Junior C Hurling Notes

Junior C Hurling Championship Midleton 2:07 Fr O’Neill’s 0:22

Last Tuesday week we played Fr O’Neills in our second and final group game. Having lost our first group game the previous week, this fixture was a must win. We started brightly and had a cracking goal in the opening minutes from the evergreen Sean Corcoran. We continued to play well and stay in contention throughout the first half. On the changeover Fr O’Neills started to impose their game on us and were able to come by scores with a greater efficiency. Again the spirit of this Midleton team could not be questioned as was evidenced by the efforts of all the players who got on the field. Unfortunately we could only use five substitutes on the night, having such a large squad is a great sign that as a club we are retaining players. This is something we will continue to work on so as to ensure all playing members are getting game time. Final score Midleton 2:07 Fr O’Neills 0:22

A huge thanks to Eoin Ferriter, Declan McInerney and Liam Wade and to all the players involved this year for their great effort during the two games. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be this year. However we will strive to improve next year and are grateful to have played championship hurling in 2020, something that seemed unlikely last April. 

Team: Keith Ryan, Ryan Cahill, Charlie Walsh, Patrick Kane, Brendan Ferriter, Robbie Barry (Captain), James O’Mahony, Liam Kelly, Gavin Reddy, Chris Power, Jack Fitzgerald, Colin Dowling, Andrew Rea, Sean Corcoran and Paul Ahern. Substitutes: Luke Deane, Aaron Coughlan, Conor Fitzgerald, David O’Brien, Coleman Quinn, Joe Coppinger, Daniel Wathen, Eoin Ferriter, Rory Donegan, Eoghan Collins and Jerome Curtin.

Fé16 Notes

Fé16 Premier 1 County Final,  Midleton 1:15  Bride Rovers 0:15

Who are we? Midleton. What are we? Winners.

This win was founded on hard work, determination, a great attitude and a sense of self-belief. Champions all. What a way some of these players are signing off on their last game at Juvenile Level with a second victory over Bride Rovers in the final yesterday in Lisgoold.

The game was a tight affair throughout, Midleton just edging it a halftime 0-09 to 0-08 by the narrowest margin after playing against a stiff breeze. Both teams are talented and knew each other in great detail, no player got time on the ball, and every score was hard earned. The second half saw Bride Rovers draw level at 10 points apiece, but an opportunist goal pushed Midleton ahead and gave us some breathing room. So, it ended with Midleton winning by a goal, the final score 1-15 to 0-15. Five wins from five games, a fantastic campaign, champions of a competition that contains players of an exceedingly high standard in Cork. A lot of these players move onto minor next year with a belief and confidence that augurs well for the club. Those guys that are underage again next year have seen much success at their own age group and will be ready for the challenge of two-in-a-row, but before all that the important task of winning the C3 competition over the next few weeks.

Great panel, great attendance, great training, great to listen. Thanks to the parents, and all those club supporters that wished us well. Well done players, success down to every man. Winners all.

Midleton Scorers: M Finn 0-11 (0-06f); D Cremin 0-03 (0-02s/l); D Fitzgerald 1-0, E Higgins 0-01.

Squad: Z Smith, D Scanlon, M Roe, C Beausang, T O’Leary Hayes, B O’Connell, A Moloney, T Roche, C Lambe, S O’Connor, M Finn, D Cremin, D Fitzgerald, K Monak, D Monak, D Greene, A Howard, TJ Murphy, R Lestor, F Dalton, D Coffey, E Higgins, E McGrath, B Kenneally, L Ronayne, T Bohan, D Garde, R de Barra (inj), N Lang (inj).

Fé14 Notes

Fé14 P1 Hurling Semi Final Midleton 2:10  Glen Rovers 3:10

Last Sunday we headed to the Glen field to take on the locals in an eagerly awaited P1 Semi final.  We had reached this stage by defeating the Barrs and Douglas with a narrow loss to Sars in between.

We began well, the lads were well up for the challenge and showed their class early on, Peter Barrett had a goal and a point on the board within minutes quickly followed by two well taken points from Daniel Garde.  Our full forward line were causing panic in the Glen defence with Fionn Kelly also threatening every time he gained possession.   James McSweeney then added another point with a free before the Glen responded with a pointed free.  James struck over another free, just before the water break the Glen had a point from play.  The second quarter was very keenly contested our defence was definitely being put under pressure but Josh Carey,  Callum and Matthew McSweeney were standing firm in the face of a determined Glen attack.  They were on target with a free, at the other end a bullet like shot from Fionn struck the crossbar, after an intense exchange Thomas Dunlea managed to evade two tackles and strike a fine point.  Carthaigh Cronin then had a fantastic blockdown on a goal bound shot, Josh Hogan in goal dealt calmly with a few dodgy moments. Another free gave the Glen a point.  Daniel then rounded his marker and his effort screamed over the bar to leave the halftime score Midleton 1-07 Glen Rovers 0-04. Having spurned a number of chances it was worrying in reality we should have been further ahead.

The Glen began the second half in determined fashion, another free conceded another point for the Northsiders, they then added a point from play followed by a goal after a goalmouth scramble.  It was definitely game on,  James got us back on track with a point from distance from play,  Fionn then struck a point this was soon followed by an excellent goal from Darragh Egan after he did all the work himself,  James added a free while the Glen responded with a 65. It was set for a nail biting last quarter we conceded two frees and were punished for both with points, our lead was now down to 3points, Yohannis Mehigen cleared a number of attacks Carthaigh and Eoghan Fraser were putting in a huge shift.  Another goalmouth scramble resulted in a goal being awarded to the Glen to draw them level for the first time, with seconds left we conceded another goal and we just couldn’t respond in time to leave the lads heartbroken as the final whistle sounded. This was our second successive semi final defeat but this one really hurt.  The lads had put in a huge effort in what has been a difficult year for everyone.  Lessons hopefully learned and we move on to the next challenge. Heartfelt thanks to the players for their efforts and to the parents who provided great support as always.

Panel; Josh Hogan,  Conor Williams, Josh Carey,  Yohannis Mehigen,  Matthew McSweeney,  Carthaigh Cronin,  Callum McSweeney,  Eoghan Fraser,  James McSweeney (0-4), Conor Morley,   Darragh Egan (1-0),  Thomas Dunlea (0-1), Fionn Kelly (0-1),  Daniel Garde (0-3),  Peter Barrett (1-01)  Adam O Connor,  Luca Brodkorb,  Sean McSharry,  John Paul McManus,   Odhran Dennigen , Nicky Coughlan,  Paddy Walsh (injured).

Division 3B Hurling League Midleton 3-03 Lisgoold 1-03

The final game in this year’s Division 3B hurling league was the short trip to Lisgoold last Saturday evening. It is great to see such big numbers for each game with 22 players togging out this week, with some of the lads after competing in the Davy Hogan Street leagues that morning. It was one of those dedicated players that got us off to the dream start, when Liam Walsh showed great stickwork to strike the ball to the back of the Lisgoold net after a well worked team move. The lads played some great hurling in the first half and were it not for some heroic goalkeeping from the oppositions number 1, they would have been farther ahead. With Patrick Collins, Fionn Bohan and Adam Spillane holding firm in the full back line ahead of a the ever-reliable Michael Allegrini in goal, Lisgoold were unable to get the scores they required. The half time score was 1-00 to 0-01. Despite a good number of changes at half time, the lads took up where they left off with some fantastic hurling, with a fine point from Luke Bamber and then an unstoppable bullet of a goal form Deniss Brusevics. At this stage the lads were working tirelessly all over the pitch, with Jamie O’Donovan and Jack Connolly having an impact on the wings. Another goal from the speedy Riain McCormack and a great point from a free from Josh Quill left us in a good position with time almost up. The scoring was completed when Michael Barrett struck over a fantastic point from out on the wing to leave the final score Lisgoold 1-03 Midleton 3—03. This was a great team performance from all 22 magpies and a well-deserved victory for the lads who continue to improve each week. The panel for this game was: Michael Allegrini, Patrick Collins, Fionn Bohan, Adam Spillane, Rian Casey, Cuan Twomey, James Lambe, Josh Quill, Luke Bamber, James O’Meara, Liam Walsh, Jack Connolly, Rian McCormack, Ruairi O’Riordan, Dara Cahill, Christian Ramsell, Rossa O’Connor, Deniss Brusevics, Cian Hogan, Jamie O’Donovan, James Carey, Michael Barrett.

Fé9 Notes

On Saturday morning we made the short trip to Kiely Park to take on Sars. It was our first match following our return to training and we had 36 young and enthusiastic Magpies togged out in what was a great morning for hurling. We played three 12 a side games against a strong Sars team and the skills and effort on display was great to watch.  Since we returned to training a number of weeks back we have been training twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays where our lads have been putting in a huge effort and working extremely hard on their skills. We would like to thank Sars for hosting us and we look forward to seeing them again for the return fixture in a few weeks.

Fé9 Teams V Sars

Finally from everyone involved in the under 9s group we would like to congratulate the U16 management and players on their fantastic county final win on Saturday. Magpies Abú.  

Fé8 Notes

Our lads travelled to Youghal on Saturday Morning to play 4 Challenge games against Youghal. We brought 33 Young Magpies to a sunny Youghal and they got ‘stuck-in’ from start to finish. There was some lovely points and goals scored by our lads and also some great defending. The lads are showing great signs of improvement and these games will only help them more. Thanks again to all the parents for their commitment.

Fé8 Teams in Youghal

Next week we will Travel to Riverstown to play Sarsfields GAA at 9:15am.

We encourage the lads also to keep practicing the Hurling at home in their spare time.

Fé6 Notes

A sunny Riverstown greeted our Fé6 hurlers as they finally made their debuts for the Magpies. All our players got to play four games and everyone of them played very well, showed plenty of grit and worked very hard. However, the most important thing is they enjoyed the experience and left with great memories.

Ladies Football

U16 Notes

East Cork League Midleton 4:12 St. Colemans 3:06

Midleton ladies u16 continue on their unbeaten run in the East Cork League against a very strong St Colemans team played in Ballinacurra last Wednesday evening 09th sept. At the first water break St Colemans were well in control with our girls finding it difficult to get on the ball and no real rhythm in our general play. St Colemans leading 1:3 to 2 points. Straight after the resumption of play we got back a goal that brought us right into the game and the girls started to play great football again. The backs tightened up and didn't allow St Colemans as much time on the ball and the forwards began to find their range and by half-time, we had a commanding lead of 3-7 to 2-4 that we never relinquished. 

The full time scoreline did not do justice to the St Colemans efforts and was a much closer game than the final score of 4-12 to 3-6 suggests. Overall a great game with both teams giving it their all but we were that little bit stronger on the night. We had 21 girls togged out and all played. Well done girls. Our final game is Monday week away to WGH.

Team: Kate Saunderson, Sophie McCarthy, Emma O'Sullivan, Jade Fitzgerald, Isabelle Nestor, Aisling McCarthy, Saoirse Ní Theangana, Gráinne Finn, Aoife Fitzgerald, Selena O'Riordan (0-2), Rachel Ryan (0-2), Rachel Quirke (3-6), Mia Tarrant (1-2), Aoife Mulcahy, Elle McManus, Lily Kelly, Seana O'Brien, Elsa Ryan, Amy Murray, Kelly Quirke, Aoibhe Corby

U14 Notes

Our U14 girls travelled to a blustery Whitechurch to take on Rockbán on Saturday evening. It was a tough encounter for us. Rockbán were a formidable side but our Ladies to their credit never stopped and fought for every high and low ball that came their way. Unfortunately, the result did not go our way but one thing for sure there is a great Team Spirit with the team. Well done Ladies.

Camogie

We had two very busy Saturdays both this weekend and last as our U10,11,12 and 14 players picked up their hurleys and took to the pitch in what proved a great weekend of Camogie. It is safe to say that all our girls were excited to play the game they all love and especially so after our extended break during lockdown, and they didn’t disappoint. Great reports came in from all age groups involved and lots of proud coaches leading their teams onto the playing fields!

U14 Notes

Next up our U14 girls played their third match of the championship and just edged out a very strong Erins Own in a thrilling game played also last Saturday evening in Midleton. Both teams swapped the lead throughout the match with Midleton scoring a last minute goal to win the match by just a point. Commiserations to Erins Own and now our girls now progress to the Plate championship. Well done to all involved a great win for our girls!

U12 Notes

Go Games League v Killeagh

A great team performance by our Midleton U-12 Camogie Team as we played away to Killeagh in the Go Games League. Our defence was rock solid throughout.  We were against a strong breeze in the 1st half but our forwards hit the back of the net several times by half time whistle.  The water breaks and half time allowed us the opportunity to bring on fresh legs and these players made a great impact to the game.  Every ball was hotly contested by both teams and the girls continued to work hard all around the pitch and in particular the midfield area.   We secured another goal early into the 2nd half and it was followed up by a well taken free going straight over the posts.   We completed the scoring with another goal mid-way through the second half which allowed us to finish out with an incredible win at Full time. Big Thank you to Killeagh for hosting us, best of luck in upcoming matches.

U12 Panel : Sadhbh Cronin, Emma Fitzgerald, Thea Howard, Abby Hennessy, Sophie McCarthy, Sarah McConville, Julie Murphy, Lucy Murphy, Ciara Ryan Dardis, Emma Ivers, Niamh Murphy, Emma Keeshan, Recbecca Cronin, Niamh McNamara, Cait O'Leary Hayes, Ciara McGrath, Cara Pyne, Faye Dunlea, Fay Lordan Bailey, Hannah O'Brien, Mia Walsh, Nicole Quike Lee, Robyn Keating, Rebecca Ryan, Roisin McManus.

We played Killeagh at their grounds yesterday Saturday 12th September in beautiful conditions.

There was huge excitement for our U10’s girls for their first game of the season. We played with great spirit and got great experience of rising and striking the sliotar, blocking and competing again. We really enjoyed the full experience of wearing the Midleton colours today. There was some lovely passages of play and it was great to see all the girls support each other in all sections of the pitch. A big well done to all the players, parents and thanks to the coaches, the referee and our good neighbours Killeagh Camogie Club for hosting us for the game. 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 camogie days like this !!!!
