Hastings United manager Chris Agutter has revealed that having Adam Lovatt become a Leeds United player will be no surprise for him as he has done incredibly well.
The 19-year-old Hastings midfielder will be joining the Sky Bet Championship high-flyers for a five-day trial starting on Monday.
“He’s already made a good impression because they’re interested in him and he’s got a lot of clubs in for him,” the Hastings United manager had said via Bexhill Observer.
“He needs to go up there, continue to work hard, enjoy it and be himself – because it’s him that’s got himself in that great position.”
“He’s ice cold, he’s not emotional at all. He won’t be flustered by it, he’ll go about his business and hopefully he’s successful.”
“I always say what’s the worst that can happen? You don’t have to say much to him. Some players you find yourself saying the same thing over and over again, but he’s one of those players you only have to tell once.”
“He doesn’t need any advice. He will go up there and be fine. He’s a great lad and he’s got a very good family around him.?
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he does very well and becomes a Leeds United player. He’s done incredibly well and this is just the start for him to be honest.”
“It’s something that the whole club can be proud of. It’s a win-win for us. If he’s not successful, we will benefit. If he is, great for the lad and that fits the ethos of the club.”
“It’s really positive times. We’re producing young local players playing good football and competing at the top of the league. Everyone’s very happy at the club and everyone’s really positive with where we’re at.”
