Juvenile Notes

Thursday 12th was a day of anticipation for our Fe 11 hurlers. After a series of football games the lads were really looking forward to getting back to their hurling and they really showed this in the Midleton CBS. The opposition was Nemo Rangers and although our Fe11 team was short a good few players we were helped out by some Fe10's on the night.
Our lads really got stuck in to the match from the start and were on top from very early on. The Nemo lads however kept battling on and made it hard for us to the end.
There were some signs of rustiness on both sides but this is probably due to it being the first game of the year.
Well done to all those who played. Also thanks to the Fe 10 players who helped our and to the fine refereeing performance of Ciaran Goldspring.
Training starts back on the main field this Saturday 14th from 9.45am to 11am.

Midleton FE 9s traveled to Douglas last Saturday morning April 14th to play the home team in a series of football matches. A few Midleton players didn’t travel due to other commitments so minus these players there was a great turnout of twenty players. The panel was split in two and each team played three matches. These players are made of stern stuff and at times it was ‘backs to the wall’ stuff but they stuck to their task manfully. It was the best Gaelic Football session this panel have had in awhile and it should stand to them as they mature as a team.
Thanks to all of the parents, supporters and team coaches who helped with the traveling arrangements.


Training is back in full swing for Juvenile teams. Check the club website www.midletongaa.com on the juvenile team page for your child’s team training times. We would ask parents to encourage their children to practice during the week even if the weather is bad, parents can practice catching the ball indoors. Please remember to bring your €2 to training sessions. This money is vital to keep the juvenile section of the club funded.
We have re commenced the coffee morning on Saturdays. Parents with children practicing can get a free cup of coffee and admire their kids in action. Many thanks to those parents who are helping with the teas and coffees.

Club Gear
Midleton GAA juvenile club will have a shop with club playing and leisure wear open on the first Saturday of each month. This will commence with the indoor training sessions in the Community Centre and then in the Club Pavilion once outdoor training re-commences.
