First Up was the U12 Development team against Emyvale. The young faughs team adapted very quickly to the challenging conditions and very quickly raced into a lead, which provided the platform for these stars of the future to display their growing array of football skills, teamwork and excellent score taking in front of goal. Ionut Lungu gave a solid display in goals, while Jake McDonnell gave an excellent display in the full back line, well supported by Callum Campbell, Daniel McShane, Cian Malone and Nathan McArdle. The midfield duo of Sean Bishop and Shea Casey put in a very solid performance while up front the forwards Jamie Ward, Jake O’Connor, Joshua Conlon, Ryan Mullen, Daniel Kerr were always a handful for the Emyvale defence.
