CONFIRMED: Miller departs for Middlesbrough

Striker George Miller leaves Bury to join Championship Middlesbrough

14 July 2017

A product of the Shakers youth system, George Miller rose through the ranks quickly and was soon knocking on the door of the first team. After several years as the Youth Team’s leading scorer, George made his first-team debut for the club at Barnsley in February 2015 as a half-time substitute.

He would go on to make 32 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals. A popular lad within the dressing room, George leaves the Shakers with our very best wishes as he takes this next step in his young career.

Speaking to, manager Lee Clark said

“George is a great kid, he is hard working, conscientious and just wants to get better. He goes against the trait of your standard footballer because he is very down to earth. He doesn’t bother about the champagne lifestyle and all the trappings that come with being a footballer.

“He is a very down to earth boy. His move is very similar to James Vaughan’s move in terms of the size of the club he is going to, it’s an opportunity for him that is just too good to turn down. Until we get to that level when these clubs come calling, then we have to realise the position that we are in.”

The deal to take George to the Riverside will remain undisclosed, but as with all deal of players leaving the club, there are various clauses attached to the contract that will further benefit the club in the future.
