Tony Downey’s side travelled to Cork full of confidence of making a major statement but had their aspirations ripped apart by a dominant Midleton who entered the Munster U19 final as favourites, they had previously defeated Tulla Utd in the semi-final.

Midleton threated early on and had a goal on the board on seven minutes when Jake Mallon got on the end of a Kalum Keane cross to finish from close range.

Dean Hegarty came close to equalising on fourteen minutes but the Kilnamona midfielder had his shot stopped by Diarmuid Byrne.

Mallon collected his second goal on twenty four minutes, he headed a Liam McGrath free to the back of the net, moments previously he was closed down after finding space in the box.

A lifeline presented itself to Ennis Town captained by Robbie Gormley when Midleton midfielder Eoin Brenner was shown a straight card. An evident lift appeared from the Clare side who threatened for the next fifteen minutes but crucially failed to get the ball past Byrne.

Matters were wrapped up on fifty five minutes when Matthew Amoo benefitted from a through ball before taking it past Conor Meaney and tapping the ball to the back of the net.
