Meath to wait for referee's report

Published 13/07/2010

The Meath county board has made no decision on the possibility of a re-fixture of the Leinster SFC, saying more time is needed to get a copy of the referee's report.

It was decided that without a copy of the referee's match report, no instructions could be offered to delegates regarding any possible replay.

A late Joe Sheridan goal which gave them a 1-12 to 1-10 win over Louth should have been disallowed, referee Martin Sludden has admitted.

Meath's executive board will reconvene on Tuesday evening with representatives of the players, who held a separate meeting on Monday.
