22 June, 2014

Football Fiesta was witnessed in the sun soaked Midleton Rugby Club last evening.
The U10 and U14/16 girls were put through their paces by their respected mentors @ 07:00 as part of their weekly training program.

At the same time 28 girls from the U8 team challenged 23 girls from Fermoy in a series of very entertaining go-games. This was the very first football match for many of our girls and it was a pleasure to watch. The girls were split into two teams and each team played for a total of 45 mins and one could only smile at the enthusiastic look on the girls faces as they took to the field. Once they figured out which direction they were playing in, they took to their task like a herd of gazelles gliding up and down the pitch. Breaks were the order of the day, mainly for the referees who at times found it difficult to keep up with the pace of the football. After each 15 min period we stopped to gain back our breath before starting off again. A great aspect of this game was the support play where every girl ran with the girl who had the ball. This tactic should serve both teams in the future years in their quest for Trophies.

At 07:30 the U12 team kicked Round 3 of the East Cork League when they took on a very formidable Na Piarsaigh team. 30 girls lined out for Midleton on the night. The fact that only 15 could start it was a fair achievement by the mentors to get them all game time over the hour. Midleton started briskly but found it difficult to break down a strong Na Piarsaigh defence. At the break Na Piarsaigh stormed in to a 3 goal lead with Midleton failing to score. Everyone agreed that this score line did not match up to what was being witnessed on the field of play and in the second half this sorted itself out with Midleton outscoring their opposition. But it was not to be Midleton’s day with Na Piarsaigh just edging them out at the end. Over all a very entertaining game and the girls are showing improvement with every game they play. Up next is Glanmire on Monday Night.

The evening of Fun and Football was rounded off in the Midleton Rugby Club house with the presentation of the 2013 U10 & U12 East Cork League Medals. The U14 girls acted as hosts for this event. A large crowd was present for the presentation of the girls medals, who greeted each recipient with a rapturous round of applause.
Special thanks to Midleton Rugby Club for the use of their facilities for this event.
