Happy Christmas

On behalf of all at Greenwood Football Club Committee, we want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.

Hi everyone and posting a Christmas image to start off the Christmas season from me to you. This is the front bay window display my wife has put up every year since we bought our home and this is my first image I have ever taken of our decorated window, guess I took it for granted and what it means to my wife. Mr and Mrs. Clause were given to my wife and I after my mother in law passed, they were always in her window and now my wife (Bridget) carries on her tradition.</p>
<p>NOTE: Christmas, a day to celebrate the Birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ. A day for us to reflect on our blessings and to remember how precious every day is. It's about family, friends and even wishing a stranger a very Merry Christmas!</p>
<p> To the start of a Very Merry Christmas season to all my friends on Flickr !</p>
<p>Working on something special for Christmas to give to family members but will post it first to flickr for suggestions in the next  week. Only the children receive gifts,the adults make gifts for each other so this year should be interesting and hopefully what I am working on will work out.</p>
<p>stay well</p>

U16 Avondale 0 Greenwood 3

We played away to Avondale United this morning. Our unbeaten run continues with a great 3-0 win.

Neil Cremin scored via a deflection directly from a corner to open the scoring. Jonathan Keeffe adding one mid way through the first half and another just after half time to seal the result . It was a very welcome clean sheet also. All five subs were used in a very good squad display . This victory keeps us top of the league. It has been an excellent start to the season and the lads have adapted very well to playing up in this new division following promotion last year.

Junior A - Greenwood 2 Coachford 1

On a very windy and cold morning the lads were again in great form. Against the wind we were well on top in most parts of the first half with Denis O Brien and Colman Mc Carthy dominating midfield. We fell behind midway through the half in what was probably Coachford's only chance of the first half. We still outplayed them for the remainder of the half but without little chances to score.

In the early stages of the 2nd half we had a throw ball at the half way line, with a couple of good passes from Jamie to Colman and then onto Brian who sent a lovely ball over the top for Michael O Donovan to run onto who the slid the ball under the Keeper. Our dominance of the game could be seen from Coachford and with 15 minutes to they had a player sent off. We then chased the win and Pushed Brian forward who broke with 4 minutes to go and headed for the box where he was taken down for a penalty which was put away by Mickey Cronin, Again a fantastic performance by all the players and got a well-deserved win after 3 straight 1 all draws.

U11 Greenwood 0 Midleton 3

It just wasn't to be for the boys today against a strong Midleton side. We just couldn't get a foothold in the game despite the lads very best efforts. After going a goal behind the lads kept going and tried their best to get an equaliser before half time but it wasn't to be. Again in the second half they kept going in search of the equaliser but 2 goals in the last 10 mins meant Midleton ran out deserved winners.

U11 Greenwood 5 Rockmount 2

After a couple of games being postponed recently it was great to get back to action today. The lads certainly showed that they missed playing as they started very strongly and raced into a 3:0 lead. A couple of unfortunate injuries broke the rhythm and it stayed at 3:0 at half time.

On to the second half and Rockmount were starting to grow more and more into the game and even though we scored another to make it 4:0 they looked very dangerous on the break and managed to pull two back before a late goal put the game to bed.

Scorers for Greenwood:
Ben O Connor 2
Cian McCarthy 1
Ali Baker 1
Conor Hegarty 1

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.
