King’s Lynn Town have completed the signing of teenage striker Harry Limb on a two-year contract.
The 18-year-old arrives at The Walks from Premier League Burnley where he has spent the last 18 months.
Linnets boss Simon Clark said: “Harry is somebody I’ve known about for some time and he’s enjoyed a meteoric rise in the game.
“He loves to score goals and is committed to being at the football club. I can’t wait to start working closely with him and help maximise the potential that he’s already got.”
Limb’s career began at Boston United, where he was a product of the club’s Centre of Excellence programme, before he moved to Wisbech Town in the United Counties League.
Limb, who also had trials with both Swansea City and Peterborough United before his move to Turf Moor, bagged 22 goals for the Fenmen in his first season of senior football before penning an 18-month deal with the Clarets.
Limb is due to meet some of his new team-mates at training this week with the likes of Ryan Jarvis, Craig Parker and Ryan Hawkins, among others, doing some extra work ahead of Lynn’s pre-season fixtures.
