Westmeath Hurlers Look To Guarantee League Final Spot In London

By Gerry Buckley

Michael Ryan’s charges will be on ‘foreign’ soil for a 12.30 pm throw-in at the revamped Emerald Grounds. The one-point win in Trim last Saturday has put the men in maroon and white firmly in control of their own destiny in Division 2A, but a victory in London can’t be taken for granted. Yours truly was one of many who looked on in horror four years ago as a last-gasp attack by the home team resulted in the narrowest of narrow wides, allowing Brian Hanley’s men to escape with a draw. However, the visitors should be strong enough to make it four wins out of four, thereby guaranteeing a spot in the divisional decider with a game in hand.
