Glenville v Arklow Town

11am  16 October 2016

Leinster Senior League, Senior Division
Glenville 2 Arklow Town 2 (att 30)

Although more and more teams seems to play on Friday nights there's still a reasonable choice of games in and around Dublin on a Sunday, especially in the 11 o'clock slot.

Glenville's fixture caught my eye mainly because it was only short drive from my hotel, and at a reasonable level in the league's second tier, rather than any expectations of a great ground.

The address was given as Palmerstown School, and as you might expect it's little more than a pitch, roped off along one touchline, in the school grounds. A grass bank along the near side gives a slightly elevated view.

It was a decent game though, with two well-matched sides coping well with a strong wind. Arklow led 2-1 at half time and looked like gaining all three points, but they were undone by a very late equaliser by the home side.
