Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - September 1

01 September, 2022

It's a massive week for our underage teams with two teams in P1 Cup County Championship semi-finals and one in a county final. This is testament to the great work that's being put in at juvenile level in our club and hopefully we'll have a very successful week on all fronts.


Our Fé15s were the first of these three teams into the breach when they travelled to the Mardyke last night (Wednesday, August 31) to take on Inniscarra in their P1 County Championship Semi-final. 

There was nothing between the teams in the opening quarter, after wich an Inniscarra goal saw the Muskerry men lead by a single point (1-4 to 0-6). Midleton upped the ante in the second quarter and two goals by full-forward, Mikey Pedley, saw the young Magpies lead at the half-time whistle by a goal on a scoreline of 2-7 to 1-7.

The third quarter was all Midleton and with Peter Barrett leading the way, the Magpies oustscored Inniscarra seven to one to lead by 2-14 to 1-8 at the three quarter mark. 

With Midleton failing to score for over ten minutes Inniscarra crept back into the contest by it was the Magpies who finished strongest with Mikely Pedley claiming his hat-trick as Midleton pushed on for an excellent 3-17 to 1-12 victory. 

Well done lads on a great win. Next up is a county final in two weeks against East Cork neighbours Sarsfields, who beat Douglas by a point in the other semi-final.

MIDLETON: Conor Finn, Max Murphy, Lochlann Stewart, Eoin Ahern, Rian O'Driscoll, Matthew McSweeney, Darragh Cronin, Sean Crowley, Cian Lawton, Josh Hogan, Josh Foley, Nicholas Coughlan, Cian Stack, Mikey Pedley, Peter Barrett. Sub used: Senan Carroll.


Next up in county semi-final action are our Fé17s. After great wins, in their last two games, over Sarsfields and Valley Rovers, our Fé17s are in P1 Hurling Championship semi-final action on Friday night in the Mardyke at 8.15pm when they take on Ballincollig. Please come out and support the lads if you can at all. Best of luck to all involved.


Then on Saturday, we have a county fnal as our Fé13 lads travel to the 4G pitch at Pairc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday to take on Ballincollig in the P1 County Hurling Championship Final at 1.30pm. Best of luck boys and hopefully there will be a huge Magpies following to cheer you on.

Hard luck to the Fe13 lads who lost narrowly to Douglas at the weekend in the Rebel Og football league, .



On Saturday morning last our young Magpies travelled to Youghal for a hurling blitz. It was an action packed morning, where we fielded four teams and each team played four games. Our Magpies again played very tough and competitive matches against Sars.  



Our lads hosted Glanmire in Football on Saturday. Our players were outstanding on the day and got some great scores throughout each of their games. Well done lads. Keep up the good work.



Our Fè16 footballers lost out in the U-16 Football League Final in Togher on Sunday morning against a very impressive St. Finbarrs team. In the end the home side ran out 5-9 to 1-5 winners. Well done lads for a great effort in getting to the final. 



The Davy Hogan Street Leagues are up and running and have been a great success so far. Well done to all involved. See below for the latest standings.

The fifth round and the final will take place on Saturday, September 10, starting at 10am. 



Saturday was a very busy day for Midleton players pulling on the red of Cork with no less than three inter-county juvenile competitions taking place and we had players in each. Which is great going.
Our Fé14 players Senan Carroll, Max Murphy and Cian Lawton all played on the same Cork team at the famous Tony Forrsital Tournament in Waterford City, while their Midleton team-mate, Shane O'Mahony, was on the Cork team that emerged victorious in the Sonny Walsh Cup, also in Waterford City (pictured above).
Our Fé15s, Darragh Cronin, Matthew McSweeney, Josh Hogan, Peter Barrett, Mikey Pedley and Josh Foley all represented Cork at the Arrabawn Tournament played at Borrisoleigh in County Tipperary (pictured below), while Fé16 players Carthaigh Cronin and Eoghan Fraser lined out for the Cork U-16s. 
Well done lads for doing yourselves, you club and your families proud.



The first of our three adult teams in championship action last weekend were the intermediate team against Blackrock in Carrigtwohill on Saturday. Showing four changes from the side that drew with Lisgoold in the previous round, this was another excellent display by a very young side who have put in a wonderful effort all year.
At half-time we trailed by a single point, 0-13 to 1-9, but an excellent second-half, with both sides going at it hell for leather, with a quarter-final spot on the line, saw us just edge over the line by a single point in the end. Well done to all involved.
After two local derbies alread (against Aghada and Lisgoold) it's another one up next, in the quarter-finals, as we face neighbours Dungourney in Carrigtwohill on Friday week (September 9) at 7.30pm.
Scorers: M. Finn 1-12 (1-10F), P. Connaughton 1-3, C. Crowley 0-2, T. Roche, D. Cremin and L. Coughlan 0-1 each. 
MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, Cormac O'Brien, Cian Murray, Cathal Gunning, Gavin Reddy James Nagle, Alan Power, Leslie Coughlan, Mikey Finn, Tiarnan Roche, Gary Carroll, Cian Crowley, Paul Connaughton, David Cremin, Christian Daly.

Unfortunately our reign as Cork County senior champions came to an end (for now) on Sunday last in Fermoy as we lost out to a physical and hungry Kanturk side in a thrilling game.
There was very little in this game from the start and the sides were tied at 0-6 each after 20 minutes. The opening goal of the game, for Kanturk, saw them lead by 1-9 to 0-7 with 27 minutes on the clock and that lead was extended to six by the midway point as we trailed by 1-11 to 0-8 at the half-time break.
Goals from Pa White and Ross O'Regan pulled us right back into the game and with 20 to go we trailed by two     (1-14 to 2-9).

A Sam Quirke green flag and a quick point from Conor Lehane go into a four point lead inside the final ten minutes. But back came Kanturk with a goal and a couple of points before we were redcuced to 14 after a straight red card for Brion Saunderson and try as we did to find a late winning score, that would have taken us through, we lost out by a single point in the end and our hopes of making the quarter-finals were dashed by the fact that Newtownshandrum had a comfortable win over Douglas in the other game in the group. 
A disappointing end to our title defence but thanks to all the players, management and backroom teams who put in a massive effort all year.

Scorers: Midleton: C Lehane (0-9, 0-8 frees); P White, R O’Regan (1-1 each); S Quirke (1-0); P Haughney (0-2); S O’Leary Hayes, C Beausang (0-1 each).
MIDLETON: Brion Saunderson; Eoin Moloney, Luke Dineen, Seanaidh Smyth; Sean O’Leary Hayes, Tommy O’Connell, Sean O’Sullivan; Paul Haughney, Sam Quirke; Aaaron Mulcahy, Ross O’Regan, Pa White; Conor Lehane, Cormac Beausang, Luke O’Farrell. Subs: Ciarmhac Smyth for Mulcahy (HT); Mikey Finn for White (60, inj); Alan Power for Haughney (62).


After an opening round win over Carrigtwohill and down a few players from that game, this was always going to be a tough battle against a Cobh side that had already beaten defending champions St. Itas in round one and so it proved. At half-time we trailed by a goal on a score of 0-9 to 0-6. But we never gave up and an excellent second-half display saw us reach the final whistle with a deserved share of the spoils, 0-14 to 0-11.
In the next round we play Sarsfields on Saturday week (September 10) at 4pm and the following week (September 17) we face reigning champions, St. Itas at 3pm. Venues for both these games are yet to be confirmed. More next week.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Colin Sunderland, Charlie Walsh, Dan O’Sullivan, Billy O’Shea (0-1), Aidan Ryan (0-2), Evan McCarthy, Dan Cagney (0-1), Cathal Beausang, Padraig O’Shea, Rory Hartnett, Conor Fitzgerald (0-9, 0-8F), John Keane (0-1), Mike Abbernethy. Sub used: Evan Kelly for Cathal Beausang.



On Monday night we hosted Bride Rovers in our final division 4 hurling league game for 2022. In a high scoring encounter, we won by two points on a score line of 5-13 to 2-20. The management team just want to thank everyone who was able to give their time and play throughout the year. Our ability to always get fifteen players out shows how great a club we have and will continue to be. This grade has always allowed players to develop and get game time in, so that they can progress further up the grades. Best of luck to Bride Rovers in their upcoming championship.


Hard luck to our U12 girls who put up a great performance against a very strong Douglas team on Saturday last. You all put in a great effort and kept going till the final whistle. We play Clonakility this Saturday in Clonmult Memorial Park. 



Another massive win for our Minor Ladies in Clonmult Memorial Park on Monday evening against Rockbán. Well done to all 26 girls who played their part. A fantastic effort by the players and management. Fianl score: Midleton 5-9 Rockbán 0-7. Next up is Lisgoold next Monday evening.


Well done to our Junior 1 team who got their championship campaign off to a great start with a win over Watergrasshill. Final score: Midleton 1-15 Watergrasshill 0-5. 
A perfect late summer's evening saw Midleton ladies off to a perfect start against the ladies from Watergrasshill. Conceding the first score of the game might lead one to believe that this could be nip and tuck but truth be told it was nothing of the sort. Sadhbh Beausang steadied the ship with a quick equaliser and then the Midleton ladies took over. Clearly a more cohesive unit going forward with great support play and running off the ball especially from the two Lucys, Wallace and Keneally, who caused constant problems for the ladies from the ‘Hill. Indeed a few misses could have seen Midleton further in front. At the back Leah Hogan was suffocating her marker. A brilliant block on 20 minutes showed how much the ‘Hill had to work for everything. Right beside her Claudia Kearney was mopping up everything. Midleton so far have scored some great points at ease with the outside of the boot and with great tactical support from sideline from Brian, Permy and Co. (as Pat Kelly watches on). Only one team playing ffootball here. HT Midleton 0-10 Watergrasshill 0-3.
The second-half started as the first ended one team in control. Orlagh Farmer was the cause of much dejection for Watergrasshill starting skillfully most of Midleton’s attacking and worked well with sub Saoirse Tagney who never stopped running. From midfield Molly Beausang and Abby Quirke never stopped their menacing attacks into the ‘Hill defence they had no answer really and with player of the match Lucy Keaneally attracting two or three Hill defenders at a time Midleton could take great advantage. There will be bigger challenges for this team but a complete team performance will make others sit up and take notice. 



Our Fè14 Camogie team finally got their championship campaign up and running against Ballincollig in Park South on Monday evening last. Playing in the Premier division this year the girls have put in a serious amount of preparation and were really looking forward to getting started. The nerves took a while to settle though with Ballincollig registering the first score of the game with a fine goal from play. There was no panic from the girls however as the defence worked extremely hard to turn over the ball and supply the forwards who were now getting into their rhythm. With all the forwards getting on the score sheet, a fantastic achievement in itself, the girls finished the half in front and maintained this performance in the second-half. A fantastic first Championship win for this group sets them up nicely for the next round with a visit from St Finbarrs next Wednesday. Well done girls! You are a pleasure to work with and we are all very proud of you…Keep up the hard work.



Our Fé16 girls played a very competitive and physical game against Enniskeane during the week. Enniskeane got a quick goal but Midleton came back fighting. Each and every Midleton girl performed from start to finish. A great start to our championship campaign. A huge thank you to all girls for travelling. Thanks to Enniskeane for hosting and providing refreshments. Well done to Laura Goulding who will captain Midleton U-16 for Championship. Best of luck to Enniskeane going forward.



Midleton Camogie had four girls with the Cork Development Squad this year from the U-14 team. They played their last matches of the season in Thurles. We are extremely proud of them all and delighted they can bring their experiences back to their club for championship. Well done girls a fantastic achievement.



Our first ever Camogie Street leagues will commence this Friday, September 2, and excitement is at an absolute high amongst the groups competing. Best of luck to all. These are the fixtures:
