Club Notes 30th Sept 2014

Senior team – The Senior team had a good win away to neighbours Doohamlet last Sunday lunchtime. In a high scoring game, the Faughs came out on top by three points with goals coming in the first half from Marty McElroy and Dermot Malone. The final Score was Doohamlet 3- 12 Faughs 2- 17. This result now sees the team move into third place on 17 points. Our next game is on Wednesday 1st of October, when we host Currin at 8pm under lights, and the next league game a home match against Ballybay with a throw in time of 5pm. Can we ask everyone to come out and support the team as we push for a semi-final place in the league.

Operation TransFAUGHSmation – again this year, OPTFM is going from strength to strength each week. We have had great numbers at all the classes in the last week and we urge you all to stick with the programme so that you continue to improve your fitness. Some of you might be a bit stiff and sore over the next few days but keep stretching and drink plenty of water and remember, there is no gain without some pain. Circuits continue on Tuesday evening at the normal times while this Friday evening will see us all go to yoga. Sunday morning again we want to see everyone going to the field for the walking/running session.

Intermediate Semi Finals –The Club held the County Intermediate Semi Finals last Saturday with Inniskeen and Donaghmoyne advancing to the County Final. Thanks to the army of stewards who helped out on the day and to the Cronin’s for providing their field as a car park facility. Once again it was another hugely successful event.

Well done – Last weekend saw two big events in the town. On Saturday the town was closed off as the Castleblayney 400 Fair Day was held on the Main Street with everyone dressing up for the occasion. While on Sunday, David and Susan Funcheon ran an extremely successful 5/10K run for Crumlin Hospital. Both events attracted huge crowds and were brilliantly organised, with fun for all the family. Well done to everyone, organisers, participants and the people who attended both the fair day and the run. Events like these are great testament to our community spirit in Castleblayney and allows us portray our town in the positive light that it fully deserves.

Lotto – There was no winner of this week’s lotto jackpot. The draw took place in Sean’s Bar on Monday evening and the numbers drawn were 4, 7, 12 and 24. The two lucky dip winners were Margie Hughes, Cairde and Tommy Grimes, Broomfield. Many thanks to everyone for your continued support and good luck to everyone in next week’s draw which will take place in the The Conabury Inn.
