Glentoran provide the opposition for the first game of the campaign, just as they did for the closing game of the 2021/22 season, when Larne ran out 4-2 winners in a dramatic European play-off final at the Oval. Mick McDermott has made a number of signings during the season including goalkeeper Olly Webber, defender Aiden Wilson and forwards Ally Roy and Danny Purkis. Former Larne first team coach Tim McCann is also now at the Oval.
The Inver Reds
Larne come into the game on the back of four friendly victories in a row, with Paul O’Neill and Max Hutchison pushing for competitive debuts for the club having arrived after our European campaign. Tiernan Lynch has made significant changes to his squad since that victory over Glentoran in May and will no doubt face a number of selection headaches before confirming his starting XI. Larne enjoyed a strong record against Glentoran with four victories and two draws in their six encounters, a record the Invermen will be keen to continue on Friday.
