U21FCA semi-final St Sylvesters 0-11 Na Fianna 2-12 Big crowd in Broomfield expecting a cracker and they weren't disappointed, at least in the first half. This was U21 at it's best, end to end, fast flowing football, some great scores - make you winder why we under value this grade so much, big shame. We were even stevens in the first half until Fianna opened us up for a goal and we never really got close after.
The Under 16 footballers took the hills for their end-of-season outing with the squad hitting the M50 for a game of Footee – that’s golf played with a football! – at the old Dublin City Golf Club in Ballinascorney, near Tallaght.
AFL1 Top4 SF Replay St Sylvesters 2-18 Ballyboden St Endas 3-07 Gabby was delighted with the performance, great all round team effort with some super individual performances thrown in. Final against St Brigids Thursday 12th at Balgriffen.
Congrats to Gavin McArdle and Eugene Keating being selected in the Evening Herald Blue Stars for 2013
AFL6 Top4 Semi Final We lost by three points I think in a smashing game of football, I'll leave it to Declan or Shane to send a report but it was a very enjoyable game between two very good teams.
AHL6 Top4 Final Skerries Harps 4-10 St Sylvesters 1-8 Probably a fair reflection, we were mostly outclassed by a better balanced Harps team We did put up a great showing in the second half, the highlight a goal on the run by Eoin Kennedy and a few well worked points by Eoin McCarthy, Colm O'Connor and Jonny Conway. Maybe Colm will send a report. Well done lads on a very competitive season, hurling into December ain't bad.
The u13 football panel - 28 kids and their dads headed to Mayo last Saturday week to play a challenge match vs Aghamore, Co Mayo and Michael Glaveys of Roscommon. Both matches were played at the Connacht GAA centre of Excellence in Bekan, Co Mayo. This is a state of the art facility outside Ballyhaunis with a fully equipped gymnasium, staff rooms, meeting areas etc , 4 pitches and 1 all weather facility (indoor pitch is also underway). Many thanks to John Cox and Aghamore GAA Club for arranging access to these facilities.
AFL1 Semi Final AET St Sylvesters 1-17 Ballyboden St Endas 2-14 Just like Ireland v All Blacks we were hit with the ultimate last second sickener with Boden scoring a scrappy goal with the last kick of extra time. At least we were 3 up and therefore get a 2nd bite but it was a match we deserved to win and should have won
MHC B SF Lucan Sarsfields 4-06 St Sylvesters 2-05 Three goals against us in the first half all but finished our Championship run. Philip hit the post at one end and Lucan drove through for a goal at the other. Two of our backs collided and let them in for another. We got a grip around the middle but we struggled with the size of the field and hit five long range efforts wide. At 3-05 to 0-04 at the break but came out fighting in the second half but, unfortunately the scores failed to come against a tough Lucan rearguard and when their classy full forward goaled again on the break we were in deep trouble.
U21 A FC St Sylvesters 4-10 Castlenock 0-08 Yes, it was a comprehensive win over a Castlenock team who had defeated Vincents in the previous round and looked pretty sharp early on. Jack got us off to a great start high fielding a superb cross field ball from Alan Foy and burying in the net. Castlenock steadied themselves and scored three good points but the Syls rearguard got on top and we knocked off six straight points to lead 1-06 to 04 at the break.

The junior hurlers lost their league final play-off to a very mobile Skerries Harps who got the first half goals that made the difference. There were some very good performances especially from the minors. Greg Hannon has a very competitive team here playing in his own image and likeness.
We send sincere condolences to the Maguire family on the recent death of Noel, affectionately known as Bowwow, after a long illness, bravely borne. Noel and Terry have always been great supporters of St Sylvesters.
. . . on the birth of their daughter Rebecca Penrose . . . . mom and baby reported to be in great form . . . . (and dad) . . . best wishes from all at Syls.
