Minor A Hurlers finish on a high

Report attached from the Minor A hurling game played at the same time as the B hurlers were playing at Oldtown. I must say all the minor games I've seen this year in both football and hurling have been excellent and I'm looking forward to the championships starting in September.

Minor Hurlers come up short at Oldtown

MHL5 League Final Wild Geese 1-14 St Sylvesters 2-06 We lost by five points after a fine competitive game to Wild Geese. Syls started well with two excellent early goals from Sean Drumm but the home side picked away at us, their numbers 8 and 12 hitting some excellent points, Brian Murray and Gavin Hydes responding for us. We lost Murray to injury at half time, he looked very uncomfortable and I believe he went for treatment so hope he is ok. That knocked us back a little in the second half but stayed within three points until the last few minutes. Great achievement fielding a second competitive hurling team. Congrats to Wild Geese, they are really pushing hurling in Fingal and great credit to them,

AHL 8 Update - going well

AHL 8 Update - going well

The Junior B hurling team heads into the 3-week competition break in a healthy state. In the league, we had a good win over promotion rivals Wild Geese on 30th June by 0-17 to 1-10 where Colm O Connor’s 11 points were the winning of the game. Immediately after was another league match on Leinster Hurling final morning against Na Gael Oga out in St Catherine’s Pk when Gary Plunkett, flanked by Kieran Canny gave a great full back display in a 0-11 to 1-4 win with Deccy Markey in good scoring form.

Inter hurlers lose to Olafs

AHL3 We lsot by 4 in the end but this was a game we easily could have won, we simply hit too many wides at critical times and our heads seemed to drop late in the game. We lost earlier in the week to Finbarrs in the Championship but, unlike that game, I thought we looked the better team on Saturday and was disapppinted the way we fell away. Falvey scored a cracking early goal, Alan Kenny and Dara Flaherty were solid at the back and Killian was the pick of the forwards.

Minors lose at Lusk

MFL2 GrB We ended up losing by five points but had been much further behind in the last quarter against a handy looking Lusk outfit. Beautiful morning with a good crowd, we never reached the intensity achieved against Marnógs earlier in the week.

Seamus Begley visited Syls

Regulars at our clubhouse had a nice treat on Friday when Danny brought Irish Trad legend Seamus Begley by to say hello. Seamus, not a stranger to Syls, played a few tunes and reminded us that we should have a bit of music in the club from time to time. maith fear, go raibh maith agat.

The Team of '96 - 20 years on

The Team of '96 - 20 years on

Brian Talty reminded me to mention that it was 20 years since Syls won our only ever Dublin Senior Football Championship. I took a look at my archives, courtesy of Brian Colgan a few years ago, and was struck by the number of lads still very involved in coaching, some still playing, a great tribute to St Sylvesters.. Have a root through the pictures and news clippings, pretty cool stuff. I think Talty said he was going to buy a pint some evening, maith fear, mines a Guinness.

Facility improvements in Broomfield

Facility improvements in Broomfield

Led by Liam Foley a small group of volunteers gave up their time for the 2nd Saturday in a row and tackled the hedging , balls stops on pitch2 and our sponsors signs on the pitch 1. Liam brought some machinery for height access to tie up the ball stop nets. The lads also tidied up the hedging allowing much easier access if any balls end up in the ditch. They also removed the rubbish from the dressing rooms and Liam has committed to do this on a weekly basis.

Minor A hurlers win again - share top spot

Minor A hurlers win again - share top spot

MHL2 I don't see the score posted but I believe we won by a single point over Isles of the Sea (Scoil Ui Conaill and Clanna Gael Fontenoy). The first half had some excellent hurling from both sides and it was great to see some of the minor footballers show up to ensure we had a strong side as it's often hard to field at this time of year.

Junior As beat Crumlin

Junior As beat Crumlin

AFL5 Lively game on pitch two and an important win for Syls. I was particularly impressed with the running and point scoring of Alex Wright, it's been a while since I've seen him play.. Andy at full back and Airy at Centre give us a solid defense and with lads like Niall Higgens, Kevin Lynott, Eoin Hammill we had a good side out for our fourth adult game of the weekend.

Dublin Ladies win Leinster – Nicole is player of the Match

Dublin Ladies won their fifth Leinster title in a row in style, beating Westmeath comprehensively, 4-21 to 0-7. All three Syls girls, Sinead Aherne, Niamh McEvoy and Nicole Owens, made significant contributions with Nicole winning the Player of the Match trophy on the back of 6 wonderful points from play as well as being involved in several moves that lead to other scores.

Junior Bs lose to Cuala

Junior Bs lose to Cuala

AFL8 St Sylvesters 0-10 Cuala 1-11 I guess Cuala will be celebrating their revenge for last nights defeat down in Dalkey. It was a good competitive game, level four or five timesbut we took the wrong options in attack in the last quarter and Cuala, with a strong wind in their backs, we more economical with their chances. Lots of good displays from the likes of Rob Taylor, James McKennaByrne, Dylan McEvoy and Sean Halligan, and it was great to see an evergreen Shay Keogh still tormenting a full back.

Good win for seniors over Cuala

Good win for seniors over Cuala

AFL1 St Sylvesters 3-18 Cuala 1-09 Probably a fair reflection of this game, we came out of the blocks quickly against a strong wind and knocked over a string of points and seemed to be moving faster and more decisively than I had previously noticed. Alan Foy and Gary were running hard up the middle, long balls from Ed to Micháel and Conor Meaney also a feature. Ross blocked a clearance and solo'ed through for a goal that gave us a six point half time lead.

Inters let it slip against Brigids

Inters let it slip against Brigids

AFL3 I think we lost by three against Brigids, we looked pretty good in the first half against the wind, defending bravely and staying within a few points. I didn't see the second half as the game clashed with the seniors on the other field. Pity they always clash, it's hard to watch both teams.
