League at home to Kinsale on Sunday 15th March 2015
Midleton 1 Kinsale 0

A pleasure to play on a decent pitch after the recent bogs the lads had to put up with. Midleton won 1-0 with a fine goal from Matty O'Reilly. It was a lovely strike on the half volley and was worthy to win any game. There were pleanty of good performers out there today, Matty O'Reilly, Jack Lamb, Ronan Hayes and our keeper Matthew O'Connor were the pick of the bunch. Matty just gets the nod for man of the match after the magnificent goal. Overall it was an excellent team performance.

League Away to Mallow on Sunday 8th March 2015
Mallow 2 Midleton 1

With a carbon copy game to that at Macroom, muddy pitch included. The only difference was the Midleton goalscorer, Abdul Backinson. Another first half lead cancelled by two second half goals was rough justice for the Magpies. Midleton player of the game with his best performance to date was Sam O'Reilly

League away to Macroom on Sunday 22nd Febuary 2015
Macroom 2 Midleton 1

Report: In the first half Mildeton weren't passing he ball quick enough and got caught on the break by Macroom.A slip by Ronan Hayes allowed the Macroom No. 10 slot cooly passed Matthew O'Connor.With ten minutes to go before the break, Phillips gave a sublime pass to Matty O'Reilly.O'Reilly then going past three players to get to the edge of the box whip the ball in and with a deflection of a defender fell kindly for Eabhan to tap in.1-1.In the second half,Midleton played much better.Passing the ball quickly and effectively,winning 50/50 balls and pressiing the oppostion.All that hard work fell down the drain as Macroom scored with 15 minutes remaining.With the introduction of Fionn Duggan and Abdul Bakinson the game came more to life..Midleton pressed and pressed but just couldn't get the equaliser.Unlucky lads,but well played.

League at Mayfield V Mayfield on Sunday 1st Febuary 2015
Mayfield 1 Midleton 0

Two teams "dogging it", in a midfield tussle just about sums up the game. Neither team looked like scoring and with Midleton down to ten me due to injuries and sickness for the last twenty minutes it was going to be tough. Midleton edged the first half with Sam O'Reilly at his best down the wing with some neat footwork. On the other flank Fionn Duggan put in some great effort. Craig Healy and Ronan Hayes always looked comfortable in defense also. The second half saw Richard Phillips running the midfield with power and some lovely passing. The turning point came when Ronan Hayes had to leave the pitch injured and with the subs bench empty it was going to be a battle. With five minutes to go Mayfield made the most of a defensive mix up and scored the winner. Tough on the lads who put in loads of effort. Today Midletons man of the match goes to Richard Phillips

Local Cup at Home V Carrigiline Hibs on Sunday 18th January 2015
Midleton 0
Carrigiline Hibs 0
Midleton U14,s came up against a resolute Carrigaline team who on the day defended excellently. The lads tried as hard as they could but could not quite find the final ball to finish off the opposition. If it were a boxing match Midleton would of won on points but until you put the ball in the back of the net it counts for nothing. The match itself didn't have too many goal scoring chances with Eabhan de Barra coming closest by nicking the post with a second half shot. After extra time and penalties the Carrigaline team won the day, that's the way penalty shoot out are! Midletons player of the day came from the defenders so its a joint award to Adam Meade, David Scanlon, Jack Lamb and Gary Carroll

League at Home V Blarney on Sunday 11th January 2015
Midleton 2
Blarney 1
Midleton put 3 league wins together for the first time this season and a well deserved victory it was. Defensively they were in top form with second placed Blarney limited to only a few shots on goal. With the wind at their backs Midleton dominated the first half with Eabhan de Barra coming close a couple of times. The last eight minutes sew two goals going in, one from a corner from de Barra and a beauty from Matty O'Reilly.

H/T 2-0
Blarney as expected used the long ball in the second half but the four backs, Adam Meade, Gary Carroll, Craig Healy and Ronan Hayes were magnificent. Carroll and Meade were often the start of the attacks putting pressure on Blarneys wing backs so pushing the Blarney team back. In midfield Sam Querke and Richard Phillips were excellent. Midleton looked comfortable until the referee ordered a penalty for Blarney which made the last three minutes very nervy. But to be fair only a win for the Magpies would of been the only just result.
Man of the match today was a tough decision with Carroll and Meade excellent defensively and Phillips and Querke dominant in the middle along with Matty O'Reilly in top form. But for the coaches today the award goes to Ronan Hayes, he did nothing fancy but when the ball came to him he challenged and won the ball and played his passes with intelligence. Great game Ronan.

League at Home V Corinthians A on Sunday 7th December 2014
Midleton 1
Corinthians A 0
Two wins in a row for Midleton u14's. A hard fought victory over Corinthians with a first half penalty scored by Eabhan de Barra. A tight game with not too many chances for either team was won by Midleton after the lads put on a gritty, determined display. It wasn't easy as Corinthians never gave up and Midleton had to be on their toes for the entire game. There was a number of good performers out there today, but it was the defense that won the day with the back four looking very solid in Jack Lamb, Craig Healy, Adam Meade and Paul Connaughton all performing well along with another good goalkeeping performance from Mathew O'Connor.Today's man of the match came from a defender, Craig Healy.He put in a captains performance and kept the defense solid. Well done Craig.

League at Togher V Everton on Sunday 31st November 2014
Everton 2 Midleton 3

After last weeks rather off performance it was Midleton back to their best. The Magpies opened the scoring with a mighty strike from Patrik Kane, a second goal from midfield magician Matty O'Reilly closed out a good 35 minutes for Midleton. h/t 0-2.
Midleton were really up for the second half and got right into Everton again but against the run of play from a cracking free kick Everton pulled one back. With just the start Everton were looking for against the run of play they equalized. Midleton didn't panic and kept on playing good foootball and were rewarded when Matty O'Reilly scored the winner. f/t 2-3
It was near impossible to pick out any man of the match when all 14 lads contributed but in defense Ronan Hayes and Sam O'Reilly playing out of position played brilliant. Fionn Duggan was outstanding as was Richard Phillips and Matty O'Reilly. Patrik Kane was at his best and Captain Craig Healy kept Everton at bay. Matty O'Reilly just pipped them all for man of the match

League at Knockgriffin V Douglas Hall on Sunday 23rd November 2014
Midleton 1 Douglas Hall 6

After the first meeting away to Douglas Hall when the three points should of gone to Midleton, hopes were up for a Magpie victory this time. It wasn't to be when to be fair all the lads had an off day and the Hall were deserving victors. Not too many highlights to report except for a good finish from Richard Phillips. The only thing to do now is put in some hard work and try to climb the table.

National Cup at Knockgriffin V Corkbeg on Sunday 9th November 2014
Corkbeg 1 Midleton 0

For the neutral it was a great game of soccer but for the Midleton lads it was very frustrating. Corkbeg scored the only goal of the game from a free kick from former Magpie Brendan Jallil. The first half was fairly even with Midleton coming close after a goal line clearance from Corkbeg. The only chance the opposition had was the free kick. h/t 0-1
Practically all the second half was played in the Corkbeg half and they have to be commended for their defending, it was top quality. Our own defenders also played well with Jack Lamb and David Scanlon in outstanding form. The Midleton centre midfield pairing of Carroll and Phillips also played well. It was just one of those days when four good scoring chances were missed. Top performer on the day was Jack Lamb who narrowly missed a goal attempt with the last kick of the game. Not to be, but good luck to Corkbeg in the next round.

League at O'Shea Park V Blarney on Sunday 12th October 2014
Blarney 2 Midleton 1

For the third game this season Midleton lost by the odd goal. The record dosn\'t look great but the lads are not far away. No team has been better than Midleton its just been the odd mistake and the opposition seem to punish us. As I said overall the performances have been good. Today we gave up a two goal lead after ten minutes and that has to stop. To be fair there were not too many highlights in the first half except for Abdul Backinson who was playing well at right midfield. h/t 2-0
The second half was much brighter with Patrik Kane and Fionn Duggan introduced into midfield with Midleton pressing hard to get back into the game it came after a corner and a bit of a scramble Gary Carroll lifted the ball into the top of the net to make it 2-1. The fightback was on but the lads could not get the equalizer they deserved. Good performers on the day came from Jack Lamb and Adam Meade in defense but the Midleton best on the day was Abdul Backinson.

League at Ballypheane Park V Kilreen Celtic on Sunday 5th October 2014
Kilreen Celtic 2 Midleton 4

The winning streak goes on for the u14 Magpies. The score does not reflect on how one sided the match at Ballyphane was today. If Midleton scored ten, Kilreen could have no complaint. Two great goals from man of the match Matty O\'Reilly one in each half along with a Niall Morgan cracker and a strikers goal from Sammy Fashola completed the rout. In a very one sided game unbelievably it was only 2-1 at the half to Midleton. Chance after chance was created by the lads in the black and white stripes but somehow only two goals were scored. h/t 1-2
The second half saw more of the same, against harder opposition you have to take your chances but still today was Midletons day. Players of note today came from the forwards, Niall Morgan, Matty O\'Reilly and Eabhan de Barra, also Matthew O\'Connor made a couple of impressive saves in the goal. f/t 2-4

League at Knockgriffin V Mallow on Sunday 21st September 2014
Mallow 0 Midleton 6

An outstanding performance today from Midleton. Someone was going to get a hiding and it just happened to be Mallow Utd. From the start there was a new determination from all the players, there was no such thing as a 50-50 ball today as Midleton made everything 60-40 in their favor. There was no chance of giving away an early goal to Mallow as Midleton dominated from the off. In fact it was the Magpies forward De Barra who nipped in to score the first two goals and then from his corner caused a panic in the Mallow defense and the away team conceded an own goal. The first half rout was finished off after Matty O\'Reilly flew a header into the roof of the net. h/t 4-0.
A sign of a good team is when you make three half time substitutions and the level of good play never dropped, Morgan, Connaughton and O\'Reilly stepped in and more than played their part, in fact the two second half goals came from Sam O\'Reilly and Connaughton. Further subs Fionn Duggan and Dave Scanlon kept the pressure on Mallow. All sixteen players played their part today with one player just shining out. Sam Quirke was outstanding in midfield. f/t 6-0

League at Castletreasure V Corinthians A on Sunday 14th September 2014
Corinthians A 2 Midleton 1

Another game and another defeat, but to be honest Corinthians got out of jail today. As with our generous nature we gave up an early goal to Corinthians but in fairness to them it was well worked. Midleton defending well with Craig Healy in great form at the back and our midfielders being dominant throughout the game. Midleton kept Corinthians to just the one chance in the first half with the Magpies coming close with a headed effort from Sam O\'Reilly and two good goalscoring chances from Matty O\'Reilly and Eabhan de Barra. H/T 1-0

A siege on the Corinthians goal culminated with the excellent Patrik Kane crossing the ball and Richard Phillips in a forward role nipping in to level the game. No more than Midleton deserved. Midleton could smell blood and kept on pressing for the winner, Phillips broke through with pace beating two defenders then chipping the stranded keeper only for the crossbar to save him, it was that kind of day. With only Corinthians second effort on goal the ball came loose and fell kindly to their striker to stroke into the net, cruel luck indeed. If effort got you three points then the lads deserved all three today. With this performance and the one against Douglas Hall it is only a matter of time before the lads make someone pay dearly. Midleton best performer came from our captain Craig Healy.

League at Knockgriffin V Everton on Sunday 1st September 2014
Everton 3 Midleton 0

A good day for a soccer match on a great pitch on a lovely September morning. Unfortunately the home team gave up their usual early charity goal to the visitors,less than five minutes gone and were down 1-0 after dreadful defending. No one player to blame but the whole team. Second and third horror goals followed and its near impossible to get back into the game when your so generous to the opposition. Less said about the first half the better. h/t 0-3
A better second half with the lads more committed to challenges and overall with three or four good chances to get back into the game. The defense tightened up and in particular one fantastic interception/tackle from Craig Healy brightened up the day. All four subs had a run and after linking up well Fionn Duggan put in Sam Fashola who from a header just clipped the bar, it was that type of day. If we are looking for positives then the improved attitude in the second half was it. Best performer of the day was from Craig Healy who never let his head drop throughout the game.

League at Moneygourney V Douglas Hall on Tuesday 31st August 2014
Douglas Hall 1 Midleton 0

The opening day of the new season gave Midleton the hardest of challenges, away on the plastic pitch at Douglas Hall. Given the instructions to keep it tight for the first 15 minutes all went out the window after Hall scored in the opening 5 minutes from an excellent corner. The bounce went their way and so it was 0-1. A fairly even half came to the close with both teams having equal possession. h/t 0-1.

The second period saw Hall hang on for dear life with Midleton pressing and challenging throughout. The Douglas Hall game plan as always was the high ball, which Midleton dealt with at ease with Gary Carroll and our Captain Craig Healey in command. Midleton pressed, Hall panicked, Midleton pressed again and again with Patrik O\'Kane coming close twice in a minute and then the Hall keeper pulled off a save of the season from new recruit Matthew O\'Reilly. Right up till the final whistle the lads played their hearts out and if your going to lose a match then this is the way to do it. If Midleton build on this performance then a great season is ahead. Top performers today were debutant Matt O\'Reilly, David Scannell, Paul Connaughton and man of the match Patrik Kane.
