Larne will kick off their Championship 1 campaign with the long trip to Dergview on August 8.

Seven days later Davy McAlinden’s men welcome Knockbreda to Inver Park before setting off on their travels again on August 22 away to Lisburn Distillery.

The Reds meet rivals Ballyclare Comrades at Dixon Park on December 19.

The top-flight fixtures were released by the Northern Ireland Football League on Friday morning.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper John Connolly has been released by the club. The ex-Cliftonville stopper made 32 appearances for Larne

“Disappointingly, John Connolly has been asked to be released for personal reasons,” manager David McAlinden told the club’s website.

“Obviously, under his terms as an amateur we had no choice but to grant this wish. We wish John well and thank him for his services last year.”
