Five changes for Meath

Conor McHugh will start in goals for Meath against Louth on Sunday.

While Meath still have an outside chance of securing promotion from NFL Div 2 the likelihood of that is slim and so manager Mick O’Dowd has opted to make five changes from the team that defeated Down last Saturday for Sunday’s final game of the campaign against Louth at Drogheda.
Injuries picked up by Mickey Newman, Eoghan Harrington and Sean Curran in that win over Down have also forced O’Dowd’s hand and with Conor Gillespie, Brian Meade, Mickey Newman, Cillian O’Sullivan, Eamon Wallace and Davy Dalton all still ruled out the manager has no choice but to make changes.
Seamus Kenny, David Larkin and Brian McMahon will come into the team against Louth as direct replacements for Curran, Harrington and Newman, while Conor McHugh has been handed a rare start in goals and David Bray gets the nod ahead of Dalton McDonagh.

Meath (v Down) - C McHugh; D Keogan, K Reilly, C Young; S Kenny, D Tobin, D Carroll; B Menton, S O’Rourke; D Larkin, A Tormey, G Reilly; D Bray, S Bray, B McMahon. Subs - P O’Rourke, S Curran, P Gilsenan, P Harnan, D McDonagh, M O’Sullivan, S Gillespie, C McPartland, C Sheridan, D Lenihan.
