Club News

25 August, 2014

On Monday Aug 18th Midleton Ladies Football Club held their annual Football Camp. Boys and Girls from ages 6-12 years registered for a week of fun and games while learning the skills of the game. Under the guidance of Camp Co-Ordinator Charlie McLaughlin they were divided into different groups and were put through their paces head to toe in their O’Neills Kit. Many thanks to all those who helped out in any way to make it a huge success. We are looking forward to next year already.

U12 League Semi-Final Midleton v Glanmire A
Midleton 1-5 Glanmire 3-8
The Midleton U-12 girls travelled to ‘Buck Learys field’ in Glanmire last Friday 22nd August to take on Glanmire in the Semi-final of the East Cork C Football League. The girls put in a sterling performance all through the game and the final score is rough justice on these bunch of very committed and eager girls. It didn’t help our cause that we had no subs on the night so couldn’t introduce fresh legs when needed.
Glanmire settled into the game quickly and took the lead early on. But Midleton soon found their rhythm and began to play some really impressive football. However we found it difficult to break down the Glanmire defence. The first half ended with Glanmire leading comfortably by 3 goals. This game was much tighter than the score board displayed. Midleton were very unlucky on a number of occasions not to rattle the Glanmire net. The breaking ball didn’t go their way.
Words of encouragement by their coach Pa Beausang at half time and a few positional switches steadied the ship. This resulted in a much better defensive display in the second half with Glanmire finding it difficult to get scores. Midleton put a lot of pressure on the Glanmire backs and resulted with a goal and a few points. This gave the girls hope and they grew in confidence as the game went on, but it was not to be their night. The gap at half time was just too great, but Midletons second half performance is certainly something we can build on. These are a great bunch of players and are improving with every game. Thanks to their coaches and parents for their encouraging support on the night.
All is not lost as this result means that they have now qualified for the East Cork D League final against either Aghada or Na Piarsaigh, which will be on in a few weeks time. The rest of the girls will be back for this one and hopefully we can go one step further and bring home some silverware to the clubhouse. We have also qualified for the U12 D County Championship so a lot more to look forward to..
