Exclusive by Hugh Southon
Nathan Holland’s mentor Terry Westley is delighted the 21 year old winger has at last been included in the Hamers Premier League squad after “doing everything he can do at Under 23 level.”
The former academy chief and ClaretandHugh‘s exclusive blogger speaking after seeing the squad a few minutes ago declared: “I’m so pleased for the boy – really pleased and it would be lovely to see him get on.
For Nathan this could be the night of his life – here he is on the bench of a Premier League match – not the Championship – the Premier League. It’s a serious moment in his career and all eyes will be on him if he gets on.
“I’m so pleased for him. I’ve just spoken to his parents and there is obviously massive excitement.
“This is such a big game against a very good team and there’s always a danger that having beaten Chelsea and having Arsenal at the London Stadium on Monday attention can wander.
“It will be a big night all round and I have everything crossed Nathan gets on and the Irons come away with something.”
