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.,
