Player’s Sponsor: LARNE SOCIAL FOOTBALL CLUB
Ben, an attacking midfielder, arrived at Larne in the summer of 2021 while the club was in the midst of their memorable first foray into European football.
While Ben was cup-tied, having played and scored for Coleraine in the Europa Conference League, he hit the ground running once the domestic season kicked off scoring on his debut against his former side. Having begun his career at his Derry City, Ben spent time on loan with Institute and Glenavon before a permanent move to Coleraine in January 2019.
In those two and a half years Doherty earned a reputation as one of the most prized midfielders in the Danske Bank Premiership, with Larne boss Tiernan Lynch quick to snap him up.
