A very strong Larne Tech OB team travelled to the Glen Road trying to overturn the 2-1 defeat they suffered in the Irish Cup before Christmas. Unfortunately for them, they faced a Belfast Celtic team determined to keep up our unbelievable record in our maiden season. This fixture chosen as IFA tie of the round lived up to expectations. We went on the attack from the 1st whistle & had chances through Kevin Lynch, Jay Donnelly & Darren Stuart. With half time approaching Darren Stuart finally broke the deadlock to give us a deserved lead. Our 2nd came just after the break when a long clearance from Padraig Nugent was expertly controlled & finished by Jay Donnelly. We continued with our free flowing style of football & carved out numerous chances. All credit to Larne as a lesser team would have folded with the pressure they were under, but they stuck at it and scored a consolation goal with virtually the last kick of the game. But a very impressive performance by the entire squad, capped by Man Of The Match Darren Stuart.
The reserve squad maintain their unbeaten run in the league with a 3-0 win against Cookstown RBL Reserves. Goalscorers were James Larkin, Ciaran Carson & Ciaran Smyth
