Larne have signed Northern Ireland under-19 international Sean Graham on loan from Blackpool.

The former Crusaders youth star will spend the first half of the season at Inver Park, where he featured in Larne's 5-0 win over Crumlin United on Saturday.

"We're very pleased to bring him in on loan until January," said manager Tiernan Lynch.

"He is at the stage where he wants to be playing men's football, so that he can develop and we have it will be mutually beneficial for him to be here.

"Ben Tilney had to play a lot of football last season and we were maybe guilty of flogging him at times because we didn't have another player to slot into that position.

"Sean comes in to give us that, and hopefully he can push Ben in the first half of the season."
