Footballer Harry Limb has joined Premier League Burnley.

The 17-year-old striker has signed an 18-month contract with the Clarets after joining from United Counties League Premier Division outfit Wisbech Town - a step up of eight divisions.

“Absolutely delighted to have signed my first pro contract today with 
@BurnleyOfficial” he wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Limb, who comes from Old Leake and attended Boston Grammar School, also had trials with Swansea City earlier this year.

He came through Boston United’s youth academy but left without playing a competitive first-team match for the Pilgrims.

However, he did feature in friendly action for United.
