Club Notes 21st October 2014

Senior team – The Senior team had a disappointing result last Saturday night when we travelled to Inniskeen to play Magheracloone. The Faughs played against a strong breeze in the first half and going into half time they trailed by three points but Magheracloone showed greater determination and sharpness in the opening fifteen minutes of the second half to extend the gap to seven points before a late rally saw the Faughs close the gap, but it was too little too late, as the Mitchells claimed the two points. Final Score Magheracloone 1-10 Faughs 0-10. We now play Monaghan Harps on November 2nd at 2pm in St Marys Park, knowing that a win for either side will secure a semi-final place.

Operation TransFAUGHSmation – We had a brilliant attendance in the lashing rain last Friday evening for our last boot camp. There was a great atmosphere as Jazza and Marc Loughman from Fitness for Life put everyone through a gruelling fifty minute workout. Sunday saw another huge crowd attend for the walk/run/cycle. Don’t forget this Saturday, we have the great Cycle in Supervalu with Tom vowing that he will get his team to cycle more kilometres that Jazza’s. Please come out and support. Remember Friday 31st we have 80’s style circuits so get all those shoulder pads and hair spray ready for a great evening’s fun.

Team Jazza V Team Tom - This Saturday we have our Opertaion TransFAUGHSmation’s Charity Cycle Event in the Glencarn Shopping Centre from 10am to 5pm. Team Tom will take on Team Jazza in an effort to raise much needed funds for Castleblayney Cancer Society and St. Marys Hospital Patient Fund. We are asking everybody that can, to sign up for a 15 minute (or more) slot to cycle for Team Jazza or Team Tom. Please come out to support and give your donations, all money raised goes to the two local Charities.

Faughs Juvenile Winter Programme – The Faughs Juvenile winter programme is back up and running with training starting on Monday night for the Girls followed by Under 6, Under 8 and Under 10 training resuming on Thursday the 23rd of October. If you know of any child that wants to play GAA football please feel free to contact Brian Sherry (086- 2334287) or Melissa Conlon (087 7617216). Everybody is more than welcome to attend and we are only delighted to see new faces. Details on training times and locations can be found on the web site or on Facebook.

“Lets Walk”- The McMahon Centra ‘Lets Walk’ initiative in aid of Action Breast Cancer will take place on Saturday 1st November with a walk around the Castleblayney area. We would ask that you keep the date free so that you can join in, and you can buy your high vis Pink Jackets in Centra for €5 with all money going directly to Action Breast Cancer.

Hard Luck – The Boys School were beaten last week by Monaghan in the Final of the McGinn Cup, the team which was made up of Boys from 5th and 6th class with a strong representation from the Faughs, worked extremely hard throughout, but were defeated by a physically stronger Monaghan side. Well done to all the Boys and Master McEneaney on reaching the final.

Best of Luck – We would like to wish the Hurling Club the best of luck in their Ulster Final in Dungannon on Sunday. Throw in is at 2.30pm. Can we ask you to travel to support the club in its quest for further glory. It’s a great achievement to reach the final and let’s hope that the lads can come back to town on Sunday evening with Silverware in hand.

Lotto – There was no winner of this week’s jackpot with now stands at €5,900. The numbers drawn were 06, 08, 15 and 23. The two lucky dip winners were Tommy Myles, C/o Sarah Mackin and Maureen Murphy, Cairde. Next week’s draw will take place in Dignam’s Bar. Best of luck to everyone and many thanks for your continued support
