Tom Miller made his
first start for Norwich's Academy Under-18 side on Saturday 21st
January 2006 in a 2-0 win over Charlton Athletic.
He joined the academy as a full-time scholar in July 2006. Tom,
from Ely, can play as either a defender or a midfielder. He was
with Ipswich Town before joining the Canaries.
n April 2008, Norwich announced that they would not be giving Tom
a professional contract, He then trialled with Southend United but
also called upon the help of for Norwich Assistant Manager Jim
to use his contacts to arrange trials in Scotland.
Miller said: "Jim helped me a lot when he was here and
I got to train with the first team then. He said if I ever had
any problems to call him so I sent him a text and he spoke to
Rangers. They are such a big club and you don't expect to be linked
with someone as big as them."
Rangers stepped in and flew the midfielder to Glasgow for a specially-arranged
trial game. Miller was a stand-out in the closed-doors match for
Rangers with his side comfortably winning. Miller's father, Ray,
added: "They won the match 5-1 and Tom was taken off before
the end because they said they'd seen enough and wanted to get
him training with the first team." They then offered
him a two year contract
Miller said "I can't wait to get up there and make a
fresh start. I'm really looking forward to it."
In February 2010, Tom signed for Irish side Dundalk following
a successful trial
Tom joined Conference side Newport County in January 2011
He moved to fellow Conference side Lincoln City on 22nd March
2012. Imps boss David Holdsworth said of the defender-midfielder:
"He gives us a bit of squad depth for the final few weeks
of the season. He's got a long throw which adds another dimension
to our play."
After making 118 appearances for Lincoln, he moved to Carlisle
United on 11th June 2015. "It's a deal we've worked hard
to get over the line," said Carlisle's head of recruitment
Lee Dykes. "He's a player we tried to get a couple of
times last season. It's one we feel will have a positive impact,
particularly with the type of player and character he is."
He was released by Carlisle on 8th May 2018 after making 108 appearances.
