Best wishes to Caitlin and the Dublin U14 girls in the Leinster Final this Saturday in Clane 3.15pm.
SHC B Naomh Olaf 1-08 St Sylvesters 1-08 Great fighting second half display almost got us the win only for two late frees to pull us back. The first half was a repeat of the Vincents game. We gave up a softish goal, Olafs hit a few nice points and we responded with lots of good hurling but spoiled by poor shooting, finishing 1-05 to 0-03 at the break.
The U15 A footballers achieved an impressive 7 point victory over division 2 leaders Skerries Harps in Bridgefield on Sunday morning. From the outset, Syls made life very hard for Skerries allowing them no time to settle into a rhythm. The whole team worked as a unit throughout the first half breaking down Skerries attacks with tremendous defending and tackling all over the pitch
AHL9: Syls 0-16 Realt Dearg 1-4 (Broomfield 25th May 2015) Another entertaining game from the AHL9 juniors and another win. Realt Dearg provided a lively challenge, their no 14 causing us a lot of problems. After conceding an early softest goal, Syls settled and started to pick off some nice points against the breeze. Pat Hoyne , David Kennedy and Eoin Kennedy all getting on the score sheet .
St Sylvesters are proud to announce our newest sponsor, Permanent TSB ! Chairman Ciaran Meehan is here with Stephen McConnell Manager of Permanaent TSB who are now open for business in Malahide
The AFL9 team kept the flag flying with another emphatic win away to AIB 3-14 to 2-03 while the AFL5 team too a heavy defeat away to Na Fianna 3-17 to 1-05 and the Inters also lost away to the same Na Fianna. The seniors had an impressive win over previously unbeaten Fingal Ravens.
AFL1 St Sylvesters A ten point win in a game where we showed a bit of drive and style with something close to a full selection available. Jockser was back in the middle with Ross, Shane, Gary and Beano were devestating at half forward with Collie, Scooby and Glen very effective at half back. Pity we let Ravens upset us late in the game where they made a little comeback, having been well out of it mid second half.
U16A Shield Final We lost by two points in the end to Ballymun after being behind by 9 with ten minutes remaining. Peter sent some pictures.
U16 D Championship Final St Sylvesters 3-10 Na Fianna 1-02 Great to go the Parnell Park and win. To be fair tioNa Fianna the score did not reflect an excellent competitive and sporting game where we simply took our scores and they didn't but in all other aspects it was a pretty even game. I hope John has a chance to send a full report. Congratulations to Brian Murray on a well deserved Man of the Mattch Award.
