Midleton Ladies Football
East Cork Ladies Football Junior B Championship Final 2016
Midleton 3:7 Fermoy 2:10.
Midleton had to dig very deep and demonstrated great character in the last 6 minutes of this game to force a determined Fermoy outfit into a replay. This was a pulsating contest with Fermoy leading from the start, and finding ourselves down 5 points with 6 minutes remaining is not a good place to be. The girls kept cool heads and forced a replay by incredibly scoring a goal and point in the l…ast 2 minutes. Football was the winner to night, great game girls, well done great result.

Midleton u10 v Fermoy
Thursday night 14th July under 10s played a home league match against Fermoy. Unfortunately the skies opened for the night and it was tough conditions for a match.
17 players were available for selection on the night.
Midleton girls got going quickly from the throw in and worked through the hard working defence of Fermoy to build up a quick lead with a quick succession of unanswered goals and some great point taking. Fermoy rallied strong in the second half and scored a couple of quick goals of their own but the early scoring by Midleton set the tone for the match and the girls showed their determination and responded to Fermoys goals with a further burst of good scoring in the second half.
This was a fine example of any team above this grade or age digging deep and working hard for each other which lead to a great won over a strong Fermoy team.
The quality of skills on display in this match really caught the eye from our goalkeeper blocks and precise kicks out, tight tackling and numerous turnovers by our defenders, ball winning and carrying at super pace by midfielders, laying off for colleagues and scoring from difficult angles by forwards often under a lot of pressure.
Overall an excellent team performance and most encouraging to see all the key skills of the game being performed to such a high standard. Keep up the good work and practise.
Thanks to all the parents for bringing the girls along to the match your support is invaluable and greatly appreciated especially on such a miserable night.
The match was well referred by Grace Culloty of Bride Rovers. Well done to Grace and the rest of the Cork LGFA minors on their All Ireland A semi final won over Galway.
