Stocksbridge Park Steels have completed the signing of Josh Millen from Grantham Town.
The 19-year-old midfielder, who can also play at both full-back positions is a graduate from the Rotherham United academy but was released from the Millers this summer. As well has receiving a trial from Brentford, Millen spent some time with our first team in pre-season, playing in the friendlies against Stockport Town and Maltby Main. He was then signed by our reserve team before moving to Grantham Town for a short period of time.
Upon Millen signing with Stocksbridge, he said: “I was here prior as a reserve player and I’m pleased I can now be involved in the first team.”
“I’m a technical player, I like to get on the ball and try to play nice football if I can. I also like to mix it up in the middle of the park and when we haven’t got the ball I like to be physical.”
Stocksbridge manager Ian Richards described Millen as follows: “A technically good footballer with a great range of passing with both feet. Will only develop in training with our already established high quality midfielders.”
