Paul O'Neill makes switch to Larne

Larne have completed the signing of striker Paul O’Neill from Cliftonville.

The former Northern Ireland under-21 international will help bolster the Invermen’s attacking options following the departure of David McDaid, Ronan Hale and Lee Lynch.

O’Neill made his name with Glentoran before moving to Solitude as part of the deal which took Conor McMenamin to The Oval.

He came off the bench to score a brace in the League Cup final win for the Reds last season.

“It’s no secret that we keen to add quality in the final third and we have done just that with Paul’s signature,” Tiernan Lynch told the club website.

“Paul already has a lot of senior football under his belt for two top clubs for someone so young and we can’t wait to get working with him.”

“We said we would only add players if they were the right fit on the pitch and off it and Paul falls into both categories. He feels he can progress his career with us and we are confident we can help him push on as well.”
