Leinster SFC semi-final
A glorious opportunity to reach a Leinster final. That’s what both managers must be drumming into their players’ heads ahead of Sunday’s semi-final showdown between Westmeath and Louth in Croke Park. Not that the players themselves will need any reminding.
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. Down at home and Tipperary away are two tricky engagements that still have to be negotiated.
After a double U21 and senior clash with Meath last week, it is now the turn of another old foe, Laois, to come to town. First our seniors welcome the O’Moore men to Cusack Park for a make or break Division 2 game on Sunday at 2.30pm. Then on St Patrick’s Day it’s the turn of the U21s from both counties to contest the Leinster semi-final. What a treat of football on our doorstep at this early stage of the year.
