Reserve Team – The reserve team had an away trip last Saturday to Tyholland at 7pm ,with a lot of men injured and absent for various reason we managed to convince Manager Ray McArdle to play for the hour and he led by example from start to finish as the boys ran our winners. The result see the lads sit on top of the table with fourteen points, next up is a home game on Sunday 5th of July when we play Ballybay at 2pm.

This promises to be a great trip for everyone involved, players, coaches, parents and club members, we will keep everyone updated on social media platforms.

Girls Under 16 – The young ladies played St Brigit’s on Monday evening out in the field, in a tight affair the Faughs looked to have gained that advantage when Eileen Cullen score a great point to put four up with ten minutes to go but St Brigit’s fought back to level the game with three minutes to go before they finished us off with two goals in the last two minutes. The Faughs team tried really hard but tired as the game came into the last ten minutes but they can hold their heads high as they always attempted to do the right things on the pitch, best on the night for the young Faughs Ladies were Erin Brady, Shaunine Rice, Eileen and Aoife Cullen.

Clean Up Day - In an effort to keep the Club grounds in good condition we are looking at holding a clean-up day in the football field, what we are looking to do is fix, wash and cut the area around the Juvenile Field, we are hoping that people will volunteer their time for a couple of hours on Saturday 4th afternoon, you never know we might even look at throwing on the old BBQ if we get enough interested parties. If you are interested in helping out please give your name to either Brian Sherry, Melissa Conlon or any other Committee member.

Well Done – This week we have lots of Well Dones: the first is to Castleblayney Camogie Club who qualified for the Final of the Girls Feile Final only to lose to Galway but by all accounts they were brilliant. Next up, well done also to the Castleblayney Hurlers on their achievement of getting to the quarter final of their Cup Competition. Both Clubs earned great plaudits for their performances as well as their hosting of teams. Finally, well done to the County Senior Team on achieving another milestone by qualifying for the Ulster Senior Final for the third year in a row a feat which was last done in 1921.
