Action from Knockramer Park (Picture: Larne Football Club)
Saturday, 28 April 2018
Larne rounded the season off in style with a five-goal thumping of relegated Lurgan Celtic at Knockramer Park.
Paul Finnegan opened the scoring for the visitors after just nine minutes with a header before, around the half-hour mark, making it 2-0 with a scrambled finish from a corner.
That was how it stayed until three late goals put the gloss on the scoreline.
Chris Ramsey made it 3-0 on 80 minutes, connecting with a corner to head past Caolan Cush before Thomas Stewart tapped home a Martin Donnelly cross for number four ... with Donnelly getting in on the act himself right at the end with a free-kick from some 20 yards.
