Juvenile

Fé6

Saturday last was the final outdoor training session for the 2018-2019 Fé6 group and they finished it in style with 35 enthusiastic magpies turning up for the final football session of the year. The boys have been fantastic to train all year and are showing great improvement in both hurling and football.. We would encourage all parents to continue to practice with the boys at home as this really helps with the skills and overall confidence. Thanks to the big team of Fé6 coaches who give up their free time to help out each week in all types of weather! Thanks also to those who helped out with complimentary tea and coffee in the club house every Saturday morning. There was always a very welcoming atmosphere around the club each weekend. The group will take a small break for 2 weeks and will return hurling training indoors on Saturday November 2nd between 11am-12noon in Midleton

Community Centre.

Fé7

On Saturday morning in Midleton 36 Young Magpies played 3 Hurling matches against our Neighbours Carrigtwohill on the main pitch. The weather conditions were perfect for this Local Derby and the lads played 3 matches each. Our players showed great heart in each of the games and got some fine scores throughout. Next Saturday morning will be our last Training Session outdoors before we go indoors in the Midleton Community Centre on November 2nd from 10am-11am.

Fé10

On Saturday morning our Under 10 hurlers were in Caherlag to take on near neighbours Erins Own. We travelled with a strong panel of 33 players and fielded three teams with each player getting plenty game time. During the past few weeks we have been working hard in training on our positional sense in games as well as the hooking and blocking technique and it was very encouraging to see some great examples of these skills being used on Saturday by the boys in Black and White. The players have to be commended on the effort put in on the day, with plenty of skill to back it up. There was very little between the teams with only a puck of a ball deciding most games. Well done to our lads on what was another very encouraging display. Thanks to Daniel Clifford and his fellow Erin’s Own coaches for the welcome and for hosting us on the day.

Our panel was : Eoghan Donovan, Patrick O'Brien, Finn Cahill, Charlie McCarthy, Patrick Spellman, Alfie Hennessy, Sean McLoughlin,  Braden Dunlea, Alex Molumby, Fionn Byrne, Manus Stewart, Robin O Brien, John O'Sullivan, Daniel Moloney, Jack O'Sullivan Crotty, Cathal O'Neill, Aaron Murphy, Finn Murray, Hugh Barry, Cathal Kavanagh, Ethan Foley, Daire Crowley, Dan O'Connell, Alan Fitzgerald, Dylan McInerney, Aidan O'Regan, Kevin Lester, Adam Groarke, Billy Murphy, Donncha Butler, Max Wisniewska, Ian Lambe, Ciaran O'Brien.

Fé11

The final Fé11 outing in the Rebel Óg series of hurling matches for this group of players saw an away trip to Douglas last weekend to take on both Douglas and Sarsfields. With 33 magpies split evenly across two teams, we played Douglas and Sarsfields in what turned out to be very competitive matches. As usual the Midleton lads more than held their own with some fantastic skills and scores as well as heroic defending in both matches. Thanks to the parents who turned up to support the lads in Douglas. This group of Fé11 players will now move into the Fé12 age group next year where there will be two teams in both hurling and football. The lads have shown great commitment and dedication from the first day they started in the community centre in 2013 and are looking forward to the step up next year. We would encourage the lads to practice the skills between training at whatever chance they get. We will continue to train on Wednesday’s between 6pm-7pm in Midleton College hockey pitch. Magpies abú.

Fé12

Congratulations to our Fé12’s who defeated Inniscarra today in the Premier 1 County Final.

Fé14

On Saturday afternoon in what was perfect hurling conditions the magpies had a home semifinal game against a much fancied Fermoy side. Our lads started well with points from Cian Lambe and Zach Smith but Fermoy matched that, in what was going to be a winner takes all game. Samuel Morrissey got a great score from the wing and this was followed up by a sublime goal by the quick thinking Larry Ward. This left the halftime score of 1-3 to 3 points. Fermoy came out of the blocks very fast in the second half and scored 1-1 without reply. However our backs Darragh Aherne Adam Collins Darragh Higgins Alex Howard and captain  Sean Cronin stemmed the supply of ball into the inside forward line and the tide turned for our lads. Points from Oscar Brennan Thomas O Connor and three well taken frees from the ever reliable Zach Smith saw our lads put Fermoy under pressure. Daniel Garde was excellent in goals for Midleton and Tadhg Bohane plus Eoin Higgins now started to dominate midfield. Zach struck for two more excellent points from play. Fermoy replied with a goal of their own but this was nullified when Conor Williams caught a dropping ball drove it to the back of the Fermoy net. Midleton were firmly in the driving seat when up stepped Tiernan o Connell with a great score helped by a great pass from the hard working Cormac Ryan. This was a huge team effort and a great result with another final to look forward to for this wonderful bunch of players. Many thanks to all parents and supporters for their support on the day. Final score Midleton 2-12 Fermoy 2-6. Panel as follows Daniel Garde, Darragh Aherne, Adam Collins, Alex Howard, Tadgh Bohane, Sean Cronin, Eoin Higgins, Cian Lambe, Cormac MacAongasa, Evan Mcgrath, Oscar Brennan, Larry Ward, Zach Smith, Samuel Morrissey, Conor Williams, Thomas O Connor, Cormac Ryan, Tiernan O Connell.

Saturday October 5th 2019 is a date that will love forever in the minds with those associated with the current fe 14 for that was the date that this special group of young men went out to represent their club and families in a most remarkable manner and in doing so win the Sean Keohane cup and become premier one u14 hurling county champions defeating ba Piarsaigh in the process.The run into the match we were dealt when it became known Rory Lester would not be available due to a recent injury.Rory has increble time and effort put into this team and it seemed the lads decided they were not leaving it behind them.This was not going to be a easy task,na larsaogh are a fine hurling team,the day itself was wet from mid morning and for the entire match 

Like the semi final we gathered in the club and travelled to the match by bus.The mood was upbeat and light hearted,we arrived on plenty of time which allowed the lads to walk  around around and soak in the atmosphere.Everyone calm.Time moved on Throw in fast approaching.Everyone returned to the dressing room team announced, a few specific details sorted and we took to the field led by our captain Alex Moloney.Soon after 1:30 the call is thrown in ,na Piarsaigh are first to score but we respond immediately with a long range free from dara Scanlon,na Piarsaigh come again with another point which is quickly cancelled out frim daragh fitz with another free.Seven minutes in Eoin Higgins makes a brilliant run and the blast the call into the mate making it1-2 to 0-2.Midleyom were now flying in all positions in the field,all back were hurling out if their skin and be Piarsaigh had very little answer for it.Two further points from fitz and Alex moloney were followed from a point by me Piarsaigh.The midleton midfield partnership of cian lambe and niall lang were in control up front Evan mchatyh Eoin Higgins and Eoin Frazer,were pulling their opposite number all over the field James Mcswenney was doing powerful work and carrying the ball and putting their half back under enormous.The work rate from daragh ahern dara Scanlon and Alex moloney were off the charts blocking hooking and clearing ball after ball,Tagdh o leary Hayes was in control at 6,Tagdh bohan was having the game of his life and carthaigh Cronin was playing some wonderful intelligent hurling.on the odd occasion that he Piarsaigh got through they found Zak Smith in top form for the magpies,no surprise there.As the half drew closer two more points from lang and fitz saw midleton lead at half time 1-7 to 0-3.what happened next was remarkable,it was the lads themselves spoke up and demanded this not to be let go.Pf course we realized Piarsaigh were going to come out all guns blazing and that they did scoring 1-2 without reply to bring it to a two point game.The noise level rose about 20 notches, what was going to happen next?Midleton didn't panic,why should they?They were the better team and so it proved to be with fitz pouncing for a goal to out 5 between the teams,pairsigh were rocked, their line has no answer.dara Scanlon drove the. All out over the bar from a 65.Midleton back in full control.50 mins on the clock and alex howard was introduced for Eoin Fraser  who ran himself to a stand.

Ladies Football

A busy week for our Ladies. First out on Monday night were our U14 girls who faced Glanmire in the East Cork Championship Final. We always have tough battles with these girls and that night was no exception. A fantastic display of football saw us win out on a scoreline of Midleton 3-12 Glanmire 2-06. Well done to all the girls. It was unfortunate that the game was fixed for the same night as the Minor Hurlers County final and we really appreciate that Kelly and Jill played our match and raced soon after the game to support their brothers in Pairc Uí Rinn.

Next up on Saturday our Junior Ladies faced the long road to Kilmichael to take on Dohenys in the Cork County Junior B County Final. The mood on the bus journey down was one of excitement with a few nerves. Conditions on the day were a mixture of sunshine and torrential rain with the pitch extremely soft. Bouncing of the ball was not really an option however Midleton settled well. Halftime score saw us leading by 3 points. Dohenys came out in the second half knowing they had to up their performance and that they did. They took their scores well but Midleton kept fighting back. Unfortunately time ran out and we lost out by 1 point. Final score was Midleton 0-08 Dohenys 0-09. Well done to all the girls and the Management team. It’s a great achievement to get to a County Final and with this panel of players we will definitely be back. We retuned back to Midleton and celebrated our East Cork Championship win from last Sunday.

Sunday morning our U16 girls travelled to Mayfield for the semi final of the East Cork Championship. They had a very tough battle but unfortunately this is the end of the road for the girls for this year.

Finally on Sunday our U12s played Bride Rovers in the East Cork Championship Final. It was a mixed afternoon weather wise with a heavy shower in the opening minutes giving way to sunshine. Bride rovers started well and scored first. They were formidable opponents and we needed to mark tight. Once we equalised we never trailed. Thanks to some great saves by Mia Walsh we kept them at bay and we finished well with a score line of 3-13 2-05. Scorers were Faye Dunlea, Shiela O’ Leary Hayes, Emma Keeshan, Robyn Keating, Ciara Murphy, Lily Kelly and Alyx Cahill. Well done to all the girls who played and to the entire panel who have contributed so much to the team over the season to get us to where we are today. Magpies Abú.

Camogie

Midleton Camogie hosted the under 9 East Cork Camogie Fun Blitz on Sunday 6th Oct in Parc Cuimneacain Cluain Molt in beautiful conditions. There was huge excitement for our under 9 girls home games. Our budding stars showed up in great numbers and we played against our neighbours from Youghal, Fr. O Neills, Killeagh and St. Catherines . Every girl played brilliantly and the future is certainly bright for Cork Camogie from what was shown today!! And what great displays there was. The girls ran about with great spirit and got some great skill and scores while being cheered on by a big group of spectators. The girls really enjoyed the full experience of wearing their Midleton colours today. We were delighted today with the support of the families who brought their girls today and created such a great atmosphere with their support. And last but not least a big thanks to the players ,coaches, our young referees Vivienne and Caoimhe. We can’t wait for our next match – that’s where we see all the hours of practice at training paying off. Here’s to many more fun days like today! Up the magpies.

Thanks to every one of the girls for their commitment and effort during the year, they really are a fantastic bunch! Thanks also to the parents for their continued support. We look forward to seeing everyone back in February.
