Greg Mills leaves Stourbridge to join Bromsgrove Sporting


Midfielder Greg Mills has left Stourbridge to join BetVictor Southern League Premier Division Central rivals Bromsgrove Sporting.

A skilful and direct left-sided winger who can also play through the middle to great effect, Mills started out his career at Derby County where he progressed through their ranks to go on and make two first team appearances with his debut coming in October 2009.

He also spent time on loan with Solihull Moors, Macclesfield Town and AFC Telford United whilst on Derby`s books.

Following his release by the Rams, he signed for Vanarama National League North side AFC Telford on a permanent basis in August 2011, but with his opportunities limited, he subsequently joined Worcester City in January 2012.

He moved on to Boston United in March 2013 before signing for Barrow AFC that summer.

In October 2013 he joined King's Lynn Town on a month's loan before linking up with Corby Town the following month - again initially on loan.

Mills flourished at Steel Park, eventually joining the Steelmen on a more permanent basis and he spent two-and-a-half years with the Northamptonshire outfit, playing his part in their 2014/15 Southern League Premier title success with over 20 goals that season.

He moved on to Tamworth in the summer of 2016, but in January 2017 he joined Nuneaton Town where he was reunited with Tommy Wright, his former boss at Corby.

When Wright became manager of Darlington in November 2017, he soon agreed on a move to the north-east and he made 16 appearances for the Quaker's netting once.

He signed for Stourbridge in the summer of 2018 and as a key player, he scored 24 times last season to be outgoing manager Gary Hackett`s player of the year.
