Wisbech Town’s brightest young talent could be on his way to the Premier League.

Fenmen boss Dick Creasey revealed that teenage hot-shot Harry Limb has been offered the chance to train with Swansea City.

Limb’s performances at United Counties League Premier Division level have captured the attention of a scout for the Welsh club, who is based in this area.

The 17-year-old has been a revelation in his first season as a Wisbech player, scoring 16 goals so far.

Creasey said: “Swansea’s scout has watched Harry two-or-three times and the club asked our permission to have a look at him for a week.

“That could happen as early as next week and there would be no-one happier than myself if he could earn a move to that level of football.

“We’re delighted with what he has done for us. He has scored a lot of goals in a tough league and that’s no mean feat for a lad who has only just turned 17.

“Spending time at Swansea will be a great experience for him and I’m sure that everyone connected to Wisbech Town hopes it goes well.”

If Limb impresses in South Wales, he could leap a staggering nine levels up the football ladder.

Limb is from the Lincolnshire village of Old Leake and previously played for Boston United.

He was part of the Pilgrims’ youth set-up for several years and made a handful of senior appearances as a substitute in National League North before joining Wisbech in the summer.

Limb is not the only Wisbech man in demand. Winger Billy Smith has turned down a move to higher-level AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
