POSH IN QUICKLY TO NET DOVER’S MILLER
PETERBOROUGH have won the race to sign Ricky Miller, ending months of speculation about his future.
Boss Grant McCann is convinced the Dover Athletic forward will be a hit in the EFL.
The 28-year-old, who was born in Peterborough, scored 42 goals in 43 games for the Whites in the National League this season, earning him a move to League One as he put to pen to paper on a three-year deal on Wednesday.
Miller – who has also had spells at Boston and Luton – made the easy decision to sign for his hometown club, despite interest from plenty of other clubs.
McCann admits he was relieved to get the deal done after failing to sign the National League Player of the Year in January.
“I am delighted Ricky has signed. We are pleased it is all done and dusted now,” said McCann.
“He has been the top player in the Conference (National League), has scored over 40 goals and is a winner.
“He knows where the back of the net is and I am looking forward to working with him.”
While Miller is on his way to Posh, a number of players are expected to leave this summer, with 11 placed on the transfer list.
Forwards Adil Nabi, 23, and Shaquile Coulthirst, 22, midfielder Brad Inman, 25, and 28-year-old defender Michael Smith have been told to find new clubs.
Seven others have been transfer-listed as they still have one year left on their contracts.
That is a consistent policy at the ABAX Stadium.
It means that highly-rated midfielders Michael Bostwick, 28, and Marcus Maddison, 23, could leave, as well as the likes of 22-yearold forward Lee Angol, left-back Jerome BinnomWilliams, 22 and forward Jordan Nicholson, 23.
