Speculation had been building as to where the former York City man would go after his contract with Linfield expired with several Danske Bank Premiership clubs showing a interest in the defender.

The 27-year-old is glad the situation is now resolved and is looking forward to his switch to Inver Park.

“It was a long wait with the pandemic and everything else, so I’m delighted to be here and put pen to paper,” he told the club website.

“I’m close friends with Andrew Mitchell and he told me bits and pieces about what the club were doing, and I didn’t actually believe it.

“I then met with Tiernan and Seamus Lynch and it hit me that what he was saying was true. What the club are doing and what they are trying to do going forward is exciting.

“If the pandemic hadn’t happened I think Larne could and would have finished higher than sixth last season, so there is a good opportunity to try to build on that.

“I’m very excited to get playing again and hopefully the Larne fans take to me and I can play my part in helping move the club forward.”

Larne boss Lynch is pleased to have secured the services of the much sought after defender.

He said: “We’re delighted that Josh chose Larne because there were a lot of clubs interested in him.

“He was delighted to come here after hearing what our plans are and where we want to go.

“I think it speaks volumes now when you talk to players and tell them what our plans are that they want to come here.

“Josh is a lad who seems to be a born winner. He’s won titles at Linfield and Crusaders and he now has decided to come to Larne.”
