Aldershot Town are delighted to announce the signing of forward Ricky Miller!
The 31 year-old spent his youth career in both League One side Charlton Athletic’s and local rivals Woking FC’s youth systems, before successful spells within non-league that saw the forward earn moves into the EFL with the likes of Luton Town, Peterborough United, Mansfield Town and most recently Port Vale.
But it was in the National League systems where Miller played his best football, scoring 28 goals in 46 games for National League North side Boston United in 2013-14, before going onto to score 22 goals in 54 games in the National League with Dover Athletic in 2015-16.
However it was the season after in 2016-17 that saw Miller’s best return of goals in professional football, scoring 45 goals in 46 games for Dover as they narrowly missed out on a play-off position, with the forward finishing the season as top scorer in the National League, 15 goals clear of second-placed Christian Doidge.
Having had a year out from football, Miller will relish coming back into the National League and both he and Aldershot Town will be hoping he replicates the same kind of form he showed the last time he played at this level, as he looks to be involved in our derby away trip to Woking this Saturday.
He will wear number 30 during his time with us at Aldershot Town.
Ricky said upon his arrival at the club: “I’ve got a point to prove that I’m still capable of what I’ve done.
“I feel fitter than I did at Dover and I’ve come a long way since then as well, so I’m hoping I can pick up where I left off.”
Welcome to Aldershot Town Ricky!
