AN eight-year-old goal machine from Ormskirk has been snapped up by Blackpool Football Club.

Harrison Wright (shown, left) who scored an incredible 88 goals in only 15 matches for his local junior team last season, has put pen to paper and signed a youth contract with the Championship club.

The youngster, who attends Cobbs Brow Primary School in Skelmersdale, currently plays for a local Under 9s team – even though he is only eight!

His proud dad, Kevin, said: “He’s absolutely buzzing and can’t wait to get started in July.

“He’s done really well so far and plays in an Under 9s league even though he’s a year younger.

“Last season he scored 88 goals in 15 games.

“He scores goals for fun!”
