“It’s going to help me massively because I’ve had a taste of how the gaffer wants to play,” he said.
“If I manage to earn a professional deal in the coming months, which is my aim, then I feel I’ll bed in a lot easier because I’ve got more understanding of his expectations.
“Even though I only trained with the first team for a couple of days, I think it’s helped to improve my footballing knowledge and will benefit me massively as I try to build a career.
“I was only told I was playing a couple of days beforehand when the gaffer came and said I’d be doing a job at right-back.
“I’ve never played there before so it was all a bit of a whirlwind and a lot to get my head around.
“I really enjoyed training with the lads and it was a great experience to play at Meadow Lane.”
