Biography

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 Duffy 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.
