Here we pick out some things that you might not know about new Rotherham United signing Mickel Miller.
A couple of weeks ago, Miller was announced as Rotherham United’s first signing ahead of the 2020/21 Championship season.
His name is very apt, but he does join the club after impressing both north and south of the border. Miller first earned admirers during his fledgeling career in the non-league with Carshalton Athletic.
After a few years cutting his teeth outside of the football league, his dream of playing league football was realised. In January 2018, his form was rewarded as he signed for Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical.
The Scottish market has already been utilised well by Rotherham as they have brought in the likes of Will Vaulks and Jamie Lindsay. Miller will definitely be happy if he can replicate their success during his time at the club.
To a lot of the Rotherham faithful, Miller is a bit of an unknown quantity. But we have looked into his career so far to pick out five things that you may not know about Rotherham’s new attacker!
Miller broke into Carshalton Athletic's 1st team when he was just 18
Miller got his first taste of senior football when he was just 18 years old. He came through the ranks for Sutton-based non-league outfit Carshalton Athletic, who at the time played in the Isthmian Premier Division. In April 2014, the forward made his full debut as his side beat Leiston 1-0. Carshalton were relegated down to the Isthmian Division One South at the end of the season, but in 2014/15, Miller became a mainstay in the team. He made 41 appearances in all competitions in his first full season, scoring eight goals in the process. He replicated this the season after, again scoring eight goals from his 38 appearances. It is massive for any player to get this much senior experience at such a young age. There is no doubt that all of this game time will have done wonders for Miller's development. He was thrown in at the deep end in men's football but he definitely made the most of his chance...
