Jamie Vardy recently launched a programme to help non-league players make their move to the Football League.
England international Vardy enjoyed a meteoric rise from non-league obscurity to Premier League winner in 2015/16 and is now handing other non-league stars the chance to climb up the football ladder.
Jamie Vardy’s V9 academy gives the best players in non-league the chance to showcase their abilities in front of a number of Football League scouts.
This has already had success with League Two side Stevenage snapping up Blair Turgott and Danny Newton.
The latest player who could benefit from this is Mikel Miller, who has been handed a trial by Sheffield Wednesday, according to the Mirror.
Mikel Miller currently plies his trade for Carshalton Athletic, who play in the Isthmanian League Division One South.
The jump from eight tier football to the Championship would be considerable but many are tipping the 21-year-old for big things.
After netting 35 goals in 88 games for Carshalton Athletic, Mikel Miller seemed to impress the Sheffield Wednesday scouts watching the V9 academy and he has earned himself a trial with the Owls.
Sheffield Wednesday currently have a number of strikers on their books, such as Jordan Rhodes, Fernando Forestieri, Sam Winnall, Steven Fletcher, Atdhe Nuhiu, Gary Hooper, Lucas Joao and George Hirst.
Mikel Miller will try to compete with these as he seeks to impress in pre-season and earn himself a contract.
Sheff Wed fans – would Miller be a good signing? Let us know below…
