Darlington: Six hit Nathan Celebrates (Ray Simpson)

Darlington hot shot Nathan Cartman topped a season to remember when he won the Evo-Stik League’s Golden Boot award at the league’s presentation night last weekend.

The Golden Boot is the SIXTH trophy that Nathan has picked up this season. The others are:

  • Member of the Evo-Stik Division One North team of the year
  • Third in League supporters team of the year
  • Play off winner
  • Evo-Stik First Division North player of the year
  • Harrogate Advertiser player of the year

“I’ve never won this many in a season before,” said Nathan, who gets married on July 4th.

“The top one is my play off winner’s medal, because next season I‘m going to be playing at a higher level with Darlington.”

Nathan scored 43 goals in total for Harrogate RA and Darlington last season, and said; “I always set myself a target every season. I start by setting myself a target of 10, then 15, then 20. It would be fantastic to get close to 43 again.”

Meanwhile, he’s looking forward to pre-season training and the league to commence on August 15th.

“I really can’t wait. I’ve been working on my personal fitness during the summer, but that’s completely different to match fitness. The sooner we play games, then the better.”
