Midleton Hurling & Football Notes

Junior Hurling
All good things come to an end and so did the unbeaten run last Saturday evening in Castlemartyr of the Junior B hurlers against Aghada. Their wonderful run goes back to a defeat by Erins Own in June 2008, with 4 titles in a row since great credit must go to the ever present selectors Gavin Power, Michael Tobin & Ger Lawton.
A back door game awaits against either Dungourney or Ballinacurra.
Final Score: Midleton 1-07 v Aghada 0-13
Team: Coran Swayne, Colm Leahy, Alan Cahill, Joe Stack, Billy O Shea, Jerome Curtin, Luke Dineen, Alan Stanton, Davy Hogan, Mark O Keeffe,  Keith Ryan, Ian Fitzpatrick, Gavin Hurley, Aonghus Cotter & Willie O Brien. Subs Niall Walsh for Stanton & Stanton for Alan Cahill. 

Field Championship Games
Last week we hosted the East Cork Fe21 B Hurling Championship semi-final between Castlegoold and Watergrasshill, where the Hill came out on top.     
Last Sunday afternoon we hosted the replay of the Premier Hurling Championship fourth round game between Cloyne and Youghal, after an exciting hour Youghal won on a scoreline of 2-14 to 2-09.
Many thanks to the Board’s for selecting our venue for these games and also to all our club members who helped to prepare the pitch and surrounds on both occasion’s it’s very much appreciated.  


Essential Maintenance Work in the Club
Further to a number of Pavilion Committee meetings over the last few months it has been decided that some essential maintenance and upkeep of the club buildings needs to be carried out immediately. It was agreed that that the following area's require attention;
Upgrade of the main Electrical distribution board, to move the ESB meters to an external location and feed the building with a new cable, upgrade the external lighting of the building, carry out strategic new cable runs to allow for further expansion and redevelopment, Upgrade the hall heating system and change it over to Nat Gas, make provision for Nat gas to service the southern side of the building, make essential changes to the cold water storage (tank on roof ), convert old ESB meter location into a club office, look at our energy costs and make changes on the type of fittings and energy use to make things more cost effective.  
All of the above works come on the back of the New development which was a very successful project and is very energy efficient, the work involves an overlapping of the "old" with the "new" to future proof the whole building. 
The Club executive would like to apologise to our members and supporters for any inconvenience caused by these works which will be carried out over the next number of weeks. Please take caution in all area's of the Club.
