We took 36 Young Magpies to the 4G pitch in Pairc ui Chaoimh on Saturday morning.We had 4 Teams of 9 playing this Hurling Blitz and the lads showed great skills and got some fine scores throughout. We were up against Ballincollig, Carrigtwohill and Valley Rovers.

As Coaches we are very pleased with the progress of this group.

Thanks to all the parents and coaches that made this trip to Pairc ui Chaoimh.Training will resume as normal on Saturday mornings at 10am on the main pitch.

On Saturday morning we made the short trip to Cobh to take part in the latest Rebel Og hurling blitz. We had 4 teams and 35 young and enthusiastic magpies togged and ready for action on what was a great morning for hurling. Opposition over the hour included Cobh, Kiltha Og and Fr O Neills and the games were mixed between ground and air hurling. A great morning was had by everyone with all teams being very competitive throughout all games. Training continues in the club on Saturday mornings at 10am.

It was back to the small ball this week with an away fixture against Kinsale. We played nine very competitive games and got positive results in the majority of these.
We were thrilled with all our players, they battled for every ball and played some great hurling over the course of the games. We fielded three teams and all our players got plenty of touches and showed great skills.
We will have hurling training at 7pm Thursday on the back pitch in the club and next Saturday we are taking part in a hurling blitz in Killeagh.

On Saturday morning we travelled to Pairc Ui Chinneide in Killeagh with a panel of 41 for the Killeagh Under 10 hurling tournament. We fielded three teams on the day, competing in both the O'Byrne Cup and Doocey Cup. We had a mixed bag of results on the day with none of our teams progressing from the group stages. However it has to noted that we were competitive in most games against opposition from Killeagh, Kiltha Og, Lisgoold, Mallow and Abbeyside. Well done to all players on the day who represented the club with pride and fought to the very last whistle in every game. This was a great experience for the boys to play some competitive games and there were some very encouraging signs as to how this group are developing and progressing as a unit, overall moving in the right direction. A massive Thank You to Sean Crowley and his team of volunteers in Killeagh for both the invite to play in the tournament and the hospitality given on the day, it was very much appreciated by players, coaches and parents. A Thank You also to the parents who stayed around and cheered on the young Magpies for all games.

Two sets of Rebel og games for the 11s last week. First up was hurling v Youghal and Fermoy. Fantastic turnout of 39 young magpies. Three games with all players getting great game time. What was particularly pleasing was the work rate and never say die attitude, along with the hooking and blocking. Our second set of games was two cracking games in football v Kilta og. A draw and a narrow win for the home team showed how close the games were. Great football skills and entertainment for the big attendance. Next up bus trip to St Martins GAA Club for hurling blitz.

On Saturday morning last in Clonmult Memorial Park. We hosted Ballincollig in the next round of the Premier 1 Hurling league. From the off it was a tight and tense affair with both teams no willing to give in to each other. We had to work hard for our scores with Peter Barrett sending over a few crucial frees to keep us in the game. All over the pitch we were tight to our men and contesting every ball. Lead by Captain Nicky Coughlan, Matthew McSweeney, Josh Hogan and Cian Stack to name a few. We finished the half strong and at halftime we lead 6pts - 5pts. On the resumption the lads flew out the blocks with two quick fire goals from the impressive Stack after good work out the field. This put us in a commanding position, but Ballincollig to their credit refused to wilt. Two quick points after the goals steadied the opposition. This was followed but a super Matthew Herbert point, but Ballincollig responded with a goal of their own. This left it a one point game until Mikey Pedley smashed the ball into the net, Stack followed up with a couple of frees and Herbert again put over another peach. Going into the home stretch we had a good lead. The backs defended heroically at times ( real Hell’s Kitchen stuff ), but it was Ballincollig scored an opportunist goal to leave it a nervy finished. At the final whistle, both teams were left exhausted on the field. Well done lads. Midleton 3-10 v Ballincollig 2-9.

We also played a very competitive match Vs Kiltha Og on Sunday morning in which we also came out on top by a small margin.

On Saturday the 31st we travelled to Inniscarra to play a challenge match in preparation for our upcoming league fixtures. It was a well worth exercise all players got valuable game time and we came out with a narrow victory. Competition for places is intense which is good for this panel of players.

Monday the 2nd September saw us travelling westbound again, to play table toppers Ballincollig in the P1 Hurling league. We had a nervous start conceding two soft goals in the first couple of minutes but our lads hurled their way back into the game with some excellent scores. The halftime score was Ballincollig 3-02 Midleton 1-06. The second half was a ding dong battle with both teams swapping the lead, we scorned several chances to increase our advantage and played the ultimate price when Ballincollig goaled late on to take the honours on the scoreline Ballincollig 4-09 Midleton 2-11, the match was of the highest standard, well refereed and helped by the approach of both sets of players. Carthaigh Cronin had an outstanding hours hurling, Josh Carey had a busy night and performed admirably at fullback, Eoghan Frasier and James Mc Sweeney (0-04) were in top form at midfield, Paddy Walsh finished with 1-01 and was a thorn in the Ballincollig defence throughout, Peter Barrett (0-03) and Luca Brodkorb (1-02), had top lass games. Captain, Thomas Dunlea (0-01) was another to catch the eye constantly looking for gaps in the defence, Conor Williams, Adam O Connor, John Paul Mc Manus and Darragh Egan had fine outings in what was a fine team performance, we move on to play Douglas on Monday 9 September at home in what should be another cracker with both teams trying to get into the last four.

Saturday the 7th September we headed to Waterford to play Ballygunner and have a day out for the lads. 32 Magpies departed by bus from Clonmult Park. We arrived in Ballygunner and were still in the bus when the match began! We were rattled and a fine Ballygunner side had us on the back foot from the start, we eventually got to grips with them but they had built up a healthy lead, the match was split into three sections, the second of which was much better from our perspective. The third section was also competitive and every player had game time. 4-11 to 1-07 was the final score. Our hosts put on an impressive catering performance as well, the lads tucked into the rolls, sandwiches cakes and drinks before we headed for Tramore. Our lads took to the water like Navy Seals in training! An hour was spent in the surf having the crack, we moved on to Doolys chipper where the lads showed that their appetites could be tested to the full. The chipper ran out of chicken such was the extent of the lads hunger. They moved on to Massimos another health establishment just up the road, chips, fish, burgers and chicken was washed down with healthy coke and 7Up, they weren’t finished yet, someone spotted ice cream and it was set upon with gusto. After two hours of swimming and feasting we headed for home. The bus driver called out to me as we headed for the sweep leaving Dungarvan, he wasn’t sure if the bus could make it up the steep climb ahead the engine was straining as the extra weight from the tuck fest. We crawled up the hill and luckily it was downhill for the rest of the trip home. A good day was had by all and everyone returned safely.

On Sunday September 1st the under 14s had an early start with an away c3 hurling league match against Ballincollig. Throw in was 9.30 and Midleton got off to a flyer with Oscar Brennan opening the scoring with a wonderful point inside a minute. Zach Smith followed with a score from a 65 ,this was soon followed by a goal from Cormac Ryan who was to finish the half with 2 goals and  a point. Eoin Higgins was having a wonderful game at full forward, Tagdh Bohan proved very reliable on the frees and our six backs, Daragh Higgins, Adam Collins, Sean Cronin, Daragh Ahern, Alex Howard and Conor Williams combined as a unit to a very high standard to limit Ballincollig to a single point come half time. Diarmuid Lester proved his worth in goal and was as brave as a lion throughout. Zach and Evan McGrath took complete control at midfield. At half time Midleton led 3 7 to a point. A few changes at half time and off we went again. Fionn Kelly got a lovely score from play, Thomas o Connor and Cormac mac Aongusa played their part, Learai Ward caught a lot of ball and Cian Lambe gave a masterful display at centre forward. Well done to all. Midleton now play Fermoy in the semi-final at the end of the month

U16

Our girls took on Kilbree (Rossmore) in the county u16 championship last Sunday. Having been well beaten last year by the same opposition the girls knew this would be a difficult task, but rise to the occasion they did. Everyone of the 16 girls who travelled the long journey were absolutely outstanding in terms of effort and application. We lost out in the end by 8pts on a scoreline of 2 11 to 0 9. Having been in contention with 5 minutes to go we conceded a late goal, which put an unfair reflection on the effort the girls made. Well done all. We are now in the Premier Plate Championship where we will take on Ballinora this coming week.

Minor

We played Rockban away last Tuesday in the championship. It certainly was a game of 2 halves. Midleton started with a gale in the first half but found it difficult to break down the Rockban defence. Eventually with 5 minutes to go in the first half we went on a scoring spree led by Vivienne Gleeson putting us 13 points ahead. It was backs to the wall then in the second half with Midleton playing with a sweeper to try and hold what we had. The girls were magnificent none more so than 15 year old Yvonne Abernethy. Midleton held out to win on a scoreline of 5 09 to 2 12. Our next round thankfully is not till October which allows the majority of this team focus on upcoming U16 fixtures.

The U10’s had a tough workout against a strong Ballincollig side in Midleton on Saturday evening 7th September. A large turnout allowed us to run two small sided games in parallel with both sides giving a masterclass in striking, hooking, blocking & scoring. Well done to all the girls for a fantastic effort. Thanks to Ballincollig for making the journey to Midleton and to the parents who were out in force as always! Thanks also to our referee’s & umpires – Laura, Isabelle, Kelly & Saoirse who did a great job officiating!

Well done to Jerry Wallace Manager Midleton along with John Daly Medical Limerick to Munster Under 17 team with All Ireland InterProvincial Cup 2019. Well done to all involved!
