SFL Men: Our seniors made the journey to Inniskeen on Friday past in a re-arranged game. With five valuable points on offer, the Faughs produced a good display to see off the hosts. Final score Inniskeen 0-10, Faughs 1-15.
Next up for the lads is an away game with Latton this coming Saturday at 7.00pm.
Under 13 Boys: Our U13 Boys played away to Clones last Saturday on the famous St Tiernach’s pitch. The Faughs started brightly with points from Nathan Mc Ardle and Cormac Conlon and led by three points before Clones found the back of the net to equalise and they then added a couple of points to go in at half time 1-5 to 0-6 up. The second half was a great battle with the teams level on a number of occasions before Arnus Gleeson scored a decisive goal with five minutes to go to leave the Faughs up by three. Clones to their credit laid siege on the Faughs goal but some resolute defending by the men in Green and Gold saw them emerge victorious on a score line of Clone 1-7 Faughs 1-9. Both team should be congratulated on a great match. These boys have met three time in the last year and they always produce a match of the highest quality. Well done to both teams.
Under 11 Boys: This Wednesday the 25th of April, we travel to play our old friends Scotstown in the Liam Stirrat Development league. We will have two games on the main Scotstown pitch at 7pm , the boys will leave from St Marys Park at 6pm.
U14 girls: continue the league with a home game against Scotstown Tues 24th.
On the back of their win over Carrickmacross 2 weeks ago hopefully they can continue their winning ways.
Under 8 and Under 10 Girls: Last Saturday the Girls travelled to Clontibret for a blitz which was organised by the O Neills Shamrocks. The beautiful sunny morning made for some excellent conditions for the Girls to play football and in fairness to these young ladies didn’t disappoint. We were able to field one team for each age group and everybody got lots of game time against O Neills, Monaghan Harps and Killeevan. Well done to all the Girls on the morning, they were just super and also a thank you to Jane from O’Neills for the invite for a very well-run blitz.
U7s & U9 boys: Truagh were the hosts of the first of this year’s u-7 and U-9 GoGames on Sat last. The sunny morning made for some great football. Castleblayney sent 4 teams in all and competed well in all their games. Future star’s in the making were on show and the Faugh’s can look forward to nurturing the raw talent of these latest recruits in the years ahead. Truagh must be commended for doing a great job in hosting the event. Thanks to the parents who travelled to the blitz and for their continued support.
RFL Men: The Faughs still remain top of the league along with the Harps after a decent Killanny side went home from St. Marys Park with all two points. The Faughs contested well but came out on the wrong side of a 3-9 to 2-15 result.
