The loan is only until January 2020 and he will hopefully get some first-team action. Blyth play in the National League North which is the sixth tier of English football.
Nathan was one of a handful of youngsters who trained with the first-team when the team returned for pre-season earlier this year. He may have been sent out on loan so new signing Jake Turner can see the majority of action for the U23s to start the season.
We wish Nathan the best of luck and we’re sure he will be well looked after by Lee Clark.
