FORMER MEATH FOOTBALLER Joe Sheridan is set to make an unexpected return to the inter-county fold following a three-year absence, according to the Irish Independent.

Sheridan, who broke Louth hearts in the 2010 Leinster final, is understood to have been recalled to the panel as goalkeeper rather than as a forward, where he operated for the Royals during his previous career.

Paddy O’Rourke is Meath’s current number one choice for goalkeeper, with Conor McHugh providing back-up. Sheridan now appears to be coming in as another goalkeeping option for Andy McEntee’s charges.

Sheridan was cut from the Meath panel in 2013 by then boss Mick O’Dowd, along with fellow Meath stalwarts Brian Farrell, Peadar Byrne and Caoimhin King.

Sheridan suffered a torrent of abuse following the 2010 Leinster final where he was seen to have thrown the ball into the net at the end of the game to snatch the title.

He previously told The42 that his family received hate mail and offensive messages were sent to his phone in the aftermath of the game.
