Ro-Shaun Williams amongst five players to depart Inver

May 30, 2024 | First Team, All News, Club News

We can confirm five players have left Inver Park following the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

Daniel Kearns,  Ro-Shaun Williams and Odhran McCart will all move on at the expiry of their contracts, while Scott Allan and Jaziel Orozco return to their parent clubs following the end of their loan deals.

Daniel Kearns is the longest-serving senior player of the quintet, having arrived from Cliftonville in the summer of 2022. The former Peterborough, Glenavon and Linfield player went on to win back-to-back County Antrim Shields with the club, as well as two Premiership titles in his time at Larne.

Odhran moves on having come through the club’s Scholarship programme, making his debut away to Crusaders in 2022 and spending time on loan at Ards during the second half of last season.

Ro-Shaun Williams arrived at the club in January, becoming an ever-present at the heart of the defence as Tiernan Lynch’s side retained their top flight crown.

Scott Allan and Jaziel Orozco, meanwhile, both came to Larne last summer on loan from Arbroath and Real Salt Lake respectively.

Boss Tiernan Lynch was full of praise for all those who are moving on.

“It’s never easy seeing players leave the club, especially when we have enjoyed the success together of the last couple of years,” he said.


“I want to pay tribute to each player moving on and thank for all they gave to the club in their time at Inver Park.


“Daniel Kearns was a fantastic senior professional to have at the club, both on and off the pitch and he goes with our best wishes.


“Ro-Shaun Williams came to the club having not played competitively for half a season and it’s testament to him and his professionalism that he slotted in right away and had a big impact.


“Odhran McCart has developed his game massively in his time with us, including loan spells in the PIL and Championship. I’ve no doubt he can go on to forge a good career for himself.


“Scott Allan was another great professional around the club, having played at the top level of the game. It was great to see him come on and score our final goal of last season.


“Jaziel Orozco left a big imprint on the club and I’d like to think he will look back on his time with us in years to come and see how valuable it was to his career. He adapted to a new country and new league very quickly and was a credit to himself and his family in how he worked every day.


“The remainder of the squad are enjoying their close season break and we are looking forward to having them back in 10 days’ time.”
