  1. Final whistle

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran (Larne win on penalties)

    After a 33-year wait Larne can celebrate a trophy triumph after beating the Glens in a shootout.

    Conor Devlin saved spot-kicks from Glens pair Jay Donnelly and Joe Crowe while Larne striker David McDaid saw his penalty kept out by Rory Brown.

    Jeff Hughes won it for his hometown team with the final penalty to spark celebrations for the Inver Park men.

    Thanks for joining us. Bye for now.

    We're going to a shootout folks - after a disappointing 90 minutes the destiny of the Co Antrim Shield will be decided by penalties.

  7. Glens miss out

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    Gael Bigirimana is an inch away from Glentoran a late lead - Markus Kane sends in a cross and an unmarked Bigirimana fails to connect from four yards out.


    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    So close for the Glens - a corner is swung is and the ball hits Larne's Jeff Hughes before clipping the crossbar.

    Glentoran claim it came off his hand but their penalty appeals are turned down.

    Speaking of penalties - we go straight to a shoot if we don't have a winner in the 90 minutes.

  9. Donnelly goes close for Glens

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    Not much improvement until the hour mark then both teams go close.

    David McDaid's deflected shot looped into the path of Martin Donnelly but from a tight angle he could not force his head past Rory Brown.

    A minute late substitute Jay Donnelly almost made an immediate impact at the other end but his arrowed his fizzing driving straight at Conor Devlin.

  10. Here we go again

    Glentoran 0-0 Larne

    We've kicked off again at Seaview.

    Fingers crossed for a bit more excitement.

    There were few efforts on goal in the first half - this one from Martin Donnelly was easily saved by Rory Brown.

    Glentoran 0-0 Larne

    Very little to get us off our sofas in what was a very drab first 45 minutes.

    A couple of half chances but it's fair to say this cup final is yet to catch fire.

    Here's hoping for much better in the second half.

    Scoreless at the break.

  13. Defences on top

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    Glens keeper Rory Brown makes a routine save from a weakly struck Martin Donnelly - it's poor fare so far at Seaview as defences remain firmly on top.

  14. CLOSE!

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    The Glens threaten for the first time with Andrew Mitchell connecting with a Gael Bigirimana free-kick and his powerful header is well saved by Conor Devlin.

  15. Quiet start at Seaview

    Larne 0-0 Glentoran

    Just one chance to report in a low-key opening in north Belfast with Larne midfielder Mark Randall firing well over from a Martin Donnelly cross.

  16. Team news

    Glentoran v Larne

  17. Let's get the cup final ball out

    Glentoran v Larne

    We’re here, finally.

    After suggestions from Glentoran that they could pull out because they weren't happy with the venue and the date, the Co Antrim Shield decider goes ahead at Seaview tonight.

    It's fair to say Larne's build-up has been a lot more positive than their opponent's, with the Inver Park club having a number of celebrities sending them well wishes on social media.

    But it's time to get the ball out and look forward to the first final of the 2020-21 season - and it's an intriguing one.

    Larne come into the match sitting top of the Irish Premiership while the Glens look to have finally got their faltering season on track with a draw against Linfield last week and their first league win of the campaign on Saturday.
