The Irish Premiership champions come off the back of a remarkable season under boss Tiernan Lynch where the were crowned league champions for the first time in their 134-year history as a 2-0 win over Crusaders gave them an unassailable 12-point lead at the top.
Larne will look to go one better this year after coming up short against St Josephs in the Qualifying First Round last season.
