Timing, they say is everything. If ever Westmeath football needed a boost it is now. Having mixed it with the big boys and tasted a certain amount of success over the past decade, we are now experiencing leaner times. Relegated from Division 1 last year, we are now almost certain to be relegated to Division 3, having not picked up a point in this year’s league campaign to date.
