Nurse, who was supported by a King Sporting Scholarship as he combined hockey and studying Sports Performance, came off the bench for his first cap in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat and also got game-time in the following day’s 3-1 reverse.
Team-mate Jack Turner said after Saturday’s match: “It’s great to get some new boys in and Tim played really well in his first game.”
