Seaford's Premiers weren't quite able to maintain their early-season promise throughout the full campaign as the Penguins struggled to find consistency during a highly unusual season.
It was Paulie Morris's first campaign in charge of the second string and despite scoring in every single one of their matches in all competitions and mounting a brave cup run in the final weeks, it was ultimately a season of frustration for Seaford.
After a narrow opening-day defeat against eventual champions Terenure College, Morris's men went on a strong run, recoding four wins out of five, including a 1-0 squeaker at Esker Celtic and two incredible comeback wins secured by stunning last-minute goals, namely Cian McCabe's against Montpelier and Niall Holleran's against Baldoyle.
But a couple of chastening defeats set the Penguins back, and their commanding win over Stella Maris proved to be their only victory in seven, putting paid to hopes of promotion.
It was still December when the league campaign finished up with a home win over Larkview, and there. followed a three-month wait for a return to action, in the form of the new Superleague Championship. There was a promising start in Group B, as the Prems smashed Balbriggan 5-0, and followed that up with strong performances to draw with Kilmore Celtic and Tallaght Town., but heavy defeats in the return games against those opponents put paid to any hopes of progress in the competition.
Instead, attention turned to the Wally Wynne Cup. After receiving a first-round bye, Seaford made light work of Lorcan Celtic, before an incredibly dramatic win over local rivals Sallynoggin Pearse in the quarter-finals, with Joe O'Hara netting a memorable winner in the last minute of extra time. But unfortunately there was similar excitement in the semi, as the Penguins raced into a two-goal lead over Balbriggan before conceding to virtually the last kick of the game to suffer a heartbreaking elimination.
