Westmeath footballers have the opportunity to reach the first Leinster final at minor level since 2000 when they travel to Navan on Saturday to do battle with the Royals. Tom Carr has a very talented squad at his disposal and while they will wear the underdogs tag, they are well capable of causing an upset. At u16 level the Westmeath lads held the upper hand so there is no reason why they can’t do likewise two years on.
Tom Carr’s Westmeath minors kicked an impressive 2-13 as they ran out comfortable nine-point winners over a limited Wicklow side in a windy Cusack Park last Saturday. Despite playing against the considerable wind in the opening half it was the home side that made the brighter start and had 2-3 on the board after just 10 minutes.
Athlone u16 footballers put in an inspired second half performance to see off the challenge of a highly fancied Coralstown/Kinnegad side in the precursor to the senior final replay last Sunday. The blues had wind advantage in the opening half but failed to bring their shooting boots and trailed 0-4 to 0-3 at the break.
