Dempsey Arlott-John

D.O.B November 14th 2001

Signed just after the first week of the season  Dempsey Arlott-John  is a former Leicester City striker, having been a regular in the Under 23 and Under 18 sides in recent years and regular goal scorer, also having ahd a brief spell at Crystal Palace.

A pacey central striker who can also play on either wing, he made his Mickleover debut as a second half sub against Ashton Utd, before making his first start in the away defeat at Buxton.

Josh Satchwell

D.O.B.: October 11th 2002

A product of Sports own Academy, Josh mainly plays as a striker, but has shown his adaptability to play elsewhere when he has been used as a substitute.

He made one start in the Integro Cup in 2020, but came off the bench five times.

A regular member of the successful reserve team, and kingpin of the Midlands and National Academy Championship wining team last season.

He now plays as a wing or centre back as well as his more familiar striking role.

He has had trials at Coventry City and Fleetwood Town.

Declan Bacon

D.O.B.: August 7th 1995

Dec returned to the Don Amott Arena last season, having been a Mickleover player a few seasons earlier.

He finished 2019/20 with Gainsborough Trinity, after just over a year at Alfreton Town,

It was his goal scoring record of 45 in a season at Bottesford Town that brought him to the attention of Alfreton, but he has also played at Sheffield and Scarborough mong other teams.

He came back to us on loan from Gainsborough and quickly found his scoring form, as we hit the top of the table. That prompted Gainsborough to recall him, before a he came back to Mickleover permanently to complete the aborted 20/21 season.

If he hits the same vein of form as he did last season, he is one to watch.

Stuart Beavon

D.O.B: May 5th 1984

Stuart Beavon is one of Mickleover’s most experienced players, following in the footsteps of hisFather 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 a regular scorer for Mickleover last season and has already found the net in a number of pre-season games.

George Milner

D.O.B.: 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 during pre-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.
