Seniors win over Vincents in VdeP

I think about a five point win in a lively game which qualifies us to play Ballymun in the Final yet again. Gavin McArdle working his way back to forrm after a long layoff, Collie Mc, Beano and Conor Ryan a solid half back line, Micháel the pick of the forwards with some lovely points, Fionn masquerading as a dual star corner forward was also on target as he was last evening in the hurling.. We have had a nice run of wins after looking quite shaky a few months ago. Hard to read too much into it of course but more right than wrong.

Pitch improvements in Broomfield

We are currently working on our pitches in Broomfield. I would ask all to be responsible in relation to training and games especially as we are investing club monies to renew and improve the playing surfaces on both pitch 1 & 2.

Inters win in extra time

IFC R2 I couldn't make the game on Saturday evening at St Margarets but reports are that we made a tremendous recovery againts Clan Mhuire from The Naul and won well in extra time. Can someone send a few notes.

Seniors look strong at the Naul

SFC R1 St Sylvesters 1-09 St Maurs 0-09 Very important win for us given the slow start to the season. From start to finish we were by far the better team and and, for the first time this year displayed some of the strength and drive of previous years although we did waste a lot of chances. We beat a team who sit at the top of AFL1 and we are now eagerly looking forward.

Inters over tricky Ballymun hurdle

IFC St Sylvesters 1-13 Ballymun Kickhams 1-09 Closer than it needed to be in the end but we were always in control against Joe Boynes Ballymun. Jack was the standout player on the filed but there were plenty of impressive displays by Conor Colclough, Conor Ryan, a very swift John Peacock, Brian McCarthy and Mark Finnerty up front.

Seniors go down to Judes

AFL1 St Sudes 3-14 St Sylvesters 2-06 Well beaten is the fairest assessment, Judes were confident and efficient especially in their point scoring, we started well but became hesitant and lacking in confidence as the game progressed. Some good displays, Ross seems to have recovered his form, Shane made many good catches, John Peacock looked at home at corner back, nice to welcome back Rob Wallace after a bad injury at Maurs last year, Mark Finnerty and Brian McCarthy both looked lively when introduced as second half substitutes.

Impressive Junior Football win

JFC C St Maurs 0-07 St Sylvesters 0-13 A tough Championship game away to Maurs, it took us a long time to get to grips with a very determined Maurs outfit who started well and raced into a three point lead. Dan and Peter got to grips in the middle and our fast forwards, Kevin Casey, Dylan and Paul Connolly, Eoin Sweeney knocked over a few points and we went in even at the break after facing a strong breeze.

Minors win over Whitehall

MFL2 St Sylvesters 3-10 Whitehall Colmcille 1-13 (at least I think we won by 3). A somewhat laboured win in a game we really should have put away a lot easier. It was good to win however as we lost a similar effort at Skerries on Wednesday. There is a lot of football in this team and we will be looking forward to some more forceful displays after the Leaving.

Mixed weekend for footballers

Surely one of our poorer displays over the last few years, a weakened senior team was well beaten by an equally weakened Ballymun at Broomfield. We stayed in the game against the wind in the first half but about four wides when scores were on plus a soft goal given away left us five adrift. Ross was black carded (I've no idea why) and that upset us. A few good points by Eoin Fanning, senior league outings for David Sexton, Ronan Palmer, Mark Hazely and Mark Finnerty were probably our highlights.

Stephen Cunningham wins Leinster U21F

Congrats to Stephen starting at centre back for the U21 Dubs against Meath last evening at Potlaois. The Dubs were much more economical with their scoring opportunities and ran out 5 points winners.

Good day for our footballers

Congrats and well done to Robbie Brennan and his senior team getting their first win of the season in impressive fashion over at Dolphin's Barn against a usually strong Templeogue SS. John Murphy's Inters were also very impressive beating St Marks in Broomfield while both Junior teams also recorded good wins.

Minor As just pipped at Fingallians

MFL Div2 We lost our first outing by a single point over in Swords. Padraic was a little disappointed, felt we might have stole it in the end. The Minor Bs were disappointed to get a walkover from O'Dwyers.

Great kickoff with Football 7's - it's all about the Club.

We had a great football competition to kickoff 2014 on Saturday - 14 teams, about 120 playing, hurlers, ladies, minors, juniors, inters and seniors with a lot of ex players and friends. We even had a couple of sendings off and a few more who pushed their luck. It was a miserable day weather wise but that didn't take away from the craic. Finished up with a good old shindig in the club. Congrats to Ciaran Roche and Donal Hayes for the idea and the execution - I sure hoppe we do it again. Check out the picture albums, they tell the story.

Football team management news for 2014

It's been a busy few weeks but we now have our adult team managers in place for the coming year and we're looking forward with great anticipation. We welcome Robbie Brennan and Dave Clare to the senior football team along with our own Cathal O'Donnell and I'll post a better introduction in a few days. Former Syls greats John Murphy and Mark Green are taking on the AFL3 challenge hoping to continue our quest for a second senior team. Shane Cowley and Declan McGrath continue with the AFL6 team after a very competitive 2013 and we welcome Andy McDonnell back to Syls football, teaming up with Brian Danagher to bring renewed spark to our AFL9 team. Shay Byrne and Padraig Quinn are stepping up from Minor B last year to Minor A and they also welcome Chris Ryan back after a few years off. Paul O'Toole and Philip Reid step up from U16 to Minor B. Best of luck to all of you.

DCU defeat the Dubs in O'Byrne Cup

Eoin Fanning came on at half time for the Dubs and made a big contribution as they opened up a six point lead, Eoin getting one. Micháel McCarthy was a late sub for DCU and hit a brilliant opportunistic goal before Davy Byrne added a point for the students to steal it.

Seniors fall at final hurdle

AFL1 Title Game - ST BRIGID'S 2-10 ST SYLVESTER'S 0-12 Disappointment again as we lost our second final in two years. This time we were well in the hunt and looked like winning with 10 minutes remaining leading by two points but we didn't add on the scores when we had the advantage. Brigids goaled after some indecision in our backline and kicked on with a couple of points. Great crowd, great fast game of football, lots to be positive about. Congratulations to Brigids, they competed hard all season. Congratulations to Gabriel, Paul, Giddy, Tom, and Ciaran and all our team, it was a long hard season and, pushed Vincents to a point in the Championship (and they may win the All Ireland, good luck to them) and went within 10 minutes of winning the league. Of course we're disappointed, who wouldn't be, but we're very proud of our team no doubt we will come again next season. Well done all.
