“I am thoroughly excited about being selected for Lancashire. I want to be a professional footballer.”

Defender Jordan Swift, 15, plays for Burnley Belvedere.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to play for Lancashire,” said Jordan, who lives on Lisbon Drive.

Striker Lewis Mansell, 16, Cleveland Road, plays for Blackburn Under 16s, while goalkeeper Kean Craig, 15, of Surrey Avenue is a stopper for Burnley Belvedere.
