Huddersfield Town’s Academy Manager Leigh Bromby says his young side can’t wait for their return to Inver Park, with a friendly between the two sides scheduled for Saturday 20th July.
Town’s young stars made the trip across the Irish Sea for a friendly at the end of March, on a day which saw Dom Tear reunited with his parent club.
They are preparing for a second visit as part of both club’s preparations for the new season and Bromby admits he is relishing the test.
He said: “We’re absolutely delighted to take our young players back to Larne FC for a pre-season friendly on 20 July.
“Our relationship with Larne FC has been so beneficial for many reasons.
“They’re a top class club with great people and the manner in which they looked after Dom Tear and Isaac Marriott last season was a credit to them, and incredibly helpful for their development as players and people.
“Our previous friendly showed what a top side they are and we look forward to giving our talented youngsters another big test when we return to Inver Park.”
Larne manager Tiernan Lynch is also delighted to have the game as part of his own preparations for the Premiership return.
“We have forged a great relationship between the clubs and we’re delighted to welcome them over again,” Tiernan said.
“They conducted themselves fantastically well the last time and it was a great test for us, different to what we had normally faced.
“This will be great for us as we continue to gear for the league starting in August.”
The game at Inver Park, on Saturday 20th July, will kick-off at 3pm.
