On a beautiful evening in Dungourney our junior C footballers took on Aghada in the 2020 East Cork final. Midleton started well and with the breeze at their backs showed great build up play but took some time to get the accuracy correct in front of goals. Throughout the team there was great determination and teamwork and the ball was quickly transitioned from defence into attack, this lead to some great scores being taken. Adam Meade expertly finished a pass to the Aghada net to really set the Midleton side on their way. The halftime score read Midleton 1-03 Aghada 0-01. Aghada being as good a team as they are were never going to be easily beaten and resolutely fought their way back into the game. It took some great and disciplined defence from the Magpies to keep Aghada at bay. As the game reached its conclusion Midleton were able to kick for home and take some great scores to leave the final score at Midleton 1-08 Aghada 0-07. Midleton are now the East Cork junior C football champions for the first time. Captain Cormac O’Brien became the first Midleton man to raise the Micheal O Suilleabháin cup aloft amid great celebrations. Well done boys!

On Sunday last Midleton GAA club fielded a fifth adult hurling team for the first time. While the final score line was reflective of Castlelyons dominance the Midleton team showed great character and continued to try right to the end. Several players made their debuts for the adult club and we would like to congratulate  Evan, Adam, Colin, Phelim and Ben on what will be the first of many games for the club.

Fé8 Notes

This weekend involved a trip to Ballincollig for the first football match of the year, with over 35 boys and their parents making the trip west. All matches were evenly contested, and the lads showed some fantastic football skills throughout. Thanks to everyone who came to support for the lads. Thanks to Ballincollig for very sporting games.  There will be hurling training on Tuesday night at Park South. Next Saturday will be an away trip to Sarsfields for the second hurling match of the year.  

 

Fé9 Notes

We brought 30 of our Fe9s to Bishopstown last Saturday morning. We played 3 matches each and the lads did themselves proud by putting in great performances in each of the games. We scored some lovely points and great goals in all the games. The lads are improving each week at Training and we encourage them to keep practicing at home. Thanks to all the parents for making the journey to Bishopstown.

***Important News regarding the Ladies Football Summer Camp***

From Orlagh Farmer:

I have to cancel the 2-Day Rebelette training sessions. I was unaware that an email from the Secretary was sent until it was brought to my attention. I did seek approval from the LGFA (Croke Park), however there was a misinterpretation regarding the approval and structure of these 2-Day sessions. Apologies with such short notice, this has only come to my attention yesterday. The congregation of the different age groups together in the club is not permitted this summer due to Covid/Government directives and insurance purposes. Only invited coaches to club training sessions (by age group) organised by the club are permitted and are covered by the LGFA injury fund. 

I am very disappointed with this outcome and I wish to apologise to the club, the parents and to all the young girls who signed up. It was always our intention as Cork senior players to benefit the young girls as they have missed out on so much. I'd appreciate it if parents were informed of cancellation and full refunds will start on Monday, please be advised that the refunding process may take some time. I will follow up with parents via email as soon as possible.

Sorry again for this inconvenience at short notice.

Kind regards,

Orlagh

Camogie Notes

U14 Notes

We got off to a super start for a new week of camogie with our U14 girls putting in a great performance against Courcey Rovers in the U14A league last Sunday evening 13th June in sweltering heat. The team captained today by Kate Saunderson were quickly into their stride with a couple of early goals and points from forwards Tia Wall Wallace and Mia Collins.

 

U14 Captain Kate Saunderson v Courcey Rovers

When halftime arrived all our forwards who received great service from our two very impressive midfielders Sorcha Cronin and Roisin McManus had contributed to the scoreline. As it was so warm we brought on all our allowed subs and those girls really kept the high standards of the first half going into the second. We conceded a superbly taken goal by Courcey which was there only success against our defence which stood up strong with Alannah Magan, Pippa Hennessey and Miriam Finn holding the line, we ran out comfortable winners in the end and we would like to thank Courcey Rovers and their management team for hosting us and wish them all the best for the remainder of the season. Thanks to those parents that made the long journey to support us, I know the girls really appreciate it. Finally I would like to mention that every girl in a Midleton jersey today contributed to what was a fantastic team effort and they did themselves proud. Well done girls, a great team effort was put in by all.

U14 Panel v Courcey Rovers

Junior Team

Our Second match last Sunday was our Juniors who Played Inniscarra in a Challenge with a Final Score of  2-11  Inniscarra 1-14.We travelled up to Inniscarra on a sunny Sunday night for a tough encounter with the home team. Despite being 6 points down at one stage our girls fought back for a well-deserved draw. Goals from Sadhbh Beausang and Jodie Keegan O’Connell and excellent points from Clara McCarthy’s free taking ensured we came away with a draw and it could have been more if not for some excellent saves by the oppositions goalkeeper. Despite picking up a few injuries the girls battled to the end against good Inniscarra team.

A few injuries did not stop these girls as we were on the road again o epna misercable wet  Tuesday night in a home game in Ballinacurra GAA in which we started our league campaign with hard fought win over a game St Fanahan’s side. This was actually our first ever Adult League game, due to there being no league fixtures last year.

Playing against the elements in the first half our back did brilliantly to see us leading at the break 5 points to 4 . Despite an goal early in the 2nd half for Fanahan’s we kept our composure and an excellent goal form Sadhh Beausang and points from Clara McCarthy, Rebecca Cassidy , Abbie Foley and Lucy Wallis, who was outstanding throughout, ensured we pulled away to win by 4 points and a winning start to our League campaign. Final Score Midleton 1-11 to St Fanahan’s 1-07. Off to a great start ladies , well done to all.

Midleton v Aghabullogue U16 on Wed 16th June in Coachford
It had been many months since Midleton U16 girls had played a competitive fixture due to the restrictions and we were delighted to get back on the pitch for this away fixture v Aghabollogue.
Aghabullogue won the toss and elected to play with the wind in the opening half and opened up the encounter by applying severe pressure on the Midleton goal and got some early rewards by scoring 1-1, however due to some heroic defending and goalkeeping, Midleton managed to reduce the deficit to 1-2 to 0-3 at the end of the first quarter.
The second quarter was end to end stuff with both teams taking scoring chances and the 2 point gap was maintained with the half finishing at 1-4 to 0-5 to the home team.
Upon the restart of the 3rd quarter, Midleton started to apply some pressure and kept the score point ticking, however the 2 point gap remained constant throughout the quarter as it finished at 1-7 to 0-8.
Midleton dominated proceedings early in the 4th quarter and managed to draw level at 1-7 to 10 points and were looking likely to come away with a victory, however we got caught by some well taken individual scores  taken in injury time resulting in an Aghabullogue win by 2-8 to 10 points.
This was the club’s first game at Premier level and provided the girls with some much needed match practice leading into a very busy period including the 2020 Co final scheduled for Sun 20th June next. Next league game is away to Cobh on Sunday June 27th
