Coleraine manager Oran Kearney believes a 38-game Danske Bank Premiership season is possible in the next campaign if fans are allowed back into stadiums.

The 2019-2020 league season was suspended at the 31-game mark following the Covid-19 outbreak, but the picture is looking brighter now, with the NI Executive confirming yesterday that outdoor competitive games and sporting events can start again from tomorrow.

This covers both grassroots and professional competitive games and events and, although no spectators will be allowed, the Irish FA hope some fans will be able to attend the Irish Cup final on July 31.
