Our Fé19s travelled to Ballygarvan on Sunday to take on Blackrock in the semi-final of the first ever Premier 1 hurling championship at the age group. 
It was supposed to be a double header but the first game was called off after Glen Rovers gave Valley Rovers a walkover. 
After defeating Sarsfields in the previous round six weeks ago, Midleton came into this game with two big injury losses in Alex Quirke and Darragh McCarthy.
The opening quarter was very evenly contested at by the 16 minute mark the sides were level on 0-6 each. 
With Mikey Finn flying on the frees Midleton hit the front and they were boosted when midfielder Niall Corcoran scored a lovely goal to see the Magpies lead at the interval on a scoreline of 1-12 to 0-10.
I’m not sure what the management said to them at half-time but the men in black and white came out a different team for the second-half and an outstanding third quarter laid the foundations for this win.
There were just two second-half minutes on the clock when Tadhg O’Leary Hayes scored an excellent goal and this was followed by five points in a row without reply from David Cremin (2), Mikey Finn, the excellent Rory Hartnett and Brion Saunderson (one of his two white flags on the day).
With 15 minutes to play Midleton looked in a very commanding position on a scoreline of 2-18 to 1-12.
Another Blackrock goal brought the City men to within seven, 2-20 to 2-13, with seven minutes to play. 
As the game went deep into injury-time two late Blackrock goals made things a bit nervy for the sizeable Midleton support but at the final whistle emerged victorious on a final score of 2-23 to 4-14.
Midleton will take on Valley Rovers in the county final. Date and venue to be confirmed.

Scorers for Midleton: M Finn 0-11 (0-9 f, 0-1 65), N Corcoran, T O’Leary Hayes 1-0 each, R Hartnett, D Cremin 0-3 each, C Beausang, B Sanderson (0-1 f) 0-2 each, C Smith, E McCarthy 0-1 each.
MIDLETON: Brion Saunderson; Colin Sunderland, Brian O’Connell, Neil Fitzgerald; Liam McGrath, Ciarmhac Smith (Capt), Evan McCarthy; Mikey Finn, Niall Corcoran; Rory Hartnett, Stuart O’Connor, Tadhg O’Leary Hayes; Cathal Beausang, Phelim McGann, David Cremin. Subs: Tiarnán Roche for O’Connor (half-time), Alex Moloney for McGann (45), Adam Fay for O’Connell (53 inj), James O’Sullivan for Beausang (60), Evan Kelly for O’Leary Hayes (61).
Well done to all involved.


There's a huge weekend of hurling instore for our adult teams with our first three teams all in championship action. 
The intermediates will get the ball rolling on Saturday when they take on Blackrock in Carrigtwohill at 2pm. After a great performance from a very young team in their draw with Lisgoold they will be hoping to record their first win of the championship, which could be enough to see them through to the knockout stages.
Carrigtwohill have asked us to pass on that parking in the club grounds will be for players and mentors only.
Once again you must purchase tickets online in advance, no cash will be taken at the gate, the link for tickets for this game is below. Under 16s are free and don't need a ticket.
Then on Sunday at 4pm our senior hurlers travel to Fermoy to take on Kanturk in their third Co. SHC game. After a fine win over Newtown in round two they will be hoping to make it back to back wins and hopefully advance to the knockout stages.
This is the second game of a double header with Kilworth and Ballincolling playing in the PIHC at 2pm. Tickets must be pre-purchased at the link below. Under 16s are free and don't need a ticket.
There will be no parking in the Fermoy GAA grounds but parking will be available at Fermoy Rugby Club which is on the opposite side of the main road, across from the entrance to the GAA club.
Then on Sunday night our Junior A hurlers will take on Cobh at 7pm in Lisgoold. They will be hoping to build on their opening round win over Carrigtwohill in Aghada. Cash will be taken on the gate for this game and no tickets are needed in advance. 


Our Junior B hurlers played their second championship game of the campaign on Friday night against Cloyne's second team in Castlemartyr. 
Without the services of the Fé19s we were short a good few players from the previous round's win over Sars but we still put up an excellent performance before losing out in a very high scoring encounter on a final score of 5-11 to 3-11.
Our final group game is against Bride Rovers. Date and venue to be confirmed.
MIDLETON: Coran Swayne, Dan O'Sullivan, Adam Fay, Kieren Lambert, Dara Mooney, Alywn Kearney, Alan Power, Cormac O'Brien, Cian Murray, Mark O'Keeffe, Cillian Hurley, Ben O'Neill, Evan Kelly, Sean Corcoran, Eoghan Collins. Subs used: Andy Rea, Liam Kelly and James Condon. 



After an opening round defeat to Glen Rovers and a great win away to Sarsfield in round two, our minors came into Friday night's game with Valley Rovers in front of a big crowd in Clonmult Memorial Park knowing that they would more than likely have to win to have any chance of progressing to the semi-finals. 
This was a super game of hurling from start to finish between two evenly matched sides with nothing between them from the first to last whistles. 
A fine Cian Lambe goal helped us to a half-time lead of 1-8 to 0-7.
Back came Valley Rovers midway through the second-half and six points in a row saw them go into a 0-16 to 1-12 lead with team nearly out. 
James McSweeney hit a lovely free to draw us level and the calculators were out before centre-back Tadhg O'Leary Hayes popped up in the Valley's defence to score a great goal to send the Magpies supporters wild. 
The final whistle went soo after as Midleton won out on a final score of 2-13 to 0-16.
The other game in the group finished in a draw between Glen Rovers and Sarsfields, meaning that Midleton advanced as group winners and Valley Rovers went through as runners up.
We will now face Ballincollig in the semi-finals. Date and venue to be confirmed. 
Well done to all involved. 
MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Darragh Higgins, Niall Lang, Tomás Dunlea, Carthaigh Cronin, Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Alex Moloney, Cian Lambe, Fionn Kelly, Daniel Garde, Eoin Frazer, Evan McGrath, Darragh Egan, Eoin Higgins, James McSweeney.



Our Fé13s took on Carrigaline in Midleton on Saturday in brilliant conditions and in front of a big crowd in their County Semi-final. 
From the off Midleton were on their game and playing a lovely brand of hurling they were always going to run out very comfortable winners.
Next up is a county final meeting with Ballincollig on Saturday, September 3. Time and venue to be confirmed. 


Our Fé15s finised their P1 group stages campaign on Wednesday night at Clonmult Memorial Park against Sarsfields. Both teams were already qualified for the semi-finals but positions in the group had to be decided. 
Midleton started very strongly and raced into a ten point lead midway through the first-half. The lead was seven at the half-time whistle, 0-12 to 0-5, but Sars emerged a different team in the second-half and three goals saw them win out in the end on a final score of 3-13 to 0-18.
All this means that we now face Inniscarra in the semi-finals next Wednesday, August 31, at 6.45pm at a venue to be decided. Sars and Douglas will meet in the other semi-final.

Our Fé15 Division 4 team will also be in championship semi-final action next week as they will take on Douglas in Midleton on Thursday, September 1 at 6:30pm.



Our lads played Douglas in Hurling on Saturday last at Clonmult Memorial Park.

We had 30 players in attendance for this and all players played very well getting some good scores throughout each of there games.

We would like to thank Douglas Fé10s  for giving us a good game of hurling on the day and hopefully we will meet again soon.



A big ball week this week for the Fé12s.
First up was the Group 5 footballers away to Douglas (pictured above). 
A fantastic effort from the off, saw the boys take the well deserved win. 
Midleton 6-7 Douglas 2-2
Next up was Group one away to Bishopstown on the astro. A slow start into the wind saw us six points down at the break. A much better second half saw the lads back into the game and out in front on the score board, but a late (late) goal for Bishopstown meant the hosts took it by a point. 
Midleton 4-5 Bishopstown 3-9 (pictured below).
Well done all.

Our Fé12s were in action again, away to Fr. O'Neills for a friendly match on Wednesday last. The players played in ideal conditions. Well done to all the players who are improving with each game played. There was great defending and forward play with excellent determination from all the team. Thanks to our hosts, the referee and all the supporters. Well done to our U-12 Camogie Captain Orlaith.



Imokilly League: Midleton V Dungourney at Clonmult Memorial Park.

A great quarter-final display by all our girls. Midleton started very strong with some super  scores taken by all the forward line. Our two midfielders put in a fantastic  performance throughout the game. The back line were tenacious  throughout. Dungourney kept the pressure on right to final whistle, however, Midleton were to strong and came out worthy winners to get themselves a semi-final place against Sarsfields. Well done to our Captain Robyn Keating.

Following our victory against Dungourney, our Fé14 girls progressed to Imokilly U-15 final on Thursday evening with a fantastic victory over Sarsfields (pictured below). Given the fact we were four points down at one stage in the second-half our girls completely turned it around before winning by five points. A huge team performance and great confidence booster for all the players leading into Championship on Monday evening next. Well done to both girls and mentors.



Our minor girls had a great result as they squeezed past Blackrock 2-12 to 2-9 in an exciting encounter at home in Park South during the week. Well done girls, fantastic result.

We will post regular updates on our social media channels so please watch out during the week. This is a first for our Camogie Group to be holding such a competition, so come out next weekend to cheer on our girls.
