Player's Profile - Nathan Eccleston

Nathan Eccleston is yet another English player to feature in the Liverpool squad sheet. Eccleston was born in Manchester on December 30, 1990 and guess what, he wears the Liverpool red! He is 1.78m and plays as striker. He is fast and has bags of ability. I haven't seen much of him but from what I have heard he has tons of potential.

He scored on his second string debut against Bolton during the 2007/08 season. The same campaign was fruitful for him as he settled down to make a reputation for himself. That said, he found the net against Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Youth Cup and scored against Manchester Utd in the Lancashire FA Cup Final. Along with medals, he got pride and a reputation.

That reputation earned him a full time promotion to Melwood ahead of the 2009/10 campaign. His senior debut came against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on October 28, 2009 when he was deployed as a substitute during the Carling Cup Fourth Round tie. He looked lively on that occasion but time wasn't on his side because he was substituted around 10 minutes away from the final whistle.

His first ever PL appearance arrived 3 days afterwards when he was again sent as a substitute late into the game which saw Liverpool lose the match to Fulham at Craven Cottage. To further blood the youngster, Liverpool sent him on loan as from January 2010 to League One club, Huddersfield Town.
