U16s go down to Boden by three

U16s go down to Boden by three

Baltic weather did not dampen the enthusiasm in this excellent Division1 opening game. The lead changed hands regularly in a fagt moving skillful game. We were tight on players while Boden had a full compliment of subs and that probably made the difference in the end when we could not provide any relief on a very slippy and heavy field which really takes it out of the legs.

U15 Report from Ernie

U15 Report from Ernie

Winning a Championship takes hard work in all kinds of weather and, as this picture from an U7 challenge match against Clontarf in November 2008 shows, this group of 2001 boys have never been afraid to put the effort in, an effort that was rewarded by the clubs second U15 A Football Championship in 3 years on a glorious day in O’Toole Park

U15s magnificent championship win

U15 FC Final St Sylvesters 2-12 Ballyboden St Endas 1-07 A really top class display by our lads to beat an equally fine Boden team in a very entertaining game at O'Toole Park in Crumlin. Sean Guiden was awarded man-of-the-match for a great display of point scoring from full forward. Goalkeeper Simon Murphy made two super saves in the first half and saved a penalty at a pivotal point in the second while Euan Farquarsan and Aaron Coleman in the half back line were strong contenders.in what was an all round great display from the Sylvesters team. Ernie will send a report when he catches his breath and Maurice has pictures. Congrats to David 'Super' Ryan, Panner McCarthy and Ernie Brenner.

15s through to Championship Final

15s through to Championship Final

U15F A C'ship SF The U15A footballers qualified for the clubs second U15A Championship Final in 2 years with a hard fought victory over a very well drilled Clontarf team. At times through the game the result looked like it was slipping away from us but goals came for us at exactly the right time to see us over the line. We trailed from almost the first minute until well in to the second half and at one stage in that second period we were 4 points down and going out as we seemed to have no answer to Clontarf’s sharp play.

U15s finish on a high in Div1

U15A Football League Division 1 After 14 games, the U15 Football League season ended on Sunday with a 4 point win away to Ballyboden. It really was a case of what could have been for this group of players; a slow start where we lost the first 4 games put us out of contention almost from the start.

15 hurlers lose at Na Fianna

Well beaten on the end after a good start where we matched Na Fianna at 4 points each but they got a goal and a few points and suddenly a gap opened. We lost a midfielder to a red card and struggled to compete afterwards.

U15Bs impress in C'ship win over Whitehall

The U15B's also had an impressive win away to Whitehall running out 5-10 to 2-04 winners. The second team performed well on a very warm Sunday morning , Sam Mc Cormack debuted in goal and played really solidly with some great kickouts . The defence played as a unit with super tackling keeping Whitehall to six scores over the course of the hour . Midfielders and half forwards worked hard with the long winters training paying off with the lads still full of running at the end of the match and are full forwards converted a hatful of chances ,

Tough start for U15s

U15F D1 Sporting new management and coaches in Panner and Super Ryan, the U15s lost by six points to a strong Lucan Sarsfields in Bridgefield on Sunday morning. I only saw the second half where we had a decent wind in our backs and matched Sarsfields on the scoreboard but we couldn't reel in the six point defecit from the first half. We did get back to three points and unfortunately hit the post with a penalty that would have brought us level but that was as close as we got. The Lucan keeper pulled off a couple of good saves and they finished with three points to restore a good lead.

U14s just pipped in Div1 Final

U14s just pipped in Div1 Final

U14 D1 Football League Final. Something like Whitehall Gaels 3-12 St Sylvesters 2-13 Smashing game of football with all skills on display, the lead changing hands five or six times. Syls played a super first half into a cold wind but we spurned a few good goal chances tat would have given us a deserved lead at the break and, instead, we trailed by four. We quickly regained the lead after the break and raced ahead by five only to take our foot off the gas and Whitehall fought their way back, a very late goal giving them a lead we had no time to overcome. There was a great Syls crowd at the game and we were all very disappointed for our team, convinced we should have taken it. Of course we can only congratulate Whitehall who never lay down, they are a fine team and worthy champions.

U14s into Div1 League Final

The U14A footballers visited 3rd placed Lucan on Saturday knowing that a win would guarantee us qualification for the League Final with a game to spare. All seemed to be going to plan early on as we raced in to a 3 point lead, dominance around midfield allied to some slick forward play. However, Lucan are a big physical team and managed to get on top and a goal just before half time meant we turned 1-04 to 0-6 down. Odran Monaghan, Jack Boyne, Cian Grassick and Daragh McLoughney being our standout players

Death of 'Grandad Liam' O'Brien RIP

The Players, mentors and families of all involved in the U14 teams wish to express their condolences to Helen, Conor and the O’Brien family on the passing of Liam. ‘Granddad Liam’, as he was known to all the players, had been a constant fixture at our matches and training sessions since we started out in the Nursery up until his recent illness. He was a quiet, supportive presence on the sideline, always available to give lifts (and stop in McDonalds on the way back), always encouraging and saying well done. He took huge pride is seeing the lads grow and mature, he celebrated wins and losses with dignity and a team photo took pride of place in his living room. He will be greatly missed by all. Ernie

Euan and Eoin take a break - thanks to Brian and Mick also

After a busy schedule with Dublin and All Ireland football and hurling Feile's over the past few weeks Eoin and Euan Farquarsan took a breather and painted the newly roofed storage box in Bridgefield. Eoin is the person who set up the goals net system and is proudly referred to as THE DON (Director of Nets). Note that the roof of this container was also repaired recently after many years – this work was funded by the race night that Brian Barnes and Michael McGahan organized earlier this year.

Syls just pipped for All Ireland Feile Title

Feile na nÓg Douglas Cork 3-04 St Sylvesters 2-03 A couple of brave saves by the Douglas keeper and full back thwarted a great comeback from Syls U14 in the All Ireland Feile Final in St Conleth's Park Newbridge. We had already witnessed gutsy comebacks against Dungannon Tyrone and Naas Kildare in two earlier highly competitive games and everybody present was very proud of our team for their skill and never say die attitude. Great stuff lads - read on for the full story from Ernie.

U14 hurlers All Ireland Feile Winners

Report on Regional Hurling Feile on Saturday below. I believe this represents the first national trophy the club have ever won in hurling, although I would be obviously open to correction on that. Our U14 hurlers went to Galway for Regional Feile na nGael tournament last Saturday and took national hurling honours home to Malahide after a thrilling day of hurling.

Never an elasy assignment to play division 1 football at any age and congratulations to Ian McComish and Donal McCarthy and their team. They got promoted to Div 1 this year, big step up but girls improved with each match peaking with a narrow defeat to Na Fianna in last match of season. Also congratulations to Caitlin Guiden who represented Dublin at U14 in the recent Leinster Final against Meath.

U14s prepare for Regional Feile's with win over Crokes

U14 D1 A division 1 win over Crokes is always hard won and Staurday afternoon at Bridgefield was no different. The quality of the football from both sides was excellent and a lesson in how to play fast and direct. Syls seemed to take the right option every time, very direct, very fast, never delaying the pass and never going backwards. The game looks so easy when played like this and well done to all. Next week the U14s travel to Galway for the Hurling Feile and the week after to Newbridge for Football Feile. Good luck to you all.

Syls U14s in Regional Feile's - Hurling and Football

Great achievement for the U14 boys and their mentors, congratulations to all and hopefully we will have some support travel to support thme in the tournements. Just as a follow up to the recent Dublin Féile's in hurling & football, as you may be aware the GAA have amended the format of the national tournaments in recent years - really to try supress the win-at-all-costs approach that was manifesting itself - and while there remains a national Feile in both codes, it is the Dublin Division 3 champions who will represent Dublin this year in both codes in the main tournaments.

Brave Syls fight to the end in Feile Final

Brave Syls fight to the end in Feile Final

Feile na nÓg Div1 Final Whitehall Colmcille 2-07 St Sylvesters 2-04 Lining out I thought we looked noticibly smaller than the opposition but we came out of the blocks quicklly and took an early 2-02 to 1-01 into a strong wind but ended the half down by a point. Although we had a wind in our backs in the second half, Whitehall seemed to build a wall across the middle and built up a five point lead before we came at them strongly in the last ten minutes. We hit two points, shaved the post a couple of times and were only thwarted by some brave defending by the Whitehall lads. Disappopinted of course but very proud of the way our team played in a very good sporting game. Ernie will send a proper report when he catches his breath.

Report from the Feile na nÓg

Report from the Feile na nÓg

What a weekend that was! Before a ball was thrown in on Saturday we knew we were winners with 66 young players, across 3 teams, representing the club in Feile Peil. While the spotlight falls on the A footballers, all 3 teams were competitive and carried themselves with dignity and honour. The A footballers were within a few millimetres of winning the clubs first Feile crown but it was not to be. A 10 minute spell either side of the break cost us and in the shortened matches of Feile it is difficult to pull back a lead.
