Fe 8
Twenty Four of Midleton’s finest  Fe 8 Hurlers traveled to Riverstown on Saturday 1st October. Conditions were near perfect for the match-up between Midleton and Sarsfield’s. Both sides split their panels into three, so that meant three games running in parallel across the carpet like pitch that is Sar’s home venue. There was time for two full games for each team and luckily the rain held off for the duration of all games. All Midleton hurlers performed to an exceptionally high standard in a morning of very competitive matches. This panel of hurlers have played a lot of matches over the last number of weeks and their discipline, dedication and stick work has been nothing short of amazing. Finally I would once again like to thank all of the supporters and team coaches who help with these games.
Training continues at Midleton College All-weather pitch;  Thursday evenings 6pm-7pm; Would all players please bring 2 euro to help pay for the rent of the pitch.
