Burnley Sign Harry Flowers From Brocton
Burnley Football Club have this morning confirmed the signings of Harry Flowers from non league Midland League Premier Division side Brocton. Flowers has signed a contract with the Clarets until June 2018, with the option of a further 12 months.
The central defender is the grandson of former England World Cup Winner and Wolves legend Ron Flowers. The 20-year-old has featured in a number of Burnley’s Development Squad games as a trialist and is now a permanent member of Michael Jolley’s squad.
Jolley (Senior Professional Development Phase Coach) said, “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.
