Following the circulation of an image online yesterday evening (Sunday), Larne Football Club can confirm John Herron has been suspended with immediate effect.
For the period of his suspension, John will not represent the club in fixtures at any level. An investigation into this incident is now underway.
We have shown that we are an inclusive football club for all, demonstrated not only in words but also by our extensive work in the local community. There is no room for behaviour which falls outside of this ethos and we fully expect members, players and anyone associated with the club to reflect these standards at all times.
We will be making no further comment until the investigation has been completed.
