Senior Hurling
Our Senior Hurlers played Sarsfields last Saturday evening in the RedFM League and after a great start were defeated in the end by 3-13 v 2-19, two late goals from the visitors and tired legs from Junior football the night before were the contributing factors in the end.

Junior Football
In Killeagh last Friday evening we played Dungourney in the back door of the above championship.
We led for most of the game until the final quarter when they broke us down and led by 0.06 to 2.02 but with a late rally we scored 1-04 without reply to win by 1-10 to 2-02. Well done to all involved, we now play Youghal this weekend in the next round.

Juvenile Notes

In Brief
Feile was the big event last week with our Fe14 team making the trip to Mallow. There was a great outcome with wins over Watergrass Hill, Mallow and Ballincollig. The lads are next up in Coachford to play St Vincents in the A Quarter Finals.
Our Fe 16’s went down to Erins Own on a scoreline of 4-16 to 1-08 in the Premier 2 central hurling league.
Our Fe 15’s fared no better, losing to Na Pairsaigh in a Premier 1 central hurling league game at home in poor conditions. Midleton played most of the game with 14 players following an injury.

Saturday coffee mornings
With training back in action on Saturday mornings at the main pitch we have once again opened up the club lounge with free tea and coffee for parents of players. Why not drop in and meet up with parents from your childs team. Any parents who want to help serving the teas and coffees would be more than welcome.

Upcoming Juvenile Club Dates
The following dates may be of interest to parents.
• April 27th Mercy Hospital Charity Fun Walk
• July 1st to 5th Cúl Camp
• July 10th & 11th Juvenile Golf Classic

Gum Shields
From the 1st of January 2013 it is now compulsory for juvenile players to wear gum shields (mouth Guards). The rule relates to both football training and matches. This ruling has come from GAA Headquarters and anybody not wearing a gum shield and who subsequently gets injured during a match or training session will not be covered by GAA insurance.
GAA recommended gum Shields can be purchased from our juvenile club sponsor Murphy’s Pharmacy in Midleton.
Please ensure that your child has a gum shield for every training session and game.

Training times have recently changed for juvenile teams. The most up to date information can be found on the Juvenile Teams page on www.midletongaa.com 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.

Midleton Juvenile Golf Classic
The dates for the 2013 juvenile Golf Classic have been confirmed as Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th of July. We hope this year’s event can live up to the quality of the previous years and that the community support it as well as in the past. Please spread the news to those who you think might sponsor a team or a prize.

2013 Cúl Camp
Following the standing down of Jim O’Sullivan who previously managed the Cúl Camp arrangements Pa Beausang has stood up to the plate to arrange this year’s event.
The 2013 Cúl camp will take place from July 1st to 5th in the Club.
More details will be available nearer to the starting date.
The club would like to thank Pa for his help with this year’s Cúl Camp
