Juvenile

Fé10

On Saturday morning our Fé 10s travelled to Ballinaspig Lawn in Bishopstown for our sixth hurling game in the Go Games series. We had a panel of 33 players on the day, fielding three teams against a very evenly matched Bishopstown outfit. Prior to the games we asked for 100% effort from all and it has to be said we got it back in spades, each and every boy hurling out of their skin for the famed Magpies. Our boys have also shown a massive improvement in their skill levels since the start of the year and this was shown in abundance against the Maroon and Whites. A total of five games were played in ideal conditions and there was very little separating teams at the final whistle. 

Back to football training this Thursday evening at 7pm in the tech field and a big test on Saturday 22nd June at 11am when we travel to Glanmire for a football blitz against Glanmire and Nemo Rangers.

Fé11

On Saturday we had the pleasure of playing on the finals day of the prestigious John Kerins annual under 11 football tournament. We had qualified coming through a tough group of Clonakilty St Michaels Kinsale and St Nicks. The finals day was hosted in lovely sunshine on the perfect surface of Pairc ui Rinn. It was great for the lads to display the skills on cork's no. 2 pitch in front of a fine crowd. We were drawn in the quarter final against Douglas.  A cracking 1st half where were played well and left only a single pt in it at the short whistle. In second half we tried hard but Douglas just played a little better and deserved their win. All our 19 payers got to play in the game and received their medals for reaching finals from the Kerins family. Congratulations to Douglas who went on to win the tournament.

On Sunday morning last we play Sars in the next round of the C3 Hurling league. In what is always a tight affair, the  lads hurled very well from the off. Lead by Captain Joey Moran, David Kelly and Jake Kirby we took the game to Sars. With scores hard to come by due to the excellent defending from both teams, nevertheless we were not detered. A brilliant goal by Cian Fitz got us off and running after some good work out the field by Darragh Cronin and Tomas Geary. Shortly after good work by Cian again, resulted in a free which he hit himself to put us 1-1 to no score after 20 mins. In that time our defense was strong Noah Cahill, Lochlann Stewart and Captain Moran made life difficult for the tricky Sars forwards. As the half drew to a close, we began to get on top. We struggled to register another score until Josh Hogan popped up for a good score to leave us 1 - 02 to no score at the short whistle. We began the second half strong, with Matthew McSweeney, Conor Finn and Patrick O Dowd all really coming strong in the game. Cian Fitzgerald  then pointed a great score,who had a fine game after a slow start . But as Sars do they battled back. Scoring three quick points they began to dominate. We weathered storm and never panicked. A fortuitous second goal was quickly followed by a point from Josh Hogan this put us in a good position going into the final 10 mins. At this stage Josh Foley, Darragh Cronin and Rian O Driscoll were hurling well. A late goal despite the bravery of goalkeeper Diarmud Lester who was solid throughout the game. This left for a nervous finish but we held out for a good win. Well done to all on a hard earned victory.

Midleton 2-04 to Sars 1-03

Fé 13

We met Bishopstown twice this past week first in P1 Football on Monday evening, this turned out to be a bit of a classic. Both teams threw off the shackles and put on a tremendous display of attacking football. We had a great start and took a early lead through goals from Darragh Egan and Callum O’Brien, Bishopstown came back at us scoring a goal, a free from Sean McSharry extended our lead but Town scored a goal and a point to draw level. We got two more points Sean and Odhran Dennigan doing the damage. They came back with another point then Daniel Garde picked out Eoghan Frasier with a great pass and Eoghan finished with a fine goal. A point from Darragh from play wrapped our scoring for the first half but our opponents scored a goal and two points to leave the scoreline at the short whistle; Midleton 3-04 Bishopstown 3-05. The second half resumed with Sean getting a fantastic point from play, Town responded in kind. Gearoid Cashman then goaled after great work from Paddy Walsh. Town knocked over two pointed frees, Gearoid was brought down while bearing down on goal, Sean Mc stepped up and dispatched the penalty to the back of the net. A point from Town followed by a goal saw them take the lead with four minutes left, they then added another point, despite launching a few last ditch attacks we couldn’t get another score. Final score Midleton 5-05 Bishopstown 4-10. A great effort from our lads, they can be very proud of this brave display.

On Wednesday evening we were home again to Bishopstown this time in P1 hurling. It was obvious from the start that we had the upper hand on top in every line we began to dominate. Early pressure saw two points from Peter Barrett one from play one from free then Conor Morley goaled after a good pass from Daniel Garde. Two more points one from Peter and one from Paddy Walsh from play was quickly followed by a Darragh Egan goal. Peter and Daniel Garde had a point each from play before Bishopstown got off the mark with a point from free. Darragh pointed from play, followed by Daniel from a free before Peter and James McSweeney both pointed from play, to leave us in command at the end of the first half on a scoreline of 2.09 to 0.01. Bishopstown came out fighting for the second half and had goal and point on the board before we knew what was happening. Then Luca Brodkorb had a fine point from play before Fionn Kelly found the back of the net. Luca and Daniel added two more points from play, Town had a good point from play before Eoghan Fraser split the posts with a fine point, a late Bishopstown goal proved to be a consolation score we saw out the game on a scoreline of Midleton 3.14 Bishopstown 2.03. Well done lads this is 4 wins out of 6 in the P1 hurling. Our next outing is C3 hurling V Ballincollig on Wednesday the 19th at home at 7.30pm

On Saturday next we will host the inaugural Bill O’Keeffe U13 Hurling tournament. We will welcome Inniscarra, Lismore and Killeagh to Clonmult Park. Proceeding will start at 12 o’clock for what should be a fantastic days hurling. All welcome.

On Saturday evening we played away in our third Hurling game of the year against Douglas. The game was played in perfect conditions on a dry and warm evening, although with a slight breeze going down the pitch. We had the breeze in the first half and were first off the mark with an early point from Michael Roe. Each team then traded points and the score was three points apiece after fifteen minutes, with our points coming from Niall Lang and Dave Cremin. We then took the lead and never looked back, our next six points came from Tiarnan Roche and Dave Cremin. Our defence were excellent on the night and gave up very few scoring opportunities to Douglas. After 25 minutes our goalkeeper Zach Smyth made 3 point blank saves in a goal mouth scramble that kept us in the lead. Our opponents did pull a goal back just before halftime to leave the score 0:09 to 1:03 at halftime. In the second half we knew that we would need to defend well, as our opponents had the breeze. Our defence again battled brilliantly in the second half and our forwards added further points through Dave, Tiarnan and Tadgh O’Leary Hayes. We finished the stronger of the two teams in the closing stages and finished out winners with a score line of 0:13 to 1:08 to record our first victory of the season. The players put in a great effort throughout and they can be very proud of their performance. Our next game is on the 26th June at home to Ballincollig in the league.

Our panel for the game was, Zach Smyth, Fionn Dalton, Alex Maloney, Dara Scanlon, Cathal Beausang Odhran Prenter, Brian O’Connell, Niall Lang, Dave Cremin, Tiarnan Roche, Michael Roe, Evan McGrath, Tadgh O’Leary Hayes, Daniel Coffey, Kamil Noack & William Kavanagh

Ladies Football

U8

The U8 girl’s football team have had a busy week. Last Sunday 9th June Midleton welcomed Aghada to Clonmult Memorial Park for a friendly challenge game. Despite the heavy and persistent rain, 17 players turned up and were split into 2 teams with every player on the field. The matches were 10minutes a-side. The Midleton girls continued to show continued improvement in ball skills with some fine displays of soloing and passing. The players were:  Rhona Fenton, Sorcha O’Driscoll, Ciara Finn, Roisin O’Connor, Aisling Foley, Penny Murphy, Hazel O’Connor, Lucy Hynes, Sara Cahill, Nessa Cronin, Molly Linehan, Moya Dennigan, Abi Pyne, Cara O’Connor, Ava McSweeny.

On Saturday June 15th Midleton played in the U8 football invitational blitz hosted by Glanmire GAA. This blitz consisted of 4 matches against teams from Watergrasshill, Eirn’s Own, Glanmire and Passage West. 16 players from Midleton were divided into 2 teams with no substitutes, every player was on the field for all matches. The matches were 10 mins a-side, with 4 games to play this would be our toughest challenge this year Again the afternoon matches began in the rain however this did not damp the girl’s spirit and enthusiasm as both teams dominated the field and held on strong until the final whistle. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon of football.  The players were: Roisin O’Connor, Hazel O’Connor, Nessa Cronin, Ciara Finn, Molly Linehan, Cara O’Connor, Penny Murphy, Lily Matterson, Sorcha O’Driscoll, Sara Cahill, Abi Pyne, Meabh Mc Cormack, Rebecca Moloney, Amber Cotter, Rhona Fenton, Lucy Hynes.

Camogie

Féile Na nGael 2019

The John West Féile Na nGael 2019 took place last weekend in Cork and saw 48 Cork Camogie teams and 48 visiting teams from Counties all over Ireland participating. There were 6 Camogie divisions with each division having 16 teams (8 Cork & 8 County).

Our U14 team played in Division 2 with the 1st group match taking place in Midleton on Friday evening, 7th June. We played Loughgiel Shamrocks(Antrim) and got off to a slow start finding it hard to get scores. There was very little between the teams but with matches only 15 minutes-a-side when you are behind it is hard to get back on top. We lost this game but put it behind us quickly and focused on the next match v Glen Rovers which again was played in Midleton on Friday evening. With a few positional changes and the girls more determined to perform at their best we secured a win. Our next match was against or visiting team Naas(Kildare) @ 11am on Saturday morning 8th June in Midleton GAA. A great game between two evenly matched teams which we won by 1 point to secure a place in the cup quarter final v Bellaghy(Derry) on Saturday afternoon in Bishopstown GAA. From this stage on it was knock-out. The girls had a tough battle on their hands but from start to finish hooked & blocked, defended superbly and attacked at every opportunity. Their hard work paid off wining by a goal to put us through to the Cup semi-final which was played on Sunday 9th @ 1pm in Na Piarsaigh GAA v Clonakilty. Again another physical and challenging game in showery conditions but we battled for every ball and some super goalkeeping kept us in it until the last puck of the ball to see Clonakilty win by 1 point to progress to the final & going on to win the Cup final. This U14 team played outstanding throughout the whole competition. With a panel of 22 girls of which only 9 are U14 it is a young team. Their work rate, skill, battling and teamwork throughout the competition was a pleasure for mentors, supporters, families & friends to watch. We saw some great individual performances along with superb teamwork throughout. Although disappointed to have left the competition by the narrowest of margins at the semi-final stage it was a great achievement for the girls to get this far in a National competition. These girls represented their club brilliantly both on and off the pitch and their club is very proud of them.

We were delighted to be able to support our visiting team Naas in the Shield final which they won v St Mullins(Carlow). A great bunch of girls and a pleasure to host for the Féile weekend. We have no doubt that friendships were made between both clubs that will last long into the future and we thank Naas for their kind gifts and wish them all the best in the future.

We would also like to thank everyone who helped in away to make the Féile weekend such a memorable and successful one. From use of facilities, parents hosting, umpires, linesman, pitch co-ordinating, helping with refreshments and everything else that went into making Féile 2019 a weekend to remember we sincerely thank you. A huge thank you to Ballinacurra GAA for the use of the pitch & facilities on Friday evening as we would not have been able to host the group stages without it. Thank you to those who ensured the pitch was lined & looking superb ready for matches, it was greatly appreciated.

Panel: Jill Connaughton, Elle McManus, Tori Buckley, Jade Fitzgerald, Heather White, Muireann NÍ Chonchubhair, Emma O’Neill, Ruthi Hennessy, Aoife Fitzgerald, Laura Goulding, Isabelle Nestor, Emma O’Sullivan, Emily Lamb, Lora Dineen, Anna Sheehan, Kelly Quirke, Rachel Ryan, Saoirse Ní Theangana, Rachel Greene, Ríonnach Finn, Grace Kelleher, Séana O’Brien.

The U10’s were in action against Carrigtwohill on Tuesday evening last . The girls put on a great display of camogie with some fantastic point scoring. These girls are a great bunch and they are improving with every game. Thanks to Carrigtwohill for hosting us this evening and to the parents for travelling in their numbers.

The U9’s were in action again on Tuesday night last when we travelled to Carrigtwohill.

The large support witnessed a good tough game and the work rate from each and every one of our young ladies was superb.

They supported each other and made great runs for the sliotar.

The work they have put in over the past few weeks is being transferred to the pitch.

Thanks to our hosts Carrigtwohill and the young ref for a good game and hope to see them again in the future.

Well done to all our young Magpies on once again representing the club excellently.

Training and Matches coming up soon details will be forwarded to parents.

No rest for this super bunch of young players !!
