U16 Boys Last Thursday the Faughs U16’s travelled to Killeevan for their first game after the exam break. Due to injuries and holidays, they travelled with the bare minimum. The result was in doubt right up to the end, and with 5 minutes to go, the Faughs trailed by 5 points. However, two goals in quick succession from Josh Walsh and Francis McGeough sealed a great victory during which the team showed true Faughs grit and determination. Excellent performances on the evening from all the players, with special mention to Mark Connor, Jack Callan and Ben McNee, secured two valuable points. Credit to a brave Killeevan team who had some very strong players, but were just piped at the finishing post. The team togged out for the first time this year without Evan Comiskey, who was sorely missed, and all the team and Management wish him every good wish in his recovery.
Next game is on Thursday 17th away to Clones.

U16 Girls The girls completed their league program against Sean mc Demott’s last week. The girls produced sometimes excellent football at times but finally went down to a more clinical Sean’s side. Next up for the girls will be the championship we are awaiting confirmation of opposition and date.

U14 Boys The lads have had a bit of a break from competitive games however training has been stepped up in preparation for the Championship Final. This will be the U14s next game, taking place on Wednesday 16th July, 7.30pm in Tyholland where they will meet Sean McDermotts. Put the date in your diaries and come out to support the lads.

U14 Girls We are still awaiting the draw for the U14 Championship.

U12 Boys The U12 Dev team had a tough game at home to Killeevan on Saturday last. The game was tied the whole way through, with our Faughs securing the points at the end. Final score Faughs 5-11 Killeevan 5-9. Unfortunately due to players being on holidays the U12 Senior team had to concede their match against Donaghmoyne. Next up for the teams are games on Saturday 19th July. 12pm Latton v Development Team. 112pm Senior Team v Inniskeen.

U10 Girls The young U10 girls had a good game against Doohamlet this week. They put in a very impressive performance and displayed a very good array of skill, determination and score taking.
