U14 Boys: Our U14’s had a great result on Saturday past when they got past a determined Carrick team in the Manor Farm Cup Final. Played in dry but breezy conditions at Blackhill, the lads put in a great shift to take home the silverware.
This is what the team and management have been working up to all season, so it was great to see all the hard effort and training pay off. Well done to all the players and coaching team for a great win and a fitting end to the season. Final score: Faughs 3-12, Carrick 2-5.
U12 Girls: Our girls had a great win on Friday evening past with a hard-earned victory against Emyvale in the semi-final. Showing a lot of effort and determination and no small amount of skill, the girls thoroughly deserved this result. The final is due to be played this coming Sunday, 1.30pm against Killanny in Aughnamullen – all support is much appreciated.
U10 Boys: Our U10 boys travelled on Saturday past to the inaugural Enda Kavanagh tournament. The lads turned on the style and had some great wins, and showed plenty of effort and determination. All of their hard work paid off when they came home with the shield. Well done to all the players and mentors – great job!
U12 Boys: Sunday saw another final for another of our juvenile teams when the U12 boys took on Donaghmoyne in the Shield Final. Following in the same vein as the U14’s and U10’s the day before, the lads put in a great shift and came out on the right side in a great game of football. On a scoreline of Faughs 2-12, Donaghmoyne 0-7, the team put on a good exhibition of skill and determination and thoroughly deserved the win. Well done to the lads and their mentors for bring home the silverware.
Well Done: Well done to all our boys and girls juvenile teams who played this week – they all had great results. This definitely shows the great work that is happening within the club and the future is definitely bright!
Well done to our Senior men who had a good result against Donaghmoyne on Friday evening past. Final score: Faughs 0-13, Donaghmoyne 0-10.
Well done to our hurling team who won the League Final on Sunday past with a well-earned victory over Inniskeen.
Good luck: Best wishes to our U12 girls team and our U12 boys team – both are playing important finals this coming Sunday. They have been working hard all season, so let’s hope the two teams can top off a great season by taking home the silverware. All support is much appreciated.
