Our Fe 21 Footballers enjoyed a thoroughly deserved five pouint victory over Millstreet in the County quarter final on Monday evening last in Castletownroche. Over the course of the hur Midleton were very strong physically and took the gae to our opponents. In the first half a Cormac Walsh goal ensured we led by two points at half time on a 1-04 to 0-05 scoreline. In the second half a goal from a penalty by Stephen Moore was responded to immediately by an excellent goal by Millstreet. However in the last ten inutes Midleton added some four fine points to see us over the line and into a county semi final.

Fe 21 Football Semi Final
Midleton 1-05 O’Donovan Rossa 1-14
Midleton Fe 21 Footballers were back in Championship action on Sunday last when the played O’Donovan Rossa in the county semi final at Carrigadrohid in ideal conditions. Midleton got off to a fine start and were leading 1-01 to 0-03 after ten minutes. However where we had the physical and fitness advantage in our quarter final win over Millstreet on this occasion were were matched in these aspects of the game. Our opponents were a well drilled side who footballing skills were evident and we were struggled to contain despite the whole heated commitment of all our players. It was all one way traffic for the second quarter as our opponents added on five more points without reply to lead 0-08 to 1-01 at half time. Though we had more of the possession in the second half we found scores hard to come by as Skibbereen build their tally. We were within touching distance until the last couple of minutes when the Skibbereen men goaled to seal their well derserved victory. It has been a fine achievement by the lads and their mentors to secure their first East Cork A grade title after so  many years and to reach a county semi final.

VHI Cúl Camp
No sooner than our Feile Peil American visitors had gone home - it was time to look ahead to the 2011 VHI Cúl Camp.
There was some concern this year that the country’s economic issues would mean reduced numbers. However we were pleasantly surprised to find that our numbers were up on last year. Over 120 kids registered for what turned out to be a fantastic week. The only possible damper was a heavy downfall of rain on Wednesday morning. This however was quickly overcome by using the indoor ball alley for the kids up to Fe 8 level. All the other kids were deemed to be waterproof and went out on the pitch.
We were fortunate to have some great coaches for the week including: Conor Lehane, Philip O’Neill, Padraig O’Brien, Alwyn Kearney, Killian Burke and Cormac Walsh. The coaches not only got some great experience with their future coaching careers but also got some good autograph practice on the last day.
We were fortunate to have Cork footballers Paddy Kelly and Ciaran Sheehan attend on Friday to give the kids some words of advice on both playing and practice issues.
This annual event is a great success due to great planning and attention to detail prior to the camp starting. It would not achieve such high standards without the hard work of its organisers. Many thanks go to the Event Manager - Jim O’Sullivan and his PA – Mary Quinn. Also thanks to all the kids who turned up and played their hearts out and their parents who brought them.
Here’s looking forward to next year.
