Meath savour victory after turbulent week

Following a stormy few days for Meath hurling the boys in green and gold chalked up a welcome 0-17 to 1-8  victory over Down in the Christy Ring Cup at Trim today.

With the players in conflict with the Co Board over payment of expenses and the provision of equipment such as hurling grips, there was a doubt whether this game would be played or not at one stage last week.

However, a meeting between a group representing the hurlers and the Co Board on Thursday night ended with both camps sorting out their differances.

The players showed up for this game and put in a strong second-half display to wrap up a morale-boosting victory.

Meath led most of the way but the only goal came from Down's Daniel Toner just before the break. At the interval the sides were level, 1-5 to 0-8.

Steven Clynch went on to top-score for the Royal County with eight points, seven from frees.

With Willie McGrath and Stephen Morris in excellent form, Meath found an extra gear in the second-half to win comfortably at the end.

Former Meath footballer Caoimhin King also made a significant contribution with two points.
