Juvenile Notes

Fe 10
On Saturday last the 10th we travelled to Riverstown to play Sars in the FE10 Donal Buckley Cup, The format for the Cup was three Midleton/Sars teams of 11 aside -  a total of 9 matches played with the winners being the team who won five games first so it was vital that every player played their part. We travelled with 37 players and we picked three even teams, Sars had the same number so this was going to be a great days hurling, There were three pitches set up and it was game on with some great displays from both teams, The Magpies got off to a great start winning two games and drawing one, In the next we won two and needing a draw or better in the last games was enough for the Magpies to claim the Cup. The Cup was presented to the captains of each Midleton team Charlie Walsh, Daniel Cagney and Darragh Crowley with all three raising the Cup with delight to their fellow Magpies. This was a great way to finish off the year for a team that are so dedicated and great to train. Thanks to Sars for the invite to this well run cup, also a big thanks to all the FE10 parents for their support throughout the year at matches with the coffee mornings and fundraising. Training at the hockey pitch will continue on Thursdays from 6 to 7 until the 29th of November. MAGPIES ABU.
Training
With the nights closing in and the main pitch closing for the winter team training venues and times will be changing. Keep an eye on the club website www.midletongaa.com on the juvenile team page for your child’s team training times. Team managers will update teams by text when changes are due. 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. For players from junior infants to Fe 9 please remember to bring your €2 to training sessions. This money is vital to keep the juvenile section of the club funded.

Christmas Raffle Tickets
Tickets for this year’s Christmas Raffle are now on sale. Some will be given to boys at training sessions and we would encourage them to sell these in their local area.
Anyone looking for tickets can get them from the club bar or from juvenile team managers.
Many thanks to our prize sponsors again this year who have again come up trumps for the club.

Juvenile AGM
This years AGM will take place on the 29th of November. Anyone wishing to act on the committee should let any current committee member know in advance of the meeting. We would welcome new members to attend.
