WC-66 winner’s grandson joins Burnley

Harry Flowers Burnley

Burnley have signed the grandson of 1966 World Cup winner Ron Flowers from Brocton, who play in the ninth tier of English football.

Harry Flowers, 20, has been playing in the Premier Division of the Midland League but will now get the chance to make the leap to the Premier League subject to clearance.

Ron Flowers earned 49 caps for England and was a non-playing member of Sir Alf Ramsey’s triumphant squad, eventually being awarded a winners’ medal in 2009 alongside others who had not featured in the starting XI.

The Clarets also announced the signing of 17-year-old striker Harry Limb from Wisbech Town, also in the ninth tier.
