The Inver Park outfit line out in their first final for 15 years tonight when they battle Glentoran for the County Antrim Shield at Seaview.

Midfield general Sule feels the success Larne are tasting so far this term is just reward for all their efforts over the last few months.

“We’re obviously looking forward to the final,” Sule told the club website.

“It’s going to be a good occasion and the first opportunity for us to put our stamp on the Irish League.

“With the quality of the team we have, the confidence within the squad and all the hard work we put in before the season we felt we would really give it a go this year.

“We knew it was a good opportunity to put the first trophy in the cabinet, and hopefully we can do that.

“Lockdown was the opportunity for everyone to really find themselves, it’s testament to the boys because they are so professional.

“It would have been easy to sack everything off during lockdown, but we all knew that we’d only be cheating ourselves.

“Everyone knew just how big a season it was going to be for the club and everyone wanted to play the part in it.

“We had a year’s grace last season, but we knew if we prepared right things would fall for us that maybe didn’t fall for us last year.

“We can see that coming to fruition and that is through the hard work the boys have put in.”

Glentoran Head Coach Mick McDermott says he will utilise his squad for the game with such a congested fixture schedule.

“This match with Larne presents us with a great opportunity to show the strength of our squad,” he told the Glentoran website.

“With four games in 11 days that is vitally important and why it’s necessary to have a strong squad with a choice of quality players.

“Our players will represent Glentoran well at Seaview tomorrow night.”
