Priory students are hoping to be the famous five after signing for National League side AFC Fylde.

Left winger Jake F, 15, centre back Cieran D, 15, central midfielder Jack M, 14, centre back  Harrison A-W, 14, and attacking midfielder Byron M, 16, have all put pen to paper on academy deals after impressing on trial.

“We train every Friday night,” said Cieran, who was at Premier League Burnley FC’s Academy in his younger days.  “We all want to be professional footballers so this is a big step for us.”
