The future of Andy McEntee as Meath senior football manager was thrown into doubt last night when the executive of the Meath GAA county committee voted 8-7 against asking delegates to the county board to ratify his appointment for a further twelve months.

Meath Live understands that the decision came in the wake of correspondence from the manager some weeks ago in which he requested a two-year extension to his reign.

The Executive Committee met last night to discuss McEntee’s reappointment, but after a long debate, the decision to ratify the manager for another term was defeated by eight votes to seven.

 

That decision will now go to a Co Board meeting of club delegates where a vote on McEntee’s future will be taken.

McEntee was returned as Meath manager in September 2019 for a three-year term, but as always has been the case each year it is reviewed.

It appears now that some at the top table want a new manager in charge to bring Meath football into the future. Although as the vote shows the decision was not unanimous. There are clearly different views across the county and it will be interesting to see how the future pans out for McEntee.

Meath GAA said they will not be commenting further on this issue at this time.
