Out on a Limb at Matlock
Young striker Harry Limb has become the latest Burnley player to move out on loan; he’s joined Evo-Stik League club Matlock Town until the end of the season.
Limb first joined Burnley from Wisbech Town towards the end of February last year, where he scored 22 goals last season, and initially joined the youth team for whom he scored four times in wins against Fleetwood, Tranmere and Preston as we finished second in the Youth Alliance League.
This season he’s been with the under-23s where opportunities have been limited and that’s allowed us to send the 18-year-old Northern Ireland Under-19 international out on loan.
Limb is not the first striker to move between the two clubs. Back in 1984, John Bond brought Wayne Biggins to Burnley from Matlock following the injury to Kevin Reeves. Biggins went on to score 37 goals in 94 appearances before moving on to Norwich some 18 months later.
Limb is expected to go straight into their squad for the away game tomorrow against Mickleover Sports.Share this page :
