Macclesfield Town
Posted:Tue 05 Dec 2017

Following the return of Alex Reid to Fleetwood Town at the end of his short-term loan, manager Dean Keates and his staff have managed to land an up and coming striker in George Miller from Middlesbrough FC.

Subject to delivery of his International Clearance, which the FAW has applied for, and acceptance of his registration by the National League, the 19-year-old will be looking to be eligible for this weekend’s visit to Macclesfield Town.

"It's a new challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it," said George.

"As a striker, you want to be scoring goals, doing well and making the fans happy.

"I'm an old fashioned style forward who runs the channels, works my socks off and will give everything for the club while I'm here.

"I've been scoring goals for Middlesbrough's development squad, but I want to be playing mens' football now.

"I had a really good few years at my home town club Bury.

"I know we won at the weekend, but I hope to get in the squad and hopefully on the pitch on Saturday, and get on the score sheet."

A native of Bolton, George came through the ranks with Bury and was a standout figure for the Shakers last season, making 35 appearances (many as a substitute) and scoring eight times in the same squad as Jack Mckreth.

His performances alerted many leading clubs and he finally moved to the Riverside Stadium during this past summer, on a three-year deal.

George has already played for Boro in both the EFL Cup and EFL Trophy, while also impressing for their U23s team, rattling in 11 goals to date in 14 games, as Boro lead the way in the PL2 - including their Mercedes-Benz Teesside Goal of the Month winner for November, from a 3-3 draw with Southampton.

This loan deal will seem him stay at the Racecourse until 6 January, giving him the chance to take part in seven games through the Festive period.
