Larne are back in Championship 1 action this weekend when they travel to Knockbreda - a team just one point ahead of them in the league table.

It’s Larne’s first-ever trip to Breda Park where Graham McConnell will renew acquaintances with opposite number, Hugh Sinclair.

“I signed Hugh as a player when I managed Islandmagee. He’s progressed now and has won trophies as a manager with both Albert Foundry and Knockbreda,” said McConnell.

“He was always a competitive player and he has instilled his own competitive and battling qualities into the players under his charge. And we will have to match those skills on Saturday,” he warned.

“But, we have better players and I am sure that, if we match them for determination and effort – which we owe the fans, we will win because we are a better team than they are.”

Inver Red & Whites transport will leave Inver Park at 1:30 pm. All welcome.
