Burnley are delighted to sign two non-League players and say the grassroots market is where they want to do more business in the future.
Defender Harry Flowers, 20, has signed on at Turf Moor from Midland League side Brocton.
Harry Limb, who is only 17, last week switched from ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League outfit Wisbech Town.
It’s all down to former Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law, who left the Impact Arena to take care of Burnley’s recruitment.
Development squad boss Michael Jolley said: “Everyone is looking at the non-League game as well so it’s a highly competitive market.
“Having Nicky on board is a big help to us because he’s got the experience, he knows the level and knows a lot of players. I think that’s a really strong appointment for us and already some of the players he has brought in have hit the ground running.
“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.”
