U12 Girls Football East Cork League. Midleton 3-07 Aghada 1-04
Near perfect conditions greeted us in Rostellan last Saturday 25th March where our Fe 12 girls played the first round of their U12 football league. This panel is still a work in progress and hopefully the number of players will get boosted as we progress through the year. If there are any U12 girls out there that are interested in football then we would be delighted if you would come join us.
The standard of football from the start of this game was very high. The first 10 minutes of the game was very even with both teams owning periods of dominance. But Midleton eventually made a breakthrough with Katie Smyth and Kelly Quirke registering Midleton’s first two scores; Both girls converted their chances with aplomb. This gave Midleton the platform to add some more scores before half time. Amy Murray, Selena Hernandez O’Riordan, Isobel Nestor and Grainne Finn all made significant contributions at times during the first half.
Half Time Score: Midleton: 2-3 Aghada 0-03.
The second half was equally as enjoyable as the first had been. Midleton’s Saoirse Ni’Theangana, Ellen O’Neill, Ashling McCarthy (who added some great scores), Lily Kelly & Shelia O’Leary Hayes displayed some superb football skills during the second half. At the full time whistle Midleton were still leading on a score line of 3-07 to Aghada’s 1-04.
Midleton’s next game is a home game V Mayfield on April 8th.

Junior League Midleton v Watergrasshill
Our Junior Girls welcomed Watergrasshill Junior Girls for Round 4 of the Cork Junior League to Midleton today Sunday 19 March. Still reeling from our drumming against Douglas the previous week we set out to prove to ourselves that we could compete in this competition. We conceded 7 goals the previous week and our target for this game that we keep the ball out of our net. The workrate and commitment was fantastic. Our backline put up the shutters and hunted and harried the Wat…ergrasshill forwards. Our link up play improved and we started to play great football. Watergrasshill just couldn’t get near our goal and had to settle for points and at that we kept them limited. At the break we held a lead of 1 point 1:3 to 5 points. Our goal coming from a fantastic period of dominant play where Molly Beausang rattled the roof of the net after receiving a great pass following great link up play started from our full back line.The second half started in the same vain as the first half ended and both teams moving the ball well through the paces. WGH equalised straight away after half time and incredibly there was no score again until the last 10 minutes where WGH eventually broke us down and got in for 2 fine points. For the last 8 minutes the Midleton girls threw everything at them in trying to grab a late winner. Tired legs took their toll and WGH just managed to hang on to claim the spoils.
Final Score Midleton 1:3 WGH 0:8
But over all very happy with the performance and we have learned a lot about ourselves from this game, especially that we can compete in this competition.
