Clarke and Gonoud named on teams of the week

Aonghus Clarke and Jamie Gonoud have been named on the hurling and football teams of the week.

Castletown Geoghegan stalwart Clarke has been included in the's hurling team of the week following Westmeath's dramatic draw with Wexford in Cusack Park last Saturday.

Joe Fortune's men's next encounter is a must-win clash against Laois in Portlaoise this Saturday evening (6pm).

Westmeath's senior footballers may have exited the Leinster championship when they were defeated by Kildare in Croke Park on Sunday, but Jamie Gonoud's goal scoring performance was rewarded with a place on the football team of the week.

In the draw for inaugural Tailteann Cup yesterday morning, Westmeath were drawn away to Laois in the quarter final of the Southern section of the competition. The match is scheduled to be played on the weekend of May 28/29.
