Magpie All-Stars

GAA National Inclusive Fitness Day Event.

To mark National Inclusion Day 2021 the Magpie All-Stars would like to extend an open invitation to their training session on Sunday 3rd October from 12noon to 1pm. This year’s theme, “Clann”, is very poignant as we demonstrate that we are all part of the Midleton GAA Family.

Juvenile

Fé7 V Bishopstown

On Saturday morning our young Magpies took to the field in Bishopstown as they faced the home club in football.  It was an action-packed morning, where we fielded five 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.  

Fé7 V Bishopstown

Fé 9 v St Catherine’s

Our lads played St Catherine's at Home on Saturday in Gaelic Football. We had 32 present for this and went with 4 Teams of 8 each.

Our lads played very well on the day and got great scores throughout each of their games. This group are doing very well in both Football and Hurling and we would like to encourage the lads to keep up with the practice.

We would also like to thank St Catherine's GAA for making the trip to Midleton on Saturday.

Fé9 v St Catherine’s

Fé11 notes

This weekend saw 3 teams of fé11s out with the big ball at home in Clonmult. The opposition was Carrigtwohill and Fr O'Neills with 3 and 2 teams.

Each team played 2 games 30 mins long in glorious sunshine.

Well done lads. Training continues this week Tuesday and Thursday.

Fé13 Notes

Fé13 P2 FOOTBALL V KINSALE

The final group game in the P2 football league for the Fé13 lads was a trip to Kinsale on Friday 27th August. With a panel of 24 togging out on the night, there was stiff competition for places. The first quarter was tense with the sides level at 0-03 each at the first water break, thanks in no small part to some heroic saves from goalkeeper Bradley O’Brien. Despite losing some key players to injury in the second quarter, Midleton went in at half time leading on a score of 1-05 to 1-04, with the goal coming from Ewan Murphy.  A strong third quarter was to prove decisive in favour of Kinsale with the home team outscoring us 4-02 to 2-00 in that period, the Midleton gaols coming from Darragh Mullins and Dara Birdthistle. Despite this being their second football game in three days, the lads never gave up and showed real determination right up to the final whistle, with captain Cian Lawton finishing the ball to the net after a well worked team move. Unfortunately, it was not to be on the night with the final score of Kinsale 5-11 Midleton 4-07. The panel for the match was: Bradley O’Brien, Patrick O’Brien, Jason Morley, Rian Casey, Harry Waterman, Cuan Twomey, Luke Bamber, Senan Carroll, Max Murphy, Dara Birdthistle, Darragh Mullins, Ruairi O’Riordan, Cian Lawton (captain), Ewan Murphy, Scott Dunlea, Shane O’Mahony, David Kelly, Sean Gregory, James Carey, Jamie O’Donovan, Michael Barrett, Patrick Collins

Fé13 P2 FOOTBALL V MITCHELSTOWN

The Fé13 lads made the trip north to play Mitchelstown on Wednesday August 25th in what was a delayed fixture of the P2 football league. Unfortunately, the referee failed to show for this match so it was agreed that a coach from each club would take the whistle for one half. Thanks to Tom Casey for agreeing to referee the first half and for doing such a fine job at short notice. The match itself turned out to be a very close contest throughout. With scores hard to come by in the opening 30 minutes there was just a point between the teams at half time with Midleton leading 0-05 to 0-04. Things got even tighter in the closing quarter with the two sides level on 1-06 each, with Max Murphy getting the goal. In the end, Midleton’s stronger substitutes made the difference with Ewan Murphy coming on to score a very well taken goal. Dara Birdthistle grabbed the third goal for the last score of the match. This was a tough contest and a very hard fought victory for the lads. The final score was Midleton 3-07 to Mitchelstown 1-06. The panel for the match was: Bradley O’Brien, Fionn Bohan, Jason Morley, Rian Casey, Harry Waterman, Cuan Twomey, Shane O’Mahony, Senan Carroll, Max Murphy, Dara Birdthistle, Darragh Mullins, James O’Meara, Sean Gregory, Cian Lawton (captain), Michael Allegrini, Ruairi O’Riordan, Patrick O’Dowd, Donnacha Horgan, David Kelly, Scott Dunlea, Ewan Murphy, James Carey,Michael Barrett.

The scores continued with further goals from Patrick O’Dowd and James Carey giving a half time score of Midleton 5-05 to Douglas 0-05. The lads continued to play some excellent hurling in the second half and ran out comfortable winners in the end on a final score of Midleton 5-12 to Douglas 0-08. The panel for the match was: Michael Allegrini, Rian Casey, Jason Morley, Patrick Collins, Harry Waterman, Cuan Twomey, Fionn Bohan, Luke Bamber, James O’Meara, David Kelly, Patrick O’Dowd, Dara Birdthistle, Sean Gregory, James Carey, Jamie O’Donovan, Riain McCormack, Ciaran Kelly, Finn Cahill.
