Two new signings on eve of Season


Mickleover Sports are delighted to announce the double signing of Jimmy Phillips and Jermaine Palmer!

Phillips, a 27-year-old winger, is best-known for his 137-game spell with Burton Albion in the Football League. He’s also been on the books at Gateshead, Altrincham and Alfreton.

Jermaine Palmer plies his trade up front, and at 30 years of age he has plenty of goalscoring experience. The Derby-born player started his career at Stoke City.

Both signings arrive as we finish off our preparations for our opening game of the season against Witton Albion tomorrow. We’re at home, so we look forward to seeing you at the Don Amott Arena for a 3 o’clock kick off!

Season starts this Saturday 12th August

Sports will be getting their 2017-18 Evo Stik Northern Premier League season started against promoted Witton Albion at the Don Amott Arena on 12th Aug KO 3pm. The Albs had three seasons on the Conference in the early 90s and will be a tough start for John McGrath’s young side.

United won the League One title last season after 6 seasons down there. They will be one of the teams to look out for to maybe reach the play-offs this season.

Sports supporters will be looking forward to the return of favourite Jake Bennett. Benno made 87 appearences for Sports scoring 4 goals, but more than that terrorising left backs. Benno has been doing well for the Blades Under 23s last season.

We also may see the return of Goalkeeper Jake Eastwood who played 23 times last season.
