LADIES FOOTBALL

EAST CORK CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to our Minor Ladies Football team who defeated Inch Rovers in a very sporting game to win the East Cork League on Wendnesday night.

Under very heavy conditions the girls dug deep from start to finish with a great team performance from one to 25. A great testament to the management saw that every girl got game time. Captain Spohie McCarthy Keane (pictured above) was presented with the cup by referee Cathal McAllister. There is no rest time for this great team who will travel early on Saturday morning to play Donoughmore in the Cork County semi-final in Donoughmore. We wish you all the very best of luck.

 

EAST CORK CHAMPIONSHIP

Best of luck to our U-16 ladies who will play Youghal on Sunday in Clonmult Memorial Park at 3.30pm in their East Cork Championship. Please come along and show your support for this team. 

 

THANKS COACHES

Our U-8/10/12 and 14 girls are all now finished for the year. Many thanks to all the hard working coaches who give very generously of their time to ensure the smooth running of our club. Enjoy the well earned break. 

 

ADULT CLUB

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The Midleton GAA Club AGM will take place on this coming Wednesday, November 23 at 7.30pm. All members are asked to attend.

 

JUNIOR C FOOTBALL

On Saturday last we hosted Glanmire in Clonmult Memorial Park in the East Cork semi-final. On the day we had 23 players togged out to play which was excellent. We played really well in the first-half and playing with the breeze into the train station end we had some superb scores, which were the result of some excellent passing and movement. Unfortunately, we were unable to convert a couple of excellent goal scoring opportunities. The half time score read Midleton 1-9 Glanmire 1-5.

On the changeover we owned the ball for the first ten minutes but were not rewarded on the scoreboard. At this point Glanmire hit a purple patch and took some excellent scores to run out winners on a score line of Glanmire 4-8 to Midleton 1-13. 
A huge thanks to all the players on what has been a brilliant effort throughout the year. 

MIDLETON SQUAD: Padraig Dunlea, Jack McKay, Sean Corcoran, Daniel Wathen, Colin Sunderland, Barry Fitzgerald, Brendan Ferriter, Brion Saunderson, Evan McCarthy, Dan O’Sullivan, Kieran Denihan, Adam Faye, Kieran Lambert, Micheál Keohane and Andy Rea. Substitutes: Kieran Mulcahy, Gavin Reddy, Jan Haandrikman, Coleman Quinn, Davy O’Brien, Eoin Ferriter, Leonard Saunderson and Jerome Curtin.

Also, we would like to thank all the club volunteers who manage and take care of our pitches. It is really appreciated by all our players and on Saturday Clonmult was in superb condition, especially considering the time of year.
