Ballyclare midfielder Samuel McIlveen has agreed to sign for Championship rivals Larne.
The 21-year-old put pen to paper with the Inver Park club on Thursday evening (December 10) and is expected to be eligible to play from New Year’s Day.
That means the fomer Glenavon man could make his debut in the home league match against Donegal Celtic on January 2.
“I didn’t sign for Larne for the club to remain a Championship team. They are striving for promotion and hopefully I can add something to the team and be part of something successful,” McIlveen said.
Larne boss Davy McAlinden told the club’s website: “Sammy is someone we have been tracking since we came to the club. He’s a tenacious midfielder with a great range of passing.
“We’re delighted to finally land him and bring him to the club.”
