Juvenile

Fé 13 Premier 1 Football League

The Glen field was the venue for our latest football outing on Saturday afternoon taking on St Nicks. With no wind to contend with both teams began to play some open and entertaining passages of football, Nicks struck first with a point from play quickly followed by a goal from their big full forward who would prove to be a thorn in our side all day. Despite some very good periods of possession we found it difficult to register a score, a Paddy Walsh shot came back off the crossbar and into the grateful hands off a Nicks defender who cleared, another goal opportunity from James Mc Sweeney was saved by the goalkeeper. Nicks responded to the challenge with another point from play then they were awarded a dubious penalty which was put away giving our keeper Conor Morley no chance, again we laid siege to their half and were eventually rewarded with a fine point from play from the boot of Sean McSharry, the halftime score was Nicks 2-02 Midleton 0-1. A Carthaig Cronin point after some excellent passing saw us begin the second half well. Our wastefulness in the scoring zone continued unfortunately, despite dominating possession, during this time we hit 5 wides. Nicks on the other hand were maximising their chances scoring 3 goals and 2 points which saw us facing a hammering, but credit to our lads they kept battling , and were rewarded wh’n Paddy Walsh struck for a well taken goal, Paddy had a fine game throughout. Adam O Connor, Marcas Lambe and Darragh Egan were defending manfully and getting forward to help our forwards, Eoghan Frasier was putting in a huge shift in midfield, Odhran Dennigen and Thomas Dunlea were causing huge problems for the Nicks defence, Conor Morley was brave and sharp saving twice from Nicks attacks. After another period of pressure a fantastic team move saw Callum O Brien, James and Sean all combine to put Odhran Dennigen in possession, he dodged a tackle and an attempted beheading to score a cracking goal . Our legs were beginning to buckle with all this effort and Nicks took advantage pinching another goal and a point late on, Thomas struck another fine point, we had another chance to narrow the gap when we were awarded a late free but 10 defenders lined the goal and Paddy’s shot was blocked and cleared. We finished on a score line St Nicks 6.05, Midleton 2.03. Well done to all the players for their efforts we knew it was going to be a big challenge in this league and this is proving to be the case, three defeats from three tells some of the story but doesn’t reflect the effort and heart shown by the lads, thanks again to the parents who as always give great support and encouragement . Our focus now turns to hurling, training will continue this week as soon as times/venues are finalised.

Panel: Conor Morley, Josh Carey, Marcas Lambe, Adam O Connor, Daragh Egan, Tomas Dunlea, Daniel Garde, James McSweeney, Cathraigh Cronin, Eoghan Fraser, Odhran Dennigen, Jack Foley, Odhran Rabitte, Paddy Walsh, Sean McSharry (Capt.), John Paul McManus, Ben Fitzpatrick, Callum O’Brien

On Bank Holiday Monday last we travelled to Sallybrook to take on Glanmire in the U12 Football Eastern League. From the throw in and lead by Captain Daniel Donovan, Tiago Fleming and Eoin Hurley we started brightly winning our battles all over the field. This hard work was rewarded with the impressive Daniel Donovan ( 1-2 )putting us 1-2 to no score in front after 10 mins. As expected Glanmire battle back with some hard fought scores as our backs  Ben Troy, Joey Moran and Tom Smith were marking their men tightly. Then as the half finish a long ball in from midfield and great determination to win the ball by the lively Patrick O Dowd , yielded another goal. This put us 2-2 to 3 pts up at the break. The second half start brightly as the first, with a pointed free after good play from Tiago Fleming and David Kelly. This is as good as it got for our young magpies as Glanmire started to get a grip on the game. They slowly chipped away at our lead despite the efforts of Noah Cahill, Eoin Hurley and Shane O Connor and with five minutes remaining we were 2-9 to 2-4 down. This could of been a lot more only for the excellent goalkeeping of Darragh Savage, who kept us in the game for long periods. The lads gave everything put were unlucky on the day. The scoreline will flatter our opponents as we worked tirelessly to the end. Thanks to Glanmire for hosting as games are hard to come by in the last few weeks, due to the weather. It finished 3-11 to 2-4. Well done again lads.

On Saturday morning our Under 10 panel travelled to Glenville for an early 10am start to our first football game of this years Rebel Og organised Go Games series. In total we had 35 players across three teams, each team getting two games v Glenville. Despite the wet under foot conditions and a slippery football our boys showed some great heart and skills, most encouraging also to see an improvement in teamplay leading to some great defending and scores. All games were very evenly contested with very little between all teams on the day. Congrats to the boys on what was yet another great display. Thanks also to Brendan and his coaches in Glenville for organising. Our next game is hurling, away to Douglas on Saturday 30th March at 11am.

We had our first competitive outing this year on Saturday morning as we welcomed Éire Óg to Clonmult Memorial Park. All our players have worked really hard at training over the last number of weeks and were ready for match action.
We fielded three teams and each team played three fifteen minute games. All of the games were very competitive and our lads showed great skills and battling spirit.
It is great to see the progress that all our players have made over the winter and all our lads performed really well.
Next Saturday we will have our first competitive hurling match of the year against Douglas in Midleton. The games start at 11am and all support is welcome.

We had on first game of the year on Saturday morning where 37 young magpies made the trip to Pairc Ui Chaoimh to play a football blitz on the 4G pitch. On what was a perfect morning for football the enthusiasm and endeavour from all players was great to see. We have a packed programme lined up for the season ahead and we are looking forward to heading back up to the Pairc this coming Saturday for our first hurling games of the season. 

Ladies Football

U16 Football League

On Saturday last, our U16 Girls travelled to Fermoy to take on Fermoy in Round 4 of the East Cork County football League. We had 14 girls at our disposal against a strong Fermoy Panel of 26, and sportingly they matched our 14.

On a lovely afternoon for football we started in good spirits but unfortunality things didn’t go our way as we found it difficult to defend against Fermoy’s constant waves of attack. An expertly converted Rachel Quirke penalty just before the break, just about kept us in the game. Score at half time, Midleton 1:2 Fermoy 2:6

After a bit of reflection and advice from Neil we took to the field again.

‘Fantastic’ is the word that sums up the performance in the second half. The backs were brilliant from Diana in goal through the full backs out to the half backs. They attacked the Fermoy forwards in packs and defended as if their lives depended on it. They didn’t allow the Fermoy girls the same time and freedom on the ball and we started to turn them over. Midway through this half Misha attacked from the wing and fired an unstoppable ball to the back of the Fermoy net. We were back in the game.

Our centre field also started to get on top of proceedings in the middle of the pitch and as we started to supply our forwards with good ball we found ourselves back in the game. With 10 mins left we pulled the score back to just 3 points and gaining momentum. Against the run of play the Fermoy girls broke and after a scramble in the goal mouth, struck the ball into the net.

The girls ploughed forward and finished the game camped in the Fermoy back line and a bullet of a shot from Ella’s foot reduced the deficit to 4 points, but unfortunately we ran out of time as the girls harried and hunted seeking those elusive scores. These are an exceptional bunch of players and we can’t wait for the next game. Keep it going girls.

Final Score Midleton 3:6 Fermoy 3:10

Team: Diana Perkins Oteh, Alice O'Donnell, Denise Collins, Megan Kelly, Aisling McCarthy (0-1), Jodie Keegan O'Connell, Caoimhe Cronin, Rachel Quirke (1-4), Selena O'Riordan, Ella Quirke (1-0), Vivienne Gleeson (0-1), Grace O'Leary, Amy Murray, Mischa Daly Harkin (1-0)

Girls Fé14-A East Cork Féile was held in the grounds of Pobalscoil na Trionóide in Youghal on Monday morning (18th March). Midleton, with an almost full squad of 22 players, were paired off in the only quarter-final, against St. Nick's. The girls played superbly and ran out deserving winners at 1-09 to no score. There followed a semi-final against a very strong Aghada team. Whilst this game proved a much sterner test for our girls, their strength of interplay, ensuring that ever player on the ball was always supported, allowed Midleton to stretch away from Aghada and qualify for the final on a score of 3-05 to 1-01. Glanmire, having already qualified, awaited. After a quick turnaround, the final was underway and both teams gave it their all. At half-time Glanmire, having played with the wind, were ahead by 1-01 to 0-01. In the second half both teams traded scores and Midleton did well at keeping Glanmire from stretching away. At the end, however, Glanmire proved strong enough and took the East-Cork Féile title on a score of 2-03 to 0-02. When all is said and done, we counldn't be prouder of our girls who fought tooth and nail for each other. They showed great skill and interplay and were a credit to their club colours. Both teams now go on to represent East-Cork in the Cork County Féile.

The Midleton squad travelled with big numbers and had a large contingent of younger U13s making their debut on the full size pitch/goals and all-in rules.

Midleton got off to a good start and were leading at half-time 2-1 to 0-1

Ballgarvan fought back very bravely in the second half but Midleton ran out winners 3-2 to 0-3.Scorers on the night were Emily Lambe, Rachel Ryan and Lora Dineen.

It was a great opportunity to give the squad a competitive challenge match early in the season as we prepare for a highly competitive league campaign and we would like to thank parents and supporters for travelling.
