U8s Hurling vs Plunketts & Vincents
Our two U8s Groups welcomed the hurlers of St. Oliver Plunketts ER & St. Vincents to a sunny Castle last Saturday morning. Over 45 Syls hurlers played over the 2 fixtures, with the Greens facing 3 teams from Plunketts, and the Blues playing 2 teams from Vincents. The pitches had firmed up dramatically which allowed for a fast moving ball. The hurling training drills on Thursday evening clearly stuck with some superb 1st time striking of the moving sliotar in all matches.
A sign of a great clubman, Dublin legend Alan Brogan was back helping with the Plunketts U8s team and he very kindly stopped for photos with the Syls boys. We continue to welcome all new players who would like to get involved, with training every Thursday at 6.30pm at the Main gate Castle pitches on the Back Road.
