The club's fine start to 2017 continued with wins for both teams on Saturday afternoon.
The firsts battled to a scruffy 2-1 win over Hartstown Huntstown at Rockfield Park to extend their lead at the summit of LSL Major 1B to four points. Dave Higgins's stunning volley gave the blues the lead before the visitors levelled, only for Harry Crowe to plunder a late winner.
Meanwhile, the seconds beat Mid Sutton 2-0 in the Vere Deane Cup, with Andy Roe and Mikey Kane notching.

The club is happy to correct the record in relation to the scorer of our second goal in the 3-0 away at Phoenix in December. Following an appeal and a careful assessment of the relevant facts, the goal has been awarded to Harry Crowe, and not James O'Neill as was mistakenly reported at the time.
The correction leaves Crowe on a sensational tally of 19 goals for the season so far, from 18 appearances, closing in on Mark Sullivan's total of 21 from 26 games in 2012/13, and the Seaford Rock record (post-1997) of 23, by Eugene Duff in 2002/03.
Club historians are now sifting through dog-eared records to identify the all-time record (dating back to the founding of Seaford FC in 1971)
UPDATE: It has been confirmed that the all-time record for a single season is 33, by Noel McCreery in 1972/73.
UPDATE II: It has been pointed out that when goals in all matches (not just first team matches) are included, the modern record is held by Dan Kiely, who netted 24 times in the 2013/4 season.
The LSL winter transfer window has now closed, with January seeing a coupe of Seaford players move on to pastures new by joining intermediate clubs.
Goalkeeper Eoin English has signed for Greystones United after 18 months with Seaford. Eoin was first-team keeper for much of his time with Seaford, and indeed the highlight of his spell was his extraordinary display in the Leinster Junior Cup penalty shoot-out win over his new club in September 2015.
And Jimmy Hussey made a return to his former side Home Farm, playing in the second flight of the Leinster Senior League. The former Longford Town midfielder had been badly hampered by injury during his time with the club, having made just a single start since December 2015.
We thank both Eoin and Jimmy for their time with Seaford and wish them all the best with their new clubs.
Meanwhile, the squad has been boosted by the arrival of several new players for the second half of the season, including former Bray Wanderers man Conor Geoghegan, who joins his younger brothers Oisin and Fionn at the club.
