Interview with new striker Harry Limb

June 20, 2018

Harry Limb admits he’s hungry for goals after signing for King's Lynn Town from Premier League Burnley.
Teenage striker Limb was unveiled at The Walks at a press conference on Tuesday after spending 18 months with the Clarets.
Limb, who met his new team-mates for the first time at pre-season training last night, has penned a two-year deal with the Linnets.
The Lincolnshire-based forward said: "I trust in Simon (Clark) and I trust in the club and I believe that if I play every week then I will score goals.
"My job is to score goals and hopefully I can get myself back into the full-time game.
"If I do well it will be good for my career and also good for the club, so I will work my hardest to make it happen.
"I have targets, different targets, not just scoring goals but improving my game as well.
"Knowing that the manager trusts you is a boost for my confidence. It makes me feel comfortable in the enviornment and that's when I play my best football."
Reflecting on a brief spell with Matlock in the Northern Premier League last season, Limb, who scored six times for the Gladiators, added: "It took me a couple of games to get back into it.
"In the 23s, if you got a little kick you are protected but at this level you are expecting to be hit.
"The style of play was also very different. At Burnley we looked to keep the ball for long periods, whereas at this level sometimes it's about getting a result and getting the ball forward as quickly as possible."
The youngster knows that his best chance to shine as a Lynn player is to be a regular fixture in the team.
And although he is still learning - a point recognised by his manager - Limb wants to use his move back into the non-league game as a stepping stone back onto the big stage.
“I am looking forward to getting started,” said Limb, who bagged 22 goals for Wisbech during his first season in senior football before moving to Turf Moor.
“Effectively, it didn’t work out at Burnley. It started off quite well, I lost form and couldn’t get my form back, so without form and scoring goals I am not really successful – so it didn’t work out.
"I have come here to play football and get back on the right path. I have come down, but I want to go back up and I think King’s Lynn is the best place for me to start.
"I had a couple of options open to me but this was the best one."
