U/7's Impressive inaugural display in Broomfield!

The 2008 squad had an incredibly impressive first outing of competitive (but very friendly) matches in Broomfield this Saturday morning. The excitement was palpable with many of the squad awake from very early in anticipation of their first ever game. Binn Eadair and Naomh Mearnog were invited to compete in this friendly football & hurling blitz, and they fielded 5 and 3 teams respectively. Photoshoot over, new club jersey's distributed and the squad dispersed into their teams. The wait was over and the games began

Across 7 pitches these young boys from St. Sylvester's played with immense skill, spirit and heart. Cheered on by their coaches, mentors, parents and many of their grandparents, the Sylvester's squads were consistently fantastic. They posted impressive scores in every single game of the blitz and displayed many of the skills they have been building up on over the past 2 years. Their coach Feargal remarked at the end of play team talk, that he was very proud of how they all listened to their mentors on the pitch and how sporting they were to each other and their opponents throughout the morning. When Feargal says he thinks there's something very special about this group of young players, you get the feeling he might just be right.
