Former Port Vale striker returns to football with ‘a point to prove’



Former Port Vale striker Ricky Miller is back in football after signing for National League side Aldershot Town.

The 31 year old had a year out of the game after leaving Vale.

A free transfer signing in the summer of 2018, he would score on his Vale debut and go on to score six goals in his 22 starts and 13 substitute appearances.

Miller’s career has been held back by off-the-field issues but he’s looking forward to getting started with Aldershot having previously enjoyed huge success in the National League.

He scored 21 goals for Dover in 2015/16, but even better was to come the following season as he netted 42 goals in 43 appearances.

That earned him a move to Peterborough before he joined Mansfield and then the Vale.

Miller told the Aldershot Town website: “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.”

Meanwhile, the Vale return to action this weekend when they are away to Mansfield. John Askey’s side are 20th, four places against the Stags and looking to build on Tuesday’s goalless draw at Bradford.

David Worrall, Cristian Montano and Mark Cullen all have a chance of being involved in Askey’s squad having returned to training this week.

James Gibbons is also back in training, following a hamstring operation, and could be in contention for the home game with Grimsby on January 9.
