Nicky John has been chatting to some familiar faces from the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League. This week, she chats to gap Connah’s Quay’s top scorer so far this season, Sean Miller.
How are you enjoying your first season of Welsh Premier football at the Nomads?
I am really enjoying my time with Connah’s Quay and I feel I’ve settled in quite well thanks to the lads and the management staff.
I’m pleased with the game time I’ve been getting since day one, which is helping me develop massively.
You joined the club back in the summer. Where did you play before then?
I was at Chester FC for three years as an u17 and u18 player, then was awarded a one year contract with the first team but spent that year out on loan at several clubs in the Evo-Stik League.
You’ve played in a couple of different positions so far this season – do you have a favourite?!
I enjoy playing right wing back – a position where I’ve played the majority of the season, although I prefer attacking more than defending so I would have to say right or left wing.
You’re still only 19 years old. Have any of the older players taken you under their wing to help you settle in?!
I already knew George Horan and Kevin McIntyre who also signed during the summer, so settling in hasn’t been a problem!
You remain the club’s top goal scorer so far this season – which has been your favourite goal up to now?
My best goal to date would have to be the one against Bangor at home during the first half of the season. It was a tough game and to score the winning goal after a quick counter attack was great.
There are 7 games remaining in the league – Where are you aiming to finish the season?
We’re aiming to finish as high as possible, and our main target is 7th. It would be great to achieve that.
You also have a big cup game coming up at home to The New Saints – can you get passed them and continue your Welsh Cup run?
TNS are a tough side to play against but we are going into every game we play feeling very confident, and coming out with a positive result.
What’s your earliest football memory?
The earliest I can remember is playing up at Liverpool’s Academy when I was 5 years old. I scored a few goals back then as well! Haha!
Whats the best game you’ve ever been to see as a fan?
Newcastle v Liverpool at St James’s Park in 2013. Liverpool won the game 6-0.
What do you do when you’re are not playing football?
I work in Business and Admin at an accountants.
Which opposition players have most impressed you?
Rob Hughes for Rhyl. He is a good, tricky player who stood out for me in our recent game.
What music do you like to listen before a game?
Kev McIntyre usually brings his boom box in, and we just listen to whatever the lads want to put on – whatever anyone fancies, really!
Which of your own team mates has impressed you the most this seaon?
Jack Riley has impressed me recently, he came in several games ago and hasn’t put a foot wrong!
Who works hardest in training?
If you could swap places with anyone else for a day, who would it be and why?
A millionaire, so that I could have the freedom to do whatever I wanted!
On this day in 1911 the first ever game was played at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, home of Genoa and Sampdoria.
