Cavan senior football manager Val Andrews has tendered his resignation after seemingly losing the support of his playing squad.

It was reported that members of the squad met on Tuesday night, where a majority voted for a change of management.

A statement from the Cavan county board confirmed that the players met, with the blessing of the board and management staff, and that Andrews has now resigned due to issues arising from the meeting.

The Breffni narrowly avoided relegation to Allianz FL Division 4 after winning only two games in the spring camapaign.

The statement from the county board paid tribute to the work Andrews has done and praised him for taking what was a tough decision.

"This decision is yet another example of the genuine interest and love Val Andrews has for Cavan football," it read.

"Val feels that for the overall well being of the team which he worked selflessly with, a speedy decision is necessary to afford Cavan county board every opportunity to make alternative arrangements for the up coming Ulster senior football championship and in doing so he wishes the best for Cavan football.

"The chairman and officers of Cavan county board, who enjoyed a close relationship with Val, would like to express our gratitude to him for his efforts in our county, and wish him and his family health and good luck in the future," the statement concluded.

Elsewhere there is growing pressure on the Meath manager Seamus McEneaney after the Royal county were relegated from Allianz League Division 2.

The Monaghan native saw his side lose heavily to Louth last Sunday to end a spring campaign that started well, but eventually went off the rails after a narrow defeat to Kildare.
