Darrin Crawford has been appointed as the new first-team coach at Amateur League side Larne Tech Old Boys.
He takes up the role after a five-year spell as a coach with Larne Youth. He said he wants to help the newly-promoted outfit get off to a great start in the Premier Division.
“I am looking forward to the challenge, the club is moving very quickly in the right direction,” he told the Times. “From the committee, right through the club, we all want what’s best for Larne Tech.
“The top-flight is going to be tough but there is real desire in the camp and we want to hit the ground running. We have a fantastic squad and are looking forward to the new season.”
