The 15 Bs have now completed all of their league games. In what was a very tight league they finished a respectable 4th despite being on the wrong side of a number of very close finishes. Plenty to look forward to for the championship

Best of Luck to U14B, Division 6S Playoff at home this Friday evening against Croi Ro Naofa, all support welcome.


May 8th,  Lucan Sarsfields 8-09, St Colmcilles 2-07, Lucans 4th win in a row, really tough game but a great performance by the girls.

May 21st, Balbriggan 1-01, Lucan Sarsfields 2-09, Tough and physical game, heated at times but super performances from Caroline Lee at full back and both midfielders Louise McSweeney and Naomi Casey. Lisa McMenemy also sent over 4 points and all the girls were at their best today.

Small Sided Games

U8, U9 and U11, Sunday 14 May, A busy morning as three U8LF teams lined out against Castleknock on the All-Weather and four U9LF teams on AGP1 Playing Castleknock and St Finians, followed by two U11LF games against St Maurs. Over 70 Lucan Sarsfields girls playing go-games and showing great kicking, passing and tackling skills with some fantastic scores. Lucan Sarsfields also supplied nine referees, some of whom were taking charge for the first time. Well done to all concerned.

U10 no games in the last while but looking forward to going to St Sylvesters this weekend. thanks to all for supporting the recent Social night featuring Arthur

U12 Game against Cuala  - pitch unplayable, Game against Thomas Davis, one win and one lose - we gave them players on the one we lost!  Everyone turned up that day. Clann Na Gael - no game, they could not field due to Feile and speech and drama!  Judes - one win and one lose - very poor turn out - May is full of communions etc. We are scheduled against Judes again this Saturday and have been invited to Laois to play a tournament on Sunday!
