His movements then took him via Morecambe, back to Grimsby and then Boston Utd in 2016. After a year at Alfreton he joined Matlock in 2018 for a two-year spell, before joining Basford.

He returned to Matlock for a short spell at the beginning of this year and completed his season with Telford. He has made over 100 appearances in the football league, scoring four goals.

Kai Moore

October 2nd 2003

A home grown talented young striker who worked his way from Mickleover Under 16’s into the 20/21 National and Regional Academy title winning squad.

He had a few games in the reserve team too, but was offered the chance to join Carlton Town at the beginning of last season 

During loans at Borrowash Victoria and latterly at West Bridgford, he began to prove his worth as a prolific goalscorer. 

10 goals in his last five games at West Bridgford and he was offered the chance to rejoin Mickleover towards the end of last season and is now as part of the first team squad, scoring his first senior goal at Bamber Bridge last March.

I worked hard on my confidence during the close season and that’s what made the difference

he admitted.

He has found the net in some of the pre-season games and is one for future.

Fin Barker

January 28th 2004

Having started his football journey at Aylestone Park Juniors, Fin came to the Mickleover junior ranks and was part of last seasons Regional and National Academy Championship winning team.

He originally had thoughts of becoming a goalkeeper rather than a goalscorer, until a coach at Derby County’s Moor Farm suggested otherwise.

But it was Aylestone coach Adam Hart that introduced him to the realisation of organised football and wanting to be part of it.

He has been a regular in the Mickleover Reserve side over the last two years and was top scorer with over 30 goals and made his NPL league debut for Mickleover as a second half substitute against Matlock Town in October.

He started this season on trial with Coventry City.

Jahvan Davidson-Miller

October 10th 1998

Jahvan arrived last November from Southern League-Premier Division Central League Barwell Town and is a former Derby County Junior.

A central striker or wide player, he joined Belper Town after his release from Derby in August 2017, before joining Kettering Town a year later.

He moved onto Barwell in late 2018, where he played his football until making his debut for Mickleover as a second half sub in the home win over Atherton Collieries.

He is still looking for his first goal and spent most of last season on he bench, but having found his scoring boots in this pre-season, he should start pushing for a place in the starting line-up.

Stuart Beavon

D.O.B: May 5th 1984

Stuart Beavon is one of Mickleover’s most experienced players, following in the footsteps of his Father Stuart and Grandfather Cyril.

His career started for in the Hellenic League with Ardley United, before swiftly moving on to Combined Counties side Wallingford. He scored 13 goals in 36 games between those clubs, before being snapped up by Didcot Town.

Despite stepping up to the Southern League South & West Division, he quickly found his goalscoring touch and had two seasons with the club. He played 139 games and scored an amazing 107 goals and was a winner in the 2004/5 FA Vase too.

His next step was to the Conference with Weymouth, spending three seasons on the South Coast, and adding 27 more goals to his tally from 90 appearances.

For 2008/09 he had his first spell in the Football League with League 2 Wycombe Wanderers. He scored on his debut and his initial loan became permanent.

He was a prolific scorer again but the team were promoted and relegated twice during his stay. After 125 games and 34 goals he moved to Preston North End in League 1 again.

There was debut goal again and having settled at Deepdale he stayed for two years, before an initial loan at Burton Albion became permanent for the 2014/15 season.

He gained promotion again with the Brewers to League 1, but part way into his third season he left in January 2017 with 15 goals and 102 games under his belt, destined for Coventry City.

A strange end of season saw the Sky Blues win the EFL Trophy, but were also relegated to League 2. Although he was a Coventry player for the next two seasons, his final one was spent on a years loan at Wrexham.

Early into the 2019/20 season he joined Nuneaton, but it was when he began his current connection at Mickleover that he regained his scoring touch, with a goal scoring debut at Atherton Collieries in September and scoring 10 before the season was curtailed.

He was been a regular scorer and hit the net on 10 occasions last season, including a hattrick in the 4-1 home win against Radcliffe.

George Milner

March 8th 1998

Having started at Chesterfield’s Academy as a 15 year old, George was given a two year youth team contract after only his second month.

He trained with the first team squad, after graduating into a regular reserve team player, but went out on loan to Clipstone in the second half of 2015/16 scoring two goals from his six games.

After being released by Chesterfield he had a dual registration for 2016/17 with both Buxton and Clipstone. He scored six goals for Clipstone in 16 games and two for Buxton in seven games, before leaving Clipstone for AFC Mansfield, where he saw out the season with another three goals from 10 games.

It was then he had the offer to play in Norway, a first full professional contract for Valdres.

He spent a season in Norway, but instead of his striker role, he started to play in midfield, but still scored 12 goals in his 26 appearances.

On his return to the UK he trained with Salford City, until international clearance allowed him to join Frickley Athletic for the rest of 2017/18.

He then moved to Belper Town where he was regular for the next two years, until bringing his attacking flare to Mickleover prior to the 2020/21 season.

A dynamo of a player who would run all day, creative, dangerous and wears his heart on his sleeve. A true asset to the club in every respect and a regular goal scorer.

He is hoping for a full season this time around, after a niggling ankle injury limited his input.
