We played our first football league game last Saturday week at home v St Nick’s.  
Short ten players as there was Communion and we had some injuries too. We played two games of nine a side against a very sporting St Nick’s. The two games were very tight and at the final whistle we drew both games. All in all it was great to get the football up and going with the lads putting in a great effort from start to finish playing some mighty football – well done lads!

U12 Premier 1 Gaelic Football:  We traveled to Blackpool in the heart of Cork city last Friday night to play St Nicks in the Premier 1 Rebel Og football league. This was our sixth game out of a series of nine. This team has been consistently performing well above what we have been expecting all year long and the hope from the team’s  management was that this could be the night to kick start our season. We lined out with a very strong team. From the throw in Midleton took the initiative. Brilliantly taken long range points from Darragh McCarthy laid the foundation for the rest of the game. At the end of a well worked movement, just before half time, Cian Murray pounced on an opportunity to score a cracking goal. David Connolly, Evan McCarthy, Rory Hartnett  had super first half performances.  The second half was to be this team’s best performance of Gaelic Football all year. It consisted of superb defence all the way from the Brion Saunderson out to Neil Fitzgerald, midfield was dominant, capped with three sublime points from Shay Bohan and the forward line helped amass a second half total of 1-07, the highlight being Phelim McGann’s goal. For this team the season has just begun…   
Midleton Panel: Brion Saunderson, Ronan Gies, Liam McGrath, Evan McCarthy, David Connolly, Ciarmhac Smyth, , Shay Bohan, Cian Murray, Darragh McCarthy, Neil Fitzgerald, Ben O’Neill, Alex Quirke, Rory Hartnett, Phelim McGann,  , Darragh Mooney.
U12 Premier 2 Gaelic Football:  The P2 football game against Mayfield was played on Saturday 9th of May at Midleton Vocational grounds. Our numbers were very tight because of a number of other events occurring on the same day.  All our players worked hard in the first half and we were rewarded by a number of fine scores. At half time we went in four points off the lead. Mayfield started to pull away in the second half and they eventually won on a score line of  Mayfield 4-04 Midleton 3-00. We had put up a spirted performance but we just fell short on the day.
