Background: A former trainee at Charlton Athletic who represented England more than 30 times from U16 to U20 level. The left sided defender made his only senior appearance for Charlton when he appeared in their 1-0 victory over Carlisle United on 19th September 2006 in the 2nd Round of the Football League Cup. Joined Millwall on loan during 2006/2007 but injury issues meant he didn't gain more First Team experience. Signed by Lawrie Sanchez at Fulham at the start of the season but made just one appearance (the 3-1 win over Reading on 3rd November 2007) and was eventually loaned out to Crystal Palace during the latter stages of the season where he was restricted to just one First Team appearance - the first 45 minutes of the the 0-0 draw with Blackpool on 29th March 2008.
Became Peter Taylor's seventh close season signing in the summer of 2008, with the Wycombe boss commenting, "We needed to replace Sergio Torres and Nathan fits the bill perfectly. He's an attack-minded left-footed player who has got bags of energy and he can get up and down the pitch very well. He's got a terrific left-foot and he needed to play League football. At the age of 21 he needs to be playing regularly."
Employed by Wycombe mainly as a left-sided midfielder and went on to make 11 Football League appearances during the 2008/9 season (all as substitute). His only start for the First Team in 2008/9 came in the infamous 7-0 home Football League Trophy defeat to Shrewsbury Town in October 2008. Then despite being contracted until June 2010, was released from his contract by mutual consent in May 2009, with Peter Taylor commenting, "Nathan and myself both agreed that he should look elsewhere to get more football, I respect his decision and it's a very professional one."
