/U19s. We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his mother Siobhan, his father Laurance O Sullivan and brothers Aaron & Dylan.

U16 Midleton 1 Greenwood 1 - Lost 5-4 on Pens

We played Midleton away this morning in a Cup match at 10:30. Dylan Hayes was suspended. We lost the match on penalties.

We went 1-0 up in the first half through a header from a corner by Reece Donovan. They equalised with about 15 minutes left. Match went to extra time. Still level at full time. 4-4 in penalties. Went to sudden death. They scored and we missed.

David Mullins suffered a significant knee injury and had to come off in extra time. We could not replace him as we had used all five subs at that stage. Conor O’Mahony also came off injured. We had about ten times more chances and did not convert.

Greenwood 1 Pearse Celtic 1

An outstanding performance by our Juniors today which helped us get our first point on the board. In very windy conditions it is hard to single anyone out as everyone gave full Commitment. With the wind to our backs in the first half we were very comfortable and could have gone in at half time a goal or 2 up.

In the second half playing into the wind we were up against it. Brian Drinan chased down a lost ball and cleared it. Before the ball went wide Colin McCoy kept it in and put Ross McCarthy through. Ross broke and was unlucky not to score but Mark Sweeney was there to score with the follow up and put us 1 up. We soaked up a lot of pressure from Pearse but with approx 15 to go in what seemed to be a wide ball a Pearse player knocked it back into play which hit a Greenwood player in the back of the head and it was 1 all. Game finished 1 all. Well done to all especially Brian Drinan who was outstanding on goal today.
