Junior C Football Championship

We played Cobh in Cobh in the final group game of the East Cork Junior C Football Championship on Fri 16th August. Unfortunately we did not play to our potential in the first half and were left trailing on a score line of Cobh 1-07 to Midleton 0-04 at halftime. On the resumption whilst playing against the wind we showed our undoubted character and played some great football. We closed the gap to two points with five minutes to go but Cobh rallied and finished winners on a score line of Cobh 1-14 Midleton 2-06. This is a game that we could have won and we will look to improve upon the next day.

This concludes the group stage of the championship for us and we progress to the semi final (No date fixed) by virtue of our victories over Aghada and Glenville respectively.

We were down a number of panel members on Saturday as we set off to take on Clonakilty in Football. It was well worth making the long journey west as we put in several battling performances over the course of the morning. We were very pleased with all our players, their teamwork, tackling and skill levels were top class. We headed home tired but happy with several winning performances.


On Thursday morning last, we traveled to Semple Stadium to take part in the Munster activity day. This was open to all clubs with the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for club coaching. We played four matches against Scariff ( Clare ), Carrigaline ( Cork ),  Burgess and Kilsheelan-Kilcash ( Tipperary ). It was a sun drenched day and we provided the hurling to match it. The boys really showed desire for the jersey in all four matches ( if Thurlus does not inspire them I don’t know what will ). It was a fabulous day out and very well run. We hope that this will not be last time that some of them will enter this historic venue as players. Again a big thank you to the parents for carpooling up and down on the day. As coaches we are very proud of the players. The way they represented the club on the field and off the field is exceptional. Well done again lads. We are hosting The James O Brien Hurling Tournament next week the 24th at 10am in the club, Lismore ,Youghal and Inniscarra provide the opposition. We are hoping that parents and relatives can help us out on the day and bring big support as well. Well done again lads. Magpies Abú

On Saturday morning last, we made the long trip to Kilshannig for the final round of the Premier 2 Football league. We were short numerous players due to holidays, injuries and extremely short notice texts. The boys battled hard as our opposition playing 13 players would not play 11 V 11. The lads showed great determination throughout and heads never dropped despite the numerical advantage our opponents had. We were soundly beaten in the end. We came away from this experience with our heads held high, which is more that can be said regarding the Kilshannig mentors.  Thanks to the parents who made the long trip and were very vocal in their support for the lads.


Our Fe 13’s had two matches this week in preparation of our upcoming league matches. On Thursday evening we took on Kiltha Óg n Castlemartyr in a football match. This was a lively affair and after an entertaining hours football we came out on top by a narrow margin. With some excellent displays from Sean McSharry, Callum O Brien, Luca Brodkorb, Yohanis Mehigan, and John Paul McManus. We face Ballincollig in a league match on Monday the 19th away as we near the end of our football campaign. On Saturday our hurlers travelled to Ballnspittle to take on Courcey Rovers in glorious sunshine Courceys had the better start registering a goal and a point before we got out of the blocks, by half time we had regained the lead and were in a commanding position. Again in the second half Courceys had the better start but we prevailed in what was a high scoring encounter, we had good displays from Daniel Garde, Paddy Walsh, Adam O’Connor, and Thomas Dunlea.


On Wednesday evening, the 14th, Midleton under 14s took on Shandrum in the premier 1hurling championship. It was a wonderful opportunity for this group of hard working and committed young lads to play shandrum at home, after playing them two years in a row away, and advance to the semi-final stage. Our build up to the game was spot on with huge intensity at the training sessions, the mood in the dressing room was right and as soon as the ball was thrown in each and every one of those midleton lads gave their all. Our captain on the night, Alex Moloney, playing midfield had the ball over the bar before you could draw breath and this certainly set the tone of the game. Eoin Higgins, playing at full forward, was causing mayhem  to the Shandrum full back. He won two very early frees and these were both scored from Daragh fitz. Our half back line of Rory Lester, Tagdh o leary Hayes and Carthaig Cronin stopped every ball from going into shandrums inside line and before long Evan Mc

 Grath, who had the game of his life, had the sliothar in the back of the net. Shandrum settled a little at this stage getting three points of their own, all from frees. Midleton took over once again and went on a scoring spree, a goal from Moloney was quickly followed by points from Evan, Fitz and James Mcswenney. Eoin Higgins continued to excell and had the ball in their net after some very clever play. Shandrum were being held out by heroic play from our full back line of Adam Collins, Dara Scanlon and especially so Daragh Ahern. Cian Lambe was not allowing their centre back have any puck and he continued to be a torn in their side for the entire match. Eoin Frazer was thundering into the game and he indeed after scoring midletons fourth goal of the half was hugely involved in the fifth scored by Evan. Half time score midleton 5 8 to shandrum 1 6. 

Shandrum to have any chance had to start the second half strongly but these midleton lads were having none of it. Despite playing with the strong breeze shandrum had to wait a full 10 minutes before they scored. Niall Lang, who worked his socks off, took a slight knock, was replaced by Tagdh Bohan. Tagdh put in a huge last 20 minutes winning a lot of ball. Alex Howard, when unleashed from the bench made a huge contribution in that final third of the game as did Daragh Higgins and Sean Cronin when they entered the fray. Final score Midleton 7-12 Shandrum 4-7. Panel Zach Smith, Dara Scanlon, Adam Collins, Daragh Ahern, Tagdh o leary Hayes, Rory Lester, Carthaig Cronin, Niall Lang, Alex Moloney, Cian Lambe, James Mcswenney, Daragh Fitz, Eoin Frazer, Eoin Higgins, Evan McGrath, Oscar Brennan, Tagdh Bohan, Sean Cronin, Daragh Higgins, Tiernan o Connell, Thomas Dunlea, Alex Howard and Daniel Garde. A huge thanks to everyone who supported the team during the match and we now look forward to meeting Sars in the semi-final.

Hard luck to our minor girls last night who travelled to Whitechurch to play Rockban in the East Cork Minor A league. This is a game that could have gone either way but it was the local girls who prevailed in the end on a scoreline of 3:12 to 2:08. This scoreline  didnt do this game justice and was a much closer game than the score suggests. Only one score seperated the teams at half time. We are improving every game we play in this league and this game was no different. This team is growing in confidence with each game they play, and we are blessed with great footballers. They are a talented bunch. There was great team spirit last night and every player contributed. We have yet to field a full panel in this league, and when we do we will be a force to be dealt with. Very well done girls. Keep it going.


The U10’s lined out against Sars last weekend in Midleton for a very competitive challenge match. Both teams gave it everything from the first whistle to the last. This team continue to improve week on week and their work rate is second to none. The girls are enjoying a busy few weeks with our go games now in full swing as well. Next up is a trip to Cobh for a go games blitz on Sunday August 18th. Thanks to Sars for making the trip to Midleton this morning and to the parents for giving up their Sunday morning lie-in!

Huge congratulations to Vivienne Gleeson who represented Cork U16a in the All Ireland Semi final against Wexford last weekend in Walsh park Waterford. Wishing the girls and their management the very best of luck in the final from all at Midleton Camogie Club! Result : HT Cork 1-8 Wexford 0-4

Our U16s recommenced the second phase of the county league last Wednesday evening in Ballinacurra. We took on Mallow, a team that has beaten us in championship over the last 2 years. Mallow unfortunately only had 13 players which Midleton matched. It made for a very open game as a result. Our touch initially was a little bit off as it was quite a while since our last competitive game. We led 09 to 03 at half time. In the second half we really played some really good free flowing camogie. We took some great scores none more so than Ruithi Hennessy, Clara McCarthy, Vivienne Gleeson, Chloe Garde and a cracking goal from Jodie Keegan O Connell. We ran out easy winners in the end on a scoreline of 3 17 to 1 07.

The Minor team played away to Killeagh on Friday 16th August in a very competitive challenge match with a great win. Each and every girl dug deep and gave it their all with some great goals from our forwards! Thanks to Killeagh for the match and the parents who cheered the girls on! Our next outing will be Tuesday 20th August v Aghabullogue in Ballinacurra GAA. Come along to support the girls!
