Larne boss Davy McAlinden has swooped to sign a player he describes as one of the most exciting prospects in the country.

Centre-forward Johnny McMurray, aged 19, has signed for the Inver Park club on loan from Cliftonville until the end of the season.

“He is a terrific player and I’m delighted to get him to come to Larne. He can score goals and I’m excited about what a difference he can make to the squad,” said the manager.

This afternoon McAlinden tweeted: “Welcome to Inver Park Johnny McMurray @JMcM__x on loan from Cliftonville for remainder of season. #businessdone
