Early life and career
As a child, Nattawut had a strong aversion to football until his older brother asked him to play football in order to lose weight. Gradually, he began to enjoy playing football as a sport and soon had the desire to improve. After outclassing his age group, Nattawut joined the JMG Academy and later attended the Bangkok Christian College, where he was called up to the Thailand Under-16's.
After winning the 2011 AFF U-16 Youth Championship with the Thailand Under-16's, he was handed a trial by Buriram United, who scouted him at the tournament. They signed him, and he was invited along with seven other Thai players to train for six months at Premier League club Leicester City's Academy. The experience affected him positively, since he claimed that it had "enriched him greatly". Afterwards, the forward was loaned to Thai third division side Surin City where he scored 5 goals in 14 outings.
