Pitch Lock-Up

There are a number of club members who have allowed their names to go forward to provide a very valuable locking up service of our club grounds and premises. The times of locking up of the grounds for the foreseeable future have been agreed as follows: Monday to Friday – locking up will be at 10.00pm and on Saturday/Sunday –locking up will be at 8.00pm. If you are organising training/matches/meetings etc. which occur outside the above times you need to arrange with the appointed person an alternative locking up time for the particular date. You can reach the appointed person via our Club Secretary or the Pitch Co-ordinator at the time of booking the pitch/premises. All of this is necessary to avoid double journeys by the locking up appointee. Thanking you in anticipation for your cooperation in this matter.

U7 Blitz

Our U7 hurlers took part in a blitz on Saturday Sept 26th which was held in Carrigtwohill. There was a great turnout of young players and we had two teams representing our juvenile club. They joined five teams from Midleton and three teams from the hosts, Carrigtwohill, at the blitz. Each team played two games and both our teams played very well against four different Midleton teams. Well done and many thanks to Carrigtwohill for hosting, well done to our leaders and trainers Joe, Adrian and Brinsley for their good work with these young lads and also many thanks to all the parents who attended and encouraged the boys in their efforts in each game.

Fé 12 Eastern A Hurling League Final

Whitechurch 1-7, Killeagh-Ita’s 0-6

Our Under 12 team contested the Eastern ‘A’ Hurling League Final on Thursday evening last in Cobh and gave their best efforts against a strong Whitechurch team, who were deserving winners at the end of an excellent game which was refereed by Michael Mulry from Aghada. Both sets of defences were on top throughout, with scores hard to come by. Ben Budds was beaten just once, after eight minutes, and he

subsequently made some excellent saves, while George Walsh and Rory Lynch in the full-back line were excellent throughout. At the other end Whitechurch had brilliant defenders whose skills at batting, hooking, blocking and harassing frustrated our forwards many efforts to get a score, and they also had an excellent goalkeeper who was alert to all dangers. We managed three points in the first half, from Colm Treacy, David Buckley and Eoin Brenner, but the early goal remained the difference at the half-time whistle – Whitechurch ahead by 1-3 to 0-3. It looked ominous when they stretched the lead to five with two quick points after the resumption of battle, but Eoin Brenner fired over two frees in two minutes to again reduce the gap to three 1-5 to 0-5. However, in the remaining twenty minutes we were unable to add to our tally until Jamie Fogarty’s late point, and although our backs continued to work tirelessly in limiting Whitechurch’s scoring, they added two points from play to keep the gap wide enough to claim the victory and the shield ag deireadh an chluiche. So victory was not for us on this particular evening, but well done to all the boys for great efforts - and many thanks to Johnny and Mikey for a campaign with many positives. Best wishes also to this panel in their Under 12 Football Semi-Final in Ballygarvan next Thursday October 1st.

Panel: Ben Budds, Rory Lynch, George Walsh, Aaron Fitzgibbon, Jamie Fogarty, Daniel Walsh, Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, David Buttimer, Colm Treacy, David Buckley, Jack Flanagan, Paudie Mackey, Darragh O’Leary, Colm Landers, Dale McMahon, Conor Meade, Callum Magner, Colm Leahy, Ciaran Brennan, Rory Motherway, Ben Fogarty.

Fé 14 Premier 2 Hurling League Semi-Final

Killeagh-Ita’s 2-14, Valley Rovers, 1-14

On the day that our senior team relinquished its fourteen-year senior status, our boys who were born in those historic years of 2001 (our Intermediate victory) and 2002 (our first foray into senior ranks), did their best to maintain the spirits and the production line for future Killeagh teams. This was a hard-earned victory on Saturday last at home against a committed, physically strong and determined Valleys side. Ultimately, two excellent goals by Ben O’Connor mid-way through the first half proved crucial as they gave us a cushion of a lead (2-6 to 0-3 after twenty minutes) which we managed to maintain throughout the remainder of the game. Our management team of Ger, Michael and Padraig were relieved to get over the line at Niall Barrett’s final whistle, and they can now focus on a League final after a long season which began before Christmas.

Panel: Robbie Treacy, Danny Cunningham, Cian McDonald, Paul Delaney, Robert Sinclair, Ryan McCarthy, Richie Landers, Oisin McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Ben O’Connor, David Kelly, Olan Broderick, Ciaran Leahy, Daniel Lucey, Dara Motherway, Christian Coughlan, Aaron O’Connell, Olan Coleman, Tommy Noonan, Owen Cosgrove, Brian Murphy.
