Prodigal: Joe Sheridan returns to reinforce Royals

The embattled Meath camp has received a major fillip as powerful forward, Joe Sheridan, will make a surprise return to the panel.

IT IS BELIEVED that Meath are preparing to receive a major boost this week by welcoming back star forward, Joe Sheridan.

Sheridan left the panel less than two months ago, after the fourth round loss to Galway,  moving to the United States for work reasons.

In the meantime, Meath suffered the plight of relegation to Division three and manager, Seamus McEnaney, became embroiled – and survived – a heave against him.

A source close to the Meath panel confirmed to this morning that Sheridan is indeed preparing to return home from Boston to the Royal county.

Any return before the end of the month would give Sheridan ample time to join in on preparation for Meath’s Leinster Championship opener against Wicklow on 27 May.

With disunity rife in Meath in recent weeks, Wicklow have been eyeing up that fixture as one where an upset is on the cards. McEnaney, for his part, has always maintained a focus on Championship results to gauge his success.

The return of Sheridan will provide great improvement to Meath. Not only in terms of a quality physical presence in the forward line, but also mentally as the camp battle on despite any hurdles placed in their way.
