Seamus McEnaney has come under pressure from county officials to step down as manager of Meath's football team.

A recommendation that McEnaney be replaced by former Meath boss Sean Boylan has been tabled by the county's management committee.

It is to be discussed by the county board on Wednesday in the wake of Meath's relegation to Division Three.

On Wednesday McEnaney was given 24 hours to consider his position but he resisted calls to stand down.

Former Monaghan manager McEnaney has presided over 12 defeats out of 18 matches in league and championship.

Meath's next game is the Leinster Championship opener against Wicklow on 27 May.

Boylan was in charge of Meath for 23 years up to 1995 and led the Royals to four All-Ireland titles.

He recently stepped down after a brief spell as director of football with the county.
