Bury Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Tom Miller on a two-year deal.
The right-back began his career with a scholarship at Norwich City. From there, Miller went on to play for Rangers, Irish side Dundalk and Newport County, before joining Lincoln City in 2012.
Tom made more than 100 appearances for the Imps between 2012 and 2015 and was considered as one of the club’s most consistent performers during their spell in the National League.
In the summer of 2015, Tom's form with Lincoln earned him a move to the Football League with Carlisle United. He went on to make his Football League debut on 8th August 2015 in a 1-1 draw against Mansfield Town. During his three seasons with the Cumbrians, the 28-year-old made over 100 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals.
Today we spoke with Manager Ryan Lowe who said: “Tom is someone I have always liked as a player and Lee Dykes also worked closely with Tom for three-years at Carlisle.
“Tom is a great pro with good experience in this league. He fits the bill of what we are looking for, so as soon as we knew he was available, we wanted to meet with him. Once he told me what he could give me and the team, it was a no-brainer. Tom can also play in many positions which is always a plus.”
Miller spoke of his delight at signing, saying: “I'm happy to have signed. I think it's going to be a good season for the club, obviously, last season didn't go so well, but I think that we are building well, we've signed some good players and there are some good players already at the club.
“I know the Gaffer, and I get on really well with him. He's good at what he does, and so is Schuey.
“The club has good ambition for the season ahead. We're a club that are going to push to be up there, and as a player that's always something which you want to be a part of, so when the opportunity came I jumped on it.
“I was at Carlisle with Nicky Adams, and he spoke very highly of the club, the fans and everybody involved with it, so as soon as he told me about it, I jumped on the opportunity and worked my hardest to get everything sorted.”
