Club Shop

The Club Shop has currently been relocated to our pop-up premises at High Street, and the store at Inver Park will therefore not be open for this game.. You’ll find the pop-up shop – open until Christmas Eve –  stocked with our new Nike leisurewear range as well as whole host of other gifts just in time for Christmas.

Match Programme

Our hugely popular Match Programme will be available to purchase within the stadium. In this edition we have interviews with Albert Watson, Shane Taaffe and Mike Argyrides. Fuad Sule features in our poster in this edition, with much more on offer besides for just £3.

The Opposition  

Linfield come into the game four points ahead of the Invermen in the Danske Bank Premiership, having a game less. David Healy’s men have won four and drawn one of their last five league outings, which has taken them to second place in the table.

The Inver Reds 

Larne will be looking to bounce back from last week’s disappointing 2-1 defeat at the Ballymena Showgrounds. Tiernan Lynch’s men do boast a strong record, however, and are unbeaten at Inver Park both domestically and in European action. The Invermen are currently fourth in the standings.
