Three Things Missed

In the week that saw us cross the half-way mark of the National League season we bring you three stories you may have missed this week.

Wrexham snap up Championship ace

Wrexham have signed highly rated Middlesbrough striker George Miller on loan until January.

19-year-old Miller, came through Bury’s academy alongside the Silkmen’s very own Scott Burgess and played 35 times for the Shakers scoring 8 goals.

Boro snapped him up in the summer, after an impressive breakthrough season at Gigg Lane and he’ll be looking to impress manager Dean Keates and gain valuable minutes at the Racecourse Ground.

Miller will be eligible to feature in Wrexham’s upcoming trip to Moss Rose and said, "It's a new challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it."

FA Cup ties decided for non-league clubs

National League side’s AFC Fylde and Woking have found out their fates in the next round of the Emirates FA Cup.

However, both clubs have to overcome replays against their respective opponents to reach the third round.

If AFC Fylde win their replay away at Wigan, a second away tie with Premier League side AFC Bournemouth will be waiting for them in the third round.

Whereas if Woking can overcome Peterborough in their replay, they will travel to face former European Cup winners Aston Villa in the next round.

Both replay’s take place on the 12th December.

Osborne returns to Moors

Grimsby Town midfielder Jamey Osborne has signed on loan with Solihull, returning to Damson Park only half a season after he left.

Osborne was an integral part of Solihull’s side as they survived in the National League last year.

A knee ligament injury halted his progress at Grimsby, so manager Russel Slade has allowed the 25-year-old to sign on an initial one-month loan.

He will look to regain his match fitness at Solihull, whilst attempting to keep them in the National League for a second time.
