Millership Signs for Academy

3 July 2013

Nine-year-old striker, Henry Millership is the latest youngster to sign a contract with the Spireites academy.

Millership, who originates from Retford, believes he can improve as a player at the club. 

He said: “It’s a big step for me, and I can enjoy myself even more now. It’s really good that I can have more time and get better at playing football.”

Henry’s footballing hero is Steven Gerrard, and he hopes to score goals like Liverpool striker, Luis Suarez. His dad, Mr Millership, is delighted with the deal.

He said: “I’m really proud of him. Thanks to Liam (Sutcliffe), Steve (Simpson) and Elliott (Flowers) from the football development school. 

“He came out of another club last season, and he was a bit down, but they’ve picked him up and brought him along and he’s got his due rewards, so thanks very much to the guys,” Henry’s dad added.

Head of Youth Recruitment, Liam Sutcliffe believes the deal is a positive one. He said: “The signing of Henry Millership from development to academy is a positive step in the relationship between the two. 

“Both Gerry Carr and I are really hopeful that we can recruit and develop more players to move towards our academy. It’s great news for Henry and his family, and all at the club wish him the best of successes as he continues his journey in our academy,” said Sutcliffe.
