The Majors start a fortnight's break from league campaign with a Leinster Junior Cup first round tie against ROC Celtic.
It's been a difficult season so far for Alan Burns's men, who have found life tough going in the second tier of LSL Saturday after two consecutive promotions. An opening-day win over Templeogue United was followed by a five-game winless streak, culminating in a chastening defeat at Ballymun United last time out.
But that difficult run was characterised by a host of key men being unavailable, and with a shortening injury list and the end of the holiday season, it is expected that a number of important players will make their return in Ballyfermot this weekend.
The hosts are a new club who have so far had a flawless record in their short existence, winning all five of their matches in UCFL Division 2, so the Penguins are expecting a tough game as they travel to Le Fanu Park.
The following week will see Seaford on the road again, this time to face Usher Celtic in the FAI Junior Cup.
Paulie Morris's Premier Penguins get a quick chance for revenge as they face Baldoyle United for the second Saturday in a row, this time at home in Rockfield Park..
It was a bad day at the office last time out for Seaford, who were routed 4-1 despite a debut goal for Jamie McCaul, but Morris will take encouragement from a much healthier-looking panel to select from this weekend. Whereas he was unable even to fill his bench a week previously, he now has several key players returning to the fold and a much stronger performance is expected.
It's a been a mixed bag of results so far in 2021/22 with gritty wins over Esker Celtic and MPFC bookended by the opening-day loss against Terenure College and last weekend's disappointment.
Kick off is at 12.00pm on Saturday.
Both Seaford sides approach the weekend's fixtures in strong form after recording wins and clean sheets a week earlier.
The Majors opened their campaign with a dominant performance and all three points against Templeogue United, and now head south to face one of amateur football's leading clubs, Wayside Celtic, whose opening fixture ended in a 5-2 defeat to Home Farm. Kick off is 2.30pm in Jackson Park, Kilternan.
The Premiers dug out a win at Esker Celtic last week courtesy of Oli Wright;s winner, and now face one of the division's newcomers in MP FC, at 12.00 at Rockfield Park. The men from the north inner city have a win and a defeat in their two matches so far.
The Majors start lift in the second tier of the LSL's Saturday section with a home match against Templeogue United.
The past eleven months have seen a couple of high-profile departures, as key players moved away from the area, but the bulk of the squad which earned a second straight promotion has been retained, and there have been some exciting new additions who are expected to make their debut this weekend.
The visitors have already started their season, losing 0-1 to a very youthful Portmarnock side a week previously.
Meanwhile, Paulie Morris's Premier side will travel to Esker Celtic aiming to secure their first points of the season, after an unlucky defeat against Terenure College in the curtain-raiser.
309 days after their last competitive outing, Seaford's Premiers finally return to league action with a home match to start the 2021/22 campaign.
After rallying to an impressive fourth-placed finish during the previous season, the hosts will be aiming to go at least one spot higher this time around and secure promotion.
Now under the management of Paulie Morris, the side remained unbeaten throughout pre-season , having retained the core of the existing panel and added a number of impressive newcomers, as well several top players from the past who are set to make long-awaited comebacks this weekend.
It's a first competitive meeting in recent seasons with Nure, who suffered relegation from the Saturday Premier division the last time around.
Kick off is 12.00pm at Rockfield Park in Blackrock.
Although the competitive action must wait for another few weeks, Seaford finally played their first match in more than nine months and secured an impressive pre-season win over Railway Union.
The visitors have developed a slick side in recent years and eased to promotion during their first campaign back in the LSL during 2019/20, and they had the better of a first half played in blistering (by Irish standards) heat in Blackrock.
Railway had seen some presentable chances go begging before they opened the scoring on 25 minutes, with Darragh Connolly having Penguins' best chance, as he fired wide when put through one-on-one after some neat combination play in midfield.
Seaford changed their entire eleven at the break and that made for a very different game in the second half, with the home side good value for their equaliser when it came via debutant Dan Kennedy, who pounced on some slack defending to run through unopposed and slot past the keeper.
And the navy blues' winner came in the final ten minutes after tireless striker Stephen Canavan was tripped in the box as he lined up a shot, enabling Ian Nolan to bury the spot kick and secure the win.,
Almost five months after our last training session, and some 249 days after the end of the previous campaign, we are finally ready to begin our preparations for the 2020-21 season, which will be our fiftieth since the club was founded as Seaford FC.
We are back in action on Monday 10 May at 7.15pm in Rockfield Park in Blackrock for limited-contact training in accordance with the COVID guidelines from the FAI and HSE guidelines

About fourteen months after we re-convened for pre-season, the campaign has finally concluded with fourth-placed finishes for both Seaford sides, courtesy of the Premiers' win over Dublin Airport.

And we'll be back in no time with training ahead of the 2020/21 season starting on Monday 14 September. Contact Alan on 086 3612381 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The Majors trounced Pegasus St James's in their final match of the season.... but still fell some way short of their target to overhaul the goal difference deficit to third-placed Kilnamanagh, so it looks like another season in Major 1A for the club.
Overall it's been a very positive season, with both teams looking set for fourth placed finishes in their respective divisions.
We'll have full reports on the 2019/20 campaign up on the website soon.
The Majors have bounced back from some disheartening results either side of lockdown with three straight wins to move them level with Kilnamanagh as they seek a second consecutive promotion.
Following a resounding win over Drumcondra and a gritty victory at Kilnamanagh, two Al Kennedy goals secured a 2-0 success at home against Columbas Rovers. Read all about it here.
