With no other league games been played we had a chance to go top of the table if we got the three points we needed from our game against Castlelack. We started off slow and it took a while for us to get into the game. Bernard O’Regan came closest for us with a couple of decent efforts that went narrowly wide in the first twenty minutes. We eventually hit the front when some neat play in midfield put Daniel Chute through on goal and he finished neatly under the outcoming keeper.
We received thank you letter from the Children’s Leukemia Assoc regarding the Cheque we paid to them from our Christmas charity event. "We are thrilled with the money that was raised; this will go towards a heart machine in the Mercy soon as some kids that have treatment get heart damage. Thanks. "

Greenwood FC Past Pupils & Pupils of Togher and Glasheen Boys National Schools recently visited the boys of 1st,2nd & 3rd classes in both schools. The Greenwood lads spoke to the kids in both schools telling them of their successes in recent years, winning The Cork U12 Schoolboys League Division 1 in 2012/2013 and also been Runners up in the same U12 Division 1 league the previous year.
This was our first game since the first week of December and after a long Christmas break a good performance was all we were looking for. We got off to a flyer and opened the scoring after 10 mins when Colman McCarthy scored a powerful header from a corner.
Bad weekend for the U15s who met a very strong Bandon first division side in the cup. We were well in the game until the last 10 minutes of the first half with score 0-0. But at half time we were 4 down. We did play alot better in the 2nd half and all substitutes played well. We ended up 7 nil. Need to raise our heads now and push on in the league. Best on the day were Darragh Newman and David Breen.
On Behalf of the Committee of Greenwood Football Club we would like to thank everyone who supported the Fund raising day for the Children’s Leukemia Assoc. We raised €1050.00. Well done and thanks again.
