Nathan is a left back who joined Dundalk from local club Saint Dominic’s. He was called into the first-team set-up by Sean Connor during the 2009 season after impressing for the club’s Youths team and made his senior debut, aged just 16, with an injury-time appearance in a 3-0 defeat at Derry City on 4 September 2009. He went on to make another 7 outings between then and the end of the season.

In 2010 Nathan made 8 league appearances for Dundalk, adding 32 league appearances in 2011 as he became a regular in Ian Foster's side. In 2012 he had just 13 league outings in a turbulent season and Nathan left Oriel Park at the end of the season. In January 2013 he played with Roddy Collins' Athlone Town during their pre-season campaign but he did not sign a contract with Midlanders, returning to Dundalk colours in July 2013. He made just 1 league appearance for the Lilywhites that year, as a late substitute in a 1-1 draw with Bohemians on 12 October.

He has also appeared for the FAI Schools U18 side, putting in an eye-catching display in a 3-1 friendly win over Australia.
