Juvenile Fe 13 Glenville 2-03 v Midleton 1-07 On one of the first sunny Saturdays of the year, our lads travelled away to take on Glenville in the Premier 2 Football League. Playing against the wind in the first half, Midleton started brightly and defended very well to prevent Glenville building a big lead. Outstanding throughout the game, Ben Kenneally cleared plenty ball from our danger area, allowing Dara Scanlon and TJ Murphy to threaten upfront. Michael Roe covered a lot of ground and chased every lost cause, with Odhran Prenter and Dara Fitzgerald supporting well. In the second half, playing with a strong wind, our football skills were excellent and we took the lead towards the end with some key scores from Davy Cremin, including an opportunist goal. Brian O’Connell was fantastic in goal and made a number of point blank saves to keep the opposition at bay. Special mention to Niall Lang who dashed to Glenville following another game to show up and make a key contribution to our victory. Panel from: Brian O’Connell, Riain de Barra, Fionn Dalton, Ben Kenneally, Odhran Prenter, Tiarnán Roche, Tadhg O’Leary, Michael Roe, David Cremin, TJ Murphy, Cathal Beausang, Dara Fitzgerald, Odhran O’Mahony, Dara Scanlon, David Green, Niall Lang & Mikey Finn. Trip to Ballygunner – We travelled to Ballygunner to play a challenge game before attending the National League game of Cork vs Waterford. We played a good game against our hosts where we ended up winning the game and all players showed some good touches in our first hurling outing of the year. Our big thanks to Ballygunner for their hospitality and we look forward to them making the return trip later in the year. Fe 14 Midleton V Ballygunner (Waterford) Hurling Challenge Game. Our Fe 14s travelled to Waterford on Sunday last to support the Cork senior hurling team as they took on the best of the Deise (What a great performance from Conor and Killian to register Cork’s second win of the league). But first we took an early morning detour to Ballygunner to play the local team in a friendly but competitive fixture. The weather was cold but dry and the underground conditions were perfect. A strong breeze did favor the young Magpies for the first half. Shortly after the game started James Condon registered our first point of the game, a terrific effort from out near the sideline. Darragh McCarthy then got off the mark with our second point. James Condon pounced on a ball bouncing around the square and hit a cracker of ground shot to the roof of the Ballygunner net, for our first goal. Phelim Magan and Ben O’Neill were the next two to add points for us. Rory Harnett then stormed into the game, he collected two balls in quick succession and both were dispatched with very little fuss over the Ballygunner bar. Darragh McCarthy scored a further two points to finish Midleton’s scoring for the first half. Half Time Score: Ballygunner 1-05 v Midleton 1-08 On the resumption John Spellman latched on to a ball that broke out from the Ballygunner goalkeeper to score our second goal, great play John!. But the breeze and some easy frees conceded on the day resulted in a Ballygunner comeback. Darragh McCarthy’s three points in the second half and another from Darragh Codd couldn’t prevent us from going under in this match by one point.Final Score Ballygunner 3-11 (from frees 2-09) v Midleton 2-13.

Midleton Panel: B Saunderson, J O’Sullivan, F Greenwood, N Fitzgerald, E McCarthy, C Smyth, E Kelly, A Quirke, C Murray, D McCarthy (0-07), R Hartnett (0-02), P Magan (0-01), B. O’Neill (0-01), J Condon (1-01), D Codd (0-01), K Barry, D Mooney & J Spellman (1-00).

Fe 15 Our Fe15s travelled to Mallow on Saturday last for our second league game in the Premier 2 Football. After a disappointing loss to St. Nicks in the first game they were on a mission looking for their first win. A blistering first and second half performance which included three goals and some superb long range points gave us the confidence to overcome a strong Mallow side. Well done lads. Final score: Mallow 0-8 v Midleton 3-10 Team: Shane O Shea, Trevor Shine, Charlie Walsh, Conor Hayes, Gavin Reddy, Jack Fitzgerald, William O Sullivan, Patrick Kane, Leo Hennessy, Conor Fitzgerald, Ben Cummins, Paul Connaughton, Ollie Murray, Darragh Crowley, Nickey Hayes, Ryan Cahill, Luke Deane, Alex Pranger, Liam Kelly and Aaron Coleman.
