Good Meath performance in Hastings Cup debut

Meath u-21 manager Sean Barry at Ashbourne yesterday.

Meath proved too strong for Wicklow in their debut game in the u-21 Hastings Cup football at Ashbourne yesterday where a solid looking Royal County side dictated for most of the hour for a 2-18 to 1-6 victory.

Meath were ahead by 2-7 to 1-4 at the interval with the goals from Walterstown’s Rory O’Dowd and Curraha’s James McEntee.

Wicklow closed the gap to four points folloiwng a positive start to the second-half, but that was close as they got and the Meath lads eased away for a comfortable victory.

Meath manager Sean Barry used 20 players and will continue assessing the strengths of his panel next weekend when Leitrim visit the Royal County for a second round game in this competition.

That game will be played at Millbrook, Oldcastle.
