Senior Team – The Senior team got there opening points of the Senior League last Wednesday evening in a very entertaining match against Latton, in front of a large crowd, at home in is St. Marys Park. A couple of early points by Dermot Malone and David Mc Mahon helped settle the Faughs and after the opening twenty minutes they lead by four points to no score, but a strong Latton response saw them regain control to draw the game before half time. The second half saw the continuation of some excellent defending by both sides and with 10 minutes to go, the game remained a draw before Keith Hill followed by fellow substitute Mark Hanratty opened up a two point margin, which the Faugh never looked like giving up. Further points by Hanratty, Hill and Fergal Malone saw the Faughs run out worthy winners.

New Stand – The Club were delighted to open the new 2,000 seater stand last week to the paying public for the Senior League match versus Sctotstown.

Well done and thank you to the gang of over 70 Members, Juveniles and Senior Players who all turned up on Friday evening to wash everything for the opening of the stand, it turned out to be a great evenings’ fun.
