Planning permission has been granted for a new stand at the stadium, which will hold 1,088 fans over three levels.

It will comprise of a modern new area for supporters, including revamped changing facilities, car parking, additional seats, and a concourse with toilets, a shop, refreshments and food sales area. The stand will also feature a control room, press box and community viewing areas.

This announcement comes after Larne FC completed the purchase of Inver Park from Mid and East Antrim Borough Council last year.

Chair of the Council's Borough Growth committee and keen Larne fan, Gregg McKeen welcomed the progress: "This is great news for the club, the community and Mid and East Antrim.

"What Larne FC have achieved on the pitch is remarkable - a real football fairy tale. This has had a wonderful impact off the pitch too, with local businesses and the community rallying behind the team.

"Credit to Kenny Bruce, his staff and everybody involved at Larne who have invested significant funds and time to create excellent facilities and a team fit to match.

"Larne FC has a vision to become one of the top clubs in local football and they signalled their intent on Saturday with a resounding victory in their first game in the top flight."
