The League of Ireland's most prominent goalkeeper Gary Rogers has joined the Meath senior football backroom team for the coming year.

Rogers, a native of Meath, will take over the role of goalkeeping coach from Cormac Sullivan who has stepped away.

Rogers, who has featured on Irish international soccer squads in recent years, has an extensive coaching background with GAA teams and has featured on Meath junior teams in the past.

His arrival is one of a series of changes that sees former All-Ireland-winning midfielder Gerry McEntee also leave after two years with Louth-based coach Colm Nally coming in the opposite direction to link up with McEntee's brother Andy who is preparing for a third year at the helm.

Finian Murtagh, Donal Curtis and Gerry Cooney will remain on as selectors.

Nally was involved as a coach with Colin Kelly in Louth as they were promoted to Division 2 in 2017, having previously delivered Leinster intermediate glory for Meath club St Colmcille's the previous year.

He was managing Dublin club Castleknock this year before being brought on board with Meath.
