JUVENILES

FÉ8 BLITZ

Our Fé8s hosted a blitz in glorious sunshine in the resplendent Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday morning. Carrigtwohill and Bishopstown were our visitors and a wonderful morning's hurling was enjoyed by all. Thanks to everyone who made it such a great success and of course the young Magpies who played their hearts out.

FÉ10

Our Fé10s travelled to Bride Rovers to take on the home side on Saturday and a great morning was had by all.

FÉ11

Our Fé11s had a brilliant morning of hurling when they hosted Carrigaline at a sun-drenched Park South on Saturday morning.

Below: Pictured are the victorious Sciath na Scoil Fé11 players. Left to right: Sean Barry (Gaelscoile), Daniel Crean, Mason Richards, Conor Grant, Shay Tobin Burke, Conor Flynn, Jack Flynn, Charlie Kenneally (all CBS)
Best of luck also to Ben Fitzgerald and Jack McSweeney who will be playing for Saleen in their upcoming final.

FÉ13

Our Fé13 hurlers took on Sarsfields at Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday last and the Magpies came away with a great win on a final score of 6-20 to 1-9. The players and management would also like to say a massive thank you to Oaklodge Nursing Home for our new set of jerseys.

FÉ14 P2 HURLING CHAMPIONSHIP V GLEN ROVERS

The first round of the eagerly awaited Fé14 hurling championship saw the visit of Glen Rovers to Clonmult Memorial Park on Wednesday last. An early goal by Shane O'Mahony meant that the teams were level midway through the first-half with the lads battling well against their city counterparts. However Glen Rovers finished the first-half stronger with the half-time score reading Midleton 1-3 Glen Rovers 2-8.

Credit to Midleton though who refused to give up and holding Glen Rovers to just two points in the entire second-half. However we just couldn’t get the scores on the night to narrow the gap. The final score was Midleton 1-6 Glen Rovers 2-10.

Definite signs of improvement for this team as they now face into the semi-final of the hurling shield next Wednesday against Kiltha Og in Dungourney.

MIDLETON: Michael Allegrini, Rian Casey, Jason Morley, Cuan Twomey, Jack Walsh, Senan Carroll (captain), Scott Dunlea, Cian Lawton, Harry Waterman, Patrick O’Dowd, Max Murphy, Ruairi O’Riordan, Darragh Mullins, Shane O’Mahony, James Carey, Ewan Murphy, Sean Gregory, Patrick Collins, Adam Spillane, Bradley O’Brian, James O’Meara, Dara Birdthistle, Fionn Bohan

LADIES FOOTBALL

UNDER 12

A busy week for our U12 group saw us play home and away in both of their leagues.

Last Wednesday it was our first time to travel and play against Cobh (above). A slow start for our girls saw us going in at half time a few points behind. What we thought would be a tough second half for us playing into the wind and the sun, the girls fought for every ball and secured the scores we needed for another win.

On Monday evening we welcomed Glanmire to Ballinacurra (below). This was another tough encounter but once again the girls battled hard. Although we did not get the win this time the girls showed fierce determination and played their best. We will take the Bank Holiday off and details of our next fixture against Erin’s Own will be sent via text.

UNDER 14

Our U14A team travelled to Aghada last Sunday. It was a very competitive game throughout and there was some epic saves by both sides that could have made the score line very different. We are delighted with the win. Well done girls. Congratulations to our coach Kevin who had a significant birthday and the girls were only too happy to show him their fine singing voices.

TRAINING

Training details for the coming week will be sent by text to all groups.
