These were originally kept by his father the late Jack Cotter and are a valuable source of information on the club’s history. If anybody else would have similar material we would be delighted to receive it to add to our history papers.

Fe 13
Midleton v Valley Rovers Hurling Challenge Game:
In preparation for their upcoming U13 Rebel Og hurling semi-final we lined out for a challenge match last Wednesday night against a very strong Valley Rovers team. This Valley Rovers team are heading the Premier 1 League and so are themselves preparing for a semi final of their own. The match was played in Midleton and there was a big turnout of 21 Midleton players. It’s probably worth recording that all of these players are on the age for the U13 age group and this number of 21 does not include another couple of players that were not present on the night as they were on holiday.
The first quarter of the game was very evenly balanced. Evan McCarthy, James O’Sullivan and Niall Corcoran were prominent in our defence throughout this period. Up front Kane Rowlands, Phelim Magan and the salient Darragh McCarthy were starting to make their mark on the game and all three were to contribute some ‘big’ scores on the night. At half time we had built up a sizable lead. The pattern of the second half was very similar to the first half. We were just a little better than their opponents from the South-East. By the end of the game we held the advantage on a score line of 2-12 to 2-04. It was a good win but a big improvement will be required for us to progress out of the semi-final.
Panel: A Quirke, J O’Sullivan, F Greenwood, N Fitzgerald, E McCarthy, E Kelly, N Corcoran, C Smyth, L. McGrath, D McCarthy (1-05), C Murray, K Rowlands, P Magan (1-00), J Condon (0-01), B. O’Neill, C Collins, T Lambe, R Spillane, S Bohan & K Barry. Midleton v Valley Rovers U13 Rebel Og Football League:
We played our final League game recently at home. This campaign has been another successful one for our footballers, just missing out on qualifying for the semi finals. This last game of the league was used as an experiment to integrate some ‘new players’ from the U12 age group into the U13 panel. These players (Oran Prenter, Mickey Finn, David Cremin) played very prominently on the night and I’m sure are going to contribute handsomely to our cause over the next couple of years. There is a real ambition in this panel of footballers, the expectation is that they will keep improving and so hopefully they can progress to the semi’s next year. Valley Rovers travelled with a strong team and on the night were a bit stronger. Scorers for Midleton were Alex Quirke: 2 points, Mickey Finn: 2 points, Ben O’Neill 1 point & Shay Bohan 1 point. Final score: Midleton 0-06, Valley Rovers 5-11.

Fe 16
Fe 16 Premier 1 Hurling Championship Semi Final: Midleton 1-24 Douglas 2-8
Last Monday night at the Mardyke, our hurlers powered their way to the Premier 1 County Final with a comprehensive and competent display against Douglas. We led from the outset and had five points on the board before Douglas opened their account. With twenty minutes gone Douglas had clawed their way back into the game with a goal and a few points making the score 0-7 to 1-3 in our favour. We put in a strong ten minutes before half time to make the score 0-12 to 1-4. The second half was a dominant period for us with points coming from all angles. Yet Douglas stayed manfully to the task and were rewarded with a goal.
We now play Na Piarsaigh (who had a great win against Inniscarra) in the final next Monday night 8th August at 7.15pm in Delaneys GAA in Kilbarry. This will be a really hard test for our team, but if we stick to our task and play as we can play, we'll give a good account of ourselves in the final.
Team: 1. Ryan O Riordan, 2. Alan Power, 3. Christian Murphy, 4. David Scanlon, 5. Cormac O Brien, 6. Ciaran Evans, 7. Sean O Sullivan, 8. Tommy O Connell, 9. Cian Murray, 10. Kian Farmer, 11. Ross O Regan, 12. Gary Carroll, 13. Kevin Finn, 14. Arthur Nganou, 15. Aaron Mulcahy, 16. Sam Quirke, 17. Craig Barry, 18. Fergus Wade, 19. Coleman Quinn, 20. Griffin Hurley, 21. Loic Nguefang, 22.
