But he was an unused substitute against Huddersfield on Tuesday and has been a standout performer since joining from the Scholars.

Nathan joined Yeovil Town from Parkfield last April on a part-time contract and was looking to start his own IT business for his career.

However, when offered a two-year deal by Yeovil, Smith jumped at the opportunity.

And Bar manager Steve Browne, who seems to specialise in developing young talent, will be delighted to see the progression of Smith.

Now he could be set for a dream move to the Premiership, facing the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Nicolas Anelka and Steven Gerrard on a weekly basis.
