Larne Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of midfielder John Herron.

The 25-year-old makes the move from fellow Danske Bank Premiership club Glentoran, having spent the previous 18 months at the Oval.

He began his career at Celtic, before two years with Blackpool in League One. In 2017 John moved to Raith Rovers, before arriving into Irish League football in the summer of 2018 with Glentoran.

John has also been capped at every underage group with Scotland, right up under-21 level.

He arrives at Inver Park to bolster Tiernan Lynch’s options in the middle of the park and his new boss was delighted to finally get his man.

“John is a player we have been tracking for a while now,” he said.

“He is a lad who is going to add real quality and real experience to the team. He trained with us today and he fitted right in.

“We talk a lot about culture and bringing the right person to the club and John fits the bill. He’s a lad who wants to get on the ball and play and he’s been hugely impressed with how we play.”

Look out for a full video interview with Tiernan on our social media platforms later today.

John will wear the number six shirt at Inver Park, and is available for selection for tomorrow’s Sadler’s Peaky Blinder Irish Cup tie away to Ballyclare Comrades.
