The Safety Bay footballer has made up for a lack of height needed to play key-position forward or back by turning himself into a little terrier, impressing coaching staff with his attack on the ball.

Playing as a forward pocket and wingman that can rotate through the middle, the exciting prospect says his game is based around working for the team. ‘I spend a lot of time in the forward line or working up and down one of the wings,’ he said.

‘I really try to work hard for my teammates. I like kicking goals but I would much rather set someone up for a goal.

‘I set up a lot more goals than I actually kick but I like doing it because football is a team game.’

The junior footballer lives and breathes football. Fortunately for Nathan his dad is a qualified sports trainer who works with Peel Thunder. ‘I always have a footy when I go to school and in the house kicking it down the hallways and crumbing it off the walls,’ he said.

‘I do get in trouble a bit if I leave a mark on the wall or something but it’s hard to stop playing.’
