Non-league duo Harry Flowers – grandson of former Wolves and England World Cup winner Ron – and Harry Limb has been signed on contract until June 2018.

They’ll initially link up with the Development Squad – Flowers has already represented Burnley at that level as a trialist – with these contracts coming with the option of a further 12 months.

20 year old former Sheffield FC defender Flowers has signed from Midland League Premier Division side Brocton.

He’ll be joined in Michael Jolley’s squad by Limb who had attracted interest from Premier League rivals Swansea and clubs in the Football League after scoring 22 goals for Wisbech Town.

Limb had also featured as a trialist with the 17 year old initially joining the Development Squad part time to complete his A level studies in economics, business studies and PE at Boston Grammar. Once that’s completed the striker will go full time.

Senior Professional Development Phase Coach Jolley told the Official Website.

‘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.’
