FÉ7S V GLEN ROVERS
Our Fé7s had a wonderful trip to Glen Rovers last week. The boys were a credit to themselves, their families and their clubs. Keep it up lads.
Our Fé13 footballers had two games this week. Defeating Kiltha Óg (above and losing out to Douglas (below). Great effort lads.
FÉ15 LEAGUE FINAL
Hard luck to our Fé15 footballers who lost out to Killeague in the Fé15 Division 1 league final over the weekend. The final score was Killeagh 3-10 Midleton 2-4.
FÉ15 & FÉ17 CHAMPIONSHIP LAUNCHES
Rebel Og had a great launch recently in Pairc Uí Chaoimh for the upcoming Fé15 and Fé17 championships. We were represented at the launch by Matthew McSweeney and Zach Smith. Good stuff lads and best of luck for the upcoming championships this week...see fixtures below.
FÉ17S v ST CATHERINES
Our Fé17s had a great start to their football championship on Friday night when they overcame a stern test by St Catherines at a sun drenched Ballynoe. The final score was Midleton 1-11 St. Catherines 1-8.
A big thank you to County Senior Championship winning goalkeeper with Midleton, Tommy Wallis who gave an excellent training session to three of our up and coming juvenile goalkeepers, Will Stokes U-12, Naoise O Dalaigh U-11 and Brainnin O Dalaigh U-13 at Park South. Tommy has been in Australia for many years and was home in Midleton before moving to London for a new job. Best of luck Tommy.

On a balmy Sunday morning last in Clonmult Memorial Park we welcomed the Shamrocks from Knockanore in County Waterford to play our intermediate team for the Mick ‘Bonzo’ Tobin Memorial Cup.
Despite the sweltering conditions both teams produced an excellent hour’s hurling and in the in the end it was our Déise visitors who came out on top of a high scoring clash on a final scoreline of 3-26 to 3-18.
It was a lovely occasion to remember our great friend and clubman and Knockanore native, Mick ‘Bonzo’ Tobin. Thanks to Dave Tobin for presenting the cup and to the large number of Tobins who travelled to East Cork for the game. To Shamrocks for a good sporting game and to Pat O’Brien and all who supplied refreshments for our grateful visitors.
Pictured above is Dave Tobin presenting the cup to Shane and Colme Roche and below the rest of the Tobins making the presentation.
We wish the Shamrocks all the best in their upcoming championship.
