We received a very limited number of stand tickets so we did a draw and these were the lucky names that came out of the hat.  

 

IN THE RED OF CORK

It was a great week for Cork underage teams and Midleton players played key roles.

On Tuesday night the Cork minors were too strong for Limerick in Pairc Uí Chaoimh as the young Rebels ran out convincing winners on a scoreline of 4-21 to 2-14. Our own Tadhg O’Leary Hayes put in a great shift at right corner back. Well done Tadhg. Cork are now into the semi-finals on May 3 in Cork.

On Wednesday night the Cork U-20s finished strongly to secure a very hard-fought 1-19 to 1-17 win over Clare in Sixmilebridge. Brion Saunderson lined out in goals and Ciarmhac Smyth was left-corner-back. David Cremin was also on the extended panel. Well done lads. Next up is a clash with Limerick in Pairc Uí Rinn on Wednesday night next (April 20) at 7pm.

 

LADIES FOOTBALL

JUNIOR COUNTY LEAGUE 

On Monday evening our second Junior Team travelled to St Finbarrs for their first league game of the season. In awful conditions the girls started out the stronger of the two teams. It was a fantastic game of football to watch with some brilliant passing of the ball. Great credit is due to the management who gave every player game time and to the ladies who gave great support to each other. Final score Midleton 5-11 St Finbarrs 3-5.

AZZURI JERSEY COMPETITION 

We are calling on our members for their help in an Instagram competition which will take place on April 26th. Midleton Ladies Football will need votes to be in with a chance to win a set of Jerseys for our club. Details will be posted on our Instagram page nearer the time of the competition.

Both sides battled to the very end.

FE14 P2 FOOTBALL V ST. MICHAEL’S 

The first competitive Fé14 football match of 2022 was the visit of St. Michael’s to Clonmult Memorial Park. It was no joke playing against a stiff breeze in the opening half, and at half time there was only a couple of scores in it, the score board reading 1-3 to 0-2 to Midleton. However, after the resumption the lads powered with an excellent display, and in the end emerged victorious on a final score line of 7-7 to 0-6. The goals on the night were scored by Darragh Mullins, Scott Dunlea and Michael Allegrini with some excellent finishing on display.

Fé14 P1 HURLING V DOUGLAS 

The second competitive Fé14 hurling match of 2022 was a trip to Douglas in the P1 league. A well taken goal early on from James Carey set the tone for the evening with the lads playing some good hurling in the opening half against a slight breeze. However, Douglas were never that far off and despite a second goal by Ewan Murphy, there was only three points in it at half time, Douglas 0-7 Midleton 2-4. However, a strong second half performance by the lads, with another goal by Ewan Murphy meant that the lads secured a well-deserved first victory in the P1 grade this year on a final score of Douglas 0-12 to Midleton 3-13.
