Rohan Ferguson pens contract extension

Goalkeeper Rohan Ferguson has signed a new two contract at the club to extend his stay at Inver Park.

The 24-year-old began his professional career at Motherwell in 2017, where he was given his debut by former Northern Ireland international Stephen Robinson.

During his three year stint at Fir Park, Ferguson enjoyed a season-long loan spell at Linfield in the 2019/20 campaign, winning a Danske Bank Premiership winners’ medal in the process.

The former Fir Park stopper then arrived at Larne last June and was part of the club’s maiden European campaign, which kicked off a month later.

In all last season, he made 37 appearances for the club, producing a strong end to the season which saw the club clinch back-to-back summers of European football through the play-offs.

Boss Tiernan Lynch said: “We’re very pleased to extend Rohan’s stay at the club. For a goalkeeper, he’s still very young and we feel he will continue to develop and grow with us.

“Last season he had very strong competition from Conor Devlin, which brought the best out in Rohan and he fought back to make the number 1 slot his own.

“We saw the benefits of that from the split onwards when he was part of a back five who delivered some very strong performances and looked like they had the bit between their teeth.”

The Scotsman is equally pleased to have secured his future at Inver Park, which will take him to the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

He said: “I’m really pleased to extend my stay at the club.

“Last season had its ups and downs, like most seasons do, but thankfully we finished strongly and were able to achieve European qualification, which we set out to.

“Playing in Europe was a great experience last summer and we all can’t wait to do it again.”
