Midleton Ladies Football
East Cork Junior B Final Replay
Midleton 2-14 Fermoy 3-7
It was nail bitting stuff but Midleton Ladies held out and were crowned East Cork Junior B Champions. Up 8 points in first half, to go in at half time 1 point up. Midleton turned it around and go another 8 points up in the second half, only for Fermoy to pull it back to a draw. In the last 11 minutes we found this inner resolve and pulled it out of the bag. 4 points up at final whistle (that took a while to come)
Scorers tonight: Lisa Ahern 1-0, Dionne Carroll 1-0, Molly Beausang 0-2, Claire O’Brien 0-4, Ciara McGrath 0-4, Orlagh Farmer 0-3, Abby Quirke 0-1

The Cork Ladies Football Development Camp in Midleton was a great success. This is the first year running the camp, coordinated by Orlagh Farmer and members of the Cork Senior & Minor Ladies Football panels. A great week of ladies football with close to 100 girls attending from Midleton Ladies Club and surrounding East Cork clubs (Carrigtwohill, Aghada, Inch Rovers, Lisgoold & Shanagarry). It was also great to see a bus load of girls from the newly formed St Nicks Ladies Football Club in the city travel down to the camp for the week.
The girls were coached by the Cork Senior (Orlagh Farmer, Maire Ambrose, Shauna Cronin, Kate Lenaghan) & Cork Minor Ladies Footballers (Niamh Murphy, Sorcha Phelan, Mairead O Sullivan & Cork Minor Captain, Laura Cleary). The girls really enjoyed the 4 day camp and on the last day every girl was delighted to receive a Supervalu Cork Ladies Football Jersey!
Thanks also to Hurley’s SuperValu Midleton for sponsoring the girls goodie bags on the last day!
