Senior Hurling League
On Friday 14th Midleton Senior Hurlers were in league action in Pairc Ui Rinn against Erins Own.

Midleton will now take on Newtown Shandrum in the semi final next Friday. Details to be confirmed. Well done lads.

Fe 16
In the Premier 2 Football championship we are played Clonakilty last Saturday in the CIT grounds in the second and lost out in the end by eight points.
After a slow start we settled very well and sourced some great goals to keep the game very even, at halftime the side were level. We began the second half with lots of possession near their goals but couldn’t produce the scores and paid dearly when they counter attacked each time and scored.
With five minutes to go there was only three points between the side but unfortunately they finished the stronger and ran out winners in the end.
Final Score Midleton 3.04 v Clonakilty 1.16
Team: Bryan Rossiter, Luke Dineen, Billy O Shea, Luke Morrissey, Kevin Rohan, Aaron Mc Evoy, Sean O Farrell, Patrice Tschmanga, Padriac Nagle, Eanna O Brien, Conan Finnegan, Imbiblio Bello, Robert Williams, Michael Abernethy & Calem Deady. Subs used Killian Lynch and Alan Stanton, others Shane Buckley, Conor Morgan & Josh Deady.

Fe 13
Following on from the long trek to Ballinspittle in our last outing our Fe-13 hurlers had a the very short trip to near neighbours Carrigtwohill on Sat last Oct 15th to take on the home team in the Semi-Final of the Premier 1 Championship. On a wet and cold evening our boys never reached the heights of performance seen in the previous 2 games of this championship and struggled to get scores on the board in the first despite having the bulk of possession and we went in at the break level on 1-2 apiece. With some positional changes made at second half we played a little better in the and with some fresh legs coming on during this half to add some urgency to our game we won in the end by 4-7 to 1-5 to book a place in the final v Sars.
This was tough test again for our lads and one that hopefully will serve them well in the final which is fixed for Sat next Oct 22nd in Carrigtwohill with a 4pm throw in.
Our Panel on the day was P O'Brien (capt), C Evans, A Daly, L Franklin, K Mulcahy, R McConville, S O'Leary, C Shanahan, G Manley, J Roche, D Mulcahy, R O'Reagan, C Power, C Daly, E Moloney, S O'Meara, T Abdullah, T O'Connell, J O'Dwyer, C O'Neill, S O'Brien, PJ Fitzgearld, R O'Donovan, K Daly.

Davie Hogan and James O’Brien Blitz’s
Fe10 & Fe12 Hurling Blitz – last Saturday we hosted our annual Dave Hogan & James O Brien hurling blitz’s with teams from Douglas, Blackrock, Dungarvan, Erins Own & Midleton competing, the Fe10 games were held in the CBS and the Fe12 in the main field.
The U10 games were played very successfully on the GO GAMES format in the CBS and many thanks Charlie Mc Allister and Michael Franklin who officiated at these games. Afterwards members of the O Brien family presented all the teams with their medals.
The U12 competition took place in the main pitch and we had some very exciting games well officiated by Cathal Mc Allister and Barry Day.
After the final Senan Gleeson and Jim O Brien representing both family’s presented the Cups to the victorious Douglas and Erins Own captains and also medals to all of the players.
A word of thanks to all the committee who helped arrange the Blitz, set up the fields, etc., a special thanks to Siobhan Dineen and all the ladies who helped out in the Hall and kitchen serving the food throughout the day, to the parents of our teams who contributed a fabulous array of sandwiches, cakes and biscuits which were very much appreciated and finally well done to all the players who represented their clubs and familys with pride and passion in all the games.

Fe 12
On Saturday the 15th of October at our GAA complex Midleton u 12 played host to Blackrock, Douglas, Dungarvan and Erins Own in the annual Davy Hogan  and James o Brien Hurling Blitz. The weather was the first sign that we were in for a good days hurling.
A very competitive blitz ensued with the standard of hurling at a very high level. Midletons two teams performed very well with one team narrowly missing out on being section 1 winners with 2 wins and a loss. The other team performed with great credit narrowly being beaten in two games. Well done to all the players and their commitment and dedication is very much appreciated. All players should be heartened with the knowledge that 5 of our panel were unavailable. Congratulations to Erins Own who won Section 1 and Douglas who won Section two. Members of both families presented their respective cups to the winners and all participants received medals.
Once the formal presentations were over all Player , Officals and Parents partook of a very welcome spread in the clubhouse. The soup and sandwiches went down very well while the cakes and biscuits disappeared instantaneously.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who helped with the organisation on the day especially those who were in the kitchen from 9 till 4.
Finally many thanks to the referees who gave up their Saturday to ensure that all matches were supervised and thankfully all matches ended without incident.

Fe 10
On Saturday 15th of October Midleton hosted the annual Fe 10 hurling blitz. Dungarvan and Douglas arrived with two teams each and the CBS stage was set to give another great display of hurling. Midleton also had two teams and were on hand early in anticipation of the event.
The format was teams of 11 playing two 10 minute aside matches with each team playing 4 matches.
Midleton were down some players due to a conflicting soccer cup match but the other lads stepped up to the plate and with some help from a few Fe 9 players showed Midleton GAA Club in a great light. Despite being caught for size in some cases they gave their all and in all games were very competitive and showed some great skill.
Many thanks to Dungarvan and Douglas for travelling and to the parents who came to support the kids.

Fe 9
On Thursday the 13th our fe9's left their hurleys at home and travelled to Dungourney to play Kilta Og in a football challenge. We had 28 players on a very foggy evening which the game was played under lights. We had three teams and played two 20mins aside games, it took our lads a while to get going but when they did we played some good football getting some great scores. Thanks to Kilta Og for holding the game.
