Club Notes April 19th

Senior Men: Our seniors lost against a better organised Ballybay team on Friday evening past. After a good start to the league, we have now lost two in a row. The Faughs were behind by a big margin at halftime, but an early rally in the second half made inroads into the Ballybay lead, but it was in vain as Ballybay ran out the winners. We now have a couple of weeks to re-group before we travel to Truagh on the 27th April.

Well Done: Congratulations to 2 Faughs players, Pauric Carville and Daithi Kelly who recently won medals in Ulster boxing. A fantastic achievement lads!

Club Notes April 2nd

All Star Presentation: Massive well done to Mark Treanor and Martin McElroy who both picked up an All-Star at the recent County All-Stars event held in the Glencarn.

Senior Men: Our seniors got their league of to a great start with a well deserved win against Scotstown at St. Mary Park on Saturday evening past. It was nip and during the first half, but gradually the Faughs edged out a lead they would not relinquish. The lads went in a half times 0-08 to 0-05 up. The lads maintained their grip on the tie in the second half and even a couple of red cards did not negatively affect the team. The Faughs raised the green flag with a penalty half way through the second half and ran out well deserved winners despite Scotstown getting a last minute goal to leave a point between the sides. Final score Faughs 1-11, Scotstown 1-10.
Next up for the lads is an away fixture against Inniskeen, 7.00pm this coming Saturday.
