Young striker Lewis Richardson has today signed for Grimsby Town on a season long loan.

The 19-year-old has been playing regularly in the under-21s this season and has scored twice. He’s been at Burnley for a decade and has made two first team appearances in the Premier League as a substitute.

Now, he’s going to get the opportunity to play regular first team football in League Two with Grimsby alongside former young Burnley player Jordan Cropper and Anthony Glennon.

Mariners boss Paul Hurst said having made the signing: “Lewis is someone that I have been aware of for quite some time from Burnley. He is a young striker who is very well thought of, very highly thought of and has been involved with the England setups.

“He has lots of ability, I can remember watching him at Elland Road, coming on as a 16-year-old coming on for the Under 23s and there was a real buzz about him when he came on and when I was watching him.

“I think he is someone who can bring us something different in our attacking parts of the pitch and hopefully, he can create and create some goals for us in his time with us”.
