The Executive Committee of the Meath county board is recommending that Seamus McEnaney's term as manager of the Meath senior footballers be terminated. 

They met on Thursday night after McEnaney refused a request to quit the job following Meath's relegation to Division 3 of the league. 

The Committee are also recommending that former boss Sean Boylan be appointed as McEnaney's successor. Boylan - a four-time All-Ireland winning manager - recently stepped down as Director of Football in the county.

The full meeting of the county board will take place next Wednesday night in Navan when the recommendations will be put to the delegates and it's expected that McEnaney's time in charge of Meath will come to an end.

Meath begin their Leinster championship campaign on 27 May against Wicklow, and the hope is within the county that the man who brought Meath football back to life in the 1980s will be in charge.

Sean Boylan stepped down as Meath manager in 2005 after 23 years at the helm.
