Larne's first home pre-season friendly of the summer ended in a 1-0 defeat to David Healy's Linfield.
The only goal of the game arrived with 23 minutes gone when new signing Ryan Arthur steered the ball into his own net. Goalkeeper Adam McCormick, who was guesting for the hosts, was helpless to prevent the ball beating him at his near post.
Larne's next match is also against Premiership opposition as David Jeffrey's Ballymena United visit Inver Park on Saturday (3pm).
