Magpie All-Stars & National Inclusive Fitness Day 2020

The GAA has invited all clubs to open their doors to the wider community and support the first GAA National Inclusive Fitness Day on September 23rd 2020. National Inclusive Fitness Day aims to promote sport and physical activity to everyone regardless of age, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, nationality, or fitness level.

Inclusion means people having a sense of belonging, of being comfortable in being part of something they value. Diversity means being aware of, accommodating, and celebrating difference, GAA is "Where we all Belong". 

We are rightly proud of the work that has been done, since being founded in 2019, in making the Magpie All-Stars a valued part of our Club and providing, for these club members, a place where they belong. Magpies Abú.

Ladies Football

U10 Notes

On Monday evening our U10 girls travelled to Youghal for our first outing of the season. We have been practicing a lot at training so it was great to put our skills to the test. We had great numbers on the night. It took awhile for both sides to get on the scoreboard but as we settled, we started to gain confidence, All girls were fantastic on the night and supported each other and contested for every ball. Final score was Midleton 2-03 to Youghal 1-02.

Thank you to the Parents for travelling and for your encouragement on the side-line.

Team: Anna Burke, Orlaith Corby, Anna Griffin, Maeve McCormack, Amber Cotter, Eva Saunderson, Roisin O Connor, Rhona Fenton, Georgia Obersby, Nessa Cronin, Clodagh Power, Sara Cahill, Eva Pyne, Keely Fitzsimmons, Camden Hudson, Bronwyn Hudson, Lily Masterson, Aoife O Shaughnessy, Nora O Leary Hayes, Ava McSweeney.

Our next outing is a match away to Aghada. Best of luck in this game.

 

U12 Notes

It has been a busy few week for our young ladies as they have been fulfilling their league fixtures. We were away to Carrigtwohill in the 4th round of the East Cork League on Friday the18th September @ 6.30. It was a lovely fine evening with no breeze. Midleton scored their first point within 2 minutes and didn’t look back from there. Credit is due to a very strong defence from Carrig who kept us on our toes. Final score Midleton 4-12 to Carrigtohill 1-3. Fantastic work from all the panel. Well done. 

We met Na Piarsaigh at home in Clonmult Memorial Park early Sunday morning last the 13th of September. It was a damp start to the day and both teams struggled keeping possession as the ball was slippy. Midleton opened their account eventually after 5 minutes. Na Piarsaigh’s team mainly comprised of U11 players and for the most part were outmatched by Midleton. We took the opportunity to give our U11s a good bit of game time and to gain some experience. The final result was 5-9 Midleton to 2-0 Na Piarsaigh. Well done on a job well done. 

 

U14 Notes

On Wednesday evening our U14 Ladies finished off their league campaign with a close win over Erin’s Own. On a very warm evening in Ballinacurra once again we had great numbers turn out. A very tough game was played by both sides. There was only a point in the game at half time. Midleton converted some great scores and edged out winners on the night. Over the next few weeks we are hoping to organise some challenge games to keep the girls playing.

Training schedule for the coming week:

Monday in Ballinacurra: U8/12/14 will train from 6.45-7.45pm

The U10 girls will take the night off as they have had two matches this week.

The U16 girls will take on Watergrasshill in Glenville on Monday evening at 6.30pm.

Thursday in Midleton GAA Club U16/Minor and Junior 7-8pm

Camogie

U12 Notes

A superb team performance by our Midleton U-12 Camogie Team on Thursday evening against Sarsfield on home soil. Our forwards got off to a flying start and within minutes we were a goal and a point ahead. We continued to dominate up front adding a further 4 goals and a point before half time. We made a few changes at the water breaks and half time and this added an extra dimension to our game. Sarsfield came into the game in the 2nd half and put over some great points early on. Our backline remained consistently solid throughout with our goalkeeper pulling off some magnificent saves. Once again we dominated around the midfield and centre back area. The girls worked hard for every ball and finished off the game with a further three points from play in the 2nd half. It was a huge team performance with the girls showing great fight and spirit from start to finish on a sunny September evening. Huge congrats to all involved!

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.

U10 Notes

We travelled to Glenville on Tuesday evening, 15th September to play 3 games against Watergrasshill. We brought our Young Magpies and they got ‘stuck-in’ from start to finish. There were some lovely passages of play and also some great defending. It was an enjoyable evening for everyone. The Players are showing great signs of improvement and these games will only help them more. Thanks to Watergrasshill for hosting us and thanks again to all the players, coaches and parents for their commitment

Juvenile

Fé13 Notes

Midleton was the venue for our semi-final of the Bill O’Keeffe cup. On a beautiful sunny evening we took on Sars in a very entertaining game. There were some great individual performances, but the most satisfactory thing was that we played as a team. We now play in the finals on Saturday week, were we will play the winners of Ballincollig or Inniscarra. Well done on a good performance. Magpies ABÚ

Midleton 5-09 Aghada 1-08 Division 2 Football Playoff

The semi-final of this year’s Fé12 Division 2 football league saw us welcome Aghada to Clonmult Memorial Park last Wednesday evening. The early throw in of 5.45pm didn’t seem to bother the lads too much as they raced into an early lead with a very clever goal from full forward Ewan Murphy and further points from Ciaran Kelly and Darragh Mullins. A well converted penalty by the influential Max Murphy left the lads in a strong position at the first water break. The second quarter belonged to Scott Dunlea who score an impressive 1-1 in this period to leave the half time score Midleton 3-03 to Aghada 0-02. Aghada dominating large periods of the third quarter but some fine play by Jack Walsh and Cuan Twomey in defence and important scores from Cian Lawton and Darragh Mullins in attack kept Midleton in front. Further goals in the final quarter by the impressive Ewan Murphy and James O’Meara and points by Darrah Mullins gave Midleton the victory and sent them through to the final where they will play Kiltha Óg on Sunday 27th at 11.30am. 

The panel for this match was: Bradley O’Brien, Liam Walsh, Peader Egan, Cuan Tuomey, Shane O’Mahony, Senan Carroll, Jack Walsh, Max Murphy, Darragh Mullins, Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton, James O’Meara, Ciaran Kelly, Ewan Murphy, Dara Birdthistle, Riain McCormack, Jason Morley, Jack Cahill, Josh Quill, Patrick O’Dowd.

Fé12 v Aghada

The Fé12 lads were all delighted to see their teammate Kacper on the side line for the Aghada match supporting the lads on the night. A special thanks to Aghada for an extremely thoughtful gesture after the match when they presented Kacper and his family with a cheque in connection with the ongoing fundraising.

Fé11 Notes

Challenge Match V Kiltha Óg

On Friday evening last, we made the short trip to near neighbours Castlemartyr, where Kiltha Og hosted us, in what proved to be a very entertaining game of hurling. It was Midleton’s first full 15-aside game, having graduated from the smaller go-games format this year. A late Indian summer made for ideal playing conditions and drew a sizable crowd of onlookers to the banks of the pitch, which certainly added to the spectacle.

Objectives for the game, first and foremost was to get out there and enjoy the sport they love. Having only recently returned to training after the long layoff, it was important that they get out on the grass and express themselves. The game was also played with a view to getting the squad familiar with positional awareness on the larger playing surface. In fairness to the lads they stuck to their positions, with some gentle persuasion from the side-lines!

With a panel of 21 to choose from it was difficult to pick the starting 15, but we started well and settled into a cracking game with all 21 players getting game time. Some lovely passages of play from the midfield pairing allowed the forwards to pick up great scores. Our back line was resolute, providing a tough test for the Kiltha forwards. An even enough game in the end, but we were delighted to see that every ball was contested. Not an inch was given by any player from the first to final whistle, which was evident to see at the end of the game when the helmets came off.

Massive thanks to Jimmy Smiddy (Kiltha Óg) who refed the game and provided coaching to both sets of players throughout. Thanks as well to the Kiltha Óg Covid Supervisors who ensured hand hygiene was maintained upon entry to and exit from the field. Magpies Abú

Challenge Match V Glen Rovers

On a gloriously sunny Friday evening we travelled to the famed Glen Rovers for a hurling challenge game in our first outing as Under 12's and also our first game at 15 a side. The vast majority of the lads had never played 15 a side game before so understandably nerves were on show early on and we were slow to settle, allowing Glen Rovers push in to an early lead. To the boy’s credit they didn't panic and despite falling behind to some well taken scores they kept the work rate up and soon settled. Our boys who have already had a year at this level showed some great leadership by guiding and encouraging their team mates in to the game and at the tail end of the first half there were signs of us growing in to the game as a team. A bit of a pep talk and reshuffling of positions at half time saw a different Magpies emerge in the second half with some outstanding performances and teamwork from all nineteen lads. The second half was a much tighter affair with Midleton just getting the better of it over the second 25 minutes. Has to be said there are a lot of positives and learnings taken from the game as well as some areas to improve on, but this will come as we move on and get some more games under our belts. Well done to all involved and also to parents for making the trip to the city on a Friday evening, much appreciated. 

The panel on the day was:

Eoghan Donovan, Aaron Murphy, Braden Dunlea, Ethan Foley, David Seale, Fionn Byrne, Patrick O Brien, Rory Nolan, Daniel Moloney, Finn Cahill, Nojus Jurciukonis, Alex Molumby, Riain McCormack, Ciaran Kelly, Josh Quill, Hugh Barry, Adam Groarke, John O Sullivan, Kevin Lester.

Fé8 Notes

Our Lads were on the road again for a second week to Riverstown to play Sarsfields GAA. We brought 33 Young Magpies for this Hurling Challenge Games and the lads didn't disappoint us.

Fé7 Notes

The lads continue to train every Saturday morning on the main pitch. They are showing massive improvement every week and seem to be enjoying themselves with the games the coaches are giving them. We had over 30 young magpies playing hurling in the field on Saturday last and a large number of coaches also. Don’t forget that the best training happens at home so keep on practicing those skills! As always new members are welcome to come along anytime.
