FL4 round-up: Model march on
19 March 2017
Wexford's Ben Brosnan.
It's five wins from five for promoted Wexford, who beat London by 0-13 to 0-9 in Wexford Park.
The Exiles, who are bottom of the table, led by three at the break, but Seamus McEnaney's men did enough to guarantee themselves third-tier football in 2018.
Unbeaten Westmeath are surely set to join the Slaneysiders in Division Three as they moved up the table onto nine points courtesy of a comfortable 0-19 to 0-14 defeat of Wicklow in Mullingar.
Westmeath's Kelvin Reilly with Anthony McLoughlin of Wicklow.

And there were goals from Iain Corbett and Darragh Treacy in each half at Newcastlewest as Limerick enjoyed an exciting 2-11 to 0-15 win over Leitrim.
