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.

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.

The Inver Reds

Like the home side, Larne also enjoyed a 2-0 victory in their semi-final, at home to Coleraine. An early Rodney Brown OG was followed up by Mark Randall’s late insurance strike. The Invermen booked European football for the first time in their history via the play-offs last season and Tiernan Lynch will be hoping they can do the same again this time out.

The Opposition  

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.

We have reached the final week of the regular Danske Bank Premiership season, with Larne taking on Crusaders at Seaview to wrap up the campaign. The game kicks off at 5.30pm and below is all you need to know about the game.

Crusaders

The home side come into the game one place ahead of the Invermen in fourth. Stephen Baxter’s men also have the Irish Cup final to look forward to in a week’s time. In the three games between the sides so far this season the Seaview outfit have enjoyed the upper hands with two wins to Larne’s one.

The Inver Reds

Regardless of the outcome of today’s game Larne know they will finish the season in fifth place. However, the motivation for Tiernan Lynch’s men will be to continue their solid post split form, which seems them unbeaten in the last four games and not having conceded a goal in the last 318 minutes of football.
