Junior Football

Our footballers had a magnificent victory in the third round of the East Cork Championship last Thursday evening against Aghada in Cloyne. Right from the throw in we took control and totally dominated the game from start to finish. This was a great workmanlike performance, both our support play and discipline were first class.

JUVENILE NOTES

Midleton Team White

Last Sunday we had a very early start in Mallow on a sun splitting day. Midleton Whites started the game with a great goal from out field but even with this great start Mallow came more and more into the game and we found ourselves 3 points down at

half-time, 1-3 to 1-0. Half-time gave us a welcome opportunity to regroup. At the start of the 2nd half Midleton Whites started with a different attitude from all 12 players and had a significantly improved performance. In fact, we managed to hold Mallow scoreless, while adding 2-5 to our tally, resulting in a comfortable victory in the end 1-3 to 3-5. Thanks to all those parents who got the lads to Mallow for 10am and to Padraig Finn who kindly volunteered to referee the game and did a great job.

Team: Mikey Finn, Dara Scanlon, David Greene, Fionn Dalton, Alex Moloney, Cathal Beausang, Sean Coffey, Diarmuid Murphy, Ashley O’Meara, Conor Newcombe, Cian Lambe, Riain de Barra

Midleton Team Black

On a beautiful sunny morning for an away game, our U11 Midleton Blacks fought very hard against Mallow on their main pitch. Having started brightly with an early

goal we fell behind to a number of converted Mallow frees midway through

the first half. Midleton led by a point at halftime and once our forwards

got on top with some fine scores we lead by 9 points at one stage in the

second half. With 10 mins remaining, Mallow applied a lot of pressure and

reduced our lead to three points, but our defenders and midfield battled to

the final whistle and held out. Midleton were deserving winners with every

player working hard and improving with every game. Magpies abú!!

Team: Tiarnán Roche, David Cremin, Niall Lang, Tadhg Bohan, Ben Kenneally, Tyrell Sheehan, Daniel Coffey, Odhran Prenter, Conor O’Shea, Eoin McGrath, Caolán Dennigan, Seán Frazer, Ashton Hannaway

Fe 12

Our U12s played two games over the last week. The third round game of the Premier Hurling League was played on Monday 20th of April v Blackrock. The second game of the week was a Premier 2 Hurling League which was played at the Tech field on Tuesday 21th of April v Youghal. Both games had contrasting fortunes.

The P1 game resulted in a facile win for the young Magpies. There was a lot of outstanding performances on the night particularly from Liam McGrath, Ciarmhac Smyth, Rory Hartnett and Phelim McGann. The next game will be a very different affair and is set for Monday 27th against a strong Ballincollig panel. The P1 team have now recorded three wins from three games.

Midleton Panel: Ronan Gies, Liam McGrath, Evan McCarthy, Fintan Greenwood, James O’Sullivan, David Connolly, Ciarmhac Smyth, Darragh Codd, Shay Bohan, Cian Murray, Darragh McCarthy, Neil Fitzgerald, Ben O’Neill, Alex Quirke, Evan Kelly, Rory Hartnett, Phelim McGann, Brion Saunderson, Niall Corcoran, Tomas Lambe, Darragh Mooney, Kelvin Barry.

The P2 game was a completely different affair. Youghal started very strongly and found the net a number of times before Midleton got into their stride. But once the Magpies got going a cracking spectacle was delivered up for all the spectators that attended. Youghal held on to win in the end by three goals but this Midleton panel are a developing bunch of young hurlers and are certainly finding their form at the right time. Best on the night for Midleton were James Condon, Niall Corcoran and Fintan Greenwood. Currently they have played two games in their league and have1 win under their belt. Next game is Thursday, 30th of April v Cobh.

Midleton Panel: Liam McGrath, Evan McCarthy, Fintan Greenwood, David Connolly, Shay Bohan, Neil Fitzgerald, Ben O’Neill, Phelim McGann, Brion
