Winning Streak – 09-09-2005
In 2004-2005 the 1st Team put in three winning streaks in the league. The first was a five game winning streak starting with the first game of the season against Rathkenny, followed by victories over Rock Celtic, Trim Town, Botown and again Rathkenny before defeat by Gelnmuir halted the run.
The next run was less significant as it was only three wins in a row against Dromin, Square and Carrick, however this was the start of un unbeaten run of eleven games.
The third and longest winning streak included six games of the aforementioned eleven game unbeaten run in which Dromin, Ardee, Glenmuir, Trim Town, Rock Celtic, and Botown being beaten before a draw with Carrick ended the run.
In 2004-2005 the second team struggled with inconsistancy and only put in one short winning streak, with three victories over Square, Dromin and Rock. This run was ended with a draw against Duleek, Not surprisingly this was also the second teams longest unbeaten run as the draw against Duleek was followed by another victory over Dromin to leave them with an unbeaten run of five games.
Winning Streak – 6
Unbeaten Run – 11
Winning Streak – 3
Unbeaten Run – 5
