Flowers and Limb signings confirmed
Burnley have today confirmed the signings of central defender Harry Flowers and Harry Limb.
Flowers has been combining playing his football for Brocton FC in the Midland Football League with studies at Sheffield Hallam University while Limb has been playing for Wisbech Towb.
The 20-year-old Flowers certainly has a rich pedigree. He’s the grandson of former Wolves and England star Ron Flowers. The pair were among a number of trialists brought in recently and impressed enough to be offered contracts until the end of the 2017/18 season with a further year in the club’s favour.
Both have already made competitive debuts for us; Flowers was in the side that lost at Cardiff in the Premier League Cup and then beat Sunderland this week while Limb came on as a substitute in the Sunderland game.
Development squad coach Michael Jolley said: “Harry Flowers is an old school defender, he’s really keen to do the basics very well, make blocks, make tackles, make headers and keep the ball out of our net. Those are qualities we really like and we see some growth and potential in him. I think training full time and working with the coaches he will improve.
“Harry Limb is someone who has come on our radar as a natural goalscorer. He’s been playing men’s football and scoring goals. We have had a look at him on trial and he impressed us with the way he went about it, so we’ve given him an opportunity as well.
“Like all the players, they will have to work hard to make a success of their careers at Burnley, but they’ve started in the right way.”
Both players have been introduced to the club since the appointment of Nicky Law as Head of Academy Recruitment for ages 17-23.
Up the Clarets would like to wish them both the very best at Turf Moor.Follow UpTheClarets:
