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.

U21s lose a good game to Na Fianna

U21FCA semi-final St Sylvesters 0-11 Na Fianna 2-12 Big crowd in Broomfield expecting a cracker and they weren't disappointed, at least in the first half. This was U21 at it's best, end to end, fast flowing football, some great scores - make you winder why we under value this grade so much, big shame. We were even stevens in the first half until Fianna opened us up for a goal and we never really got close after.

Junior Footballers lose to Cuala

AFL6 Top4 Semi Final We lost by three points I think in a smashing game of football, I'll leave it to Declan or Shane to send a report but it was a very enjoyable game between two very good teams.

Seniors draw again with Boden

AFL1 Semi Final AET St Sylvesters 1-17 Ballyboden St Endas 2-14 Just like Ireland v All Blacks we were hit with the ultimate last second sickener with Boden scoring a scrappy goal with the last kick of extra time. At least we were 3 up and therefore get a 2nd bite but it was a match we deserved to win and should have won

U21s reach semi-final with classy display

U21 A FC St Sylvesters 4-10 Castlenock 0-08 Yes, it was a comprehensive win over a Castlenock team who had defeated Vincents in the previous round and looked pretty sharp early on. Jack got us off to a great start high fielding a superb cross field ball from Alan Foy and burying in the net. Castlenock steadied themselves and scored three good points but the Syls rearguard got on top and we knocked off six straight points to lead 1-06 to 04 at the break.

Dual Player - alive and well

Apparently the day of the dual player is over, even at club level or so we are to believe! But see attached, 8 Clare senior hurlers winning county football and getting to Munster Club Final! Surely if they can do it we should not let our kids be told that they must choose one code over the other........ Ernie

Seniors qualify for Top4 in AFL1

AFL1 Ballyboden 0-12 St Sylvesters 0-12 A result that will hardly please Plunketts ER as the draw sees both Syls and Boden make the playoffs at their expense, ironically against each other in Broomfield next Sunday 11.00am. To be fair it would be difficult to 'conspire' a draw, especially on the pitch at Sancta Maria which has a 'summer' bounce which we found very difficult to master. Syls came from three points down in the last 5 minutes with scores from Gary Sweeney, Nigel Dunne and Aiden Relihan (great to see Aido save the day and show he still has plenty to affer at this level).

Six Syls players nominated for Blue Stars

Well done to Brian Sexton, Fionn Carney, Gavin McArdle, Eoin Fanning, Eugene Keating and Nigel Dunne - not a bad representation for Syls I suppose - dominated by Ballymun and Vincents with 11 each.

Inters lose out to Brigids

AFL3 T4 SF St Sylvesters 1-05 St Brigids 1-13 Sorry I don't have a report. The lads will be disappointed after a busy season where we went close to automatic qualification but it slipped away with a draw away to Brigids and then a narrow home defeat to Barrog. The qualifiers were always going to be difficult but the loss through injury of Mark Reilly, Campers, John Peacock proved too much. Congratulations to Joe Boyne and his team (Ciaran, Conor, Paul, Cotsie) and the lads for a very competitive season.

U21s win at Maurs

U21 A FC St Maurs 0-07 St Sylvesters 4-07 Sounds like a big win and in the end it was but we had to battle hard up to the 4th quarter before pulling away. This is our first U21 win in a number of years and sees us into the quarter finals in two weeks I think.

Vincents shade it in C'ship QF

SFC QF St Vincents 0-14 St Sylvesters 2-07 We left Parnell Park very disappointed but proud of our team after losing by the narrowest margin against a good Vincents outfit. We fell five points behind in the first half as we struggled to get a grip around the middle but we gave a great display in the second with two great goals and two more that got away but time ran away on us as we tried to get the equaliser.
