Referee Martin Sludden struck after Louth get robbed of Leinster Final

Updated: July 11, 2010

Ref Martin Sludden from Tyrone was attacked by a Louth supporter after Meath got a controversial goal to win their first Leinster Football Final in eight years.

Meath got a goal four minutes into injury time but replays showed that the score should have been disallowed as Meath’s Joe Sheridan threw the ball over the line. It was also a square ball moments before.

Kerry legend and RTE pundit Pat Spillane said that Louth should be awarded a replay but it looks unlikely unless Meath offer one.

Meath county board will meet on Monday evening to discuss the matter.
