Harry Limb says he is excited to be making a return to Wisbech Town.

The teenager is to return to the Elgoods Fenland Stadium next month, but instead of pulling on a red shirt, he will be lining up against his former side as part of a Burnley XI for a pre-season friendly.

The August 1 fixture was arranged as part of the deal that took the youngster to the Premier League side in February, and the striker says he is looking forward to seeing some of the old faces that helped him seal his big transfer.

“I’m looking forward to the game, mainly to see everyone,” he said.

“Hopefully it’s going to be a good game and will help both sides go on to have a great season.

“The last few months at Burnley have been good – we ended the season with a good win but unfortunately missed out on winning the league.

“I’m now focusing on being as fit as I can and doing my best to improve.”
