Manager of the month accolade for Tiernan Lynch

Larne Football Club’s manager Tiernan Lynch has been named Manager of the Month by the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association.

The Inver Park outfit finished September unbeaten, with wins over Carrick Rangers, Portadown, Knockbreda and Lisburn Distillery, as well as a keenly contested draw with Crusaders.

Commenting on the success, Lynch said: “It’s an honour to collect this award. I’d like to thank the Football Writers’ for selecting me.

“However, the award isn’t just about me. It’s an award won by all the staff and the players.

Tiernan Lynch.

“September was tough, so I was pleased we came through it unbeaten, but we have some even tougher games on the horizon. We will do our best to maintain this momentum.”
