Ex-Bury prospect Rob Harker delighted with Burnley deal

Rob Harker is delighted with his deal at Burnley.

Harker came through the youth ranks at Bury before getting a taste of first-team action in the Football League Trophy last season.

But Burnley swooped to snap up the promising target-man at the end of his scholarship with the Shakers and after a handful of appearances in the Clarets' strong finish to the U23 Development League last season, Harker is delighted to be here on a permanent basis.

“I really enjoyed it here and played a few games and it went well," he told Clarets Player HD.

“I love the training ground and love the players, so it was a no-brainer."

Harker scored in the friendly win at Stalybridge Celtic yesterday.
