Club Notes 7th November

Senior Men – League: We travelled to Latton on Sunday past for the re-arranged Round 14 game for the final game of the league. Even though we had an under-strength team and the result did not go our way, the lads acquitted themselves very well – there are certainly signs that we are headed in the right direction. Final score: Latton 3-13, Faughs 1-9. We would like to thank Alan and his team for the hard work they have put in this season, and also a big thank you to all the whole panel of players and everyone involved in the senior set-up this year.

Photos Needed: Joe Hanratty is presently updating the history of the Faughs club which was originally published in 1984, and is trying to track down team photos from 1985 to the present day. Photos would be scanned and returned to their owners expeditiously. They can be given to Joe or to any member of the committee. If people have photos and wish to scan them themselves and email them to Joe directly that would be great. If emailing photos would you please include team names and the year the photos was taken. If there is more information re; the match, competition and venue at which the photos were taken that would also be greatly appreciated. Photos can be emailed to jjhblayney@gmail.com or to Castleblayney Faughs secretary Melissa at the following email address secretary.castleblayney.monaghan@gaa.ie
