Fe 12
On Saturday morning last we returned to the playing field at long last with  a hurling challenge match V Aghada in Rostellan.   We fielded two teams of 12 a side and in wet and windy conditions, it was a credit to both Aghada and Midleton serving up two excellent games of hurling losing one by a narrow margin and coming out on top in the other match.
It was great to see the lads back on grass and getting our season up and running. Our next outing will be football League V St Michaels. We stick with the big ball for the next few weeks of league action. Thanks to the parents for their support and for travelling on what was an inclement Saturday morning. Thanks to Aghada for hosting and providing refs. 

Fe 16
We made the journey on Sunday last to West Tipperary to face Knockavilla Kickhams in a challenge. This was our first hurling outing of the year and was a very worthwhile exercise. First half was tit for tat early on but a goal for the hosts and a few wides from us in the latter stages left us trailing 1-8 to 0-4 at the break. A slow start to the second half didn't help our cause but the lads showed good character in the last fifteen minutes. Fair play to all our guys for turning up and to the host club for providing sandwiches, tea and soft drinks.
Final score was Knockavilla 1-17 v Midleton 1-10. We move on to our first league football match on St Patrick's Day against Kiltha Og in Midleton at 1pm.
Team: Brion Saunderson, Ciarmhac Smyth, Charlie Walsh, Evan McCarthy, Gavin Reddy (c), Jack Fitzgerald, Patrick Kane, Will O'Sullivan, Paul Connaughton(0-2, 1f), Dan Cagney, Darragh McCarthy (0-1), Darragh Crowley (1-6, all frees), Conor Fitzgerald(0-1), Ryan Cahill & James Condon. Subs Used: Nicky Hayes, Luke Deane, Aaron Coughlan, Ben Cummins. Also in attendance were Alex Quirke and Leo Hennessy (both currently injured).
