On Saturday morning last we had big numbers for Hurling Training. This Training Session our last for a few weeks was made up with a lot of Fun Drills mostly and Small sided Hurling matches. The lads are making great progress  every week and we hope they keep up the practice at home.

We hope the lads enjoy the small summer break and we will return with Training on the 10th of August.

On Saturday morning our young hurlers took to the field in Ovens as they faced Éire Og in hurling.  It was an action packed morning, where we fielded three teams Our Magpies again played some very tough and competitive matches. We have been working very hard in training the last number of weeks and it was great to see our players showing what they learned on the pitch.  

Due to the Cúl Camp we will not train next week.

On Saturday in lovely sunshine our under 11s were thrilled to welcome two stars  of the Cork Senior hurling team to Midleton. Our own Conor Lehane and Glen Rovers Patrick Horgan gave a coaching session to the lads. This was as a result of winning a competition kindly sponsored by Blackwater motors. A great turnout of 34 lads, despite holiday season, many in Cork colours listened attentively to their words of wisdom and undertook the new drills they put them through with great gusto. The young magpies were delighted to show off their own skills aswell and got great encouragement from Hoggie and Conor. They were very generous with their time afterwards as well signing everything that the lads asked for and stood in for numerous pictures also. The boys were delighted with the afternoon’s activities. Many thanks again to Conor, Patrick and Blackwater motors.

On Thursday evening last we travelled to Rostellan for the next round of the Eastern Football League. On a beautiful summers evening we took on Aghada, on what can only be decribed as perfect condititons for football. From the start we took the game to our hosts, with two quick fire points from Captain Peter Kelly and Cian Stack. This allowed us to settle quickly and after some good inter passing out the field, the ball eventually came to full forward Jake Kirby who rifled the ball to the back of the net. Then came a period of dominance from our opponents kicking 1-5 without reply. The boys did not panic, with some excellent kick passing which was a feature all night. All over the field we began to win our battles, goals from Cian and Peter and the impressive Jake who kicked two points. Our opponents struggled to cope and as a result we finished the half strong leading 3-05 to 2-05. The second half started as the first with good work from Daniel Donovan and Ben Troy in midfield. Both were excellent all evening. This resulted in a very good point for Cian another from Darrgh Savage followed and Jake scroed his second goal of the evening. This put us in a very good position. By now our backs were really playing well paticularly Rhys Quill, Tomas Geary, Joey Moran and the rock solid Noah Cahill. Our opponents struggled to break us down despite playing some very good football themselves. The level of performance never dropped, Tiago Fleming, David Kelly and Daniel kept driving through the Aghada defense. This resulted in further scores for Cian, Darragh and a third Jake Kirby goal. We finished the game really strong with further two points from Daniel. Overall this was a fantastic team performance. The lads are improving each game and I have no doubt this will continue for the rest of the year. Our next game VS Douglas on July 10th in Midleton TBC

FINAL SCORE – Midleton 5-12 Aghada 3-08

On Saturday evening the magpies had a home football game against glen rovers. In what was perfect football conditions our lads started well with points from Zach Smith Darragh Aherne and two from Niall Lang gave our lads an excellent start. However a fortuitous goal got St Nicks back in the game. A well taken penalty from Tadhg O Leary put the home side back on track this was followed up by an excellent score from Eoin Higgins. Score line at halftime was 1-5 to 1-2 in favour of the magpies. The second half was a different story as Midleton increased there work rate 100% The back line of Darragh Aherne Adam Collins Sean Cronin were giving nothing away. Strong running from Rory Lester Alex Moloney and Darragh Scanlon was creating havoc for the glens backs. When man of the match Cormac Ryan got the first score of the second half it seemed to spark the home side into life. Tadhg O Leary got a fine score which was followed up by three in a row from Niall Lang at this stage Midleton were well on top Darragh Fitzgerald, Darragh Higgins and Eoin Higgins added more points. Cormac MacAongasa and Samuel Morrissey were equally causing difficulties for the Nicks backs. Midleton finished in style this was a great second half and a special mention must go to Alex Howard between the sticks who pulled off three outstanding saves over the course of the game. Final score 1-13 to 1-3. Panel as follows Alex Howard, Darragh Aherne, Adam Collins, Sean Cronin, Darragh Scanlon, Alex Moloney, Rory Lester, Tadhg O Leary, Niall Lang, Zach Smith, Eoin Higgins, Darragh Fitzgerald, Cormac Ryan, Tiernan O Connell, Cormac MacAongasa, Darragh Higgins Samuel Morrissey.

On Wednesday evening, 26th June, we played at home in our fourth Hurling league game of the year against Ballincollig. The game was played in perfect conditions on a dry and warm evening. We were against a slight breeze in the first half. Our defence played well on the night and gave up very few goal scoring opportunities, which had previously been an issue. But unfortunately the opposition took almost every point scoring opportunity they got. All our scores came from the placed ball from Michael Roe and David Cremin. At halftime we trailed by three points having come back into the game late in the first half. In the second half we knew that we would need to battle to try and get back level with our opponents. Our defence again battled in the second half, but we just couldn’t get enough possession for our forwards. Our opponents continued to take their opportunities and enjoyed most of the possession. The final score was 0:08 to 1:17. The players put in a great effort throughout. Our next game is on the Wednesday 3rd July, away to St. Finbarrs in the league.

Our panel for the game was:  Zach Smyth, Fionn Dalton, Dara Scanlon, Cathal Beausang, Brian O’Connell, Niall Lang, Dave Cremin, Tiarnan Roche, Michael Roe, Evan McGrath, Tadgh O’Leary Hayes, Kamil Noack, David Noack, Rory Lister, David Greene, Darragh Fitzgerald, Rian De Barra & William Kavanagh.

The U10’s were in action on Tuesday evening when we travelled to Ballincollig. In glorious sunshine we ran two small sided games in parallel. All of the girls got plenty of touches in two very even matches. The girls continue to improve with great lifting, striking & blocking on display. Thanks to Ballincollig for the much needed ice lollies and to the parents for travelling and giving the girls great encouragement. Next up is a home match V Killeagh on Sunday.

The Midleton U14 girls played their 4th and final round of the league last Sat evening 22nd June in Midleton GAA against Watergrasshill . It was or first outing since reaching the Feile All Ireland semi-final and the girls got off to a flying start with some early goals having got the better of the earlier exchanges. There was 21 girls present for the match and we had the luxury of rotating all the bench to provide significant time to our developing U13 girls. Watergrasshill put up a spirited effort and kept battling and trying to the very end, however the Midleton girls proved to be too strong and ran out as winners. We have now won 3 out of 4 games in this initial league phase, which puts us in 2nd place in the league overall and now we await the Juvenile County board's draw for the next round. The focus will now shift to the Imokilly Summer leagues for both U13 and U15 where the girls will get an opportunity to play an additional 4 or 5 matches . Scores for Midleton were a follows: Rachel Ryan 3-2 , Emily Lamb 1-1 , Emma Sullivan 1-0 , Saoirse Twomey 0-1 , Kelly Qurke 0-3 , Aoife Fitzgeald 1-1 , Tori Buckley 1-0

Our U11 girls played Clonakilty on Saturday 29th June at home in Midleton in what was a highly entertaining game very competitive from both teams all the way through. Some excellent skill from both sides in very hot conditions. Thanks to Ger Sweeney from Douglas for refereeing a fine game and to Jay Keating for the Photos . As always thank you to the parents for supporting our girls
