Leinster Under 21 football preview & live score updates from Carlow v Westmeath


The Westmeath team to play Carlow at the I.T. Grounds in Carlow is one which comes with vast experience with eight of the Lake County’s starting XI regulars on the county’s senior panel.

They are goalkeeper Eoin Carberry, defenders Kieran Sheridan, Ben Moran and Kevin Maguire, midfielder Trevor Flanagan and forwards Ger Egan, John Heslin and Callum McCormack.

Heslin played a starring role in Westmeath’s dramatic one point win over Galway in the Allianz National Football League over the weekend and will start Wednesday’s clash with  ”the Scallion Aters” at full-forward.

Ger Egan, who also returned after a long injury layoff against Galway, starts at right half forward, while Davy Gavin will wear the wing back jersey.  Throw-in at the I.T. Grounds in Carlow is 7:30p.m. on Wednesday night.
