Here is my best explanation:

'beginner' is the definition.

(entrant is a kind of beginner)

'natter about including new' is the subsidiary indication.

'about' indicates anagramming the letters.

'including' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'new' becomes 'n'.

'natter' with letters rearranged gives 'entrat'.

'entrat' placed around 'n' is 'entrant'.
