Corinthia Boys 3 Midleton 0
Corinthians Boys U13's started their season well with a deserved victory over a gallant Midleton side. The first half was a tight affair and scoreless with both sides cancelling each other out. The second half began similarly. However, midway through the second half, Jack Leonard broke the deadlock from close range for Corinthians by finishing off a fine team passing move. This was quickly followed by a second Corinthians goal from a fantastic Alex Hill long range shot into the top corner of the net. Corinthians had by now begun to play with a lot of confidence. Their passing from defence through midfield and into attack resulted in several attempts on goal which were brilliantly stopped by the Midleton goalkeeper. With 8 minutes to go, a fine George Coomber free kick completed the scoring for Corinthians.
This was a good Corinthians display with all 16 players contributing well to the result.
Team: C O'Leary, S. Cantillon, A. Hill, S. Cotter (D. Squires 49), E. Redmond, J. Harte (D. Meade 49), M. Healy, D. Welch (G. Coomber h/t), M. Nason (J. Leonard 41), M. Redmond (D. O'Sullivan 41), D. Okonkw

Result: Corinthians 6 – Springfield Ramblers 0
The Under 14 Premier team opened their season with a fine victory at home over Springfield Ramblers. Playing a strong controlled game the team imposed themselves from the start.Good possession and passing led to Ricardo Dinanga making a strong run from midfield and firing a shot home from 20 yards.
With some good team play they opened up the Springfield defence leading to a goal from Ricardo in the 14th minute. Corinthians continued to dominate with another fine strike by Ricardo after 30 minutes which was quickly followed by his 4th goal on 32 minutes following a cross from Adam Idah.
Corinthians didn’t give Springfield any chance to settle from the start of the second half with Scott Philpott curling a shot to the top left corner of the net. This was followed by an almost identical shot and finish from Leo Barron after 42 minutes.
In fairness to Springfield they continued to try and managed to keep Corinthians scoreless for the rest of the game.
This was a great start for new coach Kevin Ronayne. The team now have 3 away games in a row , starting away to Buttevant next Sunday.l

Corinthians 3-2 Mallow
An opening day win over Mallow earned Corinthians a deserved three points in Castletreasure. Corinthians began brightly and were a goal up after 3 minutes when Beineon O'Brien picked out Rory Doyle in the box who finished well. Mallow equalised 5 minutes later after a failure in the Corinthians defence to track a run in the box. But on 20 minutes Corinthians took the lead again when Conor Fagan's effort on goal was helped into the net by the Mallow keeper. Corinthians pushed on after the interval in search of another goal and soon got it thanks to a clever dribble and finish in the box from Cathal Keane. Mallow though, never gave in and were rewarded with a goal for their efforts 20 minutes from time. By this time Corinthians were down to 10 men as Rory Doyle came off injured after all substitutions had been made. 10-man Corinthians dug deep and managed the final part of the game excellently to seal a deserved 3 points. Good opening day performances from Cathal Keane, Conor Bowdren and Daniel O' Donovan.
Under 16 Premier: Springfield Ramblers 0 Corinthian Boys 7
A solid team performance saw Corinthians kick off their league campaign with an awesome display of football. Cian Leonard chalked up his first hat-trick of the season while debutantes Ethan Hurley and Nathan Broderick (2) along with established striker Eoin Davis all got on the score sheet after good assists from their team mates, Donagh Gribbon, Ciaran Couch & James O'Donovan. Corinthians showed tremendous energy throughout. Their passing was quick and purposeful from back to front, with Goalkeeper, David O'Keeffe's quick distribution of the ball being key in the build up of many of Corinthian's attacks. Unfortunately, the gloss was taken off the result with the news that the injury sustained by Stephen Fox during the game may see him sidelined for a few weeks. His team mates and coaches wish Stephen a speedy recovery. Chris Healy, David Nason, Conor Shalloe and Keith White also put in top class performances.
