Laois GAA present Masters team with new jerseys ahead of Westmeath clash

Peter O'Neill presents Leo Turley with a new set of Laois masters jerseys

The Laois Masters team have been officially presented with their brand new set of jerseys ahead of their Round 2 clash with Westmeath this evening.

The Over-40s wore their new kit against Dublin in Round 1 two weeks ago but the official handover took place recently.

Laois County Board chairman Peter O’Neill presented Leo Turley, who is part of the management along with Barney Maher and Tomas Brett, with the new jerseys.

Peter said: “We are delighted to help the lads out and we would like to wish them all the very best for the remainder of the championship.

“Their first round game against Dublin drew a big crowd and for many young fans, this was their first opportunity to see some of our greatest ever players in action once again.

“I think the Masters football is a brilliant initiative and I think it is something that will continue to grow in popularity over time.”

The Laois Masters football team took on 2018 All-Ireland champions Dublin in Stradbally two weeks ago where they came up short by four points following a strong second half battle and a hat-trick from Greg Ramsbottom.

Former county stars like Eamonn Delaney, David Sweeney, Noel Garvan, Colm Parkinson, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Greg Ramsbottom, Shane Cooke and Chris Conway all took to the field for the game.

Laois’s next game takes place against Westmeath in Saint Joseph’s GAA club in Westmeath at 7.30pm tonight.
