Dylan Graham earns his keep at Inver

Jul 3, 2024 | All News, First Team

We are very pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Dylan Graham, subject to International Clearance, following his departure from Everton.

The 19-year-old shot stopper arrives at Inver Park following a stint at Goodison Park where he featured for the Toffees in their underage teams, having arrived at the club in the summer of 2021, as a 16-year-old.

He hit the headlines when he made his debut for Ballymena United against Glentoran aged just 16, before making the move to Merseyside and going on to earn a professional contract.

Dylan has also represented Northern Ireland at both under-17 and under-19 level and returns to the Irish League ready to continue his career.

The Belfast-born stopper joins a goalkeeping department which includes the long-established Rohan Ferguson, as well as up and coming teenager Rian Brown.

Tiernan Lynch has made Dylan his third summer signing and has welcomed him to the club. He said:

“Dylan comes to us as someone who is young for a goalkeeper, but he is coming off the back of a great education at Everton.


“He has been well schooled in the game both and off the pitch, which comes with being at a top English Premier League club and we want him to bring those habits and that mentality to his work with us.


“We are looking forward to working with him on a regular basis and he strengthens the goalkeeping department in the senior squad, alongside Rohan and Rian.”

Dylan has been handed the number 36 shirt for the upcoming season and the former Ballymena United man is eager to officially get started in a Larne shirt, adding:

“It’s been amazing so far.


“The boys have been brilliant since I came in and the standard of the football and the facilities at the club has been class.


“Having been across the water with Everton, staying in full-time football was what I wanted and that’s why I wanted to come here, it’s a very professional environment at the club which is what I am used to now.


“I’m excited to get started and to get another taste of the Sports Direct Premiership and my first taste of Champions League football.”
