Coleraine have announced the signing of Lee Lynch from Larne on a three-year deal.

The 30-year-old midfielder makes the switch to The Showgrounds after three-and-a-half seasons at Inver Park during which time he helped the east Antrim side win the NIFL Championship and County Antrim Shield (twice) as well as appearing in the Europa Conference League.

From Limerick, the former Republic of Ireland youth international started his career at West Bromwich Albion and after spending some time at the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Spain thereafter, he returned home in 2011 and helped to keep Drogheda United in the Premier Division.

A move to Sligo Rovers followed as he helped the club secure the League of Ireland title in 2012 and the FAI Cup twelve months later. His career then took him to spells with St. Patrick's Athletic, Limerick and Hamilton Academical in Scotland before a return to his hometown to help them back to the top flight.

After a short time in the United States with FC Arizona Lynch came back to Sligo Rovers in July 2018 ahead of joining Larne six months after that.

Speaking after announcing his second summer arrival at the Ballycastle Road, boss Oran Kearney said:

"Lee is a player I've always admired and someone who I've always been interested in signing.

"He has had a huge amount of success in his career and can play in a number of different positions, which suits us and his quality will add to what we have here. "He's keen to come here, hungry to kick on and we are delighted to have him on board."
