Our visitors

Crusaders leapfrogged Larne into second place on Goal Difference, with last week’s 2-0 win away to Dungannon Swifts. Philip Lowry has been the standout campaigner for the Crues of late, with the experienced midfielder having bagged eight goals to date.

A win for either side would take them into top spot, with leaders Glentoran not kicking off until Saturday.

The Inver Reds

Larne suffered their first league defeat of the season in last Friday’s 4-0 reverse at the Oval. Overall, it has been an excellent start to the campaign, with only four of the opening 11 league games having been played at Inver. The home record has also proven to be a strong one with three wins and draw from those opening four games, with no goals conceded so far.

The previous meeting between the two sides, played at Seaview, ended in a 1-1 draw. Leroy Millar struck late on to salvage a draw for the 10 men of Larne.

Larne are back on the road in the Danske Bank Premiership on Saturday as they make the short trip up the M2 to take on reigning Champions, Linfield. It’s set to be big encounter at Windsor Park, in the 3pm kick-off. Take a look below for all you need to know ahead of the game in our Landmark Match Guide below.

Linfield

By their own high standards, Linfield have had a somewhat indifferent start to their league campaign to date. David Healy’s side currently occupy sixth place, after five wins, a draw and three defeats in their opening nine league games. Their latest outing was a 3-2 win at home to Glenavon on Tuesday evening, when Eetu Vertainen scored a late winner as the Blues came from behind to claim the points.

In six meetings between the sides last season, there were two wins apiece and two draws in what have typical of closely run games since Larne’s return to the Premiership.

The Inver Reds

Larne come into this game as the Premiership leaders, having consolidated their place at the top with last Friday’s impressive 4-0 win at home to Cliftonville.

Lee Bonis got off the mark in the league with a five-minute hat-trick, while Tiernan Lynch’s men made it nine clean sheets in their opening 13 games, in all competitions.

With seven wins and two draws from their opening nine games, Larne go to Windsor with confidence but knowing a stern examination awaits.

Our visitors

Ballymena United arrive at Inver Park boosted by Saturday’s 2-0 win at home to Portadown, their first league win in six outings. The three points were enough to move David Jeffrey’s side into ninth place in the table.

United booked their place in the last eight of the Shield, thanks to a 2-1 win away to Newington in the first round.

The winner of Tuesday’s tie will face a trip to either Carrick Rangers or Dundela in the semi-finals.

The Inver Reds

Larne come into the game having moved to the top of the Danske Bank Premiership in their last outing, courtesy of a 2-0 league win away to Newry City.

Indeed, the only time Larne have tasted defeat this season was last week’s 2-1 defeat away to Annagh United in the Bet McLean League Cup.

Tiernan Lynch’s men also arrive into this one as holders of the competition, having won it in the previous two seasons.

Should tonight’s game be level after 90 minutes, there will be a penalty shoot-out to decide the winners.

Larne’s Bet McLean League Cup campaigns continues as we travel to take on Annagh United at the BMG Arena in Portadown on Tuesday evening.

Annagh United

Ciaran McGurgan’s side have enjoyed an impressive start to their Championship campaign, currently sitting in second place, three points behind Loughgall. Among their squad is former Larne defender Paul Finnegan, currently on loan from Portadown. They are on course to emulate last season, when they also finished in second place, narrowly losing to neighbours Portadown in the relegation/promotion play-off.

They will come into this game with confidence, with back-to-back victories against Dundela and H&W Welders, with McGurgan’s side booking their place at this stage of the competition after a 4-0 win away to Bangor in September.

The Inver Reds

Larne’s own fine start to the season means this clash will see second in the Championship take on second in the Premiership. The Invermen ran out 5-1 winners against Lisburn Distillery in the previous round, which is one of five games in a row Tiernan Lynch’s side have won coming into this game.

The Inver boss has made significant changes to his squad in the cup games this term, but it remains to be seen whether he will do this once more. Matty Lusty comes into this game as the competition’s top goalscorer, having bagged a hat-trick against Distillery in the previous round.

After a spell of fixtures away from home, Larne return to Inver Park on Saturday for a big game under the lights against Coleraine.

Kick-off for this Danske Bank Premiership clash is 5.30pm and you can find out all you need to know in our Landmark Match Guide below, with plenty going on to make a day of it at Inver.

Our visitors

Coleraine arrive at Inver Park with three familiar faces facing their former club, in the form of Conor McKendry, Dean Jarvis and Lee Lynch. Oran Kearney’s men have enjoyed a promising start to the season, having taken 15 points from their opening seven games. It leaves the Bannsiders one point ahead of Larne in 3rd place, although they have played one game more.

Kearney’s men also take to the pitch at Inver Park as the Premiership’s top scorers so far as they come against the second-best league defence in the form of Tiernan Lynch’s side.

The Inver Reds

Larne have enjoyed a fine start to the season themselves, with last Friday’s derby victory away to Carrick Rangers maintaining an unbeaten start. It’s a record of four wins and two draws in their six top flight outings so far for the Invermen.

Shea Gordon bagged his first goal for the club at Taylor’s Avenue last week, taking Larne’s tally to eight goals in the league so far. While that’s the lowest tally in the top six, Larne have excelled at the other end, conceding only two goals in 540 minutes of Premiership football this season.

Larne are on the road again on Friday evening, with an East Antrim derby against Carrick Rangers at Taylor’s Avenue. The game kicks off at 7.45pm and below you’ll find all you need to know ahead of the encounter.

Tickets and Travel

Tickets for the game can be purchased HERE. They are priced at £12 for adults and £8 for concessions. You can also pay at the turnstiles, but purchasing online in advance will save time once you arrive at the stadium.

The Inver Red & Whites, Larne FC Reds and Larne Northern Ireland Supporters Clubs are all running buses to this game. Places are limited and you can find out the latest availability via their Facebook pages.

Carrick Rangers

Stuart King’s Carrick have started the season well, with three wins from their six outings so far leaving them in sixth place. As well as defeating Newry City, they have also enjoyed impressive wins over Linfield and Ballymena United. They claimed a point away to Glenavon with their only defeats coming against Cliftonville and Coleraine.

On loan Andy Mitchell will not be eligible to face his parent club.

The Inver Reds

Larne are one place and one point ahead of Rangers, after five games played. Last Saturday’s victory over Portadown made it three victories and two draws for Tiernan Lynch’s men so far.

Paul O’Neill bagged the only goal of the game at Shamrock Park to put himself back out in front of the club’s goalscoring charts. He has found the net four times in his five Premiership outings, since the summer move from Cliftonville.

A fortnight on from drawing 1-1 away to Crusaders, Larne return to league action with a trip to Shamrock Park to take on Paul Doolin’s Portadown. Saturday’s game kicks off at 3pm and below you’ll find all you need to know ahead of the match.

Portadown

It has been a difficult start to their Premiership campaign for Portadown. Paul Doolin’s side have yet to pick up a point in their first five outings. The Shamrock Park side have, however, enjoyed two wins in a row with back-to-back Mid Ulster Cup and League Cup victories. The latest of which was a 5-0 win at home to neighbours Armagh City on Tuesday evening. Among the players in the Ports ranks is former Larne defender Paddy McNally.

Last season Larne picked up a win and a draw from their two visits to Shamrock Park.

The Inver Reds

Like Portadown, Larne have two cup victories under their belts after wins against Knockbreda and Lisburn Distillery in the County Antrim Shield respectively. Last weekend’s round of Premiership fixtures was called off after the death of Her Majesty II, meaning Larne’s last league outing was the 1-1 draw away to Crusaders.

It has been an encouraging start to the season for Tiernan Lynch’s men, with four victories and two draws in the six outings so far.

 

Following the postponement of football at the weekend, in mark of respect for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the season resumes tonight as we welcome Lisburn Distillery for the start of our Bet McLean League Cup campaign.

Kick-off in Tuesday’s game is at 7.45pm, and you can find out all you need to know in our Landmark Match Guide below.

Our visitors

Lisburn Distillery, currently playing in the Premier Intermediate League, are now managed by former Cliftonville midfielder Barry Johnston, who took over the reins at Ballyskeagh this summer. The Whites are in 10th place in the third tier, after three games played. Like Larne, their last outing was a County Antrim Shield tie a week ago, losing 1-0 against Glentoran at the Oval.

Academy prospect Odhran McCart joined Distillery on loan, ahead of the summer window closing, but due to loan regulations he will not be able to face his parent club this evening.

The Inver Reds

With last Friday’s league encounter at home to Dungannon Swifts postponed, Larne resume action one week on from a 2-0 win at home to Knockbreda. Tiernan Lynch made 10 changes to his line-up for that one and a number of players will have a strong case for retaining their place in Tuesday’s starting XI. Academy prospects Dylan Sloan, Sean Brown and Caolan Donnelly all tasted first team action.

Last week’s victory also made it three wins and two draws in Larne’s five outings this season, with the Invermen keen to build further momentum ahead of Saturday’s trip to take on Portadown at Shamrock Park.

The Invermen kick off their defence of the ToalsBet.Com County Antrim Shield on Tuesday evening, welcoming Knockbreda in a first round tie.. Kick-off is at 7.45pm, and you can find out all you need to know in our Landmark Match Guide below.

Our visitors

The Breda Park side are currently sixth in the Bluefin Sports Championship, having clocked up two victories from their five outings this season. Former Inver Red Cillin Gilmour is a mainstay of the team, who also added Max Greer for a second loan stint ahead of last week’s transfer deadline. Colin McIlwrath’s side were also in East Antrim on Saturday, going narrowly 3-2 to Ballyclare Comrades at Dixon Park.

The Inver Reds

Larne come into this clash with fond memories of the last two County Antrim Shield campaigns, having defeated Glentoran on penalties in 2020, before retaining the Shield against Linfield in January this year. Tiernan Lynch is likely to utilise his squad in this one ahead of a busy period of five games in the space of the next 15 days. The Invermen have yet to taste defeat this season with two wins and two draws in the four Premiership fixtures to date.

Crusaders

Crusaders have enjoyed three wins out of their opening four Danske Bank Premiership encounters to date. The Shore Road side came from behind in each of the last two of those games, defeating Portadown and Newry City 2-1 respectively. Stephen Baxter added full-back Rory McKeown and striker Dean Ebbe to their squad over the summer, while former Larne defender Josh Robinson is expected to return from suspension for this game.

The Inver Reds

It was two wins apiece in the four meetings between the sides last season. Larne come into this game unbeaten in their last nine Premiership outings on the road, a run stretching back to the Spring. It has also been an encouraging start to the league campaign for Tiernan Lynch’s men, taking seven points out of a possible nine so far.

Lynch is hoping to have a full panel to choose from for this game, with Shaun Want’s International Clearance having been received by the club, after his move from Hamilton Accies earlier in the week.

Our visitors

David Jeffrey’s side come to Inver Park with one win, a draw and a defeat from their three league outings to date. That reversal came at home to Cliftonville on Tuesday evening, meaning a quick turn around for the Sky Blues. Having recovered from an injury picked up in pre-season, Davy McDaid is likely to be in line for a quick return to Inver Park, after his summer move over Shanes Hill.

The Inver Reds

With Tuesday’s encounter at Windsor Park having been postponed due to Linfield’s ongoing participation in the UEFA Conference League, Larne have only played two games in this season’s Premiership, taking four points out of a possible six. Like Davy McDaid, this will most likely be Leroy Millar’s first opportunity to face his former club. With Cian Bolger’s return from injury in last week’s late win at Glenavon, Tiernan Lynch will hope to have a full squad to choose from.

Larne’s first away trip of the new Danske Bank Premiership campaign awaits as Larne travel to take on Glenavon on Saturday. The game at Mourneview Park kicks off at 3pm, with all you need to know ahead off the encounter, in our Landmark Match Guide below.

Fans can also pay at the turnstiles, but are encouraged to buy their tickets online to avoid queues at the stadium.

The Inver Red & Whites and Larne Northern Ireland Supporters Club are both running buses to this game, and a place can be booked via their facebook pages.

Glenavon

Glenavon kicked off their new season with a point in their eventful 2-2 draw away to Ballymena United last Saturday. Despite going 2-o down and eventually being reduced to nine men they were rewarded for their perseverance with a stoppage time equaliser from Aaron Prendergast to claim a point against the odds.

Glenavon boss Gary Hamilton has made a number of pre-season additions to his squad, including former Glentoran goalkeeper Rory Brown and midfielder Jack Malone from Derry City.

The Inver Reds

Larne also have one point from their first game coming into this clash, after last Friday’s 0-0 draw with Glentoran. The Invermen looked solid throughout against a dangerous Glentoran forward line, while Tiernan Lynch will keen to create more opportunities going forward.

A number of new recruits made their league debut for the club against the Glens, including Aaron Donnelly, Leroy Millar and Paul O’Neill, while Daniel Kearns and Shea Gordon came off the bench.

Danske Bank Premiership football returns to Inver Park under the lights on Friday, as we take on Glentoran in the opening game of the 2022/23 campaign. Kick-off at Inver Park is at 7.45pm, and you an find out all you need to know in our Landmark Match Guide below.

There will be a full range of adults and children’s sizes on offer, making a visit to the shop a must ahead of the big kick-off.

Our visitors

Glentoran provide the opposition for the first game of the campaign, just as they did for the closing game of the 2021/22 season, when Larne ran out 4-2 winners in a dramatic European play-off final at the Oval. Mick McDermott has made a number of signings during the season including goalkeeper Olly Webber, defender Aiden Wilson and forwards Ally Roy and Danny Purkis. Former Larne first team coach Tim McCann is also now at the Oval.

The Inver Reds

Larne come into the game on the back of four friendly victories in a row, with Paul O’Neill and Max Hutchison pushing for competitive debuts for the club having arrived after our European campaign. Tiernan Lynch has made significant changes to his squad since that victory over Glentoran in May and will no doubt face a number of selection headaches before confirming his starting XI. Larne enjoyed a strong record against Glentoran with four victories and two draws in their six encounters, a record the Invermen will be keen to continue on Friday.

Pre-season preparations continue tonight, as Larne travel to face Warrenpoint Town at Milltown, with kick-off at 7.45pm. Take a look below at our Landmark Match Guide to find out what you need to know ahead of the game.

Tickets and Travel

Supporters can pay at the turnstiles for this game and again, with the fixture being arranged at relatively short notice, none of the three Supporters Clubs will be running transport to this game.

Warrenpoint Town

Warrenpoint Town will compete in the Lough 41 Championship in the forthcoming campaign, with Barry Gray’s men no doubt keen to bounce back to the Premiership at the first time of asking.

With Gray having retained a substantial number of his top flight squad this will surely be a distinct possibility. Town enjoyed a victory against Premiership neighbours Newry City in their last pre-season outing and will no doubt prove to be stiff opposition for the Invermen.

The Inver Reds

Larne’s last outing was a 4-0 friendly victory away to Annagh United last Thursday, with goals coming from Ben Doherty, Shea Gordon, Fuad Sule and Matty Lusty.

Since then Tiernan Lynch has bolstered his attacking options with the arrival of Paul O’Neill from Cliftonville. Tonight could be O’Neill’s first outing in Larne shirt as the side prepare for the Premiership kick-off in just over two weeks, when Glentoran come to Inver Park on Friday 12th August.

European football returns to Inver Park for the second time as Larne take on St Joseph’s in our Europa Conference League First Qualifying Round on Thursday –  kick-off is at 7.45pm.

The Opposition  

St Joseph’s arrive for their first competitive match in Northern Ireland, following last week’s 0-0 draw at the Victoria Stadium. Having been taken over by former Burnley Chairman Mike Garlick in the summer, the Blues added players with experience in the English game to the spine of their team. Goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons was particularly impressive in goal as he helped his new side, managed by Abraham Paz, keep a clean sheet on the night.

The Inver Reds 

Tiernan Lynch declared himself pleased with Larne’s resolute performance in energy-sapping conditions, in last week’s first leg. With away goals no longer counting in European competitions, a winner must be found on the night, whether that be in 90 minutes, or the use of extra-time or penalties. The Invermen expect to have a full panel of players to choose from after the squad came through the first leg unscathed.

Another chapter in our history will be written on Tuesday evening as Larne take on St Joseph’s in the Europa Conference League First Qualifying Round tie at the Victoria Stadium. Whether you’re in Gibraltar or at home, take a look below for all you need to know ahead of the big clash.

The Opposition  

St Joseph’s are no strangers to European football in recent years, including a memorable Europa League qualfying tie with Rangers in 2019. The club were in the seeded pot for this draw, having qualified for European football in each of the last six consecutive seasons.

Gibraltar’s oldest existing football club reached this summer’s competition having finished third in the National League and, this summer, appointed a new manager, in the form of former player Abraham Paz.

The Inver Reds 

There have been a few changes in the Invermen’s personnel this summer, particularly in the middle of the park meaning that it will be something of a new look Larne team who take to the park at the Victoria Stadium. Tiernan Lynch’s side go into the game off the back of a solid friendly performance against The New Saints last week.

While the tie represents a step into the unknown, the club will no doubt be keen to build on last season’s impressive European debut, which saw a memorable run to the Third Qualifying Round of the same competition. Following tomorrow’s first leg, the two sides will meet again at Inver Park on Thursday 14th July (7.45pm).

You can secure your place for the second leg at Inver, by buying a ticket for the game HERE.

Coleraine arrive at Inver having finished 6th in the final Danske Bank Premiership standings, one place behind the Invermen.  Like Larne, Oran Kearney’s side qualified for European football last season, however they have endured difficult post-split form this year, winning one and losing four against fellow top six sides. In the meetings between the sides in the regular season, Coleraine won one, drew one and lost the remaining two games against Larne.

The Inver Reds 

After a break of 10 days, the Invermen come into tonight’s semi-final clash in good form with two wins and three draws in their own post-split games. Tiernan Lynch’s side will be hoping to draw on the experience of last year’s play-off success as they qualified for European football for the first time in the club’s history. A place in Friday’s final is up for grabs, where the winner of the Glentoran v Glenavon will lie in wait.

The Inver Reds

Regardless of the outcome of today’s game Larne know they will finish the season in fifth place.
