Five more members of the Antrim senior hurling squad have tested positive for Covid-19.

One player returned a positive test on Tuesday, leading to the entire squad then being tested.

On Wednesday evening, Croke Park facilitated ‘rapid-testing’ on the entire squad.

As a result, four more players and one member of the backroom staff have tested positive. Another player is also self-isolating having been identified as a close contact.

Antrim are scheduled to play Westmeath in the Joe McDonagh Cup in Belfast on Sunday.

The Saffrons intend to fulfil the fixture, but with a depleted squad.

In a statement, the Antrim County Board said:

“We in Antrim have confidence in all panel members and we put our best foot forward on Sunday.”
