King's Lynn Town send Northern Ireland youth international out on loan to Boston Town

King's Lynn Town have sent striker Harry Limb out on loan to United Counties League outfit Boston Town.

Limb, 20, has yet to feature in a Linnets shirt this season after being sidelined for Lynn's return to the National League North through a mystery virus.

The Northern Ireland youth international, who was also on the books of Premier League Burnley, scored two goals in 21 appearances (12 as substitute) at The Walks.

The youngster spent some of last season out on loan to Pinchbeck, scoring four goals from 10 starts.

Poachers boss Gary Edgley told the Boston Standard: "I would just like to thank Kings Lynn Town and Stephen Cleeve for making this happen and wish them all the best in their bid for promotion this season.

"I'm really pleased to be able to bring in a player of Harry’s calibre to the club.

"It’s definitely a boost for my players and the club in our tough run over the Christmas period.

"This is the first time I will have worked with Limbo but he was at training this week and he has a real hunger to do well for us and to get back to the level he needs to be at.

"He will come straight into the squad for Tuesday's game against Oadby."

Limb came through the Boston United academy before joining Wisbech at the start of the 2016-17 season.

He scored 22 goals in 40 games for the club and caught the eye of Burnley's youth set-up.

Limb made his debut for Northern Ireland under 19s in a 2-1 European Championship qualifer defeat against Poland in 2017.
