I see Liri....
it isnt a one tier per year tree but, paradoxically, it will be easier to do. It does look a little cluttered but no major thick old wood to remove is there?
I would lower bottom branches towards the bottom wire
remove the next branches to connect another pair of branches to second wire.
Ditto the third tier, viz., nearest to wire.
I imagined a slowly, year on year espalier with some aged wood but this is a typical short cut system......not dismissive of that in any way
those vigorous branches when lowered.....gradually during the summer.....will want to produce fruit
I am sure you will achieve a fruiting tree In a couple of years
hmmmmmm, did I really say £20
