Mickel Miller lifts lid on Michael Duff chat as new boy reveals his Huddersfield Town ambition

Huddersfield Town signing Mickel Miller admits he’s “excited for the future” after joining his new club.

The 28-year-old completed his move to the Terriers last week, with the wing-back penning a two-year deal at Town after turning down the offer of a new contract at Plymouth Argyle.

Miller joins a club that are looking to bounce straight back to the Championship following their relegation last term, with the Terriers set to embark on their first League One campaign since 2012.

The recruit has been left impressed by the club’s desire to progress and is eager to kick on with his new side. “When I first sat down with him (Michael Duff), he was telling me his ambition of where the club are, where they want to be, how he wants to play, and it’s all exciting,” Miller told HTTV.

“Anyone that’s sitting there in front of him is going to be like ‘right let’s get going, where’s the paper, I’m ready’. I’m more than excited to see where the club’s going to go from this season, and just excited for the future to be fair.

“I’ve come from non-league, and I don’t put limits on where I can get to. When I’m sitting down with Mark (Cartwright) and the gaffer, and they’re telling me ‘listen, we’re going to bounce back and we’re looking to go again’, that’s what I want to hear.

“I’m not someone that’s just going to sit there and just [say] ‘oh, we’ll get promoted’. No, we want to keep going, keep going. I think everyone here will want the same, so it’s exciting.”

Miller joins the Terriers with the aim of securing a third promotion from League One in four seasons, having achieved the feat with the Pilgrims and Rotherham United in recent years.

The wing-back started his career at Carshalton Athletic in the Isthmian League, before going on to earn a move from Step Four of the non-league pyramid to the Scottish Premiership with Hamilton Academical.

Miller admits that his non-league background helps to keep him driven, and has vowed to bring a hardworking mentality to the club.

“I think anything’s just about hard work,” he said. “I’m a person that thinks if you work hard, you reap the rewards. That’s all I’m about, work hard and God will take care of the rest.

“I’d say [I’m] hardworking, exciting, and I give it my all. I’m not someone that just accepts losing or accepts mediocre. I want to work hard for the team, and if everyone’s on the same page, then we’re going to do well.

“Obviously I’ve been in non-league, so I know how it feels to not have. Now being here, why would I then go and relax, or get complacent? It’s not in me. I always remind myself of that.”

Miller was announced as Town’s second signing of the window, following Lasse Sorensen in joining the club, while Herbie Kane and Antony Evans have also since been recruited.

While Sorensen has featured in both of Town’s pre-season games, Miller, Kane and Evans could all get their first outings for the club at Harrogate Town this weekend, having not been involved against Guiseley.

Miller insists that both he and his team will give everything for the club and their supporters this season, saying: “I can’t wait to meet the fans. I hope we can get them up off their feet, even though last season probably wasn’t easy for them, and they come here and they support and give their all, and that’s fans everywhere.

“We can’t always perform for them, but I feel like we’re going to give our all. I hope everyone can give their all for them and for ourselves.”
