John Evans will join Seamus McEnaney’s management team at Meath
Kerry native and former Tipperary football manager John Evans is on his way to join Seamus McEnaney in an effort to try and re-establish the Royals as a football powerhouse. Evans joined the Meath footballers last night for his first session as they prepare for the Leinster Senior Football Championship (LSFC).
After the recent turmoil in the Royal County Evans said he had to give the position a lot of careful though and consideration before accepting the role. The Killorgan man said “I was resigned to doing a bit of relaxing after leaving Tipperary but I decided to take a shot at this (Meath). Seamus McEnaney saw me an asset to his coaching and that’s the reason he came to me and asked me to come on board”.
Evans resigned from the Premier County last year after completing four seasons with the side. In his time he managed to help Tipperary gain promotion to Division 2, they won a Munster under 21 football title and an All Ireland minor title last year. Evans will have his work cut out for him as the current Meath panel has been relegated to division 3 after a disastrous league campaign.
