THE Blackwater Motors U12 Premier is certainly heating up and both Ringmahon Rangers and Midleton are in the frame to battle for the title.

As it stands, Midleton top the table after taking 35 points from 13 games. The Knockgriffin side recently reached the semi finals of the SFAI Skechers National Cup after defeating Naas A on penalties in the quarter finals. 

Midleton will play St. Kevin's Boys in the semis and confidence is certainly high within the tables toppers camp. 

They play Carrigaline United at home at Mart Field on Sunday and a win for the home side will keep the pressure on rivals Ringmahon Rangers. Kick off is set for 12.45pm. 

Ringmahon are seven points behind Midleton but the boys in red and black have three important games in hand. 

On Sunday, Ringmahon entertain Castleview at Ringmahon Park at 11.45am and the home side will be favoured to win the tie. 

Corinthians take on Douglas Hall at Moneygourney at 10am and Wilton United and Mallow entertain Fermoy and Lakewood Athletic respectively.

Corinthian Boys went three points clear in the Skechers U14 Premier after beating Springfield Ramblers 3-1 at home last weekend but Midleton still hold a slight advantage in the race for the league title. Midleton have two games in hand and both sides are in action on the weekend. Midleton travel to John Murphy Memorial Park to take on Springfield Ramblers at 11.45am. Corinthians are at home to St. Mary's at 12.45pm and the home team go into the tie as strong favourites.

Greenwood can't afford to lose to Corinthian Boys this Sunday in the Joma/Sportsgear Direct U16 Premier and in reality the Togher side need to get the win. Greenwood currently trail Corinthians by just two points in the league but they have played a game more and this Corinthians side aren't accustomed to losing many league points. Corinthians would still have the advantage even if they lost to Greenwood but they will be seeking maximum points nonetheless from what should be a cracking game. Kick off is set for 10am at Coffey's Field.

Corinthian Boys are in action on the Woodlands all weather pitch in Greystones on Sunday in the U15 SFAI Skechers National Cup against hosts Greystones. Corinthians have the potential to go all the way in the competition and if they neat Greystones on the weekend they will play either Swilly Rovers or St. Josephs Boys in the semis.
