Young gun Nathan Waterston hopes new boss Ian Evatt can bring the best out of him at Holker Street.

Waterston was the first player to sign a new deal with Barrow AFC in the close-season – following a successful eight-week spell with the Bluebirds as the end of last term.

The former Workington Reds attacker, who penned a one-year contract in May, has seen much change in his short time at the club.

Waterston was brought in by then-boss Ady Pennock, and has seen him depart – along with many of the playing staff – and former Premier League central defender Evatt come in for his first permanent managerial appointment.

Evatt – who played in the top-flight for Blackpool, and who took charge of Chesterfield on a caretaker basis at the end of last season’s ill-fated League Two campaign – is someone Waterston admits to having researched since his appointment last week.

And the 21-year-old is hopeful he can benefit from working under someone who has played at the top of the game, and who is looking to impress in a new role.

“I’d heard his name from the level he has played at,” said Waterston, who will return for pre-season training with Evatt and the rest of the squad at the start of July. “Having researched him as well, I’m looking forward to working with him.

“He’s someone who has so much experience as a player at the highest level, and he’s someone I can work with, and hopefully he can get the best out of me as well.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and meeting him soon.”
