LADIES FOOTBALL

JUNIOR A LEAGUE

Our Junior Ladies were back in action on Thursday last when they took on Watergrasshill in Park South. Great numbers once again turned out on a cool but dry evening. Final score was Midleton 1-11 WGH 1-6.

Up next is our 2nd Junior team who take on Bandon in Ballinacurra this Sunday at 11.30am.

FÉILE 2022

This year’s Football Féile took place in Rockbán Gaa Club. As we won the Féile in the B grade in 2021 we were promoted to the A grade for this year. Our round robin group stages saw us up against Rockbán and Inch. Having won both of these games we qualified for the semi-final against Glanmire. After 15 minutes a side and a great come back by Midleton nothing could divide the teams at full time so it went to extra-time. A goal in the dying seconds saw Midleton win by a single point.

The Féile final saw us up against Erin’s Own. It was a tough ask for the girls as they had to play straight after their semi-final game but they took to the pitch in great spirits. Erin’s Own took an early lead as the tiredness started to show with our girls but great credit is due to them all as they continued to fight for every ball and never gave up. Unfortunately, Erin’s Own proved too strong for us on the day. Final score was Midleton 1-1 Erin’s Own 4-4.

As a club we are delighted with all of our girls who are a great credit to themselves and their Families. They showed great support to each other and great respect to their mentors on the day. They have a wonderful attitude and most importantly the girls had great fun on the day. All in all, they played 120 minutes of football on the day.

Congratulations to three of our panel members Julie Murphy, Kate Saunderson and Caoilinn Fraser (pictured below) who were selected for the Féile All Star team. These girls were picked for their performances on the day, their attitude towards their mentors and teammates on and off the pitch.

Many thanks to the parents for their tremendous support on the day.

As they reached divisional final the girls will now go on and represent the Club in the County Féile on May 2. Details to be confirmed.

MIDELTON PANEL: Kate Saunderson (captain), Lilly Kelly, Kate O Sullivan, Ava McAuliffe, Shelia O'Leary Hayes, Kate Griffin, Sorcha Cronin, Amy Keeshan, Lilly Shields, Sophie Walsh, Faye Dunlea, Caoilinn Fraser, Julie Murphy, Lucy Murphy, Ciara Murphy, Robyn Keating, Emma Keeshan, Chloe Corby, Cara Pyne, Rebecca Ryan, Roisin McManus, Hannah O'Brien, Cáit O'Leary Hayes.

Mentors: Donnacha Tagney, Ber Kelly, Gillian Murphy, Gráinne O’Brien, Kevin Keeshan, Nicole Keeshan.

 

 

CAMOGIE

FE 15 FÉILE 2022

Well done to our Féile team and their management who took part in Féile 2022 over the weekend. Our group was hosted by Ballncollig Camogie Club.

Our first match was against Ballinora where we just missed out on a win. In our next match we met Ballinhassig Camogie and our final game took place against our hosts Ballincollig Camogie . Unfortunately Lady Luck was not on our side even with all our girls giving their all and putting their best efforts in. We were super proud of all the girls on the day a special word of congratulations to our Féile captains, Kate Griffin (top pic) Amy Keeshan (lmiddle pic), Cara Foley (bottom pic). 

 

MINOR LEAGUE V SARSFIELDS 2

Congratulations to our Minor team (pictured below) on another win in their league campaign. We took on Sarsfields Camogie this time around at home in Clonmult Memorial Park last night Friday. Well done to each and every girl and to their management team. Next up is another home game on tonight (Thursday 21st April) at Ballinacurra GAA where we will go up against Enniskeane.

 

JUNIOR LEAGUE

MIDLETON 0-10 BRIDE ROVERS 0-9

We travelled to Rathcormac for our first league outing of the season. After a tough encounter we came out one point winners.

After a great start which saw us race into a six points to one lead with our scores coming from Sadhbh Beausang, Rebecca Cassidy and Jodie Keegan O’Connell (all from play) and Vivienne Gleeson from frees.

Bride Rovers fought back well to narrow our lead to 0-6 to 0-4 at half-time.

The second-half again proved very tight  - but great work from all of our backs, especially Yvonne Abernethy, Jade Bradley and Leah Hogan, and the ever consistent Jill Connaughton in goals kept Bride Rovers in check and even though we won by the minimum a little more composure in front of goal would have seen us win with a bit to spare.

Nonetheless excellent commitment shown by all in difficult conditions and a great start to our league campaign. Well done all.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Megan Kelly, Jade Bradley, Leah Hogan, Roisin O’Callaghan, Yvonne Abernethy, Aoife Fitzgerald, Lucy Wallis , Vivienne Gleeson (0-5f), Emma O’Sullivan, Sadhbh Beausang(0-3), Abbie Foley, Ryanna Power, Rebecca Cassidy (0-1), Jodie Keegan O’Connell (0-1). Mischa Daly-Harkin, Rachel Ryan, Jade Fitzgerald.

 

 

JUVENILES

FE12

A busy bank holiday weekend for the Fé12 boys saw both teams play a challenge game (hurling) away to Carraigaline on Saturday.

Both results went our way. Thanks Carrigaline for hosting us.

On Monday evening then saw the Fé12 P2 team begin their Rebel og group 2 East football league away to St Michaels (pictured above). A very well contested match saw Midleton come away with a win, a great start to the league. Midleton 1-10 St Michaels 2-5.

 

FE15 FÉILE

On Saturday morning last we travelled to Douglas for the hurling Féile. We were pitted against Sars, Inniscarra and Douglas. Overall it was a great morning’s hurling. We came up short in our three games. All games were closely fought to the end, but with the short format you need a bit of luck also. This does not reflect the effort that was put in on the day. We have a hugely committed bunch of players and no doubt this will stand to us as the year goes on. A big thank you our supporters, whose encouragement on the day was a huge help. Thanks also to our sponsors Clare Fox at Sherry Fitzgerald O’Donovan Midleton and to John Hogan of Glantreo for kitting out the boys for the day’s hurling.

Results from the day:

Midleton 0-5 Sarsfields 0-7

Midleton 0-6 Douglas 2-4

Midleton 0-3 Inniscarra 0-5

MIDLETON – Ryan Fitzsimmons, Diarmud Lester, Joey Moran, Eoin Hurley, Shane O’Mahony, Darragh Cronin, Miah McGrath, Jake Kirby, Daniel Donovan, Lochlann Stewart, Cian Stack, Cian Fitzgerald, Josh Foley, Matthew McSweeney, Tomas Geary, Rian O’Driscoll, Mikey Pedley, Cian Lawton, Eoin Ahern (Captain), Nicky Coughlan, Luke Riordan, Peter Barrett, Conor Finn, Josh Hogan, Rory Hynes, Sean Crowley, Ben Troy, Tiago Fleming, Noah Cahill.
