Everyone at Larne Football Club was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Lee Barry earlier this week.
Lee was a popular and well known man in the town and had represented Larne Football Club playing for our Olympic team having worked his way through the ranks at Larne Youth. He also coached with Larne Youth for a short spell. Lee had many friends at the club, particularly in Larne Youth and Larne Ladies, and he will be sorely missed by those who knew him.
Larne Football Club offers its sincere condolences to Lee’s family and friends at this difficult time.
We appreciate the impact tragic news can have on our players and staff and would also like to take this opportunity remind everyone of the support the club offers. Club Captain, Jeff Hughes and Larne Ladies Captain, Katherine Haveron are our designated Mental Health Champions and will be happy to assist if you require someone to talk to.

We also extend our sincere sympathies to the family of IFA Assistant Referee Richard Scott, after a tragic workplace accident.
Richard was a popular official in local football circles, officiating at a number of Larne games throughout recent seasons, and will be missed at grounds around the country.
