DEFENDER Harry Flowers is set to leave the club, following the expiry of his loan deal at Inver Park.

The former Burnley man has been on loan at Inver Park since August 2019, from parent club Solihull Moors.

He initially joined  until January, however his deal was extended until Saturday 2nd May, a week after the Danske Bank Premiership season was due to come to an end.

With all football having been suspended due to the spread of Covid-19, Harry’s final appearance came in the televised Irish Cup quarter-final defeat against Coleraine.

First team boss Tiernan Lynch paid tribute to the the player who made 28 appearances and scored three goals during his time at the club.

“Harry conducted himself very professionally throughout his time at the club and we enjoyed working with him,” Lynch said.

“Harry goes with our very best well wishes and we thank him for the role he has played on our journey.

“For a young defender himself we also hope his stint with us has been beneficial in his own development.

“He was a popular figure in the dressing room and with the fans, he did very well for us and we really do wish him well.”

Harry himself took time to thank all those he worked with on and off the pitch for their support during his time in the town.

“It is obviously disappointing that my time at the club has finished with football being suspended, but on the whole I think I can be happy with how things went,” he said.

“We got ourselves into a strong position coming into the split, which was always our aim and there was a progression throughout the season.

“The additions we made in January obviously helped and made us stronger, and that helped us with the run we went on.”

As Harry reflects on the highlights of his time at Inver, he points to the club’s first double over the ‘Big Two’ in 34 years, in the space of three days at the end of January.

“I think that week we beat Glentoran and Linfield was very significant,” he said.

“It was important for ourselves on the playing side of things and you could see that it was for the club and the fans too.

“I’ll always remember my time at Larne and have really enjoyed living in the town with the people having made me so welcome.

“It was a big move for myself, moving across and playing in a different country with all that it entails.

“I really enjoyed it though. Larne have a great manager and very good players – the club is really moving forward with a growing fanbase.

“You also have Kenny Bruce leading things and he knows what he wants to do as well.

“I want to stay in the game, wherever that takes me but I’ll have some very fond memories of my time at Larne.”
