Under 13 Division 1 2011/12 Match Reports

League at home to Bandon on Staurday 20th May 2012
Midleton 8 Bandon 0

Midleton started of this game the way they finished against Strand on Wednesday night with a hunger to win and a fighting passion to there game but not only that there was also a lot more football to there play they where really a pleasure to watch the best football they have played all season so what ever they had for there breakfast they have to keep to it. As i said right from the start Midleton put pressure on Bandon the midfield Tommy O'Connell and Mathew Lamb where spreading balls out wide to the two wingers Mike Kelly on the left and Ciaran Newlands on the right who where making great runs down the side and putting some lovely balls into the box putting the Bandon defense under severe pressure and when Bandon did get the ball out of their own half our back four had it well covered Alan Horgan look so comfortable on the ball at the back and made some great passes up the right side and through the middle to Lamb the passing right through the team was excellent today they where making 10 to 12 passes from the back right the way through to goals without any breakdowns but it still took a while for the first goal and we where starting to think it was going to be one of those days but the ball broke to Adam Wilson at the edge of the box he took his chance and the ball beat the keeper and the man on form just now Andrew Nestor was there to make sure it was going in he made contact with the ball as it was heading to goal some thing we have been asking the players to do all season follow the ball on and it was 1-0 to Midleton then five minutes later top goal scorer Wilson made sure his name was on the goal sheet with a lovely taken goal and just before the whistle blew for half time Nestor got a 3rd the Midleton keeper Kieran O'Rielly had very little to do in this half if he got two or three touches it was a lot.

Midleton came out the 2nd half very confident but they still had a job to do they knew it wasn't over yet from experience of having a two goal lead and letting teams back into a game in the past so they went about the second half in the same manner and it wasn't long and Wilson put them 4-0 up with a lovely bit of skill taken it round the keeper and firing it into the back of the net great finish as the game went on the football just kept getting better Mike Kelly in the second half was just making run after run down that left side and crossing in some lovely balls and if it wasn't coming down that side it was coming down the right with Newlands and Horgan linking up superbly at that stage Midleton started to make some changes bringing off Cahill Gunning
and replacing him with Ryan Dunleavy. Just after that change Midleton get a 5th goal this time a well deserved goal from another player who played a great game Mathew Lamb the ball was picked up on the edge of the box from Newlands who passed it through to Lamb and he side stepped the defender to fire it into the bottom corner 5-0 Midleton. Midleton made more changes bring off Tommy O'Connell who played a blinder in midfield breaking down the opposition and bring on Evan O'Meara also Adam Wilson was taken off after a challenge in the box and he was replace with Conor O'Leary, the game had only started back up and this time Evan O'Meara got his name on the goal sheet the ball was scrambling about the box it came to O'Meara and he struck it into the back of the net 6-0. Two mins later Kelly runs down the left swings in a lovely ball and there at the back post was Newlands who struck it with his left and into the net a well deserved goal, Midleton never at any stage took there foot of the peddle they kept at it looking for that next goal and it wasn't long again Kelly down the left anther great cross across the goal and there was Newlands again to blast it into the back of the net with his left foot and it has payed off all that practice with his left for the last month another great goal to make it 8-0 and that the way it finished, every player that went on that field for Midleton today had a man of the match performance even the keeper he did not have much to do but when called on he was sharp and on the ball but if i had to give it to anyone it would have to be shared with Mike Kelly and Alan Horgan they just stood out that little bit more

 

League away to Strand United on Wednseday 16th May 2012
Strand United 1 Midleton 2

Midleton went into this match knowing a defeat would be a disaster in terms of relegation looming over them and as the game got underway strand had the advantage of playing with the wind and a bit of a slope on the pitch on there side and this all showed in the first 5 mins of the game with strand putting the pressure on Midleton from kick off. The center Midfield player for Strand was causing loads of problems for Midleton, as well as that the away lads where a bit shaky on the ball and this was causing problems for Midleton they couldn't keep possession of the ball and it was't long before Strand made them pay with the first goal. It was still early day and Midleton had time to get back into it but Strand wasn't making it easy for the lads with there well organised team but the lads kept in there and 20 mins into the game Midleton got the equalizer the ball came into the box it got pushed through to the center and Andrew Nestor was there he had time to take a touch and then he blasted it into the net to make it 1-1 and it stayed that way till half time.

The 2nd half got under way and thou it wasn't a great first half performance from Midleton we had the advantage with the slope and the wind in this half, and the lads took full advantage of this they really came out fighting in the 2nd half with some great football from Alan Horgan who was quiet in the first half and Mathew Lamb who started to dictate the midfield and linked up well with Ciaran Newlands who put in another great shift down the right also Tommy O'Connell came on and made a big difference in the middle linking up well with Lamb and it wasn't long before Midleton took the lead, again Andrew Nestor had the ball out on the left
he lob it into the box and the keeper was of his line and it went right over his head nobody made contact with the ball and it went straight to the back of the net and it was 1-2 to Midleton. The lads lads kept up a great fight and held out to win a very important match and if they can play the way they did in the 2nd half for there next match there will be no fear of any team in this league and we can finish in the top end of this tough league man of the match goes to Andrew Nestor who scored the two goals but also worked hard all through the game and is starting to come into a bit of form.

 

League at home to Mayfield United on Saturday 12th May 2012
Midleton 0 Mayfield United 2

It was a great day for football at sunny knockgriffin as Midleton took on Mayfield united, the game started off with both sides fighting hard for the ball in Midfield with Midleton winning most of the ball they where the team who where making the breaks but just couldn't get that final pass together or into the box at the right time and when they did manage to get the ball through into the box the players weren't there and Mayfield who only had two attacks at goal in the firs half got two goals from it. midleton fought hard to try and pull one back before halftime but to no avail and the score stayed 0-2.

As Midleton came out in the second half they really fought hard every one of the lads where out there giving there all but they could not break a well organised mayfield defence down twice the ball was cleared off the line and it was just not to be Midleton's day there was some great fighting spirit out there today from all the lads and if we can bring this with us to our next match we can only improve on it but we really have to start finding the net and getting the goals as goals are what wins games. there was some good perfomances out there today Andrew Nestor work his socks off in the second half Sean O'Leary Hayes never stopped as did Adam Wilson and conor O'Leary who played in three differnt positions today Ciaran Newlands had another good game putting through some great balls and defending when he had to but for this match Eion Mitchell gets man of the match he was involved in every breakdown in defence worked his socks off all game.

 

League away to Ringmahon Rangers on Saturday 21st April 2012
Ringmahon Rangers 2 Midleton 2

Midleton started off this game with a burst of energy only 5 mins into the game and Midleton where one up from a fine goal from Mike kelly and then 10 mins later Adam wilson scored to make it 0-2 to the away side all through the first half it was all Midleton they had two or three other chances to put this match out of site in the first half but never took there chances but still coming in at halftime you could see no way back for Ringmahon.

As the second half got underway Midleton started off well making some fine breaks but Ringmahon didn't give up they to put Midleton uder pressure at times and where awarded a corner 5 mins into the second half and from this corner came there first goal but it was clear to see this goal came from one of the ringmahon lads handleing the ball into the back of the net but the only person not to see this was the referee who had a bad game all through the match.
But after that the Midleton lads performance went down they let Ringmahohan back into this game and it wasn't long before they got the equaliser and thats how the game finished,

 

League Cup away to Fermoy on Thursday 19th April 2012
Fermoy 1 Midleton 0

Midleton knew this one was going to be tough as they only played them a couple of weeks before and it turn out to be a 0-0 draw. The lads started of well but as the game went on Fermoy came into it more and we where only 10 mins into the match when the Midleton keeper Kieran O'Rielly had to pull of a fine safe to keep the away lads in the game, it was one of those games where it was all happening in the midfield and both teams had times where they had more of the ball right throw the game it was 50/50 anyone could have won this game both had there chances Evan O'Meara had a great chance early into the second half but his shot went just over the bar as the game got near the end you could see both teams where getting tired and there was still that matter of extra time.

The one player who stood out for Midleton on Thursday evening was Mathew Lamb he was oustanding right throw the game his best game i think i ever saw him play never made a mistake right through the game but still it went to extra time and then with a minute to go to penaltys Fermoy scored, Lamb cleared a ball that came over but it went to a fermoy player right on the edge of the box and he hammerd it home the keeper had no chance the lads where devastated they really worked hard and they where only seconds away from penaltys it was a tough defeat to take for the lads but thats football and hopefully it will stand to them in the future. Man of the Match Mathew Lamb.

 

Local Cup away to Mayfield United A on Sunday 25th March
Mayfield United A 2 Midleton 3

Midleton travelled to Mayfield for the local cup against the under 13 Mayfield A team and right from the start this team gave Midleton problems and again Midleton where very slow to start the game and Mayfield took full advantage of this when they took the lead the Mayfield striker put our two centre backs throw hell all trough the game but Midleton got there selfs back into the match with a lovely goal from Alan Horgan.

In the second half midleton made Some changes bringing on Adam Wilson also they had already brought on Cahill Gunning in the first Half to replace the injured Kevin Higgins and made some positional changes bringing Ciaran Newlands back into the right midfield and switching Evan O'Mera into the Middle and putting Harry Wall to right back and not long later Midleton got there 2nd goal Mike Kelly took advantage off a Mayfield error in defence and it was 2-1 to Midleton. But the mayfield lads never stood back they where right back in there with a bad mistake by the Midleton cetre back, then 5 mins later Adam wilson saves the day for Midleton to make it 3-2 but Midleton made very hard work of this one and the result could have easily been reversed they really have to pull there socks up for the next round if they want to progress in this cup

 

League at home to Blarney United on Monday 19th March
Midleton 0 Blarney United 0

On the last two occations these teams have met the match turned out to be a scoreless draw and this match turned out the exact same, Midleton should have had the game won in the first half Adam wilson came close at one stage but just put the ball wide and there was another chance came in from the left side for Harry wall but he couldnt get the right connection then there was another break and the ball came across to Ciaran Newlands but he put it wide and there where another two or three chances like that to finish the game off but Midleton couldn't find the back of the net Eoin Mitchell had a good first half at centre back as did Cahill Gunning and Mathew Lamb was moved up to Midfield with Sean O'Leary Hayes they work hard in the middle but where finding it hard to get the ball up to the front two. Andrew Nestor work hard all through the game and down the left side.

In the second half Blarney came into the game more and to be honest had most of the play but the Midleton lads kept it under controll at the back with the defence and there inform keeper Conor O'Farrell, Midleton made a couple of changes bringing on Mike Kelly into the Middle and and pushing O'Leary Hayes to the back and bringing on Evan O'Meara up front. As the game went on no one looked like scoring but ten minutes from the end there was a call for a penalty to Midleton but the ref gave a free right on the edge of the box but nothing came of that and the game stayed scoreless, there have been better displays from the lads than this one but overall they did well some players stood out today Andrew Nestor played well as did Harry Wall who held his own and Eoin Mitchell had a good first half and Cahill Gunning worked hard in the second half but man of the match goes to Ciaran Newlands who worked hard at getting back and getting up the right side linking up well with the front two putting together some great passes but there was some guys out there today who where looking tired and i think where up to late the night before.

 

League away to Fermoy on Sunday 4th March
Fermoy 1 Midleton 1

Midleton headed off to Fermoy struggling to get a squad together with a lot of the lads injured or coming down with a bug but they managed with one sub. this was always going to be a tough one for Midleton as we played fermoy at home earlier in the season and came out second best. And it didn't look promising at the start of this match to as we where very slow at starting and look very nervous on the ball but as the game went on Midleton got more into it and started to move the ball about Captian Sean O'Leary Hayes started to command the midfield and Mike Kelly was moving the ball about with confidence, as the game went on Midleton pushed forward, Ciaran Newlands made some great runs down the right side and sent in some lovely crosses where midleton came close on two occations with Harry Wall and Andrew Nestor.

At the other side Fermoy had there chances to but Conner O'Farrell made some good saves and looked confident in his goal all through the game and it stayed that way for the first half. The 2nd half got under way and Midleton started off strong the ball was in the Fermoy half most the game but Fermoy still looked dangerous when they broke and this was the case 10 mins into the 2nd half when they broke down the Middle they put a ball through a gap where the centre backs had left and drove right through to make it 1-0 to the home side. Our two centre backs Cormac Higgins and Mathew Lamb who all through the game played a stormer held there hands up and knew that for a split second they had lost there consentration and thats all it takes a split second when you are playing in this league. But Midleton picked themselve up and got straight back into the game and 5 mins later they get a corner and and the same two players who i\'ve just mentioned put us right back in the game Lamb sends in a cracking cross and Higgin follows the ball as it comes in and throws is full body towards it and headers it into the back of the net there was no one stopping that it was a cracker and 1-1 it was. the game was stopped for 10 mins as hail stones came battering down and the players ran for cover but when the game restarted it never got back to the standerd it was at as the players where cold and damp coming back out so it stayed that way till the finish a good team performance Alan Horgan kept it simple as did Cahill Gunning on the left side O'Leary Hayes work hard all through the game as did Newlands but the man of the match probally the easiest one to give this season was Conner O'Farrell he was top class today just before the whistle went he made a outstanding save he went 50/50 with there striker and dived down at his feet to block the ball there was no fear what so ever there is not many keepers at his age you will see making saves like that.

 

Local cup away to Kanturk on Saturday 25th February
Kanturk 0 Midleton 10

Midleton made the long journey to Kanturk for the this local cup tie not knowing what to expect from the home side. But from the start this game turned out to be a one sided contest with Adam wilson getting 3 goals in the first half followed with a goal from Ciaran Newlands to make the score 4-0 at half time.

In the 2nd half Midleton moved around a few players with Mathew Lamb moving into Midfield and dictating the play and setting up no fewer than 6 of the goals with a stunning performance, In the 2nd half Harry wall added 2 to the tally and Evan O'Meara scoring a hatrick and just before the end Andrew Nestor added to the score sheet to make it 10. A great display from the lads but they know there will be better teams ahead of them before the season ends But still you don't get goals not unless you work for them and our lads did that today man of the match goes to Mathew Lamb.

 

National Cup home to St Kevin's Boys A on Saturday 11th February
Midleton 0
St Kevin's Boys A 4
Midleton where drawn at home in the last 32 of the National Cup to last years winners and probally the best team in the country at that age group at the moment. But for the first ten mins they showed that they could put it up against the best they met for every tackle and challenge as equal as the St Kevin boys and at one stage they came close to taking the lead when Adam Wilson broke free and headed towards goal. From the left side as he got near goal he took a shot and it just went wide it was so close, but after that it was all St Kevins who had the play but the Midleton lads closed them down and tried to stop them play football as much as possible but there football at times was a pleasure to watch they just kept possession of the ball so well that Midleton where chasing it all the time and even when Midleton had the ball St Kevins close them down quick and put the lads under pressure. But still Midleton where making it hard for St Kevins to create any chances the boys in the midfield Mike Kelly and Tommy O'Connell work there socks of as did captain Sean O'Leary Hayes who had a tough time marking there very talented number 6 and the two wide players Ciaran Newlands and Andrew Nestor never stop all through the first half they where kept busy defending St Kevin's wide men and making the runs forward when Midleton made a break but ten minutes to half time St Kevins made the break through they broke down the left hand side and crossed in a great ball and there striker was there to head a great goal into the back of the net and it stayed that way to half time.

The 2nd half got underway and Midleton where looking for that break to get back into the game but to be honest it was just not going to happen because St kevins just had to much experience and as the game went on and the more they chased the ball the more tired they got they really work there socks off and then 5 mins into the game St Kevins got a 2nd and really after that it just killed Midleton chances as the game went on they got a third. Midleton then started to make some changes and started to bring on some fresh legs as the lads had worked so hard Evan O'Meara replaced Newlands who had a hard shift down the right side and Harry Wall replaced Wilson who was up front on his own today. St Kevins got 4th goal and it was all over at that stage Midleton then used all subs and the game finished 0-4.

Midleton can be proud of the way they set about this game and finished it they never gave up from start to finish and made it very difficult for St kevins but take nothing away from St Kevins they where on a different level they where fantastic to watch and Midleton will not come up against another team as good as that again. The whole team where fantastic for Midleton today but the two centre backs stood out for me today Cormac Higgins and Mathew Lamb they where under so much pressure from the St Kevin lads coming forward
and our goal keeper Conor O'Farrell looked so confident in goals today he commanded his box so well another great game to his list.

 

League at away to Everton on 10th December
Everton 2
Midleton 2 
Midleton started off the match the stronger team and came close to scoring just a few minutes into the game when Ciaran Newlands playayed a ball across goals it came to Evan O'Meara but the ball just slid of his boot and went wide, but this gave Midleton the confidence to push forward more and it wasn't long before Adam Wilson had a chance his shot was on target but the keeper made a fine save.

It was like this all through the first half with midletonmaking most of the breaks with some great runs down the flanks from Andrew Nestor who had a great first half and Newlands on the other side Midleton where in control in the middle of the park with Mike Kelly and Sean O'Leary commanding all around that area but when Everton did make a break they looked dangerous and they came close a couple of times Harry wall who played right back made some good tackles to keep Everton at bay.But 20 mins into the game after all Midletons hard work they let slip at the back and Everton took advantage and put the ball in the back of the net and its 1-0 Everton and it stayed that way for the first half.

Midleton started the 2nd half as strong as they did the first half but they just could not find the net and then
10 mins into the game Midleton made some changes bringing on Eoin Mitchell for Evan O'Meara and taking off Cormac Higgins and pushing Sean O'Leary to right back and bringing on Tommy O'Connell to midfield and the 2mins later Midleton get a corner and Mathew Lamb sends a great ball a cross goal its flicked over by Eoin Mitchell at the front post and its picked up by Adam wilson who half vollys it into the back of the net great goal and its 1-1 and at the this point Midleton where on fire the midfeild with Tommy O'Connell where working well with the wide players and they where putting some great balls accross and at times where cutting across and into the box and Newlands came close with a shot just inside the box but it just went wide but 5 mins later Adam Wilson made it 2-1 with a fine taken goal again, he really is playing his best football to date at the moment. as the game went on Midleton looked comfortable and at this stage 10 mins to go Andrew Nestor who had a great game his best in a while was subbed and replaced with Kevin Higgins. Everton never gave up and there reward came with 5 mins to go when again sloppy defending at the back left two Everton players on there own and they took full advatage and made it 2-2.

The score stayed that way to the end there where some good players out there to day for Midleton Harry Wall had a good game as did Mike kelly in the Midfield also Andrew Nestor played a blinder and as said before Adam Wilson is on fire but for this match the man of the match goes to Ciaran Newlands for his all round play he never stopped all day another player who is just getting better every week

 

National Cup away to Lakewood on 26th November
Lakewood 1 Midleton 3

Midleton went to Lakewood looking for revenge, at this stage in the competition last year Midleton where beating by there opponents and went back to Midleton feeling let down by some bad refereeing disitions that where made on the day.
As the game got underway Midleton looked a bit nervous and that showed as Midleton went down 1-0 after 10 mins, but after that Midleton started to take control of the match they played with five at the back and for spells that invited Lakewood to come forward a bit more and that opened up the Lakewood Midfield and defence and Midleton started to take advantage of this where Sean O'Leary had full control in the midle of the park and this is how the first goal came around. Midleton won the ball in the middle of the park and push it up to Adam Wilson who makes a great run towards goals and smashes it into the back of the net and its 1-1 this gave Midleton more confidence they where great to watch but Lakewood had there chances to but only for Conor O'Farrell who pulled of three or four top class saves he had a massive game to day and just seems to be getting better all the time as did the whole of the back line.

At half time Midleton took off John O'Dwyer who played his first game for the magpies and replace him with Eoin Mitchell who had a solid game at the back this is when Midleton really started to trouble Lakewood Mike Kelly and O'Leary started to get balls moving out wide and Ciaran Newlands started to take advatage of the space he was getting on the right sending some lovelly crosses across the goals and 10 mins into the 2nd half Midleton get there second goal and again its Adam wilson who was up front on his own for the whole of the match another well taken goal and only 5 mins later Andrew Nestor could have made it three but it just went past the post they had a few chances like that Wilson had two chances as did Newlands and Kelly at this stage it was all Midleton as Lakewood where throwing every body forward for a equliser midleton where catching them on the break and just before the end Adam wilson was there again for a well deserved hatrick a great team performance from the lads every one was brilliant they fought for every ball.

For man of the match this is a hard one as I said they where all great and all played a part but Adam Wilson took his three goals superbly like a striker should and there was Sean O'Leary honestly he just never stops he never let the big Lakewood midfielder near the ball and there was Alan Horgan who I have not mentioned yet he played a roll in front of the front four he had a great game to as did Conor O'Farrell who made saves that kept us in the game and Mathew Lamb never put a foot wrong all through the game so these players share it on the day just in fron of the other lads a well deserved victory and looking forward to the next round.

 

League away to Douglas Hall on Saturday 19th November
Douglas Hall 1 Midleton 1
Being one of the few games to go ahead on Saturday morning due to the dreadful weather this turn out to be a very entertaining game for anybody who botherd to turn up to watch it.
Midleton started of this game with great energy and right from the start they had a chance to go a head when Michael Kelly put through a ball to Adam Wilson with only the keeper to beat he struck it well but the Douglas Hall keeper Pat McSweeny made a great save and he kept that performance up right through the game all through the first half it was all Midleton the players definetly stepped it up for this match the back four where never under pressure, and anytime Douglas Hall did get forward Mathew Lamb and Cormac higgins who played a blinder had it well under controll the centre midfield Sean O'Leary and Kelly commanded there area with style but still with all the creative play and chances they made its hard to believe the Midleton lads came off at half time without putting the ball in the back off the net.

The 2nd half got under way and the Midleton lads started off the way they finished the firt half attacking from all sides with Ciaran Newlands making some great run down the right and sending some lovely balls across the box as did Andrew Nestor on the left side and the forwards Wilson and Evan O'Meara linked up well with the midfield players.
It was all Midleton for the first 10 mins they must have had at least five good chance in that time only to be denied by the Douglas Hall keeper he was outstanding but Midleton kept the pressure on and from this they got a corner the ball came into the box there was a bit of a scramble and the ball falls to Higgins he takes a strike and the ball goes to goal they try to block it on the goal line but it just passes over the line and Midleton finally take a well deserved lead. But the celebrations where short lived 5 Mins later Douglas Hall get the eqaliser there wasn't much the defence or the keeper Conor O'Farrell could do as it was a great strike. Midleton made a change bring on Harry Wall for Evan O'Meara up front, Midleton kept the pressure on right to the end just mins to go and Wilson had a shot that was blocked it then came to Newlands he took a shot and again it was blocked but that was the way it went right through this game for Midleton loads of chances but just couldn't
get it into the back of the net which was alot down to some excellent goalkeeping from the Douglas Hall man.

A great team performance from midleton what we have been asking for all season but there luck just wasn't there on the day to take all three points. As said a great team display from all Alan Horgan and Cahill Gunning done what was ask of them to as did the keeper O'Farrell but for this one Cormac Higgin gets man of the match.

Midleton started off this game with having to make two changes just before kick off due to injurys, so for the the first 5 mins they where trying to get it together with Ryan Dunleavy going into the midfield a position he is not to familiar with but he settle in well and Cahill Gunning came in at the left back. It wasn't to long into the game when Midleton found the net they where awarded a corner and as the ball was crossed in a Fermoy defender knocked it back out, Midleton pick the ball up again and put it back into the box there was a bit of a scramble but the ball comes to Cormac Higgins who has his back to goal he turns his body and strikes the ball at the same time and into the back of the net it goes good goal and great sharpness from Higgins who is getting better every game he plays.
As the game went on you could see Fermoy coming into the game more and during the game Fermoy had a few corners and they where causing lots of problems for Midleton and it was from this they got the equaliser the ball comes in and it is headed out to the centre of the box and a unmarked Fermoy player is there to blast it into the net good goal but again Midleton are always told to have a man just at the edge of the box for that type of thing happening and he went wondering and leaves the man unmarked.

As the 2nd half got under way Midleton put Alan Horgan into the Centre midfield and brought Ryan Dunleavy back to right back Midleton started to spread the ball more Horgan was getting more ball out wide to Ciaran Newlands who made some fine runs down the line and was getting balls across the goal and it was from this link up play with the midfield that the Midleton 2nd goal came the ball breaks through the centre out to the left side and Adam Wilson picks it up he plays it onto Mike Kelly who puts it across the goals it comes to Newlands who takes a strike the shot is blocked and goes straight out to the middle of the field about 25 yards and Alan Horgan lets a flyer go high into the air and right into the top of the goals great goal. As the game went on Fermoy never gave up and they kept pressing for the equaliser and it wasn't long before it came again from a corner and then they got a third from a corner again.

Midleton gave away three points that where badley needed today and every goal that fermoy scored was from a mistake from defending that the players have worked on and been told about in training and in the dressing room before the match, and till the lads start listening and hold the position they are told to take during the match and while defending set pieces they are going to keep giving away easy goals apart from that the lads gave there all its just these small mistakes that holding them back, felt sorry for Wilson today who didn't get much ball up to him, Sean O'Leary had another powerfull game as did Horgan and Newlands who is getting sharper and bringing a tough side to his game but there is one man who stood out more than any one today regardless the result and that is Cahill Gunning he was absolutely superb a great game well done Cahill. 

     

National Cup at home to Tramore Athletic on 5th November
Midleton 2  Tramore Athletic 1

As the sun set across Knockgriffin on a fine saturday morning the magpies welcomed Tramore Athletic to Midleton for the national cup. The match started off very slow as Midleton tried to find there feet, Tramore where the under dogs coming from a division below Midleton but at no time during the game did that show they match them all over the park and made it hard for the home side to play football.

Midleton had most of the ball but at the same time wasted most of it and it just seem to be one of those days till 17 mins gone the ball broke through to Evan O'Meara who took it towards the keeper and took his shot and into the corner it went 1-0 Midleton and a well taken goal. Midleton fought away hard with Sean O'Leary workin away in the midfield and Mike Kelly trying to get balls out wide and up to the forwards and at the back they seemed to be keeping Tramore at bay Mathew Lamb playing another solid game and Cormac Higgins working hard beside him, but all through the game midleton where very sloppy on the ball there passing there was no pace on the ball there clearing was all pannicky and lots of slicing and Tramore where getting lots of advantage from this and it wasn't long before Tramore made them pay Midleton played a ball across the centre of the pitch with no pace on the ball and no player to pick it up but only a Tramore player he make's quick advatage of the Midleton slip up put the ball through to there left wide player who runs on into the box with no Midleton player putting any pressure on him and he wacks it into the back of the net a well taken goal from a bad mistake in midfield and midleton backs caught out of position again 1-1. Midleton had a chance before half time Harry Wall was clear on goal he took his shot the ball was on target but the keeper made the save and 1-1 it stayed.

The 2nd half got under way and Midleton looked a bit sharper with Ciaran Newlands making some good runs down the right and getting some balls through and across goal and at the back Alan Horgan kept things very simple breaking up any balls comming down the right hand side but as midleton where bringing the game to Tramore they could not break there well organized defence and Tramore had there chances too only for some first class goalkeeping from Kieran O'Rielly the game stayed level. It looked like it was going to extra time untill 4 mins from time Mike Kelly picks the ball up in the midfield lays a first class ball through to Evan O'Meara who takes the ball up just out side the box goes at goal and bang into the back of the net another superd goal and what a ball from Kelly who was having a hard time today but when its working for him he's superb and his reading of the game is first class and 2-1 it stayed. every player worked there socks off today there no question about that O'Leary has some engine he never gave up once, Lamb played well at the back too as did Horgan Newlands had another solid game too, but theres no question who was man of the match Evan O'Meara he could have had a hatrick he was unlucky 5 mins before his 2nd. as was said before the great thing was that everybody gave there all but there where things that just didn't work to day with the whole team as a unit especially there confidence on the ball and there passing and there positonal play but they are all things that can be worked on the most important thing is they won today and are in the next round and it wasn't there best performance by a long way but if they are going to progress into the next round they have to step it up.

 

League away to Bandon on Saturday 29th October
Bandon 1 Midleton 2

Midleton where on the road early as they travelled to Bandon for a 10.30 kick off as as they arrived there the referee was inspecting the pitch to see if the match was playable.
The weather was shocking heavy rain falls and the pitch was bad enough but in fairness to the ref he ask both clubs there opinion and they where happy for the match to go a head as long as the weather didn't get any worst and espiecaly after Midleton had made the journey.

The game started of slow as the players got used to the ball and the conditions of the pitch but the Midleton lads seemed to be the one's who started to dominate the game first Mike Kelly and Cormac Higgins breaking it up in the midfield and bringing others into play, any breaks Bandon where making in the first half where looked after at the back making great clearances from Eoin Mitchell and Mathew Lamb who both looked so comfortable on the ball all through the match. As the game went on Midleton attacked more, there where some great moves coming up the side with Ciaran Newlands linking up well with Higgins and the two forwards Evan O'Meara and Adam Wilson as he sent some lovely balls across goal. But the first goal came from a corner M.Lamb sent agreat ball across goal and as the away side attacked the ball it came to Andrew Nestor who made contact with his head and into the net and the away side are 0-1 up after 25 mins. Straight from the start Midleton keep the pressure up and they came close again when Newlands crossed a ball across the goal and it fell to kelly but it didn't connect right and just went wide.

As the 2nd half got under way Midleton made a change bringing on Harry Wall For Evan O'Meara up front for some fresh legs as ground was heavy and taking its toll on the players as Wall settle in Midleton found there selfs defending the first 5 mins but the back four where solid Ryan Dunleavy fought hard on the right side as did Alan Horgan on the left side and the keeper Conner O'Farrell had another solid game comanding his box and getting more confident each game. But 7 mins into the game Midleton broke from there own box M.Lamb passed a lovely ball through the middle of the park A.Wilson picks it up and makes the break towards goal only the keeper to beat he try's to lob it over the keeper but he gets a slight touch and the ball dribbles towards goal and Wilson never gives up and chases on the ball to blast it into the back of the net a good goal and Wilson seems to be getting the form back that he had last season. 15mins later Midleton let Bandon back into the game with a ball that had scrambled into the box Midleton failed to clear it and it went over the line. Midleton where still making chances and chasing the 3rd goal but for the last 5 mins they defended well as a unit there where some tired legs out there near the end Newlands done a tremedous job tracking back all day and Kelly and Higgins worked there socks off helping out the defence when needed as did Nestor out on the left, H.Wall worked hard and linked up well with Wilson up front in the 2nd half. But the two centre backs played a great game and Eoin Mitchell just scrapes in with man of the match for his effort all through the game a great team performance they really are starting to get there form back and if they can keep this going and play to there potental each week they can be contenders for this league.

 

League away to Mayfield United on Saturday 22nd October
Mayfield United 1 Midleton 2

Midleton headed off to take on top of the table Mayfield on what can only be described as a horrendous day of non stop rain. Both teams started off well with Midleton having a slight advantage playing with the slope on the field and as the wind was coming in from the side off the field that was not really a advantage to any side, but it was Midleton who had most of the first half with most of the the ball being played in the middle of the park.

There wasn't many chances as both teams fought hard for the ball in the middle of the park but Midleton had a chance 12 mins into the game when the ball broke out to Ciaran Newlands outside the box he layed it off to Sean O'Leary but as O'Leary went to take his shot he was closed down and then 5 mins later Midleton break again this time Mike Kelly wins the ball in the midfield he sees the gap and lays the ball through the gap between Mayfield's two centre backs and Adam Wilson breaks away with only the keeper to beat as he comes towards the keeper he picks his spot into the top corner and Midleton where 0-1 up and a great finish. As the game went on the rain got worst and there was a time when you could hardly see in front of you with the rain battering down and you are wondering if the ref is going to allow the game to carry on, but he did and Midleton kept at it with the defence having a solid game Mathew lamb and Cormac Higgins kept things tidy at the back giving Mayfield very little chances and Ryan Dunleavy play well at the back giving very little away, Eoin Mitchell was taken off 5 mins before half time carrying a injury and replaced with Evan O'Meara. As the game was coming near to halftime 30 mins to be exact Midleton got position of the ball in the midfield this time it was O'Leary he broke away kicked the ball up over the defence and Wilson chased onto it again very simalar to the first move with only the keeper to beat he blast it into the back of the net and its 0-2 Midleton.

Midleton knew that Mayfield where going to have alot more ball in this half as it was there turn with the advantage but Midleton fought hard and closed down Mayfeild as they pushed forward Midleton goalkeeper Conner O'Farrel played a stormer he looked confident with any ball that came near him but half way through the 2nd half Mayfield got the goal they where pressing for. But after that Midleton dug in and fought for every ball made there breaks when they had to but every player played a part in defending the last 15mins. Cahill Gunning relaced Dunleavy for the last 10 mins and has the players waited for the refs whisle to blow u could see every won had given there all Kelly never stoped all day Higgins and lamb had great games Nestor on the left worked away out wide Newlands worked his sock off as he was invlolved in most of the game but Sean O'Leary was outstanding. He marked his man out of the game but for this game there can only be one man of the match and that has to go to Adam Wilson for his two goals he did not have much do do as he played up front for most of the game on his own but when called apon he done what was asked of him and when his chances came he took them and took them first class

 

League at home to Strand United on 8th October
Midleton 0  Strand United
1
Another tough game for midleton at home to Strand Utd. It took a while for both teams to settle down in this game but as the game went on Midleton where the team that looked like scoring and the only team who where crateing any chances.
Mike Kelly got the ball inside the box and straight at goal he took his shot but it went straight over the bar another day and that would have burst the net. Then 5 mins later Midleton break, again this time down the left the ball come across the goal thers a bit of a scramble and the ball comes to Ciaran Newlands at the back post he does all the hard work gets the ball under control there is a defender in front he side steps him skillfully and only the keeper to beat he hits it with his left foot and just puts it past the post Midleton should have been two up at this stage. Strand at this point where out of the game they hadn 't had one chance at goal yet, then not long before half time Midleton break again with another great chance this time the ball breaks to top goal scorer Adam Wilson through the middle of the park he makes the break with only the keeper to beat surely this time he comes close to the keeper and just before the keeper comes to make contact he takes his shot and over the bar it goes another chance gone and Wilson who has scored a lot of his goals from that exact position in the past and will probally score another ten this season from that area could not believe his miss. But that was Midleton all through the first half all the ball crateing lots of chances but just couldn't finish them.

As the 2nd half got under way Strand came into the game a bit more especially in the middle of the park and Midleton seem to fall out of it and it was not long before Strand made Midleton pay for it The ball breaks out at the edge of the box and a Strand player takes a shot straight at goal and straight at the keeper Kieran O'Rielly he puts his hands up makes contact with the ball but the ball just brushes past his hands and Strand take the lead a bad error from the Midleton keeper and it stayed that way for the remainder of the game. Another wake up call for the Midleton boys who should have had this game won and finished in the first half and they just never came out in the 2nd half.   

 

League at home to Ringmahon Rangers on 1st October
Midleton 4  Ringmahon Rangers
3
Midleton got off to a flying start, just 3mins into the game Midleton made a Break Down the left side of the pitch Adam Wilson gets the ball just outside the box and lays it back to Mike Kelly who strikes it first time from 25 yards and into the top corner to put the home side one up. As the game went on Midleton pushed  forward commanding the midfield with Kelly and Higgins winning most of the ball and Ciaran Newlands making runs down the right  and putting some good balls into the box and at the other side Andrew Nestor worked hard chasing down the ball putting the away side under pressure. But as the game went on Midleton fell a sleep at the back and let Ringmahon back into the game with a soft goal. Midleton broke forward just before halftime and got a corner Mathew lamb Crossed in a great ball and Cormac Higgins was there to head it into the back of the net and 26 mins gone and Midleton are 2-1 up.

As the 2nd half got under way Midleton came out fighting and 10 min into the game Kelly gets another cracker the ball breaks 30 yards out in the centre and sees that the keeper is of his line he runs at it and strikes it high and lobs it  right over the keeper into the back of the net 3-1 to Midleton . You would think it is all over at that stage but 3 mins later Ringmahon boot the ball high into the Midleton box and keeper Conner O\'Farrell comes out to meet it but he miss judges the bounce and goes over his head and into the net and it\'s 3-2. Then  5 mins later Midleton are back in control a ball is put through the centre and Adam Wison runs on to it with just the keeper to beat and takes his chance well and it\'s 4-2 But Ringmahon never gave up and 5 mins from the end they got a third again bad defending and Midleton had to hold on to the very end.
Midleton fell asleep at the back today and they can count them selfs lucky to take all 3 points , they are there own worst enemy at times as they had this game twice but twice they let Ringmahon back in to the game.

But at the end of the day they got the. 3 points and that is what its all about today Wilson had agood game he worked hard chasing balls down As did Mike Kelly shivers the man of the match for his overall all play and two great goals.

 

National Cup at home to Corinthians Boys A on 24th September
Midleton 3  Corinthians Boys A 2

Midleton got of to a great start only 4 mins into the game they took the lead Adam Wilson pulls the ball back outside the box to Mike Kelly who chipped it into the top corner a great goal. Midleton really never took there foot off the peddle from that goal they where solid all over the pitch and I think Corinthians where a bit taken back the way Midleton set out there stall from the start, the two centre backs Mathew lamb and Owen Mitchell Where solid out and Alan Horgan who played just in front off the centre backs stopped Corinthians breaking into the box. Midleton where on the break again when they where awarded a free kick just inside Corinthians half lamb stepped up to take it and saw Adam Wilson make the run and floated it into th box and Wilson who was playing up front on his own today made the run and the connection and slotted it into the net and 14 mins into the game and Midleton are 2-0 up.

But the celebrations where short lived as Corinthian got a free kick out side the penalty box, great free kick there was nothing the Midleton keeper Conner O'Farrell could do it was straight in to the top corner. But Midleton got straight back into it and where taking the game to the away side Evan O\'Meara  and Kelly where fighting hard in the middle of the park and Andrew Nestor linked up well on the left midfield and it was from this play the 3rd goal came , Nestor came down the left crossed over the ball into the box and Ciaran Newlands Picked it up got the ball under control and blasted it into the back of the net great goal and great first Half for Midleton.

As the 2nd half got under way Midleton came out with the same attitude as the first half they gave there all and as the game went on they tightened up more at the back and that probally let Corinthians into the game a bit more and 10 mins to go the Midleton lads gave a sloppy goal away just through pure tiredness and a bit panicking in there play But for the last ten minutes they gave everything to hold on to there win against a premier side team, it was a first class team performance from every one of them but it must be said Wilson done a great job on his own up front and Newlands never stopped  running all day his tracking back was first class and the centre backs where brillaint and Horgan who was put into a new roll made a massive contribution to the team but the Man of the match goes to Mathew lamb he just stood out all day this position that Mathew has been playing (centre back) has been questioned A few times but I truelly believe this is Mathews position for his progression in the future of his football career he just reads the game so well from there

 

League away to Blarney United on Saturday 17th September
Blarney United 0 Midleton 0 

Another tough game for Midleton as they travelled to Blarney. The last time the two met it ended 0-0 and this game turned out the exact same score, but the last time they met it was even all through the game and the score was justified. Not this time as Midleton should have walked away with all three points. All through the first have it was Midleton doing all the attacking and Adam Wilson and Evan O’Meara had a couple of chances to put Midleton into the lead but the just didn’t come off and it was like that for Midleton all through the 1st half.

The 2nd half was a bit more even as Midleton where playing against the wind. There where two chances for Midleton in the 2nd half with one being from O’Meara who was straight on goal. He took his strike but it just went wide. Over all Midleton’s play was very good and if they can just take some of these chances and make them into goals they will have no one to fear this season. A good team performance and a very hard decision to name a man of the match because they all worked very hard and for that reason they all get man of the match.

 

League at home to Everton on Saturday 10th September
Midleton 4 Everton 1

Midleton went into this game knowing that they needed to come out of this with three points after losing there last two games and that is exactly what they did. Right from the start they had control of the game they commanded the midfield with Sean O’Leary and Mike Kelly and you had Andrew Nestor out on the left side making some great runs down the line sending in some fine crosses for the forwards to run onto. It wasn’t long before Midleton had there first chance with a free kick out side the box. Nestor took the free kick and a good strike it was it, walloped of the crossbar unlucky, but it wasn’t that long before Midleton got there first goal. It was 13 mins into the game, a ball that broke from the midfield out to left side the cross comes in and Adam Wilson was there to put it into the back of the net. Today Wilson looked a lot sharper all through the game and that can only be good news for Midleton. As the game went on it was really all Midleton in the first half, Everton didn’t really threat Midleton at all and that was down to the defence. They had a fantastic first half, very solid at the back Mathew Lamb in particular.

As the second half got under way, Midleton where playing against the wind so they really had to keep tight at the back as they could not afford to let Everton back into this game but saying that it was still Midleton who where taking the game to Everton. There was moments when Midleton where going forward theie passing movement was first class. O’Leary put some lovely balls out the right to Ciaran Newlands who was sending them through to Evan O’Meara or Wilson but still they couldn’t get that 2nd goal. That was until 9 mins into the 2nd half, O’Leary charges forward from the midfield puts the ball through to Wilson in the box who then passes it to O’Meara and all he had to do was stick it into the back of the net,  2-0 Midleton. The celebrations didn’t last long a couple of minutes later Everton pulled one back to make it 2-1 as the Midleton defence for the first time
in this match got caught out, but Midleton got back into it straight away and 5 mins later Midleton are awarded a penalty. Lamb steps up to take it and sends it low into the keepers right side 3-1 Midleton. Midleton had still a lot of work to do yet as they where playing against the wind and Everton were not giving up but every one of the lads at the back gave there all Eoin Mitchell worked his socks off and so did Cormac Higgins and Alan Horgan and Newlands was running all day tracking back every time, Midleton pushed forward at every opportunity looking for that 4th goal to put the game to bed and 5 mins from the end there work paid off with Nestor putting his name to the score sheet, being at the right place at the right time 4-1 Midleton. Midleton deserved there first win of the season and the players gave their all. Adam Wilson looked good today and Andrew Nestor played well as did Sean O’Leary and Mike Kelly and the whole team as a unit where fantastic but man of the match goes to Mathew Lamb who never stopped and was solid all through the game.

 

League away to Temple Utd on Saturday 3rd September
Temple Utd 3 Midleton 1
Midleton had another tough day against a strong Temple side. They started of well and had most of the ball in the first 10 mins, at that stage it looked like Midleton could come away with something from this game.

They had a couple of breaks, one with Andrew Nestor breaking down the left hand side, right down to the by-line and crossed it in for Ciaran Newlands who was running in at the back post. He slid into it and it just went wide, hitting the side netting but not long after that Temple came forward. There number 6 who was a really big lad and heads above all the Midleton boys and had football to go with it was by far the man of the match and he was without doubt the difference between the two teams. He got the ball just out side the box he took it to the side of one player and he saw a gap and took the shot and 12mins gone and Temple where one up. Midleton where still in the game they where plugging away with the midfield lads trying to get balls through the middle up to the Evan O’Meara and Adam Wilson but this wasn’t working. As the boys at the back for Temple had this worked out and they weren’t small lads either and where well able to win most of the balls coming through. As the game went on Temple where starting to win control in the middle of the park and 22 mins in to the game they break forward out to the right side Midleton fail to clear the ball and it breaks to there number six again he beats two or three Midleton players right into the penalty area and takes a shot and its 2-0 to Temple bad defending again from Midleton and to many players ball watching.

As the 2nd half got under way Midleton made a few changes. They brought on Alan Horgan for Cahill Gunning and Ryan Dunleavy and moved Eion Mitchell up front from defence and took off O’Meara just to try and mix it a bit with there defence with Mitchell being the biggest lad in the team and put Mathew Lamb back to centre defence to tighten up at the back and Sean O’Leary into the middle. The game had only gone 1min and Midleton where putting Temple under pressure with Mitchell winning a lot of ball in the air and then 5 mins into
the game, the ball that Midleton had been looking for all day breaks through the defence and no better man to run onto it than Wilson. He connects with it off the ground and into the back of the net 2-1 and Wilson last season's top scorer gets his first goal of the season, this should have been the changing point for Midleton. They had maybe two chances after this but to no avail Temple went on to score a 3rd and really the last 15 mins was all Temple who where putting on the pressure and the Midleton goalkeeper Conner O’Farrell had a really busy 2nd half.

Midleton where beat today by a stronger team there is no doubt about it, but we still lost goals by mistakes that we have been talking about before the match and working on at training. Mistakes that are easy to rectify and as soon as the players can start taking these points into the game with them the better because as I said earlier there was one difference today and that was there number six. In the 2nd half there was time when we stop him when the lads done what was ask of them but there is still moments when they don’t keep there concentration and that is when the mistake happen and the chances are not taken if they can get that together we have a chance in this league. The lads never gave up at any point and they have the football but sometimes
we are looking for that bit of luck that goes with it. Man of the match today for Midleton was Cormac Higgins he fought for every ball and it must be said the referee had a outstanding game something we don’t see to often at this standard.   

 

League at home to Douglas Hall on Sunady 27th August
Midleton 0 Douglas Hall 4

Midleton kicked off there new season in the 1st division and learned a valuable lesson in football that when you go up a division.

The standard is a lot better and when you make a mistake nine times out of ten you will pay for it and that is what happened to Midleton today. The score doesn’t really tell how this match went because it was Midleton who took the game to Douglas Hall all through the first half with Mathew Lamb and Mike Kelly commanding the midfield and you had Ciaran Newlands making some great runs down the right and getting great crosses into the box.

You also had Adam Wilson and Evan O’Meara making runs up front and getting a few shots at goal but nothing
was getting past the Douglas Hall keeper except one but it hit the crossbar and down on to the line and bounce out and that’s how it went for Midleton all through the first half, but Douglas Hall were a different story there wasn’t much attacks coming from them in the first half but when they did they scored and the first was a shot outside the box that caught the Midleton keeper of his line and the second came from a corner and the Midleton defence was all over the place and before you know it Douglas Hall where two nil up.

As the 2nd half got under way things never got any better for Midleton they kept attacking Andrew Nestor breaking down the left side and linking up with Wilson in the box but nothing was falling right for them, as the second half went on Douglas hall got more confident in their play and where starting to attack more, the ball goes for a corner to Douglas Hall and again the Midleton defence are caught ball watching as the ball is headed into the back of the net. Then 10 minutes later Douglas strike again with the help of sloppy defending from Midleton and that is how it stayed till the whistle went.

A really bad day for the Midleton lads but there where some good play out there from some of the lads Eion Mitchell especially who had a great game but overall Douglas Hall deserved there three points because they took there chances when they came along and that can’t be said for Midleton and hopefully if anything good comes out of this game is that Midleton realise that when you make mistakes you will pay but more importantly when other teams make mistakes you must take those chances and make them pay.
