Glory hunters: Larne players celebrate their County Antrim Shield success

As we aim to banish a turbulent 2020 from our minds and hope for a better 2021, one of the leading questions in Northern Ireland sport is can Larne win their first Irish League title?

Tiernan Lynch's impressive side were top of the tree at Christmas, a point ahead of second placed Linfield, and the Inver Park men have played a game less than the champions.

The title race is normally a marathon rather than a sprint, but this season's fixtures calendar is not certain in the changing Covid-19 landscape.
