After being released by Dundalk before Christmas, Jimmy Corcoran could be about to establish himself as Meath’s new regular netminder for the 2021 campaign – whenever it happens.
It’s emerged that the Drumbarragh native is to link-up with Andy McEntee’s panel, as the Meath boss looks to remedy his goalkeeping conundrum which has proved extremely problematic in recent seasons. So far in his tenure, the Meath boss has used 11 different players between the sticks in various matches. Last year alone, three goalkeepers featured in just two games, at the beginning of the National league campaign.
Jimmy Corcoran is a former Irish underage International, and four years ago, was involved in a bizarre incident when he was controversially sent-off during a penalty shoot-out in the UEFA U-17 Championships.
Jimmy played for Cherry Orchard before joining Preston North End in the summer of 2018. After two seasons there, he was released, and in August last year, he joined Dundalk as back-up to Gary Rogers and Aaron McCarey.
However just before Christmas, Dundalk released him, along with Aaron McCarey.
