Andy McEntee's reign as Meath senior football manager could be set to come to an end amid speculation that he's lost the backing of the Royals' County Board.

The Meath Chronicle reports that the Royals' County Board Executive has voted against him staying in charge for 2022.

It's claimed that eight of 15 delegates voted against ratifying McEntee for a sixth year in charge. Meath contested back-to-back Leinster Senior Football finals in 2019 and 2020 and McEntee pointed to their performance against Dublin this summer as a sign of progress.

“Why wait until we’re 11 points down before we start having a cut?,” he said after they ran the then All-Ireland champions close at Croke Park.

“I’d say it’s a mixture of regret and a little bit of frustration, maybe. The second half was fantastic and the effort but why give a team like Dublin an 11-point lead?

“You’re not giving yourself much of a chance but the commitment was huge, the execution was good and skill level was good. We just left ourselves with a bit much to do.”

The former Ballyboden St Enda's manager's future will now be determined by the clubs of Meath at a full County Board meeting.

Meath County Board said they would not be commenting further on the issue when contacted by OTB Sports.
