Wisbech Town boss Dick Creasey says he will not turn to the transfer market to replace teenage striker Harry Limb.
The Fenmen’s top-scorer signed for Premier League outfit Burnley on an 18-month deal earlier today (February 24) after impressing scouts with 22 goals in 40 appearances, but Creasey insists the club’s other striking talents - Alex Beck and Michael Frew - have enough quality to fill the void left by the 17-year-old’s departure.
Frew has scored 17 goals in 39 games while Beck has found the net eight times in his 19 appearances – including a goal in Wisbech’s 3-1 win over Rothwell Corinthians last weekend - since signing from Boston Town in October last year.
Creasey said: “Alex has started to show what he is capable of. Last Saturday I thought he had an excellent game.
“In Alex and Frewy we’ve got two good UCL forwards, so we’re not panicking on that front.”
