PADDY MILLER is looking to give the fans "something to celebrate" next season after returning to Tadcaster Albion.

The former Brewers captain has re-joined the club from Hyde United where he opted not to renew his contract due to travelling becoming “unsustainable”.

Miller won promotion to the Evo-Stik League premier division last season with Hyde and re-joins a Taddy side who will be playing north division football again next term following their 2-1 defeat at Bamber Bridge in the play-off semi-final.

The converted centre-back played 62 times for the Tigers, scoring seven goals and helping to keep 22 clean sheets. He will bolster a Tadcaster defence that recorded 17 clean sheets last term.

Miller said of his return: “I’m delighted to have joined Tadcaster again. It’s a fantastic club with brilliant people involved.

“When I left a few seasons ago I made no secret of how much I enjoyed my time here. The club has a brilliant reputation, not only in Yorkshire but throughout non-League. Hopefully we can build on that for the upcoming season and make it a successful one.

“Once I decided to leave Hyde I did have a few options but my heart was always saying come back to Tadcaster. I know the club very well and have some really close friends here also.

"Part of me since leaving has always felt like I’ve got unfinished business at Tadcaster.

“The fans when I played and even after I left have always been different class with me and hopefully we as a group can give them something to celebrate in the upcoming season.

“Promotion has to be the target next year. The boys had a brilliant season last year and were arguably one of the best footballing sides in the division.

"I thought they were very unlucky to miss out in the play-offs, but that’s football.

"Everyone will gain experience from that and it will make us stronger and more determined as a group for the upcoming campaign.

"Hopefully we can go one step further this time round.”

Boss Michael Morton said: “Myself and Simon (Collins, co-manager) are really looking forward to working with Paddy again.

"It’s a big capture for the club not just on the pitch but off it too. He’s top-class with the young lads and he will be a fantastic addition for all at the club.”
