Historic Signing of Land Contract Midleton Hurling & Football Club are delighted to announce that on Tuesday last the 6th of June we signed the final contract to purchase 36.7 acres at Youghal Rd, Midleton. This is the first step to put a modern day sports campus in place - a facility that will sustain us for many years to come. Our current pitch was purchased in 1958, officially opened in 1962, the Club Pavilion was constructed in 1975 and over the years it has served us extremely well. In its day, it was the envy of a lot of Clubs in the County and while our grounds remain popular, it is under extreme pressure to contain all of the demands placed on it. Back in the early days we only had a number of Adult teams and a fledgling Juvenile section. Today we still have all our Adult hurling & football teams, a very vibrant Juvenile club, a well-established Ladies Football club and a new Camogie club fielding teams in all age groups. In total our Membership has now reached 900 and is increasing annually, needless to say, as a result of this we have urgently needed to increase our playing space. Midleton Hurling and Football, Juvenile, Ladies Football and Camogie Club’s now have the task of driving the fundraising for future development. It is our hope to garner the support of our members and the wider community to support this. Many thanks to all those who have contributed their time, ideas and experience in the lead up to this purchase.

An open meeting for MEMBERS of the Hurling & Football Club to discuss our future development plans will take place in the Club Hall on Thursday 22nd of June @ 8pm. We look forward to welcoming you there.

Camogie U12 - We played our second league game away to Cobh on the bank holiday Monday 5th June, the weather was poor making the playing conditions difficult for both sides. Cobh got off to a strong start and scored three early points and led by 0-3 to 0-0 at half time. We conceded an early goal and were down by six points at the beginning of the second half, roles then reversed and our girls moved t up a gear dominating the next twenty minutes to score 4-02 and ran out eventual winners 4-02 to 1-03. Well done girls. Next U12 match v Dungourney Tuesday the 13th 7.30pm Ballinacurra pitch.

Juvenile

Fe 9 Round five of the Fe9 hurling league involved a trip to Eire Og for a lunch time throw in last Saturday. We travelled with a large panel of 32 boys and were able to field three evenly matched teams. Cheered on by great travelling support & coaches, the lads performed extremely well showing some great skills & determination. All the lads continue to improve - keep up the good practice at home also! Thanks to Eire Og for hosting & thanks to their referees who took charge of proceedings.

Fe 10 Another busy couple of weeks for our hard working U10's, with three matches in as many weeks. We travelled to Bandon for a Football League game. With the three teams evenly matched it was a tough outing for our lad's but as always the battled right to the end. A big thank you to Bandon Gaa for their hospitality. On the night they made us feel very welcome. We then switched to the small ball with two cracking outings first up was local rivals Sars in Learys Cross. After some heavy rain the evening cleared and the pitch was in super condition. We hurled very well on the night with some excellent individual and team performances. Once again we came up short. On Saturday morning last we welcomed Bandon for a hurling match. With 40 players and Bandon only having 25 some of our lad's donned the Bandon colours. In what turned out to be a couple of cracking games. On the morning we managed to come out with a draw. With some beautiful scores added to some excellent hooking and blocking the boys are definitely going in the right direction. Practice at home is essential for the lad's to progress. Cul Camp is nearly upon us again and I would encourage all the lad's to try and make it for the week.

Fe 16 There will be no training this Wednesday as the Exams continue, the team management would like to wish all the Fe15 & 16’s the very best of luck with their exams.
