FÉ14S

Alfie Hennessy receiving the Fé14 P2 Football League Cup on Monday night.

It was another busy schedule of football games for the panel with a number of games for both teams, but despite the demands being put on the players, they approached the games with their usual positive attitude and work rate.

P2 League Semi Final vs. Bishopstown

Played in Park South the players reaped the rewards for efforts they have been making since the start of the year, with some great football on show the depth of the panel was on show with a number of players putting in fine performances across the field, while the scoreboard did not reflect the tough game that it was the result meant that the panel qualified for the P2 League Final.

Football League Game vs. Ballincollig

Played in Clonmult Memorial Park on a fine day for football, the 16 players who were available to play the game put in another fine display of football to extend their run of positive results in what was their most stern test to date in the competition, while holding a slender lead at half time the panel pushed on in the second half ensuring that the result was secured with their usual hard graft, supporting teamwork and commitment to each other that they have shown in every game played this year so far.

P2 League Final vs. Nemo Rangers 

The Midleton panel which won the Fé14 P2 Football League Cup on Monday night. Below: celebration time.

The panel travelled to a well-presented Mayfield pitch on Monday evening to play Nemo Rangers in the League Final, a game that we knew was going to be test for the group following a close group game earlier in the campaign. The game did not disappoint and showed to all in attendance that there is some quality young footballers being produced by clubs around the county.

It took our players some time to settle into the game and get to grips with the free-flowing game that Nemo Rangers were playing along with the aid of the elements that were in their favour during the first half, and despite the half-time deficit of seven points there was no hint of panic with the players.

Supported by their team-mates on the sideline the players set about their task and worked together to firstly reduce the deficit and after 47 minutes into the game to take the lead for the first time, a sign of the positive approach taken by all the players on the panel, they refused to yield when as expected Nemo Rangers fought back at them to regain the lead, the lads dug deep once more and restored their lead to emerge with a three point win.

Alfie Hennessy accepted the League Cup on behalf of all of the players and the back and forth nature of the game will remain an outstanding memory for all those who were present to witness the game.

We would like to thank Mayfield for the use of their facilities on the night, Andrew Dorgan for refereeing the game along with his umpires and Rebel Og for the smooth organising of the competition.

MIDLETON PANEL: Aaron Murphy, Adam Groarke, Alex Molumby, Alfie Hennessy, Braden Dunlea, Breaninn O Dalaigh, Charlie Cahill, Charlie McCarthy, Cian Hogan; Ciaran Kelly, Ciaran O’Brien, Daire Crowley, Donncha Butler, Ethan Foley, Finn Cahill, Finn Murray, Jack Cahill, Jack Sweeney, John O’Sullivan, Josh Quill, Liam Walsh, Manus Stewart, Patrick O’Brien, Patrick Spellman, Peadar Egan, Rian McCormack, Robin O’Brien, Rory Nolan.

COMHALTAS OPEN NIGHT

Don't miss a great night in our club house on Tuesday next, May 30 at 7pm.

 

FIELD WORKS

We have just completed our annual pitch programme thanks to all our teams for their co-operation.

Thanks to Stephen Forrest and his team at Turftech for the high quality of their sanding and shockwaving work at Park South, this is essential for improving drainage and relieving soil compaction.
Thanks to Liam Ryan for fertilising all of the pitches recently, to Denis McSweeney for his continued excellence in maintaining our pitches not forgetting our Community Employment Scheme staff who also help to keep our playing pitches and premises in Clonmult in excellent condition throughout the year.
In the coming weeks we will be extending the ball stop nets at the Car Park end of Park South, strengthening the Ball net poles in St Colmans, painting the goalposts and replacing the fencing on the stand side in Clonmult Memorial Park.

Key to all this work taking place is our members continued support of our various fundraising events throughout the year which we are so grateful for.

Unfortunately Dog walking continues to be an issue particularly at Park South, we would appeal to all our members to lead by example and refrain from this and to request this support also from any visiting teams.

 

PLEASE PLAY YOUR PART

Unfortunately there has been a rise in the amount of dogs being walked in Park South recently, especially during matches and training sessions. Please spread the word that only assistance dogs are permitted in both of our club grounds at Park South and Clonmult Memorial Park. 

Please do not bring single-use plastic bottles to either Park South or Clonmult Memorial Park.
Please put your rubbish in a bin or bag and please bring your gear home with you.
And always be aware of the open water surrounding the pitches in Park South.
If you are a coach, please pass on these simple messages to players and parents.
All members are asked to respect referees and their officials at all times.
Also if you are a coach, last person out locks the gate, toilet and container.

 

CONDOLENCES

Everyone at Midleton GAA would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Esther and all the family and friends of Brendan Barry of Carrigtwohill. Brendan for many years was an excellent videographer and because of him we have brilliant footage of many our greatest days from the past such as county finals and our All-Ireland Final win in 1988. He and Esther were always a pleasure to deal with. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
