Weekend Preview - 22 February
Rockfield Park is the place to be at noon on Saturday , as both Seaford teams are in action simultaneously on the two pitches, as the club hosts two of Dublin's most storied and prestigious clubs.
The firsts welcome St James's Gate, less than a month after the two sides previously clashed in Major 1B. That match couldn't have been tighter, as Seaford netted a late equaliser through Garrett Connolly and were centimetres away from making it 2-3 in injury time, before Gate went down the other end. The backdrop to this weekend's clash is an extremely tight division with both sides just outside the relegation zone, so every point counts. The home side gave themselves some breathing space with a win over Leixlip the last time out in league action, even if they stumbled to a win over FC Transylvania in the cup last weekend.
The seconds' clash against Pegasus St James's is their very first league match of 2018, having only taken to the field for acup defeat to Mid Sutton so far. Whilst Seaford find themselves comfortably in mid table in Division 3, Pegs are very much mired in a relegation scrap. Alate Chris Monk header was all that separated the sides when they met in August.
