Leroy Millar to join the Invermen

Jun 2, 2022 | First Team

We are delighted to announce the signing of Leroy Millar, following the conclusion of his contract at Ballymena United.

The powerful central midfield player arrives at Inver Park following more than 200 appearances for his hometown club.

The 26-year-old’s final appearance in a United shirt came in the Irish Cup final last month, where he was named as the Man of the Match in dramatic late defeat to Crusaders.

After arriving at the Showgrounds as a teenager, Leroy now becomes a Larne player ahead of the 2022/2023 campaign and he is eager to get started.

“I’m delighted to be here and now I just can’t wait to get in and meet the boys,” he said.

“I’m at a wonderful club and I can’t wait to get out and play in front of the fans and hopefully make them happy.

“The professionalism in and around the club is really noticeable and the change from four or five years ago to now is massive.

“It’s not just on the pitch, but off the pitch as well and hopefully I can come and help to push things on even further.

“Larne are the club who is furthest down the line with the professional approach and they are learning all the time and I think that stands them in good stead.

“The chance to play professional football is massive for me and I can’t wait to get started and give everything for the club.”

Larne boss Tiernan Lynch is equally as pleased with his second acquisition of the summer, after the arrival of Aaron Donnelly.

“We are absolutely delighted to bring Leroy to the club,” he said.

“He has been a huge driving force over the last number of years and everyone saw at the Irish Cup final what he is capable of.

“He helps bring another dimension to the team and the squad and we are delighted to know he will be a Larne player next season.”

A full interview with Leroy will be available on the club’s social media platforms shortly.
