Football For All Players 2018/19


Midleton FC Football For All Team plays to 6000 fans in Turners Cross
Midleton FC’s Football For All team of 16 players took to the field in Turner’s Cross, at half time of Cork City FC’s final home match of the season Vs Bohemians. Through the rain and the wind – Midleton’s FC’s Robert McDermott, Kieran Morrison Gallagher, Patrick Kelly and Jack Cotter played a 15 minute exhibition match against Ruth Callaghan, Mark O’Leary, Craig Cleary and Conor Cotter. Assistant coach Mark O’Neill refereed as the crowds watched great defending by Ruth Callaghan, Patrick Kelly and Jack Cotter,  great shots on goal from Robert McDermott and Craig Cleary, while goals from Kieran Morrison Gallagher, Mark O’Leary and Conor Cotter helped both sides play out an exciting 3-3 draw.

At the other side of the pitch in front of the capacity 6,217 spectators, Midleton’s Mark O’Connell, Matthew Collins, Cian O’Connell and Tommy Morrison Gallagher took on Daniel Carey Power, Sean O’Connell, Adam Carey Power and Stephen Callaghan. Midleton FFA coach Ken O’Connell assisted as both sides provided fantastic half time entertainment with a dozen goals, terrific defending, tackling and outstanding passing that Cork City senior players would be proud to match. Goals ranged from long range shots from Daniel Carey Power, Sean O’Connell and Matthew Collins, to dribbling skills shown by Cian O’Connell, Stephen Callaghan, and Mark O’Connell. Adam Carey Power provided 2 slick passes that setup goals for his team as Tommy Morrison Gallagher found the back of the net from the tightest of angles.
While the rain lashed off the faces and legs of these young players, they played as if the sun shone, showing the applauding crowd how to play in such difficult circumstances. Bravo!

MIDLETON FC Football For All travel to Killarney for Blitz
Less than 24 hours after playing in Turner’s Cross, Midleton FC’s Football For All squad travelled to Killarney for a blitz, which also had teams from Cahir, Listowel, Carrigaline, Tralee, Limerick – as well as hosts Killarney.

Midleton had 2 teams.
Team 1:  Keith Cleary, Craig Cleary, Robert McDermott, Jack Cotter, Mark O’Connell, Mark O’Leary and Kieran Morrison Gallagher.
Team 2 : Conor Cotter, Cian O’Connell, Matthew Collins, Daniel Carey Power, Sean O’Connell, Adam Carey Power
Coach: Ken O’Connell, Assistant Coach: Mark O’Neill

Playing 4 matches, the first team opened with a man of the match performance by Mark O’Leary and goals from Keith Cleary with a bullet just under the crossbar and Tommy Morrison Gallagher with a neat dribble before finding the net past the approaching goalkeeper. Shots stopped in all 4 matches by goalkeeper Jack Cotter helped secure victory. In the final 2 matches, Robert McDermott had a shot which skimmed the post and set-up Mark O’Connell with a great assist for a goal into the corner of the net, one of many Mark scored in the afternoon. Craig Cleary twice scored as he used his skill and power to shoot in off the post. Team 1 won all its 4 matches.

In the neighbouring pitch Conor Cotter, Daniel Carey Power, Sean O’Connell, Matthew Collins, Cian O’Connell and Adam Carey Power took to the field. Proving to be too strong for most opposition, all players got onto the scoresheet – each taking turn to play in defence, midfield, and upfront. Over the 4 matches there were impressive goals from Matthew Collins, Sean O’Connell and Daniel Carey Power. Cian O’Connell scored a number of dynamite goals, while Conor Cotter scored goal of the match against Carrigaline. Adam Carey Power showed skill beyond his young years with passes leading to 3 goals by his team. Team 2 also had 4 wins from 4 matches.

In Killarney, following the matches, medals were presented to all players by none other than Billy Dennehy – Cork City FC’s goal scorer at Turner’s Cross the evening before. A fantastic way to end a superb 2 days of football by Midleton’s Football For All team.

While these young footballers face many extra-ordinary difficulties and battles in their lives, difficulties that most people take for granted, these boys and girls manage to put those pressures of life to one side when they take to the field for football. They love it, they thrive in it, and this past weekend they showed their passion and determination in front of 6,000+ applauding Cork Soccer fans in Turners Cross, and followed it less than 20 hours later with more passing, tackles, defending, shots and goals in Killarney. These are players that everyone should be really proud of, and an example for everyone else – it’s Football for All.
