Biography:
An FA Youth Cup winner with Liverpool, Davy Larmour played alongside the likes of Michael Owen and Jamie Carragher while at Anfield. With his long-term prospects limited by the presence of Owen, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore, Larmour was released in 1996 to join Doncaster Rovers. He spent a season with the struggling cash-strapped club in which he failed to find the net and he was made available despite having a year left on his contract.

In September 1997 Larmour joined boyhood heroes Linfield where he played in a host of trophy winning sides, scored 149 goals and was called-up to the Northern Ireland squad by Sammy McIlroy in 2000. After several injury ravaged campaigns, and with the emerging Peter Thompson forming an impressive partnership with the seemingly ageless Glenn Ferguson, Larmour was released in the summer of 2006.

Still much sought after, he almost immediately joined Crusaders but he has since struggled with fitness and form latterly with Glenavon and Carrick. In July 2009 he joined Larne and marked his debut with a goal against Banbridge Town on his way to a season's tally of 21. He returned to the top-flight with Distillery in July 2011 but didn't register a goal in a season at New Grosvenor.
